August 21, 2008

Well, I was able to listen in for a whole show for a change and a good one it was! I think with a bit of help I was able to come close to getting them all. Thanks to the Rock's website (if it's right) I didn't miss David's closing instrumental track just before midnight which the website said was 'Splub - Space Debris' - I never could have guessed that one in a million years!! Anyways, here's the list - a couple artists I'm not 100% sure on so they have question marks...

I really appreciate the work you do on this. I listen to Marsden's show religiously and often hear great tunes that I have not heard before or for quite a while. Keep up the great work.

Hi Ralph!

Circle Jurk did the Thrills a Thrill cover.

I think Sistahmar told me how David doen't like how that Madness song is in a commercial.. well neither do I! But it's a great tune. Sadly I missed all but 15 mins of Friday's show.

Oh, and thanks so much for the Spirit of the West link... very thoughtful...

And thanks for keeping this blog running... it's a great resource

Thanks to all for the comments, glad to get the feedback!

Glen - I updated the list for your comment - how were you able to ID that one? I actually got a message from David himself ID'ing that one early this morning as well from an e-mail I sent him during the show about it.

Jason - Glad you found the Spirit of the West link, glad to share :-)

David mentioned the artist in the Marsbartheater chatroom. David and Don Berns then followed that with a challenge to the chatters to identify the lead singer. No one knew but those two and it was later revealed that Billy Newton Davis was the answer.

Someday I have to figure out how to get into the chat - I can never geti it to work when I try!
