Listener comments!

  Sat. 1/1/11 11:07am Seminal:

Hawking.. cool
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:07am Peter:

First, happy New Year!

Second, it occurred to me, that this is what people think Stephen Hawking sounds like. I wonder, if in his dreams, he hears himself speak that way.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:09am paul:

Todd or MS today?
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:13am David:

Welcome back, Michael Shelley!
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:21am seang:

euro-trash girl!
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:26am David:

I may have jumped the gun.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:27am Parq:

Happy New Year, Michael. The Veskelka people tell me it's National Bloody Mary Day. Me, I'm gonna make do with a nice cup of coffee.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:27am paul:

I'm thinking we're DJ-less today.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:27am seang:

the volume is turned way up!
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:28am Michael:

Here too - very loud
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:30am Michael:

I used to enjoy the cabbage soup at Veskelka
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:31am David:

Ok dj, show your face (voice) now!
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:32am Jay:

They are right about Bloody Mary Day.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:36am Bad Ronald:

Sweet EC track Michael, thanks. Happy New year everyone! Parq: get the cold borscht or some pierogis!
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:37am paul:

wfmu on autopilot?
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:40am David:

This will most definitely be the fewest songs ever played on a Michael Shelley show.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:42am paul:

I would think there would be more shows, since there is no talking. Or are you referring to the length of the songs?
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:43am evan:

Happy New Year, Michael! Tokyo Storm Warning certainly a #1 hit!
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:43am paul:

meant "songs", not shows
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:44am Peter:

A lot of years ago, I was a temp word-processor, and worked with P.E.'s "media assassin", Harry Allen.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:44am David:

I bet Brainen stole all the mics.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:45am paul:

Captain & Tennille and Public Enemy. Interesting mix today. And not one country nugget.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:45am Jim:

Don't believe the Type
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:46am paul:

Brainen stole the Mikes, too.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:48am David:

That was a good one!
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:48am Peter:

The Captain & Tennille later joined Public Enemy.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:48am paul:

Thank you, sir.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:50am paul:

Back in the day, the Captain and Tennille were public enemy #1.
Remember Muskrat Love?
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:51am Peter:

Michael Jackson and Elvis are both textbook cases of why you shouldn't drop out of school after your first record goes to #1.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:52am Parq:

Ah yes, a reminder that we have just begun the second full calendar year of a world without Michael Jackson.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:52am paul:

Bigfoot vs the Commissioner. MS must be in the house.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:52am Peter:

What would prime-time tv have been without Captain & Tennille, Shields & Yarnell, Pink Lady & Jeff? All of them had their own shows.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:53am paul:

You left off the Starland Vocal Band.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:55am Parq:

It all comes back to Sonny and Cher.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:55am paul:

True, Parq.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:56am Bad Ronald:

Tony Orlando and Dawn?
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:56am Peter:

Sonny and Cher had real talent, as musicians, and weren't bad as a comedy team.

I think Starland was on John Denver's label, or something like that. FWIW, a few years ago, at the Woody Guthrie tribute at Banjo Jim's, the son of someone from Starland (I can't remember his name), sang a song, and he was really, really good.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:56am Dino:

Can I buy this? Wow!
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:56am paul:

Peter, Paul & Parq. Coming to TBS in 2011.
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:57am Peter:

Bigfoot versus the Commissioner is like something from "The Uncle Floyd Show."
  Sat. 1/1/11 11:59am paul:

Used to love S&C and Cher's skimpy outfits.
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:01pm Peter:

Yes, those were the days, when Chastity Bono was a girl, and Michael Jackson, still recognizably human.
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:01pm paul:

lol
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:03pm paul:

Longest song intro in recording history.
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:05pm paul:

It's a tough call. But I think I'm switching to college football.
Happy New Year, all.
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:09pm Richard from Venezuela:

Happy new year my friends.
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:09pm Parq:

Wait, Chastity Bono had a sex change? Whoa, gotta look this up.
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:10pm Paul the Feeder:

Great intro, though. Makes me want to break out her Out of Different Bags album.
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:13pm Bad Ronald:

Per Wikipedia: "A documentary about this sex change was made by Bono. Negotiations as to who will get the movie are still ongoing"
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:17pm Jeezy:

Wow... Best Michael Shelley show ever?!
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:31pm smarthillbilly:

where be the country classics?
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:33pm Pete:

awesome... ACE!!!
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:34pm Nancy:

nice....
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:35pm frenchee:

Hi Michael! Hi Michael! MICHAEL?
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:35pm Peter:

I'm happy for her. I believe she's happily married now. As for Michael Jackson, he clearly was never happy with who he became.
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:37pm smarthillbilly:

I'm also wait'n fur GLEE to do a SWEET or PAPERLACE epesode
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:38pm Michael:

I have never seen Glee - would I like it?
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:39pm Burgess:

There's a thematic undercurrent here. And beyond the two songs referencing Barcelona. And beyond the NYC references & musical similarity of NY Groove & Fox on the Run. Btw the segue from Eurotrash to Rolling Stone was brilliant, not only musically, but contentwise, viz Maria L.'s critique of gutterpunks on Pseu's show.
Meanwhile back to the theme, but..?
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:42pm smarthillbilly:

not if yur over 17 and male
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:44pm Peter:

if > 17 AND (male) , AND (heterosexual) = NO.
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:49pm smarthillbilly:

THANK YOU
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:52pm paul:

Was 1971 really 40 years ago?
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:54pm frenchee:

"may your next diy project NOT look like you made it yourself"--classic
  Sat. 1/1/11 12:57pm David:

Thanks for playing great music in 2010. Looking forward to hearing more #1 hits in 2011.
  Sat. 1/1/11 1:03pm david in denver:
