Hello fellow spazz listeners
Avatar 9:00pm Marcel M:

Hey Dave!!! Hope you are doing okay!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm mrdonutsu:

Hey Scott, I tried to contact both Ken and Michele about software that might help your efforts. Guessing they're too swamped to reply. Should I shoot an email instead?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm mrdonutsu:

And howdy Dave!!!!

Thanks to Scott Williams for his tireless diligence and wiping down efforts. We'd be lost without the WFMU Skeleton Crew.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:02pm Chop Scott:

Escott! Thanks again for holding down the fort so Spazz can deliver the bananas! Cheers Brother!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Parq:

Hello, Scott, Spazz and all those who truly believe.
  9:03pm P-90:

Thanks for the wipe job, Scott W
  9:04pm Dave Miss:

Scott Williams is the best! Dave n Lolo hope you’re over the monkey pox

hey Dave, heard your mic check yesterday- pulling for ya here in East Hollywood CA
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:04pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I'm picturing a room full of chimpanzees looking at each other and each one has a look on its face of "Where's Dave?"
  9:04pm John from Florham park:

@Dave is this live or an archive?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05pm Uncle Michael:

Is Bingo heating up chicken soup for you, Dave?
Avatar 9:06pm Dave the Spazz:

It's a reheated archive from 2010 meticulously selected just for you!
  9:07pm P-90:

Perfect choice for a revisit. I’ve actually recommended this show on the archive a number of times to friends over the years, when Tommy James comes up in conversation.
  9:07pm John from Florham park:

@Gotcha spazz man
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm Chop Scott:

Hope it's a speedy recovery Dave--take care!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08pm Scott Williams:

Happy to wipe it all down for you here, Dave! Glad you're here on the board. Godspeed to recovery!
Avatar 9:10pm Dave the Spazz:

Thanks for the well wishes, everyone--we'll all get through this mess in one piece. Unwrap each day like a brand new can of Silly String!

Unwrap each day like the old school cans of Spam!

Only virus I have (so far) is the Spazz-20 virus. Hope all's well, Dave, thanks for the show and for hanging out.
Avatar 9:15pm Dave the Spazz:

Happy to be here. At this point, I'm happy to be anywhere!

Avatar 9:19pm Hackensack Slim:

Thanks for being here Dave. I've been pushing "Car 54" to wash hands by. Results Mixed.
  9:19pm Pedro in Arlington:

Using the show as a soundtrack to the Ken Burns' doc on the Roosevelts airing in PBS. Teddy grooves like a monkey.
Avatar 9:21pm Dave the Spazz:

@Pedro That's exactly what I had in mind back in 2010
  9:22pm garrito-:

el matematico!!!! yikes!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Mark Hurst:

Just joined in! Hi Dave, hi all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm Uncle Michael:

I wanted to hear a show from 2030 where you warn us maniacs not to blow it up.
Avatar 9:25pm Dave the Spazz:

Hi Mark!
  9:25pm Lolo in Brooklyn:

Feel better soon, Dave! Thank you for having a show tonight and letting us feel normal again for a moment! Ooo oooo ooo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Uncle Michael:

Mark, I was using your show today for sound checking Skype calls.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27pm Mark Hurst:

I've heard that's the primary use of Techtonic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Mark Hurst:

Still, glad to hear it :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Uncle Michael:

I was glad to hear it!
  9:29pm allanToronto:

Chimps are kind of like little men in black.
  9:43pm Dave Miss:

Mark Hurst here to get Spazz’ monkeys off monkeybook. Howdy Mark!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm Mark Hurst:

Hi Dave Miss!
  9:46pm P-90:

OK, for the last time: chimps aren’t on Monkeybook, they’re on Apebook. Dammit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm Ken From Hyde Park:

He's talking Record Fair ... hit the dump button, Scott!
  9:49pm BH:

EDITOR'S NOTE: Nothing is actually going on this weekend
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm Scott Williams:

@HP Ken, it was nice to pretend for a minute, wasn't it??
  9:50pm Carmichael:

Heya Dave and fellow spazzes.
Avatar 9:50pm Dave the Spazz:

Yeah, ignore the out-of-date ramblings of this ancient DJ
  9:51pm allanToronto:

I kinda miss that old peeler bar kind of tassle-twirling drum style
  9:53pm allanToronto:

Looking fwd to this interview rebroadcast
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm Tommy in Neversink:

Sorry you couldn't be in the studio but IT'S ONLY A RADIO SHOW FOR CRYING OUT LOUD
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I take comfort in the belief it'll be back next year, stronger, more successful than ever. Here's some footage from 2010: youtu.be...
  9:55pm Carmichael:

When anyone says “sock it to me”, don’t.
Avatar 9:56pm Dave the Spazz:

  10:00pm Lolo in Brooklyn:

The monkeys were just babies back then!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm Uncle Michael:

Anyone know whatever happened with the Val Kilmer film adaptation of the book?
  10:05pm Carmichael:

I saw Tommy James a few years ago. He played everything you’d expect him to and more.
Avatar 10:05pm Mike & Dusty:

total King Uszniewicz vibes
Avatar 10:08pm Dave the Spazz:

@Mike & Dusty I was thinking South Bay Surfers, but yeah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Uncle Michael:

The way the guitar swings on this record makes it.
  10:09pm Carmichael:

His great line, after Crimson and Clover: “We used to do acid, now we do antacid.”
Avatar 10:09pm Dave the Spazz:

I've seen Tommy James a couple of times. Not only does he put on a terrific show, the hit after hit after hit factor is mind blowing.
  10:10pm Carmichael:

Will he explain the origins of this song?
Avatar 10:10pm Dave the Spazz:

@Carmichael Stay tuned!
  10:19pm P-90:

Ahh, the good old days of the music biz
  10:31pm Carmichael:

What a hit machine. I saw him play Sugar on Sunday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm mariano:

Man, heavenly set of songs.
  10:34pm Ojai John:

Saw him recently at the Ventura County Fair. It was better than I expected and quite good. The songs are fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Jeezy:

Not a fan of the mono versions, eh Dave!? :-()
  10:35pm Carmichael:

Oh, I forgot Tighter and Tighter!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Jeezy:

Not that I don't love me some extreme stereo rekkids! But it wasn't until I heard Magical Mystery Tour in mono that I was stunned to hear it actually rocks....
  10:39pm P-90:

“Get ovah heah wit dat rekerd”
Avatar 10:39pm Hackensack Slim:

I miss ? and The M's. Also, this is a Great Interview.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Jeezy:

you gimme dat rekkid Baaack
  10:45pm P-90:

Mony Mony did have a definite “retro” vibe when it hit in 1968, when most pop was headed in every other direction at once.
  11:09pm vertual:

One of my earliest musical memories...hearing all this on dad's new high tech 8 track player in STEREO in around 69-70 when i was 5-6 years old.
Avatar 11:09pm Glorious Estephonic:

i just got into crystal blue persuasion this past week while watching zodiac -- and so happy to be tuning in now -- feel so connected to the collective unconscious - so grateful for this feeling woahness
  11:11pm kym:

Dave, I'm sorry you're under the weather but... hot diggity, am I glad I caught this archive! Incredible interview with Tommy James. Funny how you can love a person's catalogue but forget just how many of their songs give you goosebumps until you hear them all back to back again.
  11:12pm kym:

By the way, anyone else get a Sparks vibe off of 'Mirage'?
  11:20pm P-90:

Spazztastic interview!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm Jeezy:

Yup, @kym.... Sparks must love Tommy!
  11:27pm Elle Tor's Husband:

Is this a Full Credit show Dave? 'cause I swear to god this is like a Music History course right here. I always learn form the University Of FMU. Big thanks to you Monkey Man!
  11:27pm Elle Tor's Husband:

Also "from"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28pm Chop Scott:

KILLER show Dave--fantastic!!
Avatar 11:31pm Dave the Spazz:

Funny thing is that the movie is back on track as of a few weeks ago with Barbara DeFina producing, screenplay by Matthew Stone and Kathleen Marshall directing. Some things are worth the wait!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm Motobro:

Dave, get well soon and thank you
  11:44pm P-90:

I hadn’t heard the movie is back on track. I assume it’ll be better than the Jersey Boys movie...
Avatar 11:53pm Dave the Spazz:

Thanks everybody for tunin' in. Hopefully if I can slap together a home studio within the next few days I'll be back next week with a new episode.
  11:54pm vertual:

Thanks - I needed a feel-good show tonight. This was a great escape
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks for the trip down memory lane, DTS. Hope you feel better soon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm lorenzoelsuave:

Thanks Fortmeister Scott W!

Yeah thanks Scott!
  11:57pm Dave Miss:

Thanks D’spazz! And Scott!
  11:57pm P-90:

And don’t forget to wash all your parts for 20 seconds, Bingo!
