Too many fish in the sea sounds like it'd smell bad but it could benefit marine mammal species.

We saw Sly and the Family Stone play live in NYC 1968. They were great!
Avatar 9:38pm Mailman Tom:

Little Richard was in a serious auto crash back in the 1990s and was badly injured. I'm guessing this is why he's in a wheelchair now.

It's always a welcome rare treat to hear you, Dennis, on WFMU. I can count on hearing Del Shannon every time! A track from his Tom Petty produced album tonight is appropriate. Thanks for keeping up this tradition.
Avatar 10:18am Michael Shelley:

Boy, that Q song is a #1 hit if I ever heard one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Daddy-o Dilly:

Dennis: I can always count on you to include a great lesser-known record by Del Shannon. Thanks again for keeping up this tradition.
