Hey Listeners,

Tonight’s show title takes its name from the great New York Dolls track from the early 70s. It is also the title of a recently released Martin Scorsese rock doc about the band’s lead singer, David Johansen. The film isn’t the best rock doc I have ever seen, but it is worth a viewing. Since watching it I have not been able to get Frenchette out of my head. Keep it tuned here, but beware there may be an ear-worm lurking in the set list.

The Haberdasher

P.S. As I was preparing for tonight’s show I thought that the title could also be about my own personality crisis and my musical tastes. We’ll chat about that too.
