  3:22pm Nate the K:

Hey Terre. You dont have to spell it out for us! Boogaloo!

(Sounds great.)
  3:29pm dave:

yay! huskers!
  3:30pm Spoony:

I took a stand and saw The Parting Gifts last night and they were AMAZING. Greg tears it up every time and he's surrounded himself with such great talent.
  3:55pm snake:

I just played a show with the Myelin Sheaths. I ate thirty chicken wings before we played and got so dehydrated that I fell asleep after our set and missed them. Whups.
  4:04pm Debbie D:

All I want for xmas is that Syl Johnson box set!
  4:10pm A Fan:

Next up: The New Lou Reeds with special guest vocalist the New Laurie Anderson?
  4:38pm Terre T:

@A Fan- har!
@Debbie D- Leave Santa 8 LPs worth of (soy) milk and cookies!
@Snake- Go vegan and you'll never miss the Myelin Sheaths or any other rockin' band again!
@Spoony- Isn't Greg the best?!?! He never disappoints!
@Nate the K: Pawlie B says hi!
@Everyone else- Thanks for listening and commenting!
  5:01pm Robert:

Presumably Ken's chair will be tethered and allowed to rise only a short distance, and he'll be well strapped in.
  5:03pm Robert:

I didn't even like it when he was tattooed for pledges. I'm sentimental about you guys, and especially things that might do permanent changes to your bodies, like your cancer.
  5:07pm JohnEBGood:

The Flamingo had the World's Greatest Disco Fries in the 70's!!
  5:09pm Speedwagon:

On bass, is this the same Jem Cohen who photographs Fugazi?
  5:11pm Madi Horstman:

Greetings band is sounding great! Some food places aren't about the food, they're history and a whole way of eating and the original foodstuffs. I will see the Parting Gifts first chance I get. THANKS TERRE
  5:11pm snake:

This updating playlist is very impressive.
  5:29pm frenchee:

Flaming-o is good on ambiance, also drinks, but TT is RIGHT about eating there.
  5:29pm frenchee:

LOVE the organ! Dave Amels is the man
  5:34pm Terre T:

@Spoony-Also I'm glad u let that guy decide 4U on yr FCBK
@TurtleBoy-do i know u?
@Snake- Also what band ru in? & thx 4 for the props on the Accuplaylist. That's Assoc Prods Paulie B ( & Liz French earlier) working on it! IOt's takes alot of (unpaid) volunteers here to get everything ready for this show--engineers, helpers, associate producers etc!
@Robert- Thank u for that nice sincere comment!
@JohnEBGood-Guess u had 2be there!
@Speedwagon-Wow not sure!
@Madi-THANX! Say where ru listening from?
  5:37pm snake:

Terre I play in a band from Vancouver called Battle Snakes. It's whatever! We played a show with the sheaths at the amazing Calgary Sled Island festival last summer. Also, this is the first time I've managed to catch your show after hearing about it for so long on the best show. I don't think i'll ever miss it again! All the hard work is worth it! It's not an easy task to give the internet a tangible feeling like that!
  5:47pm Ron:

Terre T is bringing it AGAIN. What an amazing show. The Parting Gifts were so so so so great!!
  5:48pm JohnEBGood:

The live sound was great on the Web. Thanks to all. A few years ago I'd be on my way to Baltimore from AC! Keep Rockin!
  5:55pm Madi Horstman:

NYC Baybeh!
