Thanks for posting the link! I didn't hear all of the show. Did they say why MCA was missing at the beginning of the show?

the theme was whack

10:24 PM Hot Sauce said...

It was good hearing the band on the radio again. A theme is a nice idea, but it shouldn't interfere with choosing good music to play. In the case of today's show, I think the theme did interfere.

My favorite parts were the shout-out to the dogs and Horovitz' chastising Mike for playing an "adult" song on their family radio show.


@Brody: Yauch said he was "editing." He didn't specify what he was editing.

I agree some of the songs were weak, but I still liked the show. They should do a show of all the songs they have sampled.

Thanks a lot!
setlist anyone?

9:29 AM Hot Sauce said...

I didn't post a playlist because I figured the Playlist King, or whatever his name is, would post it to the MB. That didn't happen?

I jotted some notes.

I cleaned up my notes, which I wasn't too serious about taking. Part of the fun (at least for me) of the radio shows in the previous years was identifying the songs on the MB with other fans. But the Playlist King ruined that fun by posting the playlists. It made it unnecessary to even try to identify the songs.

Below is what I noted from the show. I might have missed one song at the beginning. The songs I didn't recognize are indicated with question marks.

hey!
I edited my version of the setlist on the MB.
What if we mixed'em-up?

1:09 PM Hot Sauce said...

That is groovy with me, Top 10.

4:51 PM realifry said...

Im just glad they are back. I think it was great, in every show there are weak songs but overall very good.

6:05 PM Iku Hito said...

I liked the show very much. I do not hear music like they play. I feel ashamed that I do not know any of the songs except MIA.

8:13 PM Eric D said...

It's god to hear them on the radio again.

Thanks for posting the playlist and notes.

Hey all,

I got lost in the blogosphere on this one and found this nice little gem about Mike D inviting Zoe (of Zoe Radio) to open for them in LA this year: http://www.zoeradio.com/?p=38

Zoe's dad, who worked with the Beastie Boys, is here: http://www.fistfulayen.com/blog/ Smart, funny stuff.
