Great tribute Malcolm! I was able to listen, but I couldn't call because I was at work. There were so many jams that I don't know where to start. I love "Ready Teddy" by Little Richard. I had forgotten about songs like "Turn to Stone" or "Without the One You Love". Thanks for "Sad Souvenirs" and "I'm in a Different World". You even threw in some Bunker Hill for good measure. Great show!

Thanks Clnmike!

Pjazzy: Thank you! You know my love for the oldies of the 50s and 60s so I don't have to tell you that doing this show was a blast.
