You are such a WFMU provocateur playing the Eagles on this show and Billy Joel on a past one. Morning Mikey!

Freeform, baby!

Oh Mike, don't you scatch my itch sweet Annie Rich.
  Sat. 4/21/12 6:41am Jeremy in the UK:

Hoping your show and perhaps all you commenters can help me come up with 11,000 words for a thesis chapter this morning. All you children of the morning, you

Hello Brian!
  Sat. 4/21/12 7:00am kenny:

I was wondering why the program sounded so un-jeffrey like today. Anyway I saw the festival express documentary and I didn't see Tom Rush ...not performing anyway although there was a very brief glimpse of him in the bar car
  Sat. 4/21/12 7:01am Dave in PA:

Really diggin the sounds this AM - Mike Sin has found me out!
  Sat. 4/21/12 7:03am Brian in UK:

Ifyoubelievein is a real eyeopener. Found in his mum's garage or somesuch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/21/12 7:05am Mike Sin:

Kenny - Good luck! Thanks, Dave!
  Sat. 4/21/12 7:09am Jeremy in the UK:

Man, this is like one my favourite corners of my iPod, but scattered with gems I've never heard. The Zombies, though, are very familiar & beloved. Not getting much writing done however
  Sat. 4/21/12 7:19am marika:

does anybody know a girl band from the 60s that sings about boys?? the topics and sometimes even the lyrics coincide... "baby please don't go lalalalaa" or "please go, i had enough of your lies lalalaaa" etc....
  Sat. 4/21/12 7:31am tinaun:

this is fascinating, i should get some of these comps
  Sat. 4/21/12 7:32am kat330:

Hi, Mike and fellow babies! Love the morning theme you have going.
  Sat. 4/21/12 7:38am jamaica john:

Morning, great version of Bowie's song. I only knew the one that was on a BBC Bowie Comp performed live in studio. This one is very diifferent. Thanks!

Hi Kat330! Hi Jamaica John!
  Sat. 4/21/12 7:54am Brian in UK:

Mike, Freedom, was that two dropouts from Procol Harum?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/21/12 8:00am Mike Sin:

Brian -- Yes!
  Sat. 4/21/12 8:09am SmokinJ:

Mike: Fantastic!
  Sat. 4/21/12 8:11am kat330:

Heads up, Brian: No "Shelley My Love" will be heard in the Lowe spectacular today. I tried, sigh. I bought the track, though, and I play it to my heart's content. :)
  Sat. 4/21/12 8:11am newb:

Wow, so much talking, thats tough
  Sat. 4/21/12 8:13am kat330:

  Sat. 4/21/12 8:20am Bluesman:

Good morning Mike Sin! Enjoying the sweet am sounds!
  Sat. 4/21/12 8:20am Philo Gristle:

Great set, Mike! Love the crackle of vinyl. Grew up with Pebbles more than Nuggets. Vols 9 & 10 (vinyl) remain absolute faves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/21/12 8:28am Mike Sin:

Hey Blues! Hi Philo - Thanks!
  Sat. 4/21/12 8:44am Brian in UK:

Hey kat330, dipped out there, Stage Fright always does it for me. Rick Danko's voice.
Jason Isbell's Danko/Manuel is a wonderful kind of tribute song.
  Sat. 4/21/12 8:44am Thierry in France:

Been listening for an hour or more. Nice Taste!
  Sat. 4/21/12 8:48am Therese:
