whoa!! I made it onto the Michael Shelley intro!! That's the best Bday present I never would have thought to ask for!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17am Ken From Hyde Park:

WFMU will provide presents all day long. Just keep listening.

Mike Shelley is the gift that keeps on giving!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19am G:

Wow, you guys are nearly at 104% of goal...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19am Mike East:

you got that right, Ken. That and a hot cup o coffee is about all I got keeping me goin today. I don't want to be at work. wah!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20am G:

I'm gonna be doing laundry while working online. How utterly thrilling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27am Greg from Bloomfield:

I will be spending the show pushing the limits of acceptable pajama wearing time...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29am Mike East:

I am green with envy, Greg. I think last Saturday I made it to almost 4pm in my PJ's
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36am Mike East:

I was singing "I'll come running over" in the shower the other day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39am G:

There was actually a ramp-up on the laundry. I'm dogsitting for a friend who lives in an apartment building, and I had to figure out how the debit card system works. Even more thrills. I practically have a blog entry, let alone a tweet, at this point. If I did those things...

I haven't owned pajamas for about 25 years. What's wrong with me. Stinking nonconformist. Shorts suffice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39am Mike East:

anyone read that article in the NY'er about Dapper Dan? I found it fascinating. Made a great analogy between him making his own fashion creations using name brands (Gucci, Louis Vuitton, etc) and hip hop artists sampling music.
  11:43am Parq:

I put on the pajamas after I get up. Got a 22 year old daughter in the house. And Michael, thanks so much for that brilliant Star Wars Inside Job vid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43am Mike East:

I just count pajamas as the comfortable clothes that I would never wear outside my house. I don't typically even sleep in them...just have them for the time before and after sleeping.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44am Parq:

Dang, I forgot to sign in. There, that's better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45am Mike East:

that's funny, Parq. I remember my dad coming out to yell at my teenaged sister and her friends to keep it down in his tightie whities. My sister was mortified. I thought it was hilarious.
Avatar 11:47am Phelger Nank:

Cage Match:

Crickets & Beatles, or
Wasp & King Bees, or
Spiders from Mars & Pink Spiders ??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48am Greg from Bloomfield:

To be fair, half of my "pajamas" is a WFMU "Dead Air" shirt.
Avatar 11:52am DeemerDave:

Yoshimi & Pink Robots?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53am SeanG:

Avatar 11:54am Phelger Nank:

There was a Japanese 'group sounds' band called Pink Spiders in the 60s, in addition to the current US garage band, so I presume the Flaming Lips were writing a rock opera about 1960s Japanese beat bands
Avatar 11:55am DeemerDave:

Thanks, Phelger.
Avatar 11:58am Juke Joint Jonny:

I like the lilac/magenta/white livery this morning. Spring-like and reminiscent of Easter eggs,
  11:59am Dave in Woodbridge:

Phelger: agreed
Avatar 12:05pm Phelger Nank:

@Dave: Word
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm Parq:

Coincidentally, Pheiger, they remind me of pajamas.
  12:08pm David in ATL from NJ:

Thanks for landing Johnny next week, Michael! That's a treat for sure.
Avatar 12:09pm Dr. Goot:

haha Moonie! Thx Michael!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:12pm jmd:

Thanks for the devil/Brian Wilson link. Whatta doozy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm Mike East:

oh man, the combination of the show today and that Lukes Change link are making me so happy.
  12:16pm Dave in Woodbridge:

Evvo at his alterna-hunkiest
Avatar 12:17pm Phelger Nank:

#1 Hit! Dando is sorely underrated.
Avatar 12:21pm DeemerDave:

I agree Dave in Woodbridge
Avatar 12:23pm DeemerDave:

I always enjoy Cotton Eye Joe at sporting events.
Avatar 12:24pm DeemerDave:

My kids just roll their eyes.

This is a serious Comments Board for serious music fans, not some Tiger Beat fanboy outpost. Please keep comments on-message.

He is pretty hot, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm Mike East:

funny, deemerdave. exact opposite for me.
Avatar 12:27pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Red Nichols is a great choice after the West Street Mob. Now I can continue to do the Robot
  12:37pm Gordon in Chappy:

Once again Michael you have made working on a Saturday not such a bad thing. Thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Mike East:

my sentiments exactly, Gordon
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm Ken From Hyde Park:

In high school, we scammed a trip to California and I saw Lefty Frizzell's star on the Hollywood walk of fame. I had never heard of him, but I thought it was a great name and took a picture of it.
  12:42pm drr:

So nice, you played it twice?
  12:44pm Lawrence:

Was great hearing it 2x - thank you!
  12:44pm drr:

Whoa, who was the jerks comment aimed at?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm G:

@drr: He forgot the asterisk the first time, that's all
  12:47pm Gordon in Chappy:

Darn, what did I miss?
  12:52pm drr:

I'm not sure either.
  12:53pm drr:

I'll assume it was just a coincidence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm G:

The Shoes offered an extremely polished performance
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00pm Mike East:

ever get the feeling you've been cheated? good night!
  11:45am Peter:

Mr. Shelley, that Tony Joe White song was included on a 1997 reissue of TJW's first album, but it is unclear on the net just when it was recorded. However (Wiki) the first album was recorded nine months before July 1969, which means fall 1968.

That means the Monkee's/Day Tripper-ish guitar riff was derived, and might be the world's first example of a neo-Monkees (Wrecking Crew) cultural event.
  8:16pm Josh:

Sorry to just be catching up, MS, but if you want to explain Fountains of Wayne to someone just play them "Fountains of Wayne Hotline."
