00:07:20Gary kicks it off with Violent Femmes by the Violent Femmes.

00:10:00Pat chooses The Pretenders by The Pretenders.
"Top to bottom, a great, great album."

  2. Just about ran into a ditch when Pat was describing how his wife won him over -- especially with the Springsteen lyrics. I was laughing so hard! Almost makes up for the fact that he chose Meatloaf over THE CARS as his #1 debut... but not quite. Very fun and funny show; looking forward to working my way through the episodes in 2017.
