Thank you for playing Shoes... one of my absolute favorite bands. Sometimes I really can’t believe how good they are at writing songs...and delivering them....and how oblivious the US is to them.

Ira wrote the liner notes to their ‘Shoes best’ comp... not too shabby!!

Thanks, 801, that counts for a lot coming from you.

I too was going to salute the inclusion of the Shoes (though I'm sure they'd scorn my use of "the").

And your ability to track the most obscure of birthdays (Jason Everman!) never ceases to amaze me.

I *almost* thought you skipped playing Bowie. Had to double check.

I've always dug that Planet P song. It's so groovy and cheesy and earnest in it's cheesiness, but it's also great fun. And it has that cool ascending synth wash that's just a tick above a video game sound effect. I love it.

The "Back of Your Hand" song was apparently so Elvis Costelloesque that people thought it was him under an alias. That makes me laugh.
