Hello dere Amanda, and hello to the DrumSum devotees.

Clams are even better for dipping than crinkle chips!

Hi all! Nice to greet you in a friendly way.

I'll never forget Deco Cuffe singing this song in the Commitments.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 12:05pm Doug Schulkind:

This song is popular in Missouri.

Holy crap, another drenching downpour in central BK.... I know it felt really humid yesterday, and now a mile or two of water vapor is dumping on us for hours, in reliquidized form...

Doug -- that dates back to Margaret Truman performing it at the White House frequently.
Avatar Wed. 5/8/13 12:08pm G:

but did you bring Khlam dip from ken's board?
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 12:09pm Doug Schulkind:

I heard that Truman really bombed.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 12:09pm Carmichael:

And you thought Harry could rock?!? She could burn the flippin' place DOWN!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 12:10pm pacific standard simon:

Yeah, there was a lot of fallout from that.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 12:10pm Amanda:

@Carmichael -- I know! I have the same thing about the Commitments. I think they got cut off, that was the scene where the lights went out and Derek the bass player got electrocuted. I love the Commitments.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 12:12pm Carmichael:

Today is Thomas Pynchon Appreciation day, hence my avatar. Go read a book.

Yes Amanda, great movie. Shot in an area of Dublin I know well.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 12:14pm john:

Always loved this Swing Out Sister song.

BTW, my pledge premium'n'prize package arrived Monday -- it was like Christmas. The amount of money it took to mail it to me was a bit embarrassing, though, so I'll be refunding that to FMU.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 12:23pm fred:

@Carmichael: I have a special fondness for the crying of lot 49, despite its flaws. Any rumors about a new one? Inherent Vice was nice, but years ago
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 12:23pm Amanda:

Congrats, pss! I hope you enjoy it very very much. You are too kind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 12:25pm Uncle Michael:

Wha'z happening?
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 12:26pm Carmichael:

I haven't heard anything, Fred. Pynchon must be 500 years old by now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 12:26pm pacific standard simon:

It's ALL happening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 12:27pm Uncle Michael:

I actually won Joan Jett in a charity raffle.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 12:29pm fred:

One thing I like about him is that there are scenes in his books that I find hilarious and nobody I've ever met in person even understands what the joke is. WFMU literature anyone?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 12:30pm pacific standard simon:

That's how I felt while reading Robert Coover.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 12:33pm fred:

@pacific standard simon: thanks for the lead, I'll check out his books. Timely tip, I exhausted my favorites authors, and didn't really like Faulkner despite the recommendations
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 12:37pm Doug Schulkind:

Beginning this coming Monday, D:O Radio here on the Drummer Stream will switch from a bi-weekly to a weekly broadcast schedule! And this wonderful show from the folks at the blog Destination:Out is now LIVE, not pre-recorded.

Woo and hoo!

Listen in every Monday, Noon to 3pm (Eastern)

@Doug: I should be really excited about this, but I'll miss Irene's show too. I know there are archives, but there's so much good music on the WFMU live stream, I can't catch up
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 12:44pm Amanda:

Go go go D:O!

excellent d:o news!

Interesting set, here.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 12:48pm Doug Schulkind:

The age of the Internet has transformed life from the desperation of dearth to overwhelming overstimulation.

Hey, put that on a bumpersticker and sell it online!
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 12:58pm Amanda:

I am enjoying this longer-than-usual set with its longer-than-usual tracks.

Anything with Van Dyke Parks is OK with me.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 1:01pm Dominick:

Wow! Vanilla Fudge into Van Dyke Parks. Mind blown.
  Wed. 5/8/13 1:01pm frenchee:

great show, Ms. NAZ!
Love the VAn Dyke Parks songs so much.
  Wed. 5/8/13 1:03pm frenchee:

yes that was a very good segue, Dominick!
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 1:04pm ndbob:

afternoon Amanda and everyone... I see you played a song by the Candy Machine - I used to work with one of the group members
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 1:05pm Amanda:

Thanks so much, guys! @ndbob, that is wild. I was thinking as I played it that they definitely needed more recognition...
Avatar Wed. 5/8/13 1:06pm Dervish:

And this, this is an inspired selection.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 1:13pm listener james from westwood:

after a blast of thunder up in westwood, rain has resumed. i think we're in for on & off thunderboomers thru tomorrow.

Sondre Lerche? Neat! Unknown to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 1:19pm pacific standard simon:

@Amanda - Sometimes it feels like a warm bath, sometimes, like a smack on the side of the head with a pig bladder.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 1:20pm Brian in UK:

Hello Amanda & listeners.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 1:21pm Uncle Michael:

Let's discuss the myths and realities, regarding H, JF&R and the T-Bones.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 1:23pm Amanda:

Hello Brian and other listeners! @UM, I am just confused as to why Joe Frank was the only one allowed to use his entire name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 1:24pm Brian in UK:

Famed for keeping Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields off the No.1 spot here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 1:24pm Uncle Michael:

Well, I can't shed any light on *that*.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 1:24pm Brian in UK:

A Playboy 7". Nice.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 1:26pm ndbob:

@UM I always thought that the T-Bones and HJF&R were basically the same group
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 1:28pm Uncle Michael:

After the "Wrecking Crew" guys scored a hit with their cover of the Alka Seltzer commercial under the name The T-Bones, "Whatever Shape Your Stomach Is In," they had to hire a band to tour behind it. They hired some guys that ultimately called themselves H,JF&R...but those guys didn't make the record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 1:29pm Uncle Michael:

I'm agnostic as to whether they played on the second record...which I have...but not in front of me.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 1:30pm ndbob:

@UM ty - never knew that
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 1:31pm Uncle Michael:

The L.A. studio guys were a) not pretty enough or young enough to be a concert draw and b) made way too much money in the studio to hit the road to support a record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 1:34pm Uncle Michael:

This is a great set, Amanda.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 1:34pm pacific standard simon:

My favorite version.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 1:36pm Amanda:

Sanks very much!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 1:41pm Brian in UK:

Off to see this film shortly in a renovated cinema, single screen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 1:41pm pacific standard simon:

Say, Uncle Michael... can I interest you in playing We Five's "Cast Your Fate To The Wind", this Friday?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 1:45pm Eugene:

This Foundations song is lovely.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 1:52pm Amanda:

@Eugene -- I know, I was unable to follow it with anything because it sounded so good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 1:54pm efd:

Hi Amanda and commenteers! Great to hear that Gas Hounds song!
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 1:56pm ndbob:

excellent show Amanda!
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 1:56pm Carmichael:

OK, back again. Yes, the T-Bones became HJF&R. Their 1st hit was actually "Sippin' & Chippin'", which became a potato chip commercial. I have the vinyl somewhere also, as well as the 45 of No Matter What Shape (on Liberty).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 1:56pm pacific standard simon:

@Amanda - That probably explains why no live show follows yours on the GTDR stream. Great show, once again!
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 1:57pm Amanda:

Awwwwww that is sooooo sweeeeet
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 1:59pm Uncle Michael:

@Simon: I might be able to accommodate...

@Carmichael: Sippin' & Chippin' was after Whatever Shape and HJF&R didn't play on Whatever Shape...is this a throw down?
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 2:00pm Carmichael:

Thanks Amanda. Burn in hell, fuckers!!!
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 2:00pm ndbob:

Lutefisk is a much beloved food - by some in North Dakota
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/8/13 2:00pm Uncle Michael:

Thank you, Amanda!
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 2:01pm Carmichael:

Here's some info, Michael: www.allmusic.com...

You're right about the order of the hits, I had it bass ackwards.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 2:02pm Amanda:

Thanks everyone! Talk to you next week. Don't forget to mail your card to your mama today if you haven't already.
