Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/18/17 12:14pm Mike Sin:

Hell Joe -- Listening live today and so glad. All of Pat D tributes on WFMU have been touching. It's so great to revisit all of these fine tracks... the power of the music has such a positive effect.

Avatar Mon. 12/18/17 12:15pm Santos_L_Halper:

hey JB: love that the 'FMU DJs are spinning this less played live stuff instead of the same ol' for the smithereens tribute(s)!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/18/17 12:15pm Mike Sin:

That should be "Hello Joe" of course!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/18/17 12:16pm V Priceless:

this is great!
  Mon. 12/18/17 12:17pm Jeff formerly from Rahway:

Is this Who cover from the Smithereens “Live” CD EP? I still have my well-worn copy!
  Mon. 12/18/17 12:18pm Bluesman:

I believe Mike Sin took me to my first Smithereens show. Thanks Mike!
  Mon. 12/18/17 12:19pm Amy:

The Seeker was a great choice of cover for them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/18/17 12:25pm V Priceless:

"A Date With The Smithereens" and "God Save The Smithereens" are both excellent as well : )
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/18/17 12:29pm Mike Sin:

@Bluesman -- Hey Blues! I first saw the Smithereens at a club on Bloomfield Ave in Montclair/Bloomfield. Were you with me? I just can't remember the name. It wasn't the Dirt Club... it was farther west on Bloomfield Ave. I think they were on a bill with the Mosquitoes... this was 1984 or 1985... I know I then saw then on a few bills with the Fleshtones around NYC shortly after... Lone Star Cafe and such....
  Mon. 12/18/17 12:35pm Bluesman:

@Mike - That doesn't ring a bell. I believe at one point you and I saw them with the Vipers and/or Mosquitoes - possibly the Lone Star (downtown era). I wish I had been more organized and kept a written history of such life-changing events.
  Mon. 12/18/17 12:36pm frenchee:

best Christmas song I've heard in forevah. Thanks, Joe.
  Mon. 12/18/17 12:37pm Spaceman One:

A bit of Conor Oberst in the vocals.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 12/18/17 1:35pm Mike Sin:

Video included with the next live band? Cool. Time to bust out another gizmo (tablet?) and watch/listen through that. I'll be switching from broadcast signal to stream in a couple of minutes -- I hope I don't hurt myself... but, I'm sure I'll confuse myself... Have really been enjoying the show today.
