It’s not quite the funk of 40,000 years, but it is the 30-year anniversary of the release of the Michael Jackson funk/pop/rock/Vincent Price opus that IS “Thriller.”
This Paul & Tom Show from February 2011 is one of several that explores Tom’s fascination with the King Of Pop.
All of Tom’s, uh, afflictions are on display here. Wood, Michael Jackson, Scientology. Welcome to “Brookville Top 40” on WOCD. Moving up the charts: “Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy!” Tom thinks you can draw a straight line from Elton to MJ to Cruise. Paul’s just worried Tom Davis III could become Tom Cruise II.
“You’ve got to have a fresh obsession all the time.”
“Careless Whisper–that will carry me through a jury trial.”
“What’s the point where you gave up on Michael Jackson?”
