Mark and Lynda will return in June, but we wanted to share some special shows with you! Back in October of 2013, Steve Lukather joins us for a long show.

It's Super Sexy Friday! Ladies, you may be worrying about nothing: We share all of the things that guys don't care about in bed.

Kathy BeckMark knew how to pronounce "duvet" hilarious! Regarding Diary, I think the guy was single as well. You have to remember when that song was made. I don't think adultery was sung about as much back then. Mark, I hope you find a new favorite song after vacation. "Girl Crush" is hitting too close to home right now and I can't pull the earphones off fast enough. Lastly, beware Beverly Hills is activating their red light cameras on June 1st. Have a great vacation!4 hours ago

Matthew-son joins the show today, and we hear his latest, including more about his band Big Language. Lynda has some simple ways for you men out there to be more likeable. Some will be easy, others are a little harder! We'll also get you thinking real hard about the quality of your handshake.

Denise AlbertsHi M&L. I'm your fan in Chicago...I was listening to the podcast on this morning's bus ride to work, laughing out loud at once again hearing that damn BREAD song and your ongoing "discussion." Adding Matt to the chaos makes it even funnier. I was getting stares from other riders, but I didn't care. Wishing you a restful vacation. Thanks for all the entertainment.. U rock.6 days ago
Sarah FelicianoOh Linda....I was not expecting your shout-out for "the stinger". I just about spit a mouthful of water all over my computer!! Thank you all for the laughs every day!!!6 days ago

Rowdy RattsJordan, were you referring to Alpine roller coasters such as this one in Austria? “Relaxing” isn’t quite the word I’d use.. Love the shows, keep it up! (More country and less Bread though). www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqCkICXWdWI6 days ago
Ted KrehbielHey Mark, I now have to agree with you after reading this article describing Bread's "Diary" .... They may not have had the critical reputation as some of their peers on the West Coast music scene in the early 70’s, but few could boast the chart success of Bread during that time period. Their singles, ten of which rocketed into the US Top 20, embodied the sensitive singer/songwriter era. Most of those hits were written and sung by David Gates, who told Gary James of Classicbands.com that he knew instinctively when he had a hit song most of the time. Except once.
“Nine times out of ten my instincts are right,” Gates said. ‘Diary’ fooled me. I didn’t think it was a commercial hit record. I thought it was a gorgeous, intimate, little ballad, and it never occurred to me it would be a Top 40 song, which it ended up being.”
“Diary” actually surged as high as #15 in 1972. Maybe the one thing that Gates overlooked when assessing the song is that is the lure of a great twist ending. It’s the kind of a thing that’s a little easier to pull off in a movie when there are a couple of hours to set the surprise up. It’s a much tougher task in a song, but Gates pulls it off while still delivering a resonant story of unrequited love.
With plaintive acoustic guitar and watery keyboards setting the stage, Gates begins by singing, “I found her diary underneath a tree/And started reading about me.” In possession of this precious book and privy to the innermost thoughts of the girl he secretly loves, the narrator is surprised to find that she feels the same way about him. “Wouldn’t you know it,” he sings. “She wouldn’t show it.”
As the song progresses, he keeps waiting for an outward sign from this girl to match what he has read, yet none is forthcoming. He rationalizes this peculiarity away and begins daydreaming about their future life together. Everything seems hunky-dory for the first two verses, setting us up for a ride off into the sunset.
Well, the sun sets all right, only to fall out of the sky and land right on the narrator. He begins the last verse in the same way as the first, but the lines that follow portend doom: “The words began to stick and tears to flow/The meaning now was clear to see.” Uh-oh.
The revelation comes next: “The love she’d waited for/Was someone else not me.” He had literally misread the whole thing, fooled all over again by her placid demeanor: “Wouldn’t you know it/She wouldn’t show it.” In one of the noblest gestures under extreme duress in pop music history, somehow this guy musters up the strength to give this couple his blessings: “And as I go through my life/I will wish for her his wife/All the sweet things they can find/All the sweet things they can find.”
Maybe it is just an intimate little song masquerading as a hit single, but what’s certain is that Gates and Bread manage an impressive feat with “Diary.” It’s an expertly-constructed book of love that hides the heartbreak waiting in the final pages.

Rowena RubinListening to the 4 of you debate about the meaning of the lyrics to that Bread song reminded me of the Mark & Brian show when you all were debating whether the picture on the Eagles album Hotel California was the Hollywood Hotel or the former mental hospital that's now a college.6 days ago

Richard WolfeHey Mark , Lynda , Jordan and Red .
Really loved discussion about whether the guy was married to her are not in" Diary" simply riveting!
but you did get me thinking though, what about the diary and self he says" I found a diary underneath the tree" now was just diarrhea laying on the ground underneath the tree or was it buried beneath the tree what do you guys think? Also loved the roller coasters list I have been on a few of those. Thank you for making my day, Richard in Redlands5 days ago
Troy Orange-CountyBread: Diary
…“And as I go through my life, I will give to her my wife
All the sweet things that I can find”
Lynda, at this point, he believed that she was writing about him. He then realized how much he loved her and told himself that he will marry her and will give her all the sweet things in life that he can find.
…”And as I go through my life, I will wish for her HIS wife
All the sweet things that she can find
All the sweet things THEY can find”
At this point he wishes her to be HIS wife. He then wishes that she finds all the sweet things in life that she can. He then goes the extra mile and wishes that both of them can find all the sweet things in life that they can.
Basically, he loves her sooo much; he just wishes that she will be happy at any cost, even if it means it will be without him and with someone else.6 days ago
It's been too many weeks since we've spoken to Katie! Get ready for the Katie Show today. Hear about her second taping on The Bold & The Beautiful. Then she provides some critical analysis of the songs Mark is playing. Then some of the most hated women in Hollywood, and many of them are dear to Kati…
Daniel RamirezMark, listening to you post music is something I can listen to all day long! Keep doing that and I just might leave my wife and marry you...On second thought, I'll stay with my wife and just listen to the podcast over and over again. Thank you for all that you guys do!

Ian M. VoyagisI have always thought that the Radio God had the most contagious laugh ever, and he does. Many times I hit the 15 second rewind button just to hear Mark laugh again and again. But Jordan cracking up at Skeeter's joke about Tony Bennett shitting on stage was priceless!! So great to hear Jordan so happy these days. Penguin Joke Ian7 days ago
Ray De LeonI posted this on the MITM page, but wanted to share this here with you as well Mark:
I'd just like to say how moved I was by that story you told about Letterman. I don't know you personally, and of course not Letterman either. That being said, I found myself getting emotional right before the point that you did on air.
Old Man Thompson, your love for what you do on the air really comes across to us dumb listeners, and there's no question about it.
I think that's what did it for me. To know that you have such a love for this, and telling that story of what helped shape who you are now was a great piece of radio. Belly laughs were unnecessary.
Just good ole raw emotion. Way to go man!
Also I chuckled when Katie told her side of that lemon bar story.7 days ago
Christopher PetersI've been an extra on Hawaii 5-0 several times this past season with shoots ranging from 6-13 hours, and we would leave LONG before the crew's day ended. I've never had any lines or chances to eat pubes like Katie, but watching the process is fascinating. For the record, of 30+ hours on set, my total 'background' screen time so far: about a minute and a half! Does that count agains my 15 minutes of fame? Btw, love the 'puking' DJ postin' songs...! In the words of the radio god: NICE!1 week ago

Also I know you guys are going on vacation I was wondering if I could get a birthday chicken for my 54th bday next week. May 27th. I also wanted to tell Lynda - per her advise a while back - I stepped up and "put my big girl panties on" ...2 yrs sober June 12th. Thank you both for the laughter and love. I truly love you so.

Gina Gentile' GambleI'm glad you mentioned about the IRS call scam. Sadly, my mom called me two weeks ago and she had experieced the threat. They left a message basically yelling saying she owed money and she was going to be arrested if she didn't call back. Poor thing, I had to advise her it was a scam. It's sad how they can scare these older people.1 week ago
Tom PowellOpen letter to Troy in Orange County: First of all bro, you do have your facts straight and Dave is guilty as charged. While it is easy to lash out and show yor support of M&L by giving Dave the public beating he might deserve. It's easier however to simply ignore the hatters and dismiss them. Why join the hatters? For me, and I am just speaking for myself. The M&L community of like minded folks would rather our beloved M&L hosts stick up for themselves. If they feel that they should call Dave, or any other listener out I assure you that they will. While I, and I would expect many others agree with your assessment. There are better ways of expressing your love and support to the show. Just my two cents. Thanks for the sentiment but cant we all just get along? After all, it's not like Dave Faulkner is Gregg Stanford! HA!1 week ago

Dan CrowtherSo I got a little behind on shows and I'm catching up. I was listening to the show about working out when you're sick. About 2 weeks ago I woke up with the flu the day I was supposed to run a full marathon. Well at mile 9 I started puking! Needless to say when I hit the half mile split I turned and only finished the half marathon. I knew better but tried to push through and got really sick. I'm looking forward to catching up on shows this afternoon. Thanks guys!1 week ago

Richard WolfeOh yeah, the best part of today;s show for me is Lynda giving me the business about leaving a comment about Mark in the morning, I feel like I have been baptized into the show. My puppy dog SHELBY likes to listen too.
Richard WolfeGood morning Mark , Lynda , Jordan and Red.. O.K I may have made a few comments about Mark in the morning the last few weeks but the MARK AND LYNDA PODCAST is number one. In fact I would give up a month of Mark in the morning shows for one MARK AND LYNDA PODCAST...........O.K maybe a week.... but where else would I have learned that the vagina cleans itself or that " pegging" is NOT something I would really want to try . Anyway today's show was funny and educational. By the way Lynda , the show were you responded to Noah's e-mail to Mark about how he should take a writing class is my number one favorite show of all ! I never get tired of hearing it! so score one for Lynda. love you guys, 'DICK' in Redlands. P.S Mark in the morning was just o.k today.
Troy Orange-CountyOpen Letter to Dave Faulkner:
Let me see if I got this right...
Many moons ago, on the original M&L site, you did nothing but bring hate and talked shit about Mark, Lynda, Jordan, their children, and the listeners. And to make things even worse, you were pretty fucking proud of it.
Now you call the Podcast with some bullshit story about rehab and you want everyone to feel sorry for you lame ass? Dude, it’s not going to happen! Not today, not tomorrow, not ever!
So go back to doing whatever it is you do down in your Momma’s basement and go fuck yourself!1 week ago
Amy and her boyfriend, Bradley, join the program today! Bradley shares his experience being a soap opera extra, and Amy spurs on an impromptu Janet Jackson frenzy.

Joe LoveM&L... Just when I thought it can't get any better... BAM... you guys knock it out of the park again. Been listening since day 1 on the podcast and since about December of '87 on your other gig. Linda just fucking cracks me up. Skeeter isms... On cuddling after sex, " Hell no, I just want him to get that stinky thing off of me". The other day you guys were pissy at each other, bad day I guess and she says, "Listen here Mother Fucker" I about drove off the road it was so funny. You all, and I mean everyone in the family including Jordan, really make my day that much more fun. I must say though, I am having a little trouble getting into the the MIM thing. I try and listen and I know its the one paying the bills and should take center stage, but... I just love the intimacy of the podcast. Everything about it, down to the sound quality, is first rate. Its just so fun. You have got the best job in the world and you can do it from your home!!! P.S. Just arrived In New Orleans to work on a project for a few months. I agree with you and Skeeter, this place sucks. There are no social redeeming values about this town at all. Can not wait to get the hell outta here.1 week ago

Bullock the gay actor that co-stared on the sitcom Too Close for Comfort; I know how much Mark and Lynda want grandkids but as long as Bradley is in the picture they won't be getting those grandkids from Amy I say that because I'm convinced Bradley is gay, not that there is anything wrong with that.1 week ago

Kendall SmithMatt, you made a comment on Thursday's show I found somewhat insensitive. Or, if you'd finished it I and it went where I thought it was going it likely would have have been. You mentioned the person working in the grocery store at 2 am is.....or something like that, and it stopped. What did you mean? They're slow? They can't get a better job? They're lazy? Not all of us had rich parents and lived a pampered life. Not all of us had college, room and board paid for by our parents. You don't know that person's story. Sure, maybe you're sort of paying your bills now. But you should think before you judge others in that manner.2 weeks ago
David E. WilkinsMark & Lynda, as you know a "Date Night" doesn't have to mean going out on the town... Saturday night our date night consist of a wonderful home cooked meal, a nice bottle of wine and a great movie to watch on the home theatre system. Mark, Tammi (my wife) & I loved your movie 2:13. It kept us on the edge of seats the whole time. Great job to you & the Executive Producer of the movie.
To: Jordan - I think it's time for us to start a support group... After seeing Mark's naked butt shot on the movie my eyes have been burning. Jordan, now I know how you feel after seeing Mark naked.
