Good morning/afternoon, Hookers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02pm Panda Penguin:

Afternoon Hookers. Been a while since I've checked in - I trust you've all been keeping well. That classic Gillard intro sent chills down my spine. CHILLS! Promise I won't leave it so long next time!

Hello, Pseu from where pseudo justice will do
Avatar 12:08pm James Douglas:

@john, good to know that.
  12:09pm John from Florham Park:

@Janes sorry for they typos I hate autocorrect
  12:10pm John from Florham Park:

I mean James
Avatar 12:12pm James Douglas:

autocorrect is not a substitute for proofreading, especially if not liked.

Piroshka seems superb

Ha, Viv Savage. Thanks, Carmichael. Never knew.

Very Ariel. Nice.

I admit I did not know the Califone version of this beautiful song was a cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm GeorgeSimian:

Psychic TV! I had this record when I was a kid. It was recorded with some special microphone. At the end of the record, they put the microphone into a coffin and buried it.

Good health to Mr Chang!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm Panda Penguin:

LOVE this cover, though little will match up to the weirdness of that original video of him doing it at karaoke last year www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm Krys O.:

Hmmm, his voice matches well. I'm impressed.
Avatar 12:39pm Roberto:

I like it!
Avatar 12:40pm James Douglas:

@ Krys O. yeah, seems a little forced tom petty. Wish he had put more of his own take on it.
  12:40pm Websie:

J def sounds like a sleepier Petty.

Buono estente Krys O!

Mmm that's tasty bass!
Avatar 12:55pm Roberto:

Rhymes with "ace," not "ass."

Sounds fishy

Fe-fe-fe-fe-fe-fe-fe, Nulsh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm Phillippe Bastille:

Love the song, disappointed that my invitation to the wedding must have got lost in the mail. Thanks, Scott and Charlene.
  1:02pm Mike Sin:

As usual, hearing so much great new (to me) music. Hi Pseu!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12pm Hughie Considine:

I guess he was lying when he said William it was really nothing.

I love this song!
Avatar 1:12pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

Oh wow, Morrissey never ceases to surprise me.

Morrissey?! Really? I like him and all, but , uh ...
  1:13pm KP in DC:

They’re playing my song
  1:13pm Whattawino:

The Ocean Blue has a tinge of Julian Cope swimming through it, if you ask me.
Avatar 1:13pm Roberto:

I love it. Pseudo-'70s piano riffs are my weakness.
  1:15pm babe:

umm - i can't believe i actually like this Wedding Bell Blues cover...

Cyndi + Tegan and Sara? Damn.

HAHA! Australia = Big Florida
Avatar 1:26pm WmKMoss:

I would like to think that Australia is a BIG Florida. Never been there either. But Hey Seuss probably was.
  1:26pm fletchernyc:

Perfect! #bigflorida
  1:27pm sue:

Hey Sue and fellow hookers, perfect spring day listening on my lunch hour in my car
Avatar 1:29pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

is it "Don't die yet" or "Don't diet"
  1:31pm KP in DC:

Whyte Horses tickled me pink
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Florida With Deserts would also be an acceptable answer.
Avatar 1:33pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

Has anyone seen that Motley Crue movie on Netflix? I haven't yet. It's been on my queue for a while now.
Avatar 1:35pm Pseu Braun:

YES -- cheesy but worth a watch (without kids)
Avatar 1:37pm Roberto:

My personal trainer's mentor is the drummer from Semisonic. Or something like that. It's rather convoluted.
Avatar 1:39pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

Thanks Pseu. (no kids, no problem)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Krys O.:

I heard that watching the Crue doc with German overdubs was fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Phillippe Bastille:

Love the doo-doo-doos!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm enocaster:

The Dirt is a pretty horrible movie by any standard – and I have a soft spot for the Crüe. That being said, it's a great yell-at-the-screen hate watch!
Avatar 1:42pm herb.nyc:

Hi. Nick Lowe done, on wnyc. Now they doing crap. So hello Pseu!
Avatar 1:42pm Roberto:

Yet again, it's entirely too easy to find favorites on the Hook. I hope there's no per-user limit on gold starring.
Avatar 1:44pm Pseu Braun:

Krys - ahahahahaaa
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Phillippe Bastille:

Pseu I have to do some outdoor work. Can you stay an extra hour today so I can listen to hooks as I spread driveway sealer? Thanks!
Avatar 1:51pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

@Roberto - I wondered that as well! Been in a gold star clicking fury on Pseu's show today. I think you can gold star click the whole show, no?

@enocaster - The trailer for The Dirt looked pretty cringey. I'll keep the yelling at the screen option open.
  1:55pm KP in DC:

This is my new favorite song! Yay radio
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Krys O.:

Pseu, I just remembered who made that comment about The Dirt. It was Jonathan Segel of Camper Van Beethoven. :)
  1:57pm nickybones:

Perfect drivin’-around-NJ set, Pseu!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm EG_Astro:

Good afternoon everyone, lovin' today's shows Pseu. Does anyone remember the band Jellyfish?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Krys O.:

Of course, Jellyfish and Beatnik Beach.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm EG_Astro:

Yes @ Krys O! I feel like some Jellyfish songs would fit in well at times today
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Krys O.:

EG_Astro, Pseu has played Jellyfish many times.
Avatar 2:06pm WmKMoss:

Mötley Crüe will never be inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, so they say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm EG_Astro:

That is so exciting! : ) I have missed every time then
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm Granny Spicy Tuna:

howdy, all! i realized i've been listening and lurking for awhile…
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Granny Spicy Tuna:

…and now i must GO. Ha ha! Ciao, babes!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Krys O.:

Yippee, the Third Rail!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Hughie Considine:

What a tune! The news recitation here is so much preferable to Simon & Garfunkel's "Silent Night."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Shirking and twerking is noon - 3PM on the Drummer Stream.
  2:30pm ChrisB.:

Syracuse Summer! Never heard that one! I am familiar with The Flashcubes from that same time and area.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm The Oscar:

That may be in my top ten tracks off Nuggets.

^^^ tomorrow
Avatar 2:34pm leylou:

I was catching up with last week's show yestrday, when... The Corrs' "Only When I Sleep" started playing!! I couldn't believe my ears!
I hadn't heard that song in more than a decade; it was one of the first songs I (can't remember how) I got when I was able to regularly find music outside the state radio, and I never heard it anywhere else.
The teenager inside my head started singing along gleefuly -which was completely surprising during these trying times.
Thank you Pseu! :))
Avatar 2:36pm Pseu Braun:

Hey Leylou! My pleasure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm EG_Astro:

  2:55pm Bic Lighter :

Was thinking Pseu's bed music might fun to replace in a zombie movie/tv show.

Killer set today Pseu. Now I will have to watch The Dirt and give my review next week.
