Here we are, performing "Stuck Between Stations" on Letterman.

We were great.

I really like this version, because the keys are down where they belong, and Tad is up where he belongs.

Mit ein hollow-bodied guitar, yet!

Thanks to Hot Rox for reminding me how good this performance is. . . .

She was a damned good dancer but she wasn’t all that great of a girlfriend.

This (and our schtick in general) has always reminded me of something, and it just hit me -- The Pursuit Of Happiness' I'm An Adult Now

I love everything about Tad and hate everything about KB boy.

As you would know if you ever checked out my blog, which you don’t – slacker! – I’ve been cursing you for always, always, being muchos steps ahead of me on every dang thing, but … HA! I posted this particular Letterman vid in sept. 2008! That’s before you did!!!!!

Unfortunately, the great, great line that grabbed me (the devil & john berryman took a walk together & ended up on Washington talking to the river) while truly great, is, I have to admit – aaaaargh!!! – edged out once AGAIN by your ear because -- I HATE to admit this!! -- but, you are, what’s the word, right that nothing-nothing can top “She was a damned good dancer but she wasn’t all that great of a girlfriend.”

P.S. They’re from Brooklyn yeah, but that’s just because they moved there -- they loved the Golden Gophers but they hated the drawn-out winters. They’re a Minneapolis band.

PPS Seeing them on TV felt like what it must have felt like to hear “Mr. Tambourine Man” on the AM radio for the first time back in the day. It’s a head-snapper.

PPPS Say what you will about Letterman, he (or maybe it's Paul Shaffer ladies and gentlemen, Paul Shaffer) have been consistently spotlighting the best music one can find on broadcast TV for a long while now.
