Welcome Wex!

yes,,, now grandmas a total stranger since she got her face caught in the record changer
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 1:09pm Gaylord Fields:

That song was a perfect illustration of the theory I've advanced to Rex that songs with the word "Beatle" in the title have a better than average tendency to be great (and often in a distintively un-Beatle-like way).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 1:13pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Afternoon, Fools!
Gaylord, does this apply to "Beetle" as well?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 1:13pm fred:

@Gaylord: an interesting theory, new to me so I'll keep an eye out for it. The next track and Rex generally made me wonder whether that kind of reverb-heavy trailers could have influenced Suicide (the band, not the act)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 1:15pm Gaylord Fields:

@Greg from Bloomfield: Most definitely so.
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 1:15pm Richie:

Thanks again for last week's broadcast...it was fantastic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 1:19pm ChrisB.:

Love the Liz Renay backstory. Will look for her Adam-12 appearance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 1:21pm Tony in Durham NC:

In honor of Liz's first 2,000 men I'm still working on my first 2,000 Fool's Paradise shows. Shall we hear some of ye olde bumpe and grinde?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 1:26pm Tony in Durham NC:

I have a promo square white record from ZWOL. Those were the days.

Saturday morning reverb (my head that is)

Oooh. I think you may go to Hell for this one. See ya there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 1:33pm Parq:

I just mentioned to Mrs Parq that Rex has enough grotequely stereotypical "Chinese" novelty records to do a marathon premium. She enthusiastically endorsed the idea.
  Sat. 1/25/14 1:33pm Brez:

"Chinese Rock And Roll" -- truly one of the weirdest we've heard here on Fool's Paradise!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 1:35pm jmd:

Agreed w/ Mrs Parq. Please!
  Sat. 1/25/14 1:35pm Brez:

Hey, Parq, we've been through this before. Rex refers those of us into grotesquely stereotypical "Chinese" novelty records to Norton's collections of same.
  Sat. 1/25/14 1:35pm Sing Sing:

Records should ALL be tasteless...if they tasted good thayd all be eaten by now !
  Sat. 1/25/14 1:36pm Brez:


Mmm, where can I get go-go boots like Liz Renay's?!?!
  Sat. 1/25/14 1:37pm Brez:

Rex, I think you need to address the GROUNDSWELL of DEMAND for you to do a Chop Suey Rock premium...
  Sat. 1/25/14 1:43pm Muffy St. Jacques:

just play fifteen minuets of The's and your thirst for fried sushi rock will be thrilled
  Sat. 1/25/14 1:46pm Sing Sing:

Mattie sound like Snaggy's chick
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 1:50pm Parq:

I knew a Liz Ronay once. She was a cute blonde, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 1:51pm Parq:

Just read Miss Renay's Wikipedia page -- jeez, what a checkered story!
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 1:53pm Richie:

"Dusty Uterus" ...NOT a good stripper name.
  Sat. 1/25/14 1:57pm Sing Sing:

Ernestine Schmidlap...ALSO not a good stripper name
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 2:09pm Greg from Bloomfield:

I'm still pulling for a Mambo/Cha-Cha comp!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 2:14pm Mailman Tom:

Rex, when will you be posting your list of favorite movies and TV shows?
  Sat. 1/25/14 2:14pm Muffy St. Jacques:

Roxcella and her Super Sport Coupe
  Sat. 1/25/14 2:15pm hazmania:

Highly recommend Liz Renay's autobiography My Face For The World To See
  Sat. 1/25/14 2:25pm mike east:

The porter at my work walks around all day shouting "bird dog!" And "come in, bird dog!" And other variants. Also calls other people bird dog sometimes
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/25/14 2:34pm Tony in Durham NC:

Did I say how great last week's show was? I did? Oh.
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 2:36pm Reeshard:

A shame that Liz Renay never got around to the sequel. Her title: 'My Ass For The World To Kiss.'
  Sat. 1/25/14 2:50pm Muffy St. Jacques:

i found my picture in the dollar bin at the dollar store next to the nickel beers

Fleets don't fail me now !

And now Todd-O-Phonic Todd -- this is simply too much excitement for one Saturday afternoon! Hey, thanx for another fab show, Rex!!
Avatar Sat. 1/25/14 2:57pm whipped beer fat:

Thanks for the wild ride Rex.

The Phantom Surfers do pretty good, for that matter.
