Very Good reception

2308 "Enter Sandman" (or even Mariano Rivera) Metallica.  Patrick (?) hunkering down. 
Add this to virus set  ;D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Zt0fLuUSFw
2313 Liked last song, Stay the f*ck home, hunker down, I'm still alive.  Needs energy music, not mellow.
2314 "Stayin' Alive" The Bee Gees (has anyone seen my disco ball?)
2318 "I don't give a sh*t if you think I play this too much". Tell 'em Patrick.  "Black Moon Rising" Creedance Clearwater Revival
2321 Patrick talking into "Magic Carpet Ride" Steppenwolf, he had this on 33 1/3
2324 Patrick cut in mid-song, not psychedelic enough. 
2325 "Don't Let Us Get Sick" Warren Zevon  Mr. Z's "Lawyers, Guns, and Money" or "The Envoy" would work for the set, too.
2329 "Eve of Destruction" Barry McGuire
2332 "Look What They've Done to My Song, Ma" Melanie
2335 Comedy skit about sitting next to each other on plane/standing at urinals
2339 Unid psychedelic music
2353 "Eye in the Sky"   The Alan Parsons Project
0000 "Games Without Frontiers" Peter Gabriel stopped mid-song
0001 skit
0004 "Another Brick in the Wall" Pink Floyd
0006 "Losing My Religion" R.E.M.    Great music Patrick.  Has been working on getting drunk.  A couple of pieces to close us out.
0009 "Zombie" The Cranberries
0013 "Teacher" Jethro Tull
0016 "Thick as a Brick" Jethro Tull
0017 "We gotta get out of here.  We will be here for you throughout the viral period."
0019 "Won't Get Fooled Again" The Who
0026 Off
