Wow! What are the odds that I JUST got home and hear my name on the radio. I feel so special! Thanks, Todd O! I've seen high heeled roller skates. They're crazy bananas.

Suzy Hotrod! That *was* exciting. Hope to hear you some during Marathon!

Hiya, John!

How great is this song by Cheap Trick? Just pure wonderful adrenaline!
  3:08pm John from Florham park:

@Suzyhotrid that must tickle you pink
  3:09pm John from Florham park:

@Todd it is so nice to hear a cheap trick song that does not get played too often
Avatar 3:10pm Hoboken Jack:

Hi Todd, Matt, Suzy, everybody!! Can't wait for the incredible SHIVAS!!!

Anyone else catch Bush Tetras last night?
  3:14pm John from Florham park:

@Handy how was it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Handy Haversack:

Great! They really sounded good. Had never seen them perform before. Super tight musically, *esp.* the rhythm section. Nice sound at LPR, too. Had never seen a show there. Managed to find a Manhattan bar not chock full of assholes afterward, too.
Avatar 3:17pm Hoboken Jack:

Florham John, I think I like it! Honoken.
  3:17pm John from Florham park:

@Handy miracles do happen at times
Avatar 3:18pm Hoboken Jack:

Coincidentally, I first heard the Shivas on Calvin's short-lived podcast.
  3:18pm P-90:

Just don’t say “Homoken”

Hey everybody!! Back home just in time for the live set - PHEW! :D SO digging the new record, Shivas - Cheers from north of the 49th!

My Preciousesses... HBKN JK & JFFP - you guys are hilarious - you should mount a Vaudeville show... I'm serious... or at least a podcast ;p>--/--{
  3:30pm John from Florham park:

@Spinning giant that’s a thought
  3:30pm Claudia from the Mobile Alabama:

Great playlist. Great to hear the Shiva's live again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm Tommy in Neversink:

The live sound engineering at FMU is getting to be pretty dang professional. This sounds like a CD. In the past the vocals were always too loud and in instruments too low. It has greatly improved lately
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Tommy in Neversink:

Helps when you have great bands to work with !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Handy Haversack:

This sounds fan-damn-slam-tastic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Spinning Giant:

Ya I was gonna say - the live sound is pretty f-ing fly - have no idea what kind of room /set-up you're running there, Todd, but it sounds spectacular - and man, the band is toight!! Seriously considering jumping in the car tomorrow and heading to Toronto for the show there - for any fellow Canuckleheads in the Ontariario area, they're playing the Monarch Tavern, which is a pretty great spot - tickets available thru the band's website...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm Handy Haversack:

Good question, Todd! That's what I come for.

For me:
Medieval Madness
Theater of Magic
World Cup '94

Can't go wrong with those!
Avatar 3:47pm Hoboken Jack:

Hot set!! They get better and better. Geldof may be inspired to Live Aid 2020.
  3:49pm Freeze:

Gee I wonder who that was about?

  3:57pm McGroovey:

I want to get "Colorado", but the CD doesn't include all the songs, and the LP is too Fing expensive. Whadda conundrum.
Avatar 3:58pm MFlynn:

Love this Pinegrove song!
  4:00pm yes:

:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Spinning Giant:

Love this duet w/ Hope & Kurt - great cut from a great record - her voice sounds as buttery and delicious today as it did the first time I heard it on So Tonight That I Might See...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Handy Haversack:

Real nice.
  4:07pm Sylvia's Mother:

Can you get there from here?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm Spinning Giant:

here, there, everywhere...it's all good Todd..we're enjoying the trip :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm Matt Clarke:

Great show Todd. I've been lurking and walking the dog.

Thanks Matt!
Avatar 4:11pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Bob Geldof coming up soon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm Handy Haversack:

Todd, in case anyone ever asks whether your show provides appropriate music for bathing a highly resistant pit bull mix, you assure them you got 'em covered!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Hughie Considine:

Haven't heard this much Boomtown Rats on the radio since the glory days of WPIX-FM ("From Elvis to Elvis").
Avatar 4:18pm Strandlund:

You know how to kick-start a weekend, Todd!

@Hughie when WPIX FM had a format of the month
Avatar 4:25pm Strandlund:

Mass Shooter Anthem...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm Cmurtha:

I wonder if there is "fan" art that blends Spencer and Garfield, and if not we need to change that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm Hughie Considine:

@Strandlund That station was an education, as is WFMU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm Handy Haversack:

I think this song is still not played on a lot of California radio stations.

But it's a gem!
Avatar 4:28pm Strandlund:

It is...Handy
  4:28pm John from Florham park:

@Handy I would think not kind of a sick song
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm Cmurtha:

I have been loving the show today thus far. I don't think I've ever listened to A Tonic For the Troops and now I am gonna have to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm Hughie Considine:

Gotta say, Todd has hit all the best Rats tracks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi Todd. I have a question today: By the way, which one's "Pink"?
  4:36pm P-90:

Maybe ask Roy Harper?
Avatar 4:36pm Strandlund:

@Hughie...I've always said, "If everyone listened to WFMU, the world would be a better place!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Spinning Giant:

no no no no no no no no no

@Strandlund yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes

Oh there’s a documentary too? Interesting...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

They say it's hard to drink from a well you're well into
- so it's always amazing to hear someone like Geldof here observe & articulate so well what we all feel about what Rawk & the CounterCulture mean to us. A Movement.

Well said, RR11/63.

Yes! Can see Jerry Lee climbing all over his piano during that show
