Sat. 7/3/10 3:42pm
Mike, you've got the Cherry Blossom Clinic fully happenin! That Cryan Shames song is even on Terre T's 2008 marathon premium! You are some kind of savant.
As a dual Citizen of Canada and the USA, I would like to say that my heart was touched by the love.

Greg Kihn is a DJ in the Bay Area (KFOX) now. I'm not crazy about the AOR that they play but he's OK- good on air. Haven't heard the DB's in years!

DJ Terre T:
Wasn't Klaatu rumored to be a Beatles secret side project or something? What's the story behind that?
Sat. 7/3/10 5:51pm
The Immoral Mr.Teas:
This comments section is useless without pictures!
Sat. 7/3/10 10:54pm
Klaatu was a Toronto-based combo whose music was compared to the Beatles in the 1970's. Their record company did nothing to dispel the persistent rumors that they were actually the Beatles, effectively torpedoing their career when the truth became known. The word klaatu is also part of the phrase "Klaatu barada nikto" that is widely acknowledged as having saved mankind from the wrath of the uber-robot Gort in 1951.

Hey! Thanks to all those who tuned in or listened online and left comments! It was a gorgeous day during a holiday weekend, and I surely appreciate those who somehow fit listening to this show into their day.
I really enjoy doing these fill-in spots.
