The twists and turns on this week's conversational motor way are acutely sharp, some verging on hairpin, and we recommend that all proper safety measures be taken. Some of the briefly visited rest stops along the way include: The best Super Bowl commercials (one of which never aired, the other premiered days earlier-- go figure), social networking for better theological clarity, the growing (and welcome) backlash against melismatic vocals, the sudden proliferation of the so-called muffin top, and society's inevitable slide into Wall-E inspired sloth. Also, Chris dives into the Twitter-verse, Rob and Thom nerd out about Queen, radio worlds collide as NDR meets NPR for this week's Greatest Song You've Never Heard, and the saga of the Sybian takes on a new wrinkle... err, so to speak. Music by a trifecta of Johns: John Faye, John Hoskinson, and John Flanders & Double Helix. We're #7! We're #7!
