Kevin Nealon Guest DJs on The Morning Mix

While he was in town performing, Comedian and actor Kevin Nealon plays Guest DJ on the Morning Mix with Cindy Howes.  Kevin Nealon is best known for anchoring Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live and his character Doug Wilson on the show Weeds.  Nealon also recently released the comedy album, Whelmed, But Not Overly.

For his first song, Nealon chose “And It Stoned Me” by Van Morrison.  “The thing with Van Morrison is that you see the song titles and you immediately think it’s something [other than] what it really is.  This is one of those particular titles because you’re thinking, Wow, it’s about really good grass or something.  But it’s kind of a recollection of his childhood, like a day in the summer growing up and how he gets rained on.  You can’t get really get stoned from rain,” states Nealon.

On his second track, “Little Lion Man” by Mumford & Sons, Nealon says,  “Mumford & Sons is a band that I know just came on the scene very recently.  I kind of like the melody of their songs.  I not really sure what this song’s about, but I like the feel of it.  I think it’s definitely a fun song to listen to and you have to be in the mood for it and I’m in the mood for this song right now,” adds Nealon.

The final selection of his Guest DJ set, Nealon picked “What’s Going On?” by Marvin Gaye. “I’m a big Marvin Gaye fan, I love all that Motown stuff and this is a song I must have listened to a million times growing up.  It kind of starts off with a party atmosphere and I think it’s appropriate for the last song here.”
