Anyone else see The Cramps at Boston's Avalon circa 1999? Lux took it out during Surfin' Bird, which would have been gross if it had been anyone else. But Lux doing it just felt polymorphous perverse in the friendliest of ways.

Call the Police reminds me of one of my favorite memories of having Todd-o-phonic as a roommate. I called him up and was momentarily confused when the person on the recorded message identified himself as our next-door neighbor Doug. Had I misdialed? I didn't even know Doug's number. Then I realized Doug had called Todd to complain about the volume he was playing records, and Todd had turned it into his outgoing message.

Todd, as a special birthday gift to you, I'm going to try sincerity: This may be the best birthday party guest list I've ever been a part of! It's sure one hell of a tribute to you that you're able to attract so many of my favorite people here!

Back inside! The new neighbors now know a lot more about Sparks than they used to -- can only improve them! That was a great interview, Todd, and the show continues to sparkle!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm dale:

@Joe B: Present company definitely included in that Todd-o-phonic Honor Roll!
Avatar 5:39pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Franz: Yes, there is. If you are having trouble with the app I will send you an email with a work around.

There's a joke in there somewhere....
  5:46pm Franz:

I normally use the App to listen all the previews shows/podcasts on demand, but i dont find where to click to listen LIVE
  5:46pm BH:

for the time being, pop music has been renamed Op Music
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm Handy Haversack:

That's why he's not Todd-o-ponic Todd.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm Jim H:

Franz: Upper right of main screen: "Audio". Touch it, a new screen appears with multiple Streams choices. At least on my iphone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm Therese:

Todd! Happy Birthday!

“Todd is the best. Happy. Birthday Todd. Woof woof!”

  5:48pm BH:

correction... there's multiple Ps in pop.. so... it's now O Music... or it's just omitted instead
  5:49pm Fredericks:

Happy birthday, Todd Oh.

This was a Day One purchase for me.
Avatar 5:50pm Michael Shelley:

Got my TOT socks today!
  5:51pm franz:

Thanks Jim! For some reasons I can only see the options for On Demand, but now i clicked the Reminder of the love show and the app changed totally settings...weird! Probably I should just buy a decent phone...

Nailed it, Ken.

What a great show today, Todd! Happiest of days to you -- I think I can guess that bringing radio joy to other people brings YOU joy -- so this should really be one hell of a bday present for you!

Kate and I told our chores where to freaking stick it once we heard your show get going!

Thanks, Todd!
