Hello, partygoers! As we head into the final stretch of the Listening Party, we thought we’d take some time to read and comment on your own comments that have been sent into the show over the last few months.

It goes without saying – but we’re going to say it anyway – that the party wouldn’t have been half as fun without your contributions. Your thoughts, opinions, stories, alternate song choices, and jokes have made this podcast a real joy to do.

Of course, it wouldn’t really be the Listening Party without music, and Dave has stepped up big time to offer us four fun Top 5 categories and some truly great songs. We think you’re really going to enjoy it!

Dept. of Corections:
The word David was looking for was “spindle” – a record sits on a spindle on a turntable.
The original singer for Manfred Mann was Paul Jones, who would also leave the band for a fitful solo career
As usual, when one extemporizes extensively on a podcast, mistakes are bound to creep in, and David made a big boner biweek: it was Humphrey Lyttelton who recorded the Joe Meek-produced “Bad Penny Blues”, which is said to have inspired “Lady Madonna’. The Black Dyke Mills Band recorded a single for Apple – the Paul McCartney composition “Thingumybob”. Anyway – pretty embarrassing.
