good afternoon, Kurt!!! and omg, "Fly, Robin, Fly"!!! how i HATED that song when i was in high school! you could not get AWAY from it!!!!
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 3:15pm G:

It was even all over Brasilian AM radio practically hourly when I lived there in 74. Truly it was the universal earworm of its moment.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 3:23pm Sem Chumbo:

Working in a Top 40 station, locked in the copy office, this thing was in "power rotation!" for weeks. Could not turn the office monitor off.
  Fri. 2/22/13 3:28pm Listening Out There:

...wait...I took a wrong turn and ended up at the dentist's office. At least it sounds like it... :)
  Fri. 2/22/13 3:29pm Listening Out There:

...see, it's just this bicuspid...down here on the left...
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 3:30pm Kurt Gottschalk:

you wanna hear a dentist's drill, check out a butthole surfers guitar solo!

hi everyone.

Doesn't Syklubb fra Hælvete mean something along the lines of knitters from hell Norweigian?
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 3:55pm Caryn:

@ngh: essentially. Maybe more a "sewing circle from hell".
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 3:58pm steve:

this is quite the girl group special...
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 3:59pm northguineahills:

oh, I see it now, I was going w/ my gut's interpretation before letting my brain interfere.

Yes-Afri-Rampo ! They broke up just before their last album was supposed to come out :(
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:01pm Caryn:

Hey, "Play Misty for Me" just started on tv! DJ-related viewing. Although rather disturbing viewing...
  Fri. 2/22/13 4:01pm Short Hills Brad:

Takes me back. For the record, 'kore ga mayaku da" means "this is a narcotic". Not a good thing in Japan
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:02pm steve:

not a good thing? whats wrong with a narcotic?

yikes. i see...
  Fri. 2/22/13 4:07pm Short Hills Brad:

He did not like prison. He said that in prison in Japan, you are supposed to sit there all day and contemplate your crimes. Heck, that's what I do all the time, anyway. Here in my mom's basement.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:07pm steve:

hmm never knew the bodysnatchers were all female
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:09pm steve:

wow. had he never seen Midnight Express?!

brillllllliant KG!

Ah, it's back, now.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:26pm northguineahills:

When I was in the 6th grade in Japan, a classmate of mine was found w/ possession of marijuana, and he and his whole family were deported.
  Fri. 2/22/13 4:27pm Short Hills Brad:

Steve, he probably did see midnight express. He lives in Thailand now, and I am guessing he is not trying to become a conossieur (sp?) of prisons.
  Fri. 2/22/13 4:28pm Short Hills Brad:

He and his whole family!!! Sounds like big trouble at ASIJ! (ps, do I have to be good at math to post here??)
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:29pm Caryn:

@SHB: if you get a profile, no math is required
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:34pm northguineahills:

Since he was a minor (he was 12), and his father was employed by the US Navy. It's part of the contract the U.S. military has w/ Japan.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:38pm steve:

dam, thats crazy
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:38pm steve:

yeah, prison isn't all action and synth arpeggios
  Fri. 2/22/13 4:39pm Short Hills Brad:

I will have to think up a good profile. Like this: "I am devastatingly good looking, and also good at math."
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:41pm glenn:

huh. i'm also devastatingly good looking, and i don't need math.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:42pm Caryn:

I'm not particularly good looking, and I have a calculator.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:43pm Sem Chumbo:

@SHBrad: so a Russell Crowe as John Nash type, then?
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:44pm Caryn:

With or without the paranoid schitzophrenia?
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:44pm steve:

man, the Shangri-Las really had some of the best production ever. love that reverb.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:48pm glenn:

THIRTY SONGS??? that's it?
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:50pm glenn:

well, they're still the greatest girl group ever, and i don't care what diana ross thinks.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:57pm glenn:

and it kinda makes me wonder why my "best of the shangri-las" c.d. has 25 tracks on it. why not put the other 5 on it and call it "the complete shangri-las"? yeah, answer that, mr. c.d. compiler guy.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:58pm steve:

i wonder which 5 didnt make it
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 4:59pm Caryn:

@Steve: the 5 that were not as good as "the best" according to some compiler's opinion
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:03pm glenn:

oh, and neko case does "the train from kansas city", but i'm not sure if she's recorded it.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:04pm steve:

right... im curious what they are.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:05pm Carmichael:

Hi li'l dawgies, and hello Hurt and Lisa.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:12pm Carmichael:

Ha ha! "Kurt".
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:15pm Carmichael:

"With whose music she has long been obsessed" is the correct usage. Since Alison's not here ...
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:15pm Caryn:

@steve: "Wishing Well", "Hate to Say I Told You So", "It's Easier to Cry". "Simon Says", "Simon Speaks", "Twist and Shout", "Shout", "The Boy", "Bull Dog", "So Much in Love", "Goodnight My Love (Pleasant Dreams)" and "You Can't Sit Down" are at least not among the 25 in the "Best of...", so it seems there are more than 30 songs. I'm just saying.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:17pm glenn:

my c.d. has 25 tracks, but it's an older issue. i got it in 2000. the new c.d. of the same name (and with the same cover) has 17 tracks.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:18pm steve:

thats funny. my greatest hits CD does have The Boy, Wishing Well, and Bull Dog, but is also missing the rest of those. and the greatest hits LP i have has Twist and Shout, The Boy, and Bulldog.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:19pm Caryn:

I'm going to check out how many tracks are on the "complete collection".
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:20pm Caryn:

"Complete collection" has 40 songs and 4 ads.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:21pm Carmichael:

If you purchase THIS collection, you'll get them all (along with a few more): www.youtube.com...
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:21pm glenn:

none of the songs caryn listed above are on my c.d., and there's 12 tracks there, so yeah, there has got to be more than 30.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:22pm Caryn:

Maybe it's 40, and it was just a slip of the tongue.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:23pm glenn:

gordon lightfoot is THE MAN! that's all.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:23pm steve:

bahaha that's hilarious Carmichael
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:25pm Caryn:

Although the "Complete collection" doesn't have "Twist and Shout", but does have some "alternate takes" and live tracks, so hmm...
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:28pm Caryn:

@Carm: hah! Man, I love SCTV...
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:28pm steve:

i think you're right Caryn
  Fri. 2/22/13 5:38pm Nate:

Shakin Ray Levis is freakin awesome! Great show today!
  Fri. 2/22/13 5:46pm coelacanth:

Thank you Lisa MacKinney. Great show Kurt,all round. Thank you.
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

So who is labeling those CDs? The same guys that label boxes of fish?
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:55pm northguineahills:

I remember seeing the Shaking Ray Levis open for Derek Bailey at The Church of Existentialism in Atlanta Georgia in 1997. They were amazing!
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:56pm Carmichael:

Thanks Kurt and Lisa!
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:56pm northguineahills:

Thanks for a great show, have a great weekend everyone!
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:57pm glenn:

caryn, i don't know if you saw this a couple days back. bookwormavra.wordpress.com...
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 5:58pm steve:

great show
Avatar Fri. 2/22/13 6:03pm Caryn:

@glenn: yep, saw it. The Toronto area has been known for white squirrels for a long time.
Oh, and The Shangri-Las' singles total 30 songs (A and B sides included), so maybe that's where the 30 comes from. So, 30 songs on the singles, more songs overall.
