It's the America's Damp 40 season finale! Dave Mason, Silver, Leo Sayer, Barbra Streisand, and Chicago file onto the big stage, and Shaddo and Peej discuss moist chord structures, running over cassettes in Grimsby parking lots, the return of the "DON'T TOUCH THAT!!" shriek, unmodulated Broadway belting, and the Jordan-almond schmaltz shell that is mid-'80s Peter Cetera. We talk about what we've learned; we share our top 10s, and yours; and we present the entire black-letter-law Damp 40 in all its frizzy glory. In WMST Moist FM station meetings, "perfect score" can mean a lot of things; find out what in Episode 08. (And for real, just...don't touch that.)

The Brothers Byrne share intro duties, and our outro is by Joe Jackson. Interstitial music provided by The Queers. To contact us or buy our books, visit To become a patron of the show, visit
