What's the best album ever created?

ES: "Schwinny Bath Time Mix." It's a compilation.

MM: The Kinks, "The Village Green Preservation Society."

TS: "Dark Side of the Moon" by Pink Floyd?the only excuse to watch "Wizard of Oz" after sixth grade.

Who is the greatest living musician?

ES: Akon.

MM: Since rock no longer has musicians who are super impressive with skills while still being tasteful, I have to go bluegrass/blues and say either Sam Bush, David Grisman, or Jorma Kaukonen.

TS: Since the death of Rick James I have ceased to care.

What is the best show you've ever seen live?

ES: The Hold Steady at Bowdoin. The entire night was magical.

MM: I saw the Strokes in high school, about a month before they got a lot of attention (a friend got me to go), in a tiny club in Hartford, and it was incredible because I didn't see it coming and it was so loud in the club.

TS: Phish with B.B. King at the Continental Airlines Center in Jersey.

What is the first album you ever bought?

ES: Eve 6.

MM: Not sure?either Smashing Pumpkins' "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness," Bush's "Sixteen Stone," or Hootie and the Blowfish's "Cracked Rear View."

TS: Blues Traveler, "Four."

What's your music guilty pleasure?

ES: "Circle of Life," sung by Theo.

MM: While I've been known to despise everything that is '80s hits (as I really do), I will always love everything by the Cars.

TS: The "Moulin Rouge" soundtrack.

If you were dictator of a small country, what would be your national anthem?

ES: Anything by Mannheim Steamroller. National anthems should not be enjoyed by the people.

MM: Frank Zappa's "Billy the Mountain," because we'd be the most absurd little country, and because it's a 24-minute song, and to get an entire nation of people yelling the things in that song would guarantee good morale among the people while I remain dictator.

TS: "Shiny Happy People" by R.E.M.

If you were onstage with a mic in front of thousands of screaming fans, what would you say?

ES: "Welcome to WBOR Brunswick, 91.1 FM, you're listening to Beer and Freshmen."

MM: I would go into Raffi's rap song, "Brush Yo Teeth."

TS: "I have two mottos: No regrets and everybody wang chung tonight!"
