Super excited about today's show! TOPT, thanks for introducing me to so much great music this year, as always. Pre-hello to Charlie!

Damnit, POST-hello Charlie!!

Starcrawler...one of the many bands to be heard today who appeared on the show this year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm charbird:

Special shoutout to Hoboken Jack, recovering from surgery at home! Get better soon, cause I'm coming out to Jersey in Feb to rock with you, TOPT, and Joe B! (Hope I put in enough commas in this comment!
Avatar 3:14pm Hoboken Jack:

Thanks Charlie, and I won't even mention that missing close-parenthesis!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm charbird:

Hoboken Jack: You're too sharp for me! Ha!! Great start to show, Todd!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm medson:

This Dirty Fences record really sounds great. Def a favorite
  3:21pm Stevel:

Hoboken Jack: Really enjoyed your sets on Three Chord Monte, Christmas Day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Yes, the new music was one of the things to celebrate in 2017. Helps neutralize all the bad and stupid stuff that's happened since January 20.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm medson:

what Ken from HP said
  3:32pm Woo:

The new and the new old music. Dion.
  3:40pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Great show TOPT
Avatar 3:42pm northguineahills:

When you said we were going to get our swag at the year, you weren't kidding, I just got mine, the last USPS day of the year!
Avatar 3:45pm Hoboken Jack:

Stevel, THANK YOU, hugely appreciated!! That was so much fun for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm Aaron Working In Newark:

Good afternoon...GREAT SONG!!!!
  3:47pm KP:

Noel is the greatest Gallagher, except for Liam
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Aaron Working In Newark:

Never heard that before... it rocked..was surprised to see it was him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm medson:

@Aaron me either. I missed that whole album this year
Avatar 3:53pm glenn:

naw. rory is the greatest gallagher by far.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm Aaron Working In Newark:

Is that the one that smashes watermelons?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm Aaron Working In Newark:

how are you doing Meds?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm medson:

Doing good, glad to be off work today.
Avatar 3:58pm DonJuanTijuana:

TOPT you are the King of Saturday, but Nate the Ks top lists for the year Rule!
  3:58pm Woo:

Was Willie Loco Alexander in the Velvet Underground for a few minutes towards the end? I could look it up but that's too much work.
Avatar 3:58pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@DonJuanTijuana: of course they do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm Aaron Working In Newark:

Working all weekend Meds... but doing good.. got great tunes to listen to.
Avatar 4:01pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Woo: you are correct about Willie. Alongside such notables as Ian Paice from Deep Purple and Rob Norris later from The Bongos. Luna also does a Doug Yule song from "Squeeze" on the album btw.
  4:04pm Tomophobic Tom from Detroit:

Quit playing so many cool songs dammit I gotta get out of the car
Avatar 4:05pm northguineahills:

@Tomophobic Tom: I had the opposite problem earlier w/ Todd, I had to get into the car!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm medson:

Peter Perrett was a great interview
Avatar 4:07pm KP:

Now Peter Perrett, like Noel, also from my epic drive to Va.!
  4:10pm Elle Tor's Husband:

I think Mark Eitzel is much better as a music artist than he was as a travel agency ticket delivery runner - which he was in SF - until I came along and replaced him. So you could kind of say I helped him get over the hump. Kinda.
Avatar 4:16pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Elle Tor's Husband: That does not sound like a good line of work for him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm listener 126464:

saw this band twice last year so good
  4:23pm Elle Tor's Husband:

@Todd-o-phonic-Todd Yea. Especially since this was 88' and the Internet travel booking revolution was right around the corner. Nobody ever sheds a tear for the Travel Agent. Come on people!
  4:26pm Bluesman:

That’s quite a guest list! You did good!

Happy New Year TOPT!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm listener 126464:

Thanks Todd
  4:26pm George in WO:

Impressive guest list, Sir! Happy New Year to all!
Avatar 4:27pm Hoboken Jack:

What a Cavalcade of Stars in 2017! Including the Hoboken Jack seal of approval receiving Shivas!
Avatar 4:28pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Thanks everyone!!!
  4:28pm V Priceless:

If only Overend Watts was still around : (
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Stevel:

Why have I not seen Ron Gallo yet (or Ty Segall, for that matter)?Perhaps I'm dead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm Aaron Working In Newark:

this dude sort of sounds like Steve Wynn I thought it was him till I checed the list
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm medson:

Ya don't realize how much great music is released until one of these year end shows
Avatar 4:34pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@medson: That's what we're here for!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm medson:

Greenway put out lots of good stuff in 2017
Avatar 4:41pm Santos_L_Halper:

see ya in 2018, ToPT. thanks for all the musical memories of 2017!
Avatar 4:46pm glenn:

or 2000 light years from home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Zats, my dear mother called and I missed Blondie. Ah, well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm Aaron Working In Newark:

Right on this show is outstanding.. man so much great music I have not heard.. its almost a crime
Avatar 4:52pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Aaron Working In Newark: It is actually a crime. You are under house arrest.
  4:53pm Thank you:

Thanks for some sweet Saturday afternoon jams!
  4:53pm pinto bean:

Maybe a full length low doses release in 2018? They r great
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm medson:

Telephone Lovers has been on my turntable non stop this year
  5:01pm Joe:

‘Ello Folks
  5:03pm pinto bean:

Also thx TOPT for the great 2017 Saturday shows. There were even some saturdays when I wasn’t drinking that I recall as 3 in a row power hours. Pants on or off, cheers to ya and more POW POW POW in 2018!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08pm charbird:

TOPT: As President of the Screaming Females Fan Club, I was hoping to hear Black Moon from the Screaming Females! Though the album isn't officially released till Feb 2018 at Monty Hall, the single was released in 2017. So what say you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Gaylord Fields:

Todd-o-phonic, thanks for placing my favorite Beatles soundalike song of 2017 among the year's best.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm Gaylord Fields:

Yep, between Matt M. and me, the one of us who can grow a moptop was surely shaking it to The Fame-Beats!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm Gaylord Fields:

Also, come see our new group The Beat Buffoons, playing a live lunchtime session at the Cavern Club soon!
  5:19pm Christina Low:

@pinto bean we are trying to record a proper full length this year, hopefully to release in early 2018, as we ultimately are at the turn-around rate of the pressing plants . I'm sure listening to the TOPT show will keep you posted :) If you like our stuff, the 45 sounds GREAT on a home turntable, and- if colored vinyl is your thing- there are still pink ones available at hiddenvolume.com
  5:25pm SeanG:

Avatar 5:30pm acid casualty:

Todd is the HAR-dest working man on show biz!
  5:31pm Bill in W.O.:

Great news, @ChristinaLow. Can't wait for more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33pm medson:

I remember that pick of the week ; )
  5:34pm Victrola Tom:

I bet “Jumpstarting” by Deer Tick would’ve been a top song of 2017 if the record wasn’t so warped!
Avatar 5:35pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Victrola Tom: It was under consideration nonetheless.
  5:37pm Victrola Tom:

No complaints here! Great set just the way it is!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm charbird:

TOPT: Are you playing songs in order of your ranking?
Avatar 5:39pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@charbird: no rankings here!
  5:39pm SeanG:

that Biters track is the toppermost of the poppermost
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm medson:

Will you be playing at least one more Greenway Release? One can hope
  5:41pm Christina Low:

Thanks, @Bill in W.O.!
Avatar 5:41pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@medson: I would have played The Routes in the fourth hour.
  5:42pm pinto bean:

@christina. Looking forward to it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm medson:

Thats ok. I'll play my copy tonight haha
Avatar 5:46pm acid casualty:

This dancer tracks got a great hook!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm charbird:

TOPT: Great show, Todd! After listening to Hoboken Jack's New-to-Me wrap-up on the Aquarium this morning, and now your show, I feel truly Hobokenized! It's a very good feeling indeed! Next week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm medson:

Great way to wrap up 2017.
  6:02pm Bill in W.O.:

Great show, TOPT! Thanks for 2017.
