Adam now needs some more of ‘The Cure’ to cleanse his musical palate, he cites the time he mocked the program director of the channel, he’s forgetting the episode of Greg Fitzsimmons ‘Fitzdog Radio’ where they walked into the studio live on air and confronted ‘The Swedish Eagle’ one of the founders of Classic Loveline about his channel’s song rotation.

“It’s a chicken shit move to say hey end war and then go fuck a stranger” – Adam

Adam is now clarifying his Bruce Springsteen stance, he’s overrated as a writer, but not as a performer, Adam is saying he’s tough on these guys, he’s only marginally overrated as a songwriter.
Adam says most people might have John Lennon ranked in the top spot with McCartney in 2nd and George in a distance 3rd place, but the reality is probably reversed.

Adam is now sharing his advice for couples in his hypothetical couples counseling group, he says he would tell them to commit to walking 4 times per week, Alison clarifies, and the advice is for them to walk together, funny.
