How come I never see any any Todd-o-phonic Todd shirts or merch on the radio website?
Avatar 3:36pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Ironbound: Maybe because my show is too popular and there aren't any leftovers from the marathon?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm mariano:

Oh man, a little Neil Innes, hits the spot. RIP to a great artist.

Saw Neil at City Center playing during set changes at Python's live show back in the day. His folk persona's opening line was "I've suffered for my music, now it's your turn" RIP

Dean has yet another cameo in Marriage Story, which is a great movie if you like to watch people yelling at each other for two hours.

Whoa Todd, CAR WHEELS was a long way from Lucinda's debut (which was in 1979 on the folk/blues label Folkways) -- but I'm sure you know that, you just misspoke!
Avatar 4:52pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Will Well we are both wrong...I was referring to The Rough Trade album which many consider her debut, but yes was not her actual first album. But did not reference Car Wheels.
Avatar 4:53pm Fredericks:

I almost posted the following:
Will: that was version was from her debut. The Car Wheels one was an update.

I found a reason....to keep listening! Great show, Todd.

I'm referring of course to the original Screamin' Jay track, one of the many R&B songs the Fab 4 covered in their early years!
