  In the first mic break, I briefly discussed my teenaged attempt at running dental floss up my nostril and out of my mouth -- an idea whose many flaws became evident to me only after many years of consideration, and with a piece of dental floss lodged in my skull.

So what's your best parlor trick? And has it ever produced disastrous results when performed in public?

Listener comments!

hi Mike!

i may not have any of the 7" 45s that you played, but i *do* have the 7" of "I Do the Rock" from way back when . . .

p. s. -- pray tell, where do you partake of the Jersey Chore?
  Tue. 6/12/07 1:54am pete in LA:

143 + 1 = ?

ps. don't stop (believin')
  Tue. 6/12/07 11:32am Wilderness Colorado:

I once performed the Hamburger in mixed company at a Thanksgiving day family celebration after also going hunting in the basement for inspiration and my own special version of New Belgium 1554....ah the pace of social change doth happen slowly....PEACE.

I agree, Rock n Roll dreams do not come true, because when you form a band everyone acts like they're a cast member from"Lost"!
  Tue. 6/12/07 5:11pm jeff:

dude... i'm not sure anything's gonna touch the m.i.a. dental floss story. that's top shelf stuff.

thanks for the can tune. i'd never heard it before.
  Tue. 6/12/07 9:40pm Listner Michael W.:

I was just gonna say that Marshall Crenshaw song you played was awesome, except, er, that it's actually Sloan.

I enjoyed this set tremendously. The Cramps track you played takes me back to Jersey City, Staten Island circa 1984 when I was a Cooper Union student.
"Off the Bone" was the original LP...I think.
It had a trippy 3-D cover. Most or all of the songs made it onto "Bad Music..."

Anyway thanks for doing what you do. It helps keep me sane in my windowless cube.

Peas and carrots,

  Sun. 6/17/07 4:08pm Steve:

Good set! The Cramps' The Human Fly is from their 1979 Gravest Hits album -- their first, I believe -- an EP with 5 songs.
  Tue. 6/19/07 10:43am brandonesque:

ah, the salad days for the session sax player. What happened to them all, do you think? Is there like a retirement village for them in Florida?
