Know the Song, Don't Know the Artist

Last night on the way home from work I was listening to Cosmic Commander's Sonic Radio on Faction. I heard a song and would really like to find out who did it.

Sometime between 11pm and midnight on my drive home I heard Styrofoam. It sounded like he said it was by Mike Nessmith, but I looked that up and either it was never on an album ever or one of us is wrong. I have more faith in my remembering the Mike part of the name for what it's worth. But it could have easily just been a name that the host said around when he said the title.

I do know for sure that it wasn't Dr. Feelgood's version. It sounded more, um, Jack Johnson-ish than that. If nothing else I've seen in my search that the show will be rebroadcast on Wednesday which would have the song played between 9 and 10pm (hopefully while I'm at work still).

The Styrofoam 'Oh Yes!' Band covering Michael Nesmith (third clip on page)?

No. This is the right song, but not the right version of it.

I really should have linked to it in the first post.

It wasn't Mike Ness from Social Distortion by chance? ( I can't find any record of him playing that song, but he does have a history of covering similar material.

Styrofoam by Mike Wilhelm and Loose Gravel?

Normally, I would recommend Dogstarradio to find out your satellite radio playlists, but Sonic Radio doesn't seem to publish a playlist for some reason. You don't say what time zone you are in, so maybe you will have better luck searching than I did, though.

It does say that you can contact if all else fails. Worse come to worse, have your phone loaded with Shazam / Soundhound ready and waiting for the replay...

I don't know how you people know all this random stuff, but amyms has pulled it out.
