Hey Michael, I saw you quoted in the New Yorker. Awesome!

can't wait, this was a great documentary
Avatar 11:25am Brian in UK:

@Mike East ref:Kes apologies it will not spoil the film as with all Ken Loach movies it is gritty and down to earth showing life of working class folk.
Bugger, missed the Love track.
Avatar 11:26am Snortley:

"...as the WFMU d.j. Michael Shelley says of Shattuck's songwriting, “Her Brian Wilson-meets-the Ramones approach is such a bull's-eye, why mess with a good thing?"

@Brian in UK, thanks, I'll checkitout.

Was it Noah Beery in Circus Boy with Mickey Braddock? Seemed to remember it over here on Saturday evenings.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33am Parq:

FMU Record Fair regular Spike Priggen posted that comparison page of music venues and their current iterations. I was struck by how many of them were in what is now my neighborhood, where I moved in 1989. Sigh -- I'm in the right place at the wrong time.
  11:33am MK:

Go see 20 FEET FROM STARDOM, Michael. You'll really like it.
Avatar 11:34am DeemerDave:

Train in Vain sounds great mixed in with all of the #1 hits!
  11:34am JEV from the 'mont:

Michael! Those celeb "makeunders" on your links page are totally worth forwarding. Madonna is killer.
  11:36am Peter:

1) Would never have heard of Muffs without your show - thank you.
2) Saying "Ted Nugent embarrassing himself" is redundant.
3) Seeing "Frances Ha" this afternoon - will let you know. Also, new Woody Allen is supposed to be good.
4) Re Hoboken - yes - have thought same thing. There was a good Chinese food place - excellent General Tso's, but it's gone now, too. So no reason as far as I know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37am Mike East:

If I were going to a movie tonight, it'd either be what MK said, or Fruitvale Station...or possibly Wolverine if I was feeling Marvelous. If I was going with my wife, it'd be I'm So Excited (the new Almodovar film)
Avatar 11:37am Michael Shelley:

JEV - agree - kind of scary - The MONT rules
Avatar 11:37am pgw in mntclr:

i'm getting laid-off from my job in hoboken, so with that and maxwell's ending their run, i'm not sure if/when i'll be visiting.
  11:38am Claudia:

Hey Mike - go see Twenty Feet From Stardom-The Untold Story of Backup Singers, it's excellent. Hopefully, it's playing around your neck of the woods. Also, caught New Order's show in Williamsburg Park this week, they were fucking brilliant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38am Mike East:

@Peter - Right! I wanted to see both of those, too! Alas, I'll wait for dvd's.
  11:43am Peter:

Can you ask Drew what extras will be on DVD/Blu-Ray? I know they shot interviews with a lot of bands/musicians that couldn't fit in the final cut.
  11:45am Peter:

As for the celeb stuff, I've seen Gwyenth Paltrow, Jennifer Connelly, and Anne Hathaway up close and in real life - they are stunning - and would be noticed no matter if on camera or not.
  11:46am Craig Evans/The Taters:

Great show! First time listening! Just subscribed to the podcast, since I've got to leave the computer (huh?!?).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56am eyenoise:

The Panther Burns clip is worth the price of admission to the film. And the Like Flies On Sherbert studio clip was a highlight for me and I wanted so much to see more of that.
  11:59am Peter:

The film resonates because the band story itself matches their music..beautiful and doomed.
  11:59am Peter:

@eyenoise - I agree about Panther Burns bit.
  12:01pm lloyd michigan:

Have to admit the big announcement from Nick Lowe was kinda disappointing.

I just read JJ Cale has died. Dang!
  12:05pm JohnEBGood:

Sonny and Cher!
Avatar 12:07pm DeemerDave:

Re Boo Boo & Binky: It takes both talent and nerve to rip off Sonny & Cher and Bob Dylan in one song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm Mike East:

well sonny and cher were just ripping off dylan in theirs, too.
  12:09pm JohnEBGood:

Did you get to hear The Stones when they rocked the East Coast in June?
Avatar 12:09pm DeemerDave:

Mike E.: You know you're right! I just never realized.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10pm Mike East:

i worded that weird
  12:11pm JohnEBGood:

Add in Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground. But hey, it was a number 1.
  12:11pm Peter:

Michael - you meant a HIGH ratio, but yes, agreed. Songs like that would be a good theme for a show or fundraiser CD.
Avatar 12:11pm pgw in mntclr:

yeah, that chorus melody is really good
  12:17pm lloyd michigan:

Sad to hear about JJ.
Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Year-End Fundraiser 2020 Swag For Life Member 12:22pm jmd:

Did he just sing 'and how many corns you got down on your feet'?
  12:25pm JEV from the 'mont:

Whatever happened to that band Green for Chitown?

I interviewed the singer - very interesting:

always loved Chilton's cover of MJ's "Rock with You".
  12:50pm lloyd michigan:

Come by Here sounds like it could be an old McCartney track
  12:50pm uncle flowed:

Nobody, but nobody in the 1960s in New York City gave a you know what about the Beach boys… We couldn't have cared less about those freaks from California. What did they have to do with us? Their culture if you want to call it that, was so far and away different from what we were experiencing in New York City that to identify with surfboards, Woody's, and bikinis would've been bizarre. We were British invasion fans. We were American music fans. But that did not include freaks from California. To turn them into these idols at this point in music history is to place them in the position that they never ever deserved. You want to great California band? Let's talk about the turtles. That was a great band. The Beach boys can go to hell.
Avatar 12:54pm CTEmpress:

Girls in their Summer Clothes: classic. And PS: I am from the berach and hate the Beach Boys. Who cares about the creeps that beat you up in school? Blech...
Avatar 12:54pm pgw in mntclr:

never heard this Bruce song. really cool. sounds like he's showing the Magnetic Fields how it's done.
Avatar 12:56pm pgw in mntclr:

i read Scott's mind
  12:57pm mike tp:

just the other day got turned onto BRUCE--LUCKY TOWN CD the tune BACKSTREETS has BRUCE singing like a tank
  1:05pm Queens L. Bow:

Hi Michael, thanks for playing that great Springsteen track (could be a #1). You mentioned Sonny Curtis, and I wonder if you know what's up w/The Crickets. They were supposed to play a "farewell" show at that Lincoln Center out of doors fest in a few weeks (w/Nick Lowe) & now they're not listed. Can't find out what happened, or if they're doing a show anywhere else. Anyone know?
  11:39pm drr:

Listening to this a few days after broadcast, so this comment will probably be lost, but the comment about songs where the chorus blows up the verse of the song (referring to "Hurting Each Other") I thought was a perfect description of "Here Comes The Night" by Them. I was sure that was what was going to be played.
