In the words of Questlove, Todd Rundgren is " an unsung creative maniac excelling in songwriting, production and engineering, with techniques and ideas that were seeded and planted over 50 years ago of which we are still trying to unfurl to this day.

ok. you talked to Jimmy Jam. When can I expect Terry Lewis? And what about Mint Conditon? I really miss my band. Stokely will do, but I'd LOVE to hear from my band. And, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your show :D

I don't know why but she annoys me so much. Always ruining a good joke by trying to piggy back it with something not at all funny.
