Someone told me recently that I must be a space cadet for being a fan of Todd-O-Phonic Todd. I was amazed he knew that Todd’s swag socks are in fact made from the same material as the socks worn on the international space station!

Todd is also a big fan of Tang!

Too bad explicit instructions not to play Stump the Band are needed, but apparently requesting Van Halen's "Eruption" is the new "Free Bird!"

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Hughie Considine:

As great a song as that one is, I shudder to think of the untold clowns who were discouraged from clowning by it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Handy Haversack:

Oh shit! GREAT request, whoever this was. Wow. This one goes all the way in.
  3:31pm Lc.:

You know your listeners are on their game when someone thinks to request a song by the *brother* of one of the greatest songwriters we’ve ever known. Bravo on the perfect choice

I’m with @adampsyche - do I need to volunteer or donate to get in next year? Maybe wearing my Mr Met tee shirt gets me in?

You can’t medley one song. Just saying.
