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.

We're still waiting for the cookies. You might want to clear your cache and milk cups.

Hello Uncle.

@ndbob did you hear Iggy introduce the programme on William Burroughs?
Avatar Fri. 5/30/14 12:23pm ndbob:

nope Brian - is it still archived? a lot of the specials stay up for a while

CS&N has reached DBM&T.
Avatar Fri. 5/30/14 1:10pm Uncle Michael:

fair point, Brian!
  Fri. 5/30/14 1:11pm Dean:

It takes guts to consume guts, but I'm working on the less icky, less exotic Andouille. That said, the price of fresh sausage in these parts has soared. (Flying sausage?) It's getting to the point that I can't afford to eat offal.
Avatar Fri. 5/30/14 1:14pm Brian in UK:

French & Chinese will eat most things.

I have tried making my own sausages, not sure whether to use the shoulder or leg of pig. Shoulder has more fat. It is fun putting them in the casings!
  Fri. 5/30/14 1:16pm Dean:

@BrianUK, I'd love to make my own sausage (not to mention my own beer and gin). Also, my own laws.

Not a Chelsea but I know the bluddy words.

I could play Wipeout!
  Fri. 5/30/14 1:20pm Dean:

I'm confused. Was Bon Scott on the Chelsea team before AC/DC?

What's nuts...is that it's been played on the FMU broadcast air...several times.

Doug's played it too, I see.

@Dean - there was a piece on NPR this morning that said pretty much exactly that Handclapping Song is the same as Happy. Science proved it.

I am not. Sorry.
  Fri. 5/30/14 2:46pm Listener John from NJ who lives in NJ:

Lots of songs about Caroline . . . Do you suppose that all these songs are the reason that record company decided to call itself Caroline Records? And wasn't there a UK station (or a UK pirate station) called Radio Caroline?
Avatar Fri. 5/30/14 2:47pm still b/p:

No, no, omission GOOD.
Avatar Fri. 5/30/14 2:47pm Uncle Michael:

Radio Caroline was named after Caroline Kennedy.

Why songs about "Caroline" . . . 3 syllables. I hear the stress as < ' - - > . . . could that be why?

Caroline Says is great. I shoulda...

@LJFNJWLINJ, That would be a dactyl. Other female names that scan dactyl? Margaret and Eleanor come to mind. Neither trips off the tongue quite as elegantly as Caroline.

Avatar Wed. 6/4/14 1:39am Droll:

Yes & KC in one show? I guess you don't want an over-the-air show... Of course prog is best, but you'll never be allowed to do that on FM. That KC performance is just about the pinnacle of Rock Music, FWIW. Bands used to know how to write and play like that... it was a different era.

Speaking of musicianship, the drumming on The Meters song was ridiculous.

Daddy could swear, I declare! Followed by a Jackie Wilson song with swears! I always cringe when I hear swears on FMU, which is funny because I swear a lot and don't notice. Creepy how well we're trained for that nonsense, even as listeners.

This is a perfectly adequate show. I really ought to try catching it live some day... Good archive fodder, though!

One complaint: All the songs seem to cue up off-by-one (says it's playing the previous song)
