They did Gloria by Them if you can find it.......according to the WFMU band browser WFMU has NEVER played it! I get the impression WFMU thinks Blues Traveler sucks.

Fellow East Banananers,

The Affairs Committee of the East Banana Supreme People's Assembly, the basic mission of which is to promote friendly relations with peace-loving people, bitterly condems you for not pledging any money to the WFMU cause. It is an intolerable insult to the East Banana people, a declaration of war against the Democratic East Banana Republic (DEBR) and a grave threat to free-form radio.

So please pledge NOW!
