He's loving the Christmas ones now because of all the fresh snow that's been falling here the last 24 hours.

I love CNR (the guy). I watch Match Game almost every day. But, that would not be my choice for a song almost every show.

But if Al has fun playing it I guess that's what counts.

Yeah I'm really hoping it's not in tomorrow's set. But Steve enjoys the break!

Al seems really fond of CNR, as he plays that song almost any time he can (when playing acoustically with Jim, tiny desk concert, ACLU benefit, etc.). I'd expect to see it very often over the course of the tour

Yeah CNR is a song that always had me scratching my head, even when it was originally released. Does anyone under the age of 50 who isn't an obsessive Game Show nerd like myself even know who Charles Nelson Reilly is? I guess if Al likes it though, we're gonna hear it a lot.

I'm soooo happy "Fun Zone" is back in the mix. I was afraid they had scrapped it! Now just gotta keep my fingers crossed that they play it in IL or Milwaukee.

Yes, it does seem like Al thinks CNR is a fan favorite. I think it probably was in 2011, but on a tour like this one I doubt anyone is clamoring to hear it.
