OK, now I'm hungry. Thanks, Gary.

oooooh. bad puns and the show hasn't even started.
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 5:56pm Doug Schulkind:

That wasn't very funny.

evening Doug and everyone!

Hi Doug and, I'm assuming, Thing.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/10/15 6:03pm Carmichael:

What about hits that were the B-side? Are you gonna flip them too?
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:04pm Doug Schulkind & Thing:

Hi and howdy, Carmichael and holland oats!
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:04pm Doug Schulkind:

If I played a 2-part Charlie Parker tune, would I be flipping the Bird?

howdy Doug,Drummers,Things,Miss Things,others.
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:07pm Doug Schulkind:

Nice to see ya, coelacanth!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/10/15 6:08pm coelacanth:

shtt you can see me? okay,i'm sitting up straight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/10/15 6:08pm Carmichael:

His Master's Hand.
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:09pm Doug Schulkind:

Because I didn't want to break up any A Side/B Side pairings, today's show will be only two and not the customary three sets.
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:09pm Doug Schulkind:

No worries, coelacanth. You wore clean britches today!
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:10pm Doug Schulkind:

Interesting personal story about this Alabama Bus tune here:
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/10/15 6:11pm Carmichael:

I heard on this morning's news that the Sharp Smart TV has a software bug where other TV watchers can hear your conversations around the ol' idiot box. Seriously.
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:12pm ndbob:

good one here Doug!
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:14pm Doug Schulkind:

I could do a whole show of songs about buses, ndbob. This would be the jewel in that particular crown.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/10/15 6:18pm coelacanth:

clean,so far.

The "Scatman Crothers Discography" caught my eye on the issue of Blues & Rhythm. Scatman Crothers?! The guy who showed up on sitcoms and game shows in the '70s? Turns out he did an album with Joe Williams. My mom used to wait tables at a restaurant in Whittier, CA, in the '70s. One of her regulars was Scatman.
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:21pm Doug Schulkind:

I have a whole record of Scatman numbers. I have his "Golly Zonk" right here! (digitally speaking)
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:21pm ndbob:

@Dean Scatman made some good R and B singles too
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:22pm Doug Schulkind:

Whoever split this performance into two separate parts is going (or has already gone) straight to Hell.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/10/15 6:24pm Carmichael:

That's why they called him "The Scat Man". By the time he was on Sanford & Son, he was way past his prime.
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:24pm Gary:

Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:24pm Flash Strap:

Scatman drummed for Slim Gaillard for a while too. There's some awesome footage of that combo somewhere on youtube. Slim's one of the few cats that could be in a band with the Scatman and be the cooler number (and arguably more deserving of the name Scatman, but whatever).
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:25pm Flash Strap:

also howdy yall
  Tue. 2/10/15 6:26pm Dean:

@Doug, ndbob & Carmichael: Raised as I was on the bland fare of talk shows during that time, I would never have learned otherwise. Ironically, compared to the junk on TV nowadays, Mike Douglas seemed pretty cool, but only relatively speaking.
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:26pm ndbob:

Heya Flash!
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:27pm Doug Schulkind:

@Flash Strap!
Boy, I would've loved to have been Scatman and Slim's pot supplier. I would be retired by now.
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:27pm ndbob:

Mike sure had some interesting guests
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/10/15 6:27pm Santos L Halper:

This is epic. Sure it's not pts 1,2,3,& 4?

@Santos L Halper
Well said.
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:31pm Flash Strap:

I would swim the frozen seas just to roast a bone with those two and lose my mind as Slim started playing piano with the backs of his hands. Though if Bam Brown were on the scene too I think I'd just die of joy
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:32pm Doug Schulkind:

Did you say a burger? Now I'm REALLY hungry.
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:33pm Doug Schulkind:

@Flash Strap
How exotic!

Now I'm trying to remember the records labeled sides 1 and A...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/10/15 6:39pm Carmichael:

I remember a Cat Stevens album labeled "This" and "That".
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:40pm Doug Schulkind:

This is horribly embarrassing, but... full disclosure:
I just played part 2 BEFORE part 1.

The shame.
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:43pm Gary:

, man. Ah
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:44pm Doug Schulkind:

I read the Dr. Seuss book: The Cat and the That.
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:45pm Doug Schulkind:

The saxophonist on this cut is Clarence Clemons!
Avatar Tue. 2/10/15 6:47pm Doug Schulkind:

You may have heard of Saskwatch, but Jesse Kaminsky, host of GTDR's Kaminsky Kamoutsky, is known around these parts as Sasklisten! To hear Jesse's great show, keep your mouse right where it is. Playlist page here:

Show starts in 13 minutes.

Seems like you've played only half as many tunes today as usual.
