Is there a way to include which song/artist is playing during the show? Or play the tunes one at a time through a link?

Sorry, no. But, most of the time it should be obvious from the title which song is playing. And I do announce them in the set breaks.

Great show, Mike. Enjoyed all of it, especially "Winter Wonderland". Good parody, and we all know the feeling. Looking forward to next week, as always.

Wow!!! I haven't heard Sean Gagnier in about 45 years. Thanks for triggering some memories with that song. I'm so enjoying the other songs too.

Glad to be of service, Carl. Sadly, Sean passed away quite a few years ago.
