I worked with a guy whose last name was Bontemps. Ironically, he was always glum.
Avatar    Thu. 3/13/14 2:10pm Matt F:

Recently had the "what if he had lived" convo about Buddy Holly with Dave the Spazz. topics: would he have had a mustache? would he have been in the traveling wilburys?
Avatar    Thu. 3/13/14 2:11pm Uncle Michael:

I have a friend that's sure James Dean would have appeared on The Love Boat.
Avatar Thu. 3/13/14 2:12pm Holly in NC:

Hello!
Avatar Thu. 3/13/14 2:12pm MattBelow:

Part of me feels Buddy would've went the way of Johnny Burnette. But I could be wrong! The other part that he could've had a career like the Everly's and championed by the Brits and Sunset Strip scenes.
Avatar Thu. 3/13/14 2:12pm glenn:

buddy holly would have been jimi hendrix before jimi hendrix. or something.

Can the next one start with a Z?
Avatar Thu. 3/13/14 2:17pm Holly in NC:

Alternate universe thought - any way that Buddy would have ended up playing *for* Waylon?
Avatar Thu. 3/13/14 2:17pm glenn:

he's lightnin' VERY slim by now.
Avatar    Thu. 3/13/14 2:18pm Matt F:

Whoa! Andy, I didn't know that but I just happen to have a Lightnin' Slim record picked out for today's show! Probly in the last set.
Avatar    Thu. 3/13/14 2:19pm Matt F:

Another theory is that Buddy would have been Doug Sahm before Doug Sahm.
Avatar    Thu. 3/13/14 2:22pm Uncle Michael:

A live version of The Gift kind of blows my tiny mind.
Avatar Thu. 3/13/14 2:23pm Holly in NC:

Oh man, I can't imagine anyone outDouging Doug Sahm.
Avatar    Thu. 3/13/14 2:24pm Uncle Michael:

Buddy might have spent the '60s making records with Billy Sherrill.
Avatar    Thu. 3/13/14 2:26pm Uncle Michael:

Chet Atkins might have gotten his mitts on him too.
  Thu. 3/13/14 2:27pm drr:

Is this "The Gift" strictly instrumental, or am I short a speaker?
Avatar Thu. 3/13/14 2:29pm northguineahills:

Whoops, fell through the roof. I guess I'm stuck on the GTDS stream (stream automatically switched).
Avatar Thu. 3/13/14 2:30pm Holly in NC:

Egads, Billy Sherrill. Soo much to answer for. Damn strings (shudder)

It's Candi Staton's birthday today....just sayin'...

drr- speakers are fine. No Child's Xmas in Wales-style narration on that version.
  Thu. 3/13/14 2:37pm drr:

Little known fact, "The Gift" was called "The Hobbit" before the Tolkien estate intervened. It was composed for a Pickwick-produced educational filmstrip.

March 13th: On this Day (select)

1960, Johnny Preston was at No.1 on the UK singles chart with 'Running Bear', also No.1 in the US.

1965, Eric Clapton quit The Yardbirds due to musical differences with the other band members.

1966, Rod Stewart left the British blues band Steampacket to work as a solo artist.

1966, Pink Floyd appeared for the first time at The Marquee in Wardour Street, London, England.

1977, Iggy Pop and David Bowie kicked off a North American tour at Le Plateau Theatre, Montreal, Canada with Blondie as the opening act.

2006, The Sex Pistols refused to attend their own induction into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. . Blondie, Herb Alpert and Black Sabbath were all inducted but the Pistols posted a handwritten note on their website, calling the institution "urine in wine", adding "We're not your monkeys, we're not coming. You're not paying attention".

Hey Eurovision Song Contest 1967 Sandie Shaw.

You know, I'm not waiting for that Johnny Preston revival.
Avatar    Thu. 3/13/14 2:43pm Matt F:

Brian- couldn't stomach the Sandie Shaw version today, so I went with this for my soon-to-be-revealed gimmick...
Avatar Thu. 3/13/14 2:44pm Holly in NC:

I used to play Running Bear over & over late night at the local Waffle House.
Avatar    Thu. 3/13/14 2:45pm Brian in UK:

Matt you sure made the right choice.
Her gimmick was singing without shoes. Did not work.
Avatar    Thu. 3/13/14 2:45pm Matt F:

George Jones does a great Running Bear.
  Thu. 3/13/14 2:46pm Doug Schulkind:

Penn and Oldham magnificence!
  Thu. 3/13/14 2:47pm drr:

Matt: that's nothing! The one that gets me is how Reed and Cale hired LaMonte Young to do some arranging, just as a favor, not even a real recording date, but the lead sheets survived and were the basis for the Trammps' "Disco Inferno".
Avatar    Thu. 3/13/14 2:48pm Matt F:

Wow!

Buyer might be some time a waitin' for delivery on those.
Avatar Thu. 3/13/14 3:18pm Holly in NC:

Have y'all seen the currently viral tortoise sex video? It may actually be considered pornographic by some, & I dare say it's likely nsfw. The ending is just....

Catfish knee is a condition, much like flounder foot.

DUKEPARK] Missing Hipster Poodle boy....
To DUKEPARK@yahoogroups.com
Today at 3:43 PM

My black and white poodle boy Algonquin has somehow gotten away and is (hopefully) roaming the neighborhood. If you've seen him (he's a small black and white poodle with a mohawk and a goatee) please (PLEASE PLEASE!) email us to come and get him or return him to us at 2604 N. Roxboro Street. He just had dental surgery on Wednesday and still needs his antibiotics and pain killers.

A hipster neighborhood you live in, indeed, Holly.

Well that was good. Wonder what's next.

I'll send Luna out on a search. Being hopped up on antibiotics and painkillers, she can personally relate.

@Doug Schulkind Doug you'd better get yourself checked. I'm sure tons of people have slept with that Hank Box. All kidding aside, I remember, years ago franticaly searching for "On the Banks of the Old Pontchrtrain" after hearing it on your show. Along with a great stranded in New Orleans story.
