This string of jerks makes me want to get a diamond so big that I’d puke.

Good Evening to all!

The Meatwad avatar is very cool.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 9:20pm JakeGould:

This playlist this week is really making me smile. Big achievement. Great work!
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 9:23pm Fuzzy:

Thanks, Uncle -- I like it very much as well!

Professor Irwin Corey, The World's Foremost Authority! That's it! I knew Bingo always reminded me of someone......!

I think the Applejacks are backing Chubby on this track.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 9:26pm JakeGould:

Fuzzy, this ¯\_(ツ)¯\_¯\_(ツ)¯\_¯\_(ツ)¯\_
equals “Keep on Truckin’” to me. Awesome!
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 9:28pm Fuzzy:

I hadn't made the "Keep On Truckin'" connection -- good one!
  Thu. 7/31/14 9:28pm P-90:

Why, it IS a "Keep on Truckincon"! Far Out, Man!
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 9:28pm Uncle Michael:

My first exposure to the Professor was the film Car Wash.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 9:28pm Uncle Michael:

maybe the Carson show, come to think of it...
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 9:29pm Fuzzy:

More Truckin' than dancing I think...gotta get me one of those animated gifamajigs!
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 9:30pm Uncle Michael:

livin' on reds, vitamin C and cocaine...
  Thu. 7/31/14 9:32pm P-90:

Bet you saw him at least a few times before Car Wash, he was a talk show mainstay throughout the 60's. Same comedic generation as Mort Sahl, Pat Paulson, the Young George Carlin...
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 9:32pm Fuzzy:

Puffin' stuff too!

See above, P-90.

Lee Dorsey > classic but still waiting for a twofer of Leo Gorcey (*sigh*)
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 9:37pm Uncle Michael:

Leo and Hunts, together again...at last.

"Kicks," the answer song to "magic carpet ride" 2 years before steppenwolf recorded it.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 9:45pm Uncle Michael:

I saw Spazz head boppin' to ? on Youtube today.
  Thu. 7/31/14 9:46pm P-90:

@Puffinstuff Dude: Got a link or a key search term for that?
  Thu. 7/31/14 9:49pm P-90:

...seeing lots of Spazz but no Spazz + ? ....
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 9:52pm Uncle Michael:

Let me find it. (Sorry, Dave.)

Thanks! Great clip! I love the monochrome red light, and how close he is to the audience, it's like an old fashioned LP cover in motion!
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 10:02pm Uncle Michael:

I don't think he could have gotten farther away if he wanted to.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 10:07pm pacific standard simon:

Boogie chillun!
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 10:08pm Fuzzy:

Cool clip -- too bad they didn't get the whole song!
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 10:12pm Parq:

The Collins Kids -- more alumni of the Ponderosa Stomp Lincoln Center shows. And Lori Collins has been on my Celeb Crush list ever since.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 10:14pm Uncle Michael:

I love that Lorrie was basically Ricky Nelson's first girlfriend.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 10:18pm Uncle Michael:

Buddy Love was such a dick.
  Thu. 7/31/14 10:21pm P-90:

I was always fascinated by the deeply sadistic pleasure Jerry seems to get from playing Buddy as a total dick.

@Parq: Goldmine of Lorrie Collins clips gathered here:

Buddy was his dig at Dean.
  Thu. 7/31/14 10:25pm P-90:

I always thought there definitely was some Sinatra in there too--
Jerry always said he was a composite
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 10:31pm Uncle Michael:

I'll sort of buy that...except for the idea that anyone would have been brave or foolish enough to take shots at Frank.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 10:31pm pacific standard simon:

Lotta Jerry in that guy, too.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 10:33pm Uncle Michael:

Now that I can agree with, whole-heartely.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 10:33pm pacific standard simon:

The new version of Ms. Marvel (comic book) is based in Jersey City. Still waiting for a WFMU reference.
  Thu. 7/31/14 10:37pm P-90:

@pss: Ms Marvel? No shit?

@Parq: Wow! How 'bout that Lorrie Collins?! She has an absolutely FABULOUS pair of er, vocal cords...
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 10:44pm pacific standard simon:

Yeah. She's a high school kid from some kind of Islamic ethnic background, and she has a speech in #5 about not messing with Jersey City. Pretty good, actually.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 10:49pm JakeGould:

PSSimon, you mean a mainstream comic book would have a lady with bazungas the size of whoozits? GET OUT!
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 10:52pm pacific standard simon:

Minimal bazungas, sorry. And legs covered because, y'know, Islam.
  Thu. 7/31/14 10:52pm P-90:

@JakeG: Marvel comics were always loaded with bodacious women (Mary Jane Watson, etc. etc.) and did you ever actually look at Wonder Woman's figure?
  Thu. 7/31/14 10:55pm P-90:

I imagine the artist lives/lived in JC and draws the city accurately from life. Cool that they're being "diverse" and "inclusive"-- girl heroes, Muslims, Jersey City...
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 10:55pm JakeGould:

@P-90 Who is disagreeing?
  Thu. 7/31/14 10:56pm P-90:

@Jake Sorry, didn't catch the sarcasm at first...sleep-deprived as usual
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 10:57pm JakeGould:

P-90: It’s cool. Was stunningly burned out last night from an amazingly B.S. day at work. Cool now. It passes. Cool.
Avatar Thu. 7/31/14 10:57pm ken in denver:

Spazz, rockin' the Floyd! Woo hoo!
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 10:59pm pacific standard simon:

You can dig the music and pretend that you're burned out coming down from an LSD trip.
  Thu. 7/31/14 11:00pm bob:

Why don't we sing this song together? Satanic Majesties Request in my opinion the best album the Stones did from one end to the other.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:00pm Uncle Michael:

pretend?
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:01pm pacific standard simon:

Good point. I'm having a flash back, just like Joe Friday said I would. I'm hearing Monkees....
  Thu. 7/31/14 11:02pm Brian c:

I'm coming in for a landing, for sure
  Thu. 7/31/14 11:02pm will:

Dave's in a psychedelic mood and I can dig it. Thanks for playing Carole King.
  Thu. 7/31/14 11:02pm P-90:

Dragnet 1969: it was really campy and we laughed at it THEN.
40+ years later, can't get enough of those sound bites.
Avatar Thu. 7/31/14 11:03pm ken in denver:

Nice color scheme tonight, btw.
  Thu. 7/31/14 11:03pm Brian c:

Loving the music tonight Dave, thank you
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:03pm pacific standard simon:

If he plays The Bee Gees' "Holiday" then I'm in big trouble -- can't rely on my own mind!
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:04pm Uncle Michael:

It's real, ken? I blamed it on the blotter.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:04pm Fuzzy:

I see anthropomorphic cats in pink dresses! They have no mouths! I must scream! But alas, I am only a meatball, and can do nothing but assume the shape of an igloo. Or a hot-dog, maybe...
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:04pm Uncle Michael:

Simon, your brain may no longer be the boss.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:07pm Uncle Michael:

War Child jumped the shark for me with Tull.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:07pm pacific standard simon:

Dave, ask Dave (Mandl) -- he'll help ya.
  Thu. 7/31/14 11:08pm P-90:

""Love Beach" killed it for more than a few folks. Party over, boom.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:10pm pacific standard simon:

@Fuzzy - subtext, this HK pic is from a German appearance, and she's giving the salute! Beyond weird.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:10pm Uncle Michael:

DAVE NEMO DROP. OMG!!
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:13pm Uncle Michael:

I'm just amazed...Dave Nemo on 'FMU. That's so great.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:14pm Fuzzy:

@PSS: No way! Gotta be doing a QE2 wave or something (a subtle twist o' the wrist!)
  Thu. 7/31/14 11:14pm P-90:

"Heavy Horses" and that one after it were TOTAL stoner music. And pretty good stoner music, much cooler than the "War Child/Minstrel in the Gallery" period. Very proggy.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:15pm pacific standard simon:

The Roches' "We" has been stuck in my head for 2 weeks, since Uncle Michael played it on HIS show.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:16pm Uncle Michael:

Guess which two of them made a record.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:16pm pacific standard simon:

Guess what the other one did instead.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:17pm Fuzzy:

Jack, you're drunk again!
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:17pm Uncle Michael:

It's ok...Neil's driving.
  Thu. 7/31/14 11:18pm P-90:

I'm stumped.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:18pm pacific standard simon:

Bet he was re-enacting scenes from The Lost Weekend by the time he died in Florida.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:20pm pacific standard simon:

You got a song called The Palmetto Bug?
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:22pm pacific standard simon:

Marie Provost -- July 29!

Came for the monkeys. Stayed for the music.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:24pm pacific standard simon:

Jim Reeves -- if he'd signed with the Cardinals, he might still be alive. Or the Cards might have crashed their plane. Win-win.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:29pm pacific standard simon:

I'd pay cash money to hear Dave do this song during the marathon.
  Thu. 7/31/14 11:30pm Carmichael:

Good evening Dave and everyone. Permission to spazz?

You aren't thinking of taking that stuff down, are you?
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:34pm Fuzzy:

Send that guy to Fist City!
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:34pm Uncle Michael:

Nope. It's up for good.
  Thu. 7/31/14 11:40pm Carmichael:

I know where my Beatle boots are! Be right back ...
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:40pm pacific standard simon:

You could put together a show of guys who gave up a career in baseball for pop music. Reeves and Johnny Mathis, for starters.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:41pm JakeGould:

Ending on Pepsi. Started on Coke.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:41pm Uncle Michael:

Mathis skipped the Olympic trials as a track and field athlete for his singing career. I'm not sure I even knew he played baseball.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:43pm Parq:

Normal people don't act that way.
  Thu. 7/31/14 11:46pm Carmichael:

All I wanted was a Pepsi.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:46pm Uncle Michael:

Normal people drink Coke.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:47pm pacific standard simon:

I think I got that off the liner notes on a CD. Might have to broaden the show theme to "sports", 'cause I can't find the CD right now.
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:48pm pacific standard simon:

I ain't normal.
  Thu. 7/31/14 11:50pm Carmichael:

Isn't Pepsi for the ones who think young?
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:50pm Uncle Michael:

What is this version?!
Avatar    Thu. 7/31/14 11:52pm Parq:

@Uncle Michael, 11:46: Looking for the "like" button.
