The Tower Records building on Sunset still stands, it's supposed to become a showroom for Gibson.
Avatar 11:09am Sem Chumbo:

Ready for sin for the next 2 hours. OK, there are 7 deadly ones. We've already had Avarice, and now, Lust.
Avatar 11:10am Toddophonic:

Hopefully this makes it to a few jookboxes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10am Frank Above:

Hi Mike! Looking forward to a rocking soundtrack while I have a long overdue record cleaning session!
  11:11am David in ATL from NJ:

Killing it, Mike!
  11:13am Stuart Rose:

Witty, Sem, witty.

Great snap of Burnsy. Wonder what platters he picked up.
You're off to fine start, Mike. Always enjoy your shifts on FMU.

Too bad Talk Talk didn't stay in this vein...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14am Mike Sin:

Hey folks!! Thanks for joining me!
  11:14am Matt in Nebraska:

If that's the same Jook that did "Aggravation Place", I've always wanted some more of that.
Avatar 11:16am Toddophonic:

Fastball are underrated. Great guys too.

Why is Margaret Thatcher talking behind God's back?

Hey Sem, I'm going with gluttony on the WFMU airwaves.

You're kicking ass, Mike. I have this shit on LOUD in here and it's getting the housework DONE.

Avatar 11:39am ChrisB.:

Mike: Like Cotton Mather? Find a copy of "Kon-Tiki."
  11:39am IncreaseMather:

Cotton Mather's Kon Tiki is amazing. If you like Hotel Baltimore, you'll love Kon Tiki. Their first, Cotton is King is also very good.
  11:40am Tom from Detroit:

Hi mike woggles in Cleve last night sonics in Detroit tonight listening on the way
  11:40am Bill in W.O.:

Cotton Mather were/are an Austin TX band. You'll love all their records, but go out of your way to find KONTIKI. The first COTTON IS KING is good, KONTIKI is epic, the last THE BIG PICTURE is good but suffers in comparison with KONTIKI.
Avatar 11:42am glenn:

the sonics are playing in toronto tomorrow, good. the venue has the worst sound of any venue in the city, bad.

I like the way the Pete Best Combo rhymed "get her" with "forget her".

A morning full of jangly guitars is a good good morning.
  12:15pm Caroline:

Enjoying your show on the Goethals Bridge!
Avatar 12:17pm David Shortell:

I wonder if the Londoners changed their name to capitalize on the Richard Lester film "The Knack ...and How to Get It".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Gaylord Fields:

Optical Sound = Sin-esthesia!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24pm Uncle Michael:

Do you see it in yer bones, Gaylord?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm Mike Sin:

Thanks for stickin' around here, folks!
  12:30pm David in ATL from NJ:

Long live the Spanish Underground Scene. Great stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm Gaylord Fields:

Mike Sin's music is red — with purple flashes.
  12:33pm Tom from Detroit:

Freaks and flashes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm Frank Above:

Trying being married to an Italian woman. You hear a lot worse than "no"!
