Please join the petition to convince the Potato Chips not to bite it. Their 3" CDR would make a great vinyl, too. Tonight's featured song by Potato Chips--"Can't Weight/I'm Led Zeppelin Tonight/Nervous 4 Life (Hoarse Mix)"--lives up to its name. Their relentlessness and humor is delightfully similar to The Chinese Restaurants.

Death to John Tesh's "Roundball Roulette"! How long must we hear the same opening theme and bumper music for every NBA telecast. Popular Shapes made at least four songs that are more appropos. MJ don't wanna hear that song no more...look at him!

Corrections Dept.: (1) Teenage Moods are not British. The record label is. But they are from Minnesota. (2) Ruth White's Flowers of Evil came out in 1969, not 1967. I can't keep all these facts under my skull. Nobody pays me to do this, y'know. Next week, maybe I'll be more write-ative. 'Til then, enjoy...and let me know what you like. THANKS!
