Adam has a standard intro with older #TopDrop from Andy Dick, David Wild is in studio for the first visit in a long time.
Adam is thanking a fan for sending him a flag with a card of authenticity, Superfan Giovanni was also sent one of these flags after sending podcast DVD’s overseas to troops in combat.
Adam is reading the certificate and the letter along with the flag, he’s saying its right below having the asteroid named after him and this Superfan would wager above the Kentucky Colonel status.
Adam is giving supreme thanks to Staff Sergeant Donald, his note was inspiring and meaningful.
BB is commenting on the redacted parts of the note and how that makes it official, Alison is observing how it’s even folded in the special flag way.
Adam is now citing his horrible disease of waking up in advance of his early wake up calls, he’s giving examples of what it does and how it makes him feel.

Dawson is now on mic, David and Alison have some funny replies too and Alison wants to go back to the cologne lyric that Adam was having fun with earlier.
Adam is now mocking the portion of the song that turns into dog like instructions, this has now lead to a “Rambling/Ramblin man” riff from Ace, that connects back to his #Classic Loveline and KLSX musical tangents.
David is wishing a “happy John Hiatt” birthday to Adam and pledges to be the 3rd Superfan to get him on the show, Adam got him on Loveline in 1997, I got him on the KLSX show in 2008 and now if David does it the trifecta will be complete, he would sound so good in that studio!
David is now playing something from Robert Plant as it’s also his birthday, he’s selected a cover of Arthur Alexander’s “If it’s really got to be this way”.

Adam is now bringing up “Rolling down the Highway” calling it the less well-known BTO song, BB is now playing a different song Adam doesn’t want to hear.
Adam is prefacing this one that it’s common for people to screw up the lyrics, Adam’s explaining how it’s an obligatory “take it on the road” song that all bands were seemingly required to record in the 1970’s.

Adam is now stopping Matt to explain his “earn a dollar, don’t worry about saving a nickel” idea.
