The aforementioned Luke "Diamond" Phillips from Frampton's Watermelon here! Brian and I are really excited to do this broadcast again and hope everybody who can tunes in!! I think I'm most looking forward to really diving into the GD deep cuts here. Vague revelation: I just acquired a certain rare EP featuring a certain Green Day member over the holiday break, and you bet I'm going to play a cut from it.

What I'm most excited about, however, is interacting with all my fellow GD fans! If anyone has any suggestions for content for this broadcast, or any kind of song request, please feel free to let us know in a reply!

Also interesting and of note -- our airdate is a year and a day after the announcement that Lookout! Records shut its doors, so expect some kind of tribute in rememberance. We'll catch you over the airwaves then!

It's also a day before the original release date of ¡Tre!

I wouldn't mind hearing that Sam Cooke song that Brutal Love was 'lifted' from... just to tie in some eclectic Trilogy inspiration! Or maybe another song with that Stray Heart bassline, if we're getting creative and have an "inspirations" section of whatever type. Would be kinda cool!

Lookin' forward to it, the last one(s) were great! Are they available online or to download anywhere? I would LOVE to hear them again or have them as an mp3 somehow!

Thanks for listening. Those shows wouldn't have been what they were without the incredibly awesome listening audience.

I'd love to make the first two shows available online. But I have a feeling several record labels, the RIAA, ASCAP and BMI would prefer I didn't. And all of those groups have lots of lawyers who throw around words like "infringement" and "punitive damages."

Meanwhile I got excited today upon realizing I had two more dollars than I previously thought I did.

It really sucks, but due to station rules and copyright laws, I cannot.

Aww, bummer, but I understand. (Can't these things be available "Streaming"? On soundcloud or something but not for download? I don't really know much about this, and you obviously do, so ignore me.)

It'd be cool to just hear your discussions/commentaries/analysis of the songs and then I can just play them myself or check them out on youtube. But I imagine it would be quite a hassle to cut out the music. =/

Well maybe Alison, which Billie Joe played together with Elvis Costello, would be nice to hear on the radio that day! :)

Cool! I like you guys! It was so much fun to listen to the shows dedicated to GD last time! :D Looking forward to hear you again.

Maybe you could play some live songs, little bits of fun interviews or something (but maybe not the ones on BIAB/AAF) ... I know there are a few really good quality bootlegs around, and I haven't heard them in a while!

Would you mind adding this to the OP so I don't have to search for it on Monday at the last minute when I finally remember that I'm suppose to be listening? :)

Not as big of a hassle as you might think. I'll see what I can do.

I liked the version of "No Action" they did together. I'm a big Costello fan.

*coughAreWeTheWaitingcough* ;)

There are so many versions of that song to choose from. I'll throw one on for you, but I can guarantee you it won't be the album version.

I sure as hell will be listening! :D

My boyfriend and I got to know each other because of Green Day, we both love them so goddamn much! So it would be amazing if you could play a love-themed Green Day song, maybe When It's Time? But it's also awesome if you'd play a song from 39/Smooth, like 1,000 Hours or so. :3
