Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Hi Bob...and all you lovely HINKY DINKERS!
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:02pm duke:

Hinky Dinky wasn't that the TV show in the 50's where kids wrote on the TV screen?
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:03pm Alex In Illinois:

zzzzzzzz z z z z zz . . . Here I am. This looks like Hindy Dinky time. Landed in the right place.

Winky Dink Duke
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:03pm Doug Schulkind:

Is this the ice rink? The kitchen sink? The Wink Martindale reunion? The brink of disaster? Friends, it is ALL those things.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:04pm ndbob:

I had a Winky Dink screen

The Trems. Bass player had the high vox.

Resistance is futile.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:05pm listener james from westwood:

i followed the linky-dink from doug's playlist.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:05pm still b/p:

You can lead a Hink to music, but you can't make him Dink.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:05pm Brian in UK:

I followed my nose.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:06pm Alex In Illinois:

@Duke:
I was not around in the 50's, but I have some faint recollection of some show in the 60's that had something like that.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:07pm Uncle Michael:

Is that a long trip, Brian?
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:08pm Uncle Michael:

Is the audio suitable today? I've made an adjustment.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:15pm Dominick:

audio seems fine
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:15pm duke:

@alex apparently winky dink made a come-back in the late 60's and again in the 90's.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:16pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks, Dominick.

Anyone know if the truckers are still arresting congress today?
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:17pm Alex In Illinois:

If you do not recall tis sing, then you were not living in the US in the mid to late 1970's
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:19pm Alex In Illinois:

This song made CB radios popular. I remember a made for TV movie, first called "Citizen's Band", and later retitled "Handle with Care". Anyone remember that?
  Fri. 10/11/13 12:21pm Jack:

Never heard this version, really cool, office slow, can listen (for a change), great so far
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:22pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks, Jack. Glad you have your ears on.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:22pm duke:

@UM It looks like the truckers protest isn't working too well. Congress already shut down the government, so the truckers weren't needed.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:29pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks, duke. I suppose I should have one eye on the news for breaking trucker sedition.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:29pm holland oats:

methinks our dj is a fan of breaking bad
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:30pm Uncle Michael:

holland...not a value judgement here...but I've never seen a minute of it. I know they used Baby Blue. Did they use this?
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:31pm Doug Schulkind:

Gotta run and get a haircut. A few hairs, in fact. Have a great rest of the show, Uncle!
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:32pm holland oats:

no but i think you played BB last week no?
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:32pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks Doug. Thanks for warming up the Internet for me.

more cowbell please
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:32pm ken in denver:

Actually, C.W. McCall (William Fries) was later mayor of Ouray, Colorado. But he did work with Davis. en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:34pm Uncle Michael:

It was Fries' ad agency in Omaha...if I remember correctly....which I might not.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:34pm Uncle Michael:

The face and the voice were different people.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:40pm listener james from westwood:

i suspect there were itunes sales spikes for "baby blue" and "el paso" 2 mondays ago.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:41pm Uncle Michael:

I understand that BB roared up the charts in the wake of the finale.

El Paso probably doesn't need the help. I mean...c'mon.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:44pm listener james from westwood:

you never know ... might have been new to a couple of folks in the audience. if so, a happy discovery!
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:45pm Uncle Michael:

Probably so.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:47pm listener james from westwood:

hell, the show busted out a custom-made narcocorrido on the viewers in season 2. not often a feature of most cable fare.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 12:48pm listener james from westwood:

riddle's route 66 theme: ironclad WIN.

Well, one more time.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:01pm listener james from westwood:

had 'em once as a side to steak with a wee bit of gorgonzola crumbled into 'em. piquant and enticing.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:02pm Uncle Michael:

sounds *fine*
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:09pm KevinfromBayRidge:

High Noonish to all, Jump in, the sound is fine!
@Alex(12:19)- Yup . Saw in in the St Marks Cinema circa '79. good un, but almost anything was fun at that dearly departed ( think it's a Gap ) venue!
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:12pm Uncle Michael:

Hey there, KFBR
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:17pm still b/p:

Heading to Manhattan at dawn tomorrow. Anybody know of anything in the wild art/performance department happening Saturday or Sunday?
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:18pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Thanks for the gif from my beloved borough! Time to help build a space!
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:19pm Uncle Michael:

Is that where the Wonder Wheel is/was?
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:20pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Oh Yeah!!! Coney Island...Baby!
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:20pm Dominick:

UM, Does the audio tinkering you did have anything to do with everything being mono?
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:21pm Uncle Michael:

Ummm...should not be...not in mono in my ears!
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:22pm listener james from westwood:

dusty!!
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:23pm Dominick:

Nothing wrong with mono
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:24pm KevinfromBayRidge:

@still b/p- Walk around lower e/s & you shall find something. And then you can always dodge Citi-bikes!
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:25pm Uncle Michael:

It is in mono! Crap! Man...I screwed this up!
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:27pm Uncle Michael:

I can't get audio to the streamer.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:28pm listener james from westwood:

you just have to worry about a hyper-sensitive spleen for a few weeks after.
wait, which mono are we talking about?
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:29pm Uncle Michael:

you're not hearing my show...it's the stream
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:29pm Uncle Michael:

I'm rebooting a computer...sorry, everyone.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:30pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Coming in fine, now
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:30pm Alex In Illinois:

Something like that happened to Doug's show for a few minutes last week.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:30pm Uncle Michael:

Not possible, Kevin. It's the drummer stream.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:32pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Well then..You must be the voices in my head!
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:32pm listener james from westwood:

heard you just there, UM!
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:32pm KevinfromBayRidge:

just got a hiccup
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:33pm Dominick:

Hi there. Stereophonic action engaged
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:33pm Uncle Michael:

Tinkerbell?
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:34pm Dominick:

Yep
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:34pm Uncle Michael:

Whew.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:35pm Alex In Illinois:

I think Kevin's player might have had a lot of data buffered, so he was still hearing you while others weren't. Anyway, were are hearing Tinkerbell now.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:36pm Uncle Michael:

I should have left mono alone.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:36pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Bumps, Hiccups & Stutters.. You still have a F-ing great show! FYI-using pop-up.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:38pm Dominick:

Sorry to have caused alarm. Rock on!
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 1:38pm Uncle Michael:

Thank you Kevin. Makes me feel better!
  Fri. 10/11/13 1:59pm Jack:

One of my pet obsessions, FOW! Great band!
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 2:00pm Uncle Michael:

Not your fault, Dominick. I made a mistake...not you.

I think the next set needs to rock hard.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 2:00pm Uncle Michael:

Mine too, Jack.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 2:01pm Dominick:

Mono schmono, the music has been great all day.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 2:03pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks, man. It was silly of me...like grabbing the handle of a hot pan.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 2:25pm Uncle Michael:

Maybe they thought Sabbath's lawyers wouldn't notice.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 2:26pm Alex In Illinois:

There is some sort of parody-song loophole. I am not making that up!
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 2:26pm listener james from westwood:

they had diplo-metal immunity.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 2:28pm Uncle Michael:

I guess I'm just being...paranoid.

Wow, Ray Stevens really stuck it to The Man, huh?
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 2:37pm Dominick:

Best Billy Joel song ever
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 2:38pm Uncle Michael:

Hell yes.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 2:44pm Parq:

Dominick, as a long-time Ray Stevens fan, I'm stung.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 2:47pm Uncle Michael:

I think I meant to use this for a music bed. Ever have one of those shows?
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 2:49pm Uncle Michael:

Hola, Parq.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 2:51pm Parq:

Joining you for the last reel, Unka Mike. Which makes this old-movie-type music all the more apt.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 2:51pm Dominick:

Parq, I believe Mr Joel recognized the brilliance of Mr. Businessman and decided to parlay it into a career. At the time (1968), Mr. Joel was in the more than jaw dropping Attila. Mr. Stevens, on the other hand wrote more than one great song, Mr. Businessman included.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 2:57pm Uncle Michael:

There's a lot of popcorn in the seats, Parq. Dig on in.
Avatar Fri. 10/11/13 3:00pm Uncle Michael:
