This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both Of Us...And It Ain't Me Who'se Gonna Leave

Good morning.  Today, I have a very special guest.  I often reference him on the show, largely because we share a music pool that gets taken to the station and made into my show each week.  Danny Gabai is my best friend, DJ partner, roommate and after buying a new house in Silverlake, he is soon to be my landlord.

Despite the fact that we are best friends, an important dynamic of our relationship is that on a cosmic level, we are attempting to destroy each other.  Frankly, we are only as close as we are because our antlers are locked.

This week, Danny is on staycation (recessions provide such catchy terms) and announced that he was available to come on the show.  We decided to celebrate us in the only way we know how...battle to the death.  This week's theme is songs challenging a showdown, songs about battles, songs about each other and songs about fighting words in general. 

Check out Danny's blog HERE.  It will blow your mind, I promise.
