  1. Okay this is pretty weird. If you listen to The Frank Nora Time Machine #13, which I posted just a few minutes before this episode, you will hear in my introduction talk about you and malls. I had never talked about you and malls before (although, I did write that one song about you and malls -“Let’s go to the mall, to a deserted mall, maybe there’s a Toys r us there, maybe there’s a Toys r us there, maybe there’s a Toys r us there”.)

    And… you talk about American Idol being cancelled and in the Time Machine #13, you also talked about American Idol, calling it “the best show ever”.

    Not to mention you said you enjoyed “Love American Style” in the Time Machine #13, which of course, was mainly produced by Bill Idelson. (
