Thank you for filling in, Monty! I appreciate it. Awesome job! As I’m sure you might recall, Please Be Wrong was played once before way back on episode 81. I believe last night was the first time that Jeff us the title. And Pittsburgh does sound familiar. I’d have to listen to that one again with my list of untitled songs in front of me to see if any lyrics match up.

Sorry, just now seeing this. You're very welcome; I'm happy to help. 

 

I actually didn't recall the song when he played it, but I went to enter "Please Be Wrong" on the spreadsheet, I saw that I had it listed as "Please Be Wrong About Me" from before. Likewise, Pittsburgh didn't sound familiar to me, either, but clearly that doesn't mean he hasn't plaid it before.

Wally Pipp was the first baseman for New York Yankees.  In 1925 he sat out a game because he had a headache. He was replaced in the line-up that day by a young player named Lou Gehrig.  Gehrig then played 2130 consecutive games for the Yankees - 15 years without missing a game. Wally Pipp took one day off and never got back in the line-up.

HAhahahahaha.

No danger of me unseating U2Roolz in the re-capping department. I never, ever update the spreadsheet without cross-referencing/double-checking my notes against his as I go. It takes a village, ya know. :D

Nice! 
 

I’d love to post all of the Conan videos, but I think a few of them are missing on YouTube. 

Wilco posted on FB the I'M THE MAN WHO LOVES YOU video from their 7/17/2002 performance on Late Night. I remember to this day seeing them perform on television for the first time, that night it was broadcast. Have looked for it since on YT etc., to no avail, so how nice it is to see it again.

Wow! Susie, thank you for the surprise stream tonight from the show! The sound was amazing! Very unexpected! Glad I caught the notification in time.
 

I don’t want to “cross the streams” with Paul, so I’ll wait for him to report. The Paul cameos were gold. Lol
