Good afternoon, Todd. Volume is no object, loudest is bestest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm Gaylord Fields:

Todds are gods!
Avatar 3:10pm Joe B:

Sounding great Todd, or Todds
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm Gaylord Fields:

Also, great Nederbeat(les) track to ring in the new year!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Gaylord Fields:

Joe, regarding the great big party at Todd's house, I'll sell you a plate and a cup for half of what he's charging. I'm full of the holiday spirit!
  3:15pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

But Joe, all you actually get is the plate and cup that Gaylord sells you! Nothing to fill it!
  3:16pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Great start TOPT!
Avatar 3:16pm Joe B:

Deal! But I am not buying that line about his phonograph hasnt worked for over a year
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Stevel:

I'll be looking into Status Quo. Killer set, so far. Y'all got the rock.
Avatar 3:16pm Joe B:

Ah the ol' bait and ditch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm Gaylord Fields:

There goes your share of the profits, Sissophonic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Gaylord Fields:

You'll be hearing from efd's lawyer any moment, Todd.

Billy Squire!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Uncle Michael:

One of the guys in Piper is local to me and played with a lot of my friends around here.
Avatar 3:31pm Hoboken Jack:

Maybe some Klaus Nomi in honor of the imminent closing of HELMER'S? Where have you gone, 11th & Washington, a Mile Square City turns its lonely eyes to you!
Avatar 3:34pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Or at least The Rattles!
  3:38pm johnk77:

Nick Ashford
was a great guy!
  3:52pm efd's lawyer:

I usually ask for more, but I'd settle for a full plate and a full glass for a bribe this time. But if I'm not invited, I'll see you in court, and it will cost either of you a lot more
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Gaylord Fields:

efd's lawyer: As co-defendant in this matter, I'll offer you as a settlement either a cupful of food or a plateful of drink.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm ChrisB.:

Were the Pipettes Piper's back up singers?
  4:02pm efd's lawyer:

I'll take the plateful of drink. Now these origami classes are going to pay off!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm Gaylord Fields:

@ChrisB: Yes, the Pipettes were, but they left because of a lack of chemistry.
  4:03pm Listener Jumpy:

"Jonathan & Josh will be spinning all night. They're also be playing records." !
  4:04pm Mark in Toronto:

this McCoy's song just kills. produced by F/G/G?
Avatar 4:05pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Of course! Also recorded by The Birds (Ron Wood variety) as final 45 under Birds Birds. But honestly McCoys version is better. And I love The Birds!
  4:07pm dennis diken:

Todd, fabulous show!!
Avatar 4:08pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Thanks pal!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm fred:

That was me pretending to be efd's lawyer. Don't worry, I'm not going to show up at your party, I'm an ocean away
Avatar 4:22pm Michael Shelley:

All hail the wisdom of Todd!
  4:37pm ScottC:

Take it from a SF native... Nob Hill is an area where all the Gold Rush Barons built mansions- Huntington, Stanford etc... Well, Nob Hill is a straight shot east of the late great jazz/blues club district that was the Fillmore. Makes sense that Nob Hill Suits would be popular at that time...
Avatar 4:41pm Joe B:

Great job Todd!
  4:46pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Steller show, Toddy!
Avatar 4:46pm Monica:

excellence in broadcasting, todd!
  4:53pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Thanks TOPT!!!!
Avatar 4:54pm Joe B:

Everybody Buscareno!
Avatar 4:54pm JakeGould:

This is a good show today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm Gaylord Fields:

Todd, let me pile onto the kudos: This show has been so good I've been watching Flipper on Antenna TV with the sound off!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm SeanG:

Birdman kicks ass
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm Gaylord Fields:

No, Todd, Sissophonic is telling you she's watching her Ben Stiller Show DVD instead of listening.
Avatar 5:00pm BadGuyZero:

I was at the DC stop of YLT's anniversary tour. A phenomenal show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm common:

just talking about the magic christian yesterday and today. one of the best flicks ever and i love this songy!
  5:05pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

You got me, Todd. Boy, that didn't take long. Almost like I gave it to you to make you feel better.
Avatar 5:07pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Me, myself and I were quite pleased!
  5:07pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

@Gaylord, we LIVE to edit each other!
  5:07pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Matt F:

I'd comment on the excellence of this show except that I am still drunk from the Jones/Bambi Kino Xmas party 10 days ago and can't type.
  5:10pm Mark:

Greg Ashley's a little Robyn Hitchcockish (not that that's a bad thing)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm Gaylord Fields:

@Matt F: What made the Jones party great was not only Bambi Kino playing the role of the Hamburg-era Beatles but also Sissophonic playing the role of every German sailor.
  5:17pm Mark:

Anyone who's not in love with Emmylou Harris is an idiot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Matt F:

Agreed. Much Schau was Mached.
  5:18pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

@Gaylord, @Matt, I'm qualified to play that role! But I am also in love with Emmylou.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm Matt F:

My favorite part was when they played "Lend Me Your Comb" as a roomful of people whose hair really was a mess sang along.
Avatar 5:22pm glenn:

zuma really is a great record.
  5:26pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

But I can't edit this show, TOPT, so fantastic.
  5:31pm V Priceless:

Bob 2 Forever!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Gaylord Fields:

The Barry Sisters cut that perfect slice of New York teen pop when they were both in their forties!
  5:33pm dennis diken:

this Barry Sisters record is amazing!
  5:38pm V Priceless:

Johnny Gustafson RIP! Cool trib, TOPT!
  5:49pm Mark:

It's not called "Shootin' Beavers"! What is the name of this song really? You crazy nut, how many times have I told you not to horse around with the playlist?!
  5:51pm DG:

Whoah! Did the people who wrote "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" ever hear this song?Did they take legal action?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Gaylord Fields:

Beverley, take us away (from 2014)!
