Three unstoppable hours of Dave playing face-melting hot rock jams, talking with extremely important guests, answering the telephone, and trying to figure out what all those knobs and buttons are for. A sincere effort to get the original members of Dokken back on speaking terms will also be made whenever possible.

Angel Witch singing "YOU'RE an angel witch" is the definition of a pot calling a kettle black.

@Caryn: These naps in my case lasted 3-4 hours. Effectively ruining any chance of normal sleep. It happens to me every now and then when work hits a certain level, but not as bad as it used to.

Yes!!! TERRIBLE: trashing beautiful Letterman set and chucking it in dumpsters! Heartbreaking!
Avatar 9:51pm JakeGould:

For the record, it is not a modern thing when sets get trashed like that. Tons of classic NYC TV stuff was just trashed without much regard for history for decades.
Avatar 9:51pm Danne D:

I know that on Pat Byrne's live Prove it all Night show one of Pat's writer showed off a couple of things he rescued from that dumpster. And indeed a terrible fate for it. Pretty much iconic stuff treated terribly.

Dave would have dropped the whole place off the roof if he could have.

  10:06pm Rickwaukee:

oh, Dave was told, I'd bet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm Ike:

@Jake, oh yeah, Circus is too. I like 3 Guys also. But it just seems weird for a *street cart fruit guy* to be 24/7. Cool, but weird.

Avatar 10:10pm JakeGould:

@Ike: Too small an apartment and allergies. No cat for me. But the irony is the mouse disappeared after I got the traps. It was too small for a normal trap so it just ate the cheese off of it and it never triggered. That pissed me off so i got dressed up to find another kind of trap. Don’t make me say it or else people will hate me.

Yeah, you can't get REAL imported Cadbury here anymore, just the lame version licensed and produced by the lousy scumbags at Hershey.
Avatar 10:25pm JakeGould:

“Chocolate giant Hershey Inc has successfully blocked the import of many British sweets because, it says, it creates "brand confusion" with Hershey's products.” www.bbc.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm Caryn:

@Ike: doesn't an American company own Cadbury now anyway? Recently bought a special-edition, airport-only Cadbury's chocolate bar with jelly beans and pop rocks in it. Very good.
Avatar 10:27pm Danne D:

Due to legal action by the so called chocolate maker Hershey's, we can no longer import the real Cadbury chocolate from England
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm fleep:

Chocolate smuggling is the future. Problem: bars strapped to body get really soft.
Avatar 10:27pm Danne D:

You gotta be a serious dumbass to confuse Cadbury with Hershey's
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm Ike:

Because Hershey bought the rights to produce their own version of some Cadbury products for the American market many years ago. They mostly LOOK the same too -- you have to check the back of the Fruit & Nut bar (etc.) to see the hidden evil Hershey byline.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Monstrositor:

Who knew Jimmy was such an authority on early Letterman?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Caryn:

Let's face it, I suspect there are no interviews with a sober Oliver Reed.

Also, it's interesting how all the weirdo/mental breakdown interviews tended to be on Letterman. Crispin Glover, Farrah Fawcett, Oliver Reed, Madonna, Drew Barrymore, etc. etc.
Avatar 10:33pm Danne D:

I bet Jimmy watched the Mid-Morning show like me :)

I'm not surprised that Jimmy is such an authority.

@Caryn@10:26, yeah, Kraft/Mondelez, but I haven't heard any credible report of a decline in quality in the Fruit & Nut or Dairy Milk, etc., though they HAVE done some bad things: www.telegraph.co.uk...
Kraft is evil, but NOT AS EVIL as Hershey. I wish they'd buy back the rights to Cadbury in the U.S. and TAKE HERSHEY DOWN.

The only thing better in Mono is WFAN
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01pm Īke:

@Danne, you've hit on something there -- is the preference for mono all about nostalgia for how those songs sounded on AM radio?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01pm Monstrositor:

A lot of Beatles stereo mixes were just sloppy. Hearing all the rhythm tracks on one side with vocals and lead instruments haphazardly slapped across the other side and some stuff in the center bugs me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm Monstrositor:

Plus, George Martin was deaf in one ear
Avatar 11:04pm JakeGould:

FWIW, the rereleased some Sinatra tracks on “Nothing but the Best” the stereo is artificial and sounds weird. Especially if you then play those stereo tracks in mono like via an iPhone speaker.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06pm steve:

music from the 60s was largely mixed mastered etc for transistor radios and the actual inexpensive home listening setups in most homes in the 60s... so if you want to be nostalgic and/or hear things the way they were intended to be heard just getting a mono record won't cut it. you need a sound system or playback device from the period.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm Monstrositor:

@jake During the early days of stereo, some record companies, including Capitol, would create "duophonic" mixes by splitting the mono signal, boosting the bass in one channel and boosting the treble in the other
Avatar 11:08pm JakeGould:

@Monstrositor: This Sinatra “Nothing but the Best” is from 2008.
  11:13pm Adam F:

You guys do a good job at this station. Dave Hill is so funny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm Monstrositor:

@jake Then it could just be misguided attempts to remix or even just overprocess the old recordings to try to give the old recordings an updated sound. The Genesis box sets from around that same time suffered from some of that

Asian carp are not like regular carp. They're mega-invasive monster fish or something. When Asia sends its fish, they’re not sending their best. They're sending fish that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with them. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good fish.
