This episode has me SO STOKED for the Festive 50 episodes.

Hey Contrast Podcast Nation (with your lady bits… and your man bits too), this was probably my favorite one so far even though I missed JC. I especially loved Royal Bangs, Cure, & Be Your Own Pet. When the podcast was over I had to go right back and play the beginning again because it was so funny.

It is a good one isn’t it.


I just wanted to say an official welcome to Miss Wired who I know has been a long time listener and supporter of the podcast.

Natalie – I’m sure I’m speaking for everyone when I say that our thoughts are with you regarding your dad. Your intro and song choice put a big lump in my throat when I heard it first, and I know that I’ll always think of you and your dad when I hear The Weepies from now on.

Nat- I absolutely am with Tim in expressing my deepest condolences. I know he would have been very pleased with the beautiful song you played for him this week.

Oh, Nat, I’m so sorry about your dad. May your memories keep you smiling for him. And thanks for that song; I really like it and I’m going to look up more Weepies.


My heartfelt thanks to you Tim, James, and Linda (and all of you.) It’s tough to think of my dad as “gone,” but that old coyote lives on in my heart, and the music helps keep him alive in me. Now, where’s that Johnny Cash record?

I’m lovin’ this episode, especially all of the music I’ve missed out on this year so far. I’m hearting the Stars cut and Those Modern Socks and Kaisercartel. New stuff for me to check out!

big welcome to miss wired–i like how you’re thinking outside the box already!

i really liked the kaisercartel and that weepies song. and yay for tim picking flight of the conchords–they might be the best thing so far of the decade!

I forgot to welcome Miss Wired, too. Another one deaf to lyrics?! (Same as my husband.)

I will never be deaf to the lyrics, but sometimes I wish I were.

Can’t say I agree with all the choices (guess that’s what the contrast is for), but what a great podcast. If you want to hear the songs I didn’t pick click… here.

Sorry I missed out on this one.

Shameless plug time….if you want to find out what I would have contributed, pay a visit to http://www.thevinylvillain.blogspot.com

And Nat….I’m with the others who have already passed on their condolences. What you said brought a tear to my eye.

Thanks, JC.
