Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips recently claimed how much of a fan he has been of Cyrus since she has taken a more free spirited route of performance. Check out the video below!

WayneToday marks the 49th birthday of Wayne Coyne (lead singer of The Flaming Lips). I mentioned it on the Morning Mix today and got this great listener email from Paul in Pittsburgh:

"You were mentioning that it was Wayne Coyne from the Flaming Lips’ birthday and he was born in Pittsburgh.  His parents were from the Troy Hill section of the North Side (the little plateau above the Heinz plant).  My older sister was a very good friend of his aunt and used to see them play at their restaurant/bar on Mt Royal Blvd in Shaler, around 20 years ago, when they were still up and coming.  When they played the East Coast they would swing through and play there.  My sister also said Wayne is a very kind and generous fellow."

Nice!!! Take some time to listen to a fellow Pittsburgher today on his birthday :)
