Today's topic -- Stan Freberg: Threat or menace?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/12/15 5:10pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Threatening menace? Menacing threat? All good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 5:11pm Gaylord Fields:

@Ken From Hyde Park: That is the correct answer.

...this program *never* makes me ask 'So What?'...
  Sun. 4/12/15 5:15pm Tommy:

That's what I'm talking about
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 5:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...or any other thremacing premise...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 5:16pm Gaylord Fields:

@Revolution Rabbit Nov63: Perhaps "So who?" or "So how?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 5:16pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...oh yeah those...
Avatar Sun. 4/12/15 5:17pm fleep:

Freberg got paid to make ads that lampooned advertising itself. He was subversive in many directions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 5:19pm Gaylord Fields:

@fleep: The phrase "biting the hand that feeds him" should be retired in his honor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 5:20pm Gaylord Fields:

Freberg made his disdain for the tricks of advertising abundantly clear in his comedy, and then he somehow got clients to pay him to expose these tricks in service of their products.

Hi, Gaylord, I'm digging today's jazzy vibes
Avatar Sun. 4/12/15 5:22pm Hugh:

Lou is cool enough as it is but he sometimes hangs at my local jazz spot, Smoke. Hi Gaylord!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 5:22pm Gaylord Fields:

@doca: Thanks, brother! I'm in a jazzy mood today, it seems.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 5:24pm Gaylord Fields:

@Hugh: Good to hear from you! Thanks for the Lou D. update.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 5:25pm doca:

Gaylord Fields Quintet, "In a Jazzy Mood" (Columbia Records, 1958), Which instrument do you play, Gaylord?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 5:26pm Gaylord Fields:

@doca: To quote John Lennon, I play the fool.
  Sun. 4/12/15 5:28pm P-90:

Nice set, DJ Gaylord. And greetings tio all the Gaylordians and Frebergomeisters in attendance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 5:29pm Gaylord Fields:

@P-90: Thanks for the felicitous salutations!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 5:30pm doca:

@Gaylord: That's the easiest thing to play
  Sun. 4/12/15 5:33pm P-90:

Some of these losses just hurt more than others somehow, and I'm still reeling from the news about Freberg. I guess one develops extra-strong feelings of connection to particular cultural figures.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 5:34pm Gaylord Fields:

@P-90: This one is affecting me more than I would have expected. I've been a fan since childhood, and he subverted my worldview as much as Mad magazine, etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 5:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...was just watching some of Lennon's Foolishness other day: www.youtube.com... ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 5:44pm Gaylord Fields:

Let's show some love for Jess Roden, a criminally unheralded vocalist.
  Sun. 4/12/15 5:53pm sugarwolf:

Hello hello no time to comment today.... I actually had work!!!
  Sun. 4/12/15 5:53pm sugarwolf:

I earned enough to pay for my record fair purchases :)
Avatar Sun. 4/12/15 5:56pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Gorkys track reminded me a bit of Neutral Milk Hotel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 5:56pm Gaylord Fields:

Hello and goodbye, @sugarwolf!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 5:56pm Gaylord Fields:

@Kenzo: Oh, I totally hear that.
  Sun. 4/12/15 6:03pm V Priceless:

Hey Gaylord! Fab show, as usual! Thanks!
  Sun. 4/12/15 6:07pm P-90:

Paul Frees: Boris Badunov, Pop 'n' Fresh, and at his lowest point, "John" and "Paul" on the US cartoon "The Beatles" show...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:07pm Gaylord Fields:

Thanks, @V Priceless!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:09pm Gaylord Fields:

@P-90: Actually, John and George. Paul & Ringo were by Lance Percival, who did a somewhat better job, which is damning with faint praise.
  Sun. 4/12/15 6:10pm P-90:

Ha ha, thanks! A second after I posted I thought: wait, was it Paul or George?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:12pm Gaylord Fields:

On the other hand, Percival (who died just a few months ago) acquitted himself nicely as "Old Fred" in Yellow Submarine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:12pm Gaylord Fields:

That was odd.. I left Olatunji going live. Sorry,
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:13pm Gaylord Fields:

So I say why not just start the song over?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:14pm JakeGould:

Hello!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:14pm Gaylord Fields:

Hello, @JakeGould!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:16pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- for 'Keeping Up Appearances' fans:'Onslo' was Paul's voice in YellowSub...which I can't quite (Sub word) fathom...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:17pm JakeGould:

Stan Freverg? Freberg I say.
  Sun. 4/12/15 6:20pm P-90:

"Stan Freverg"- the "Danish Stan Freberg"?
Avatar Sun. 4/12/15 6:20pm glenn:

hello, fields trippers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:22pm Gaylord Fields:

@Revolution Rabbit Nov63: Which is why his Paul voice is better than Lance Percival's, as Geoffrey Hughes was a genuine working-class Liverpudlian, like McCartney.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:27pm Gaylord Fields:

@glenn: I like that appellation!
Avatar Sun. 4/12/15 6:28pm glenn:

this vashti must be newish, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:28pm Gaylord Fields:

@glenn: Yes, it came out just a few months ago.
Avatar Sun. 4/12/15 6:29pm glenn:

i was always disappointed that school field trips never went to, you know, fields.
Avatar Sun. 4/12/15 6:30pm glenn:

although i do recall going on one to a swamp.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:40pm JakeGould:

@glenn: One field trip I had in elementary school was to the boiler room. We all got to see how the boiler room worked and what the janitor did all day.
Avatar Sun. 4/12/15 6:42pm glenn:

i know our janitor was adept at cleaning up vomit.
  Sun. 4/12/15 6:44pm sugarwolf:

Oh Françoise I still love you even though you seem to have turned into a crank with unfortunate views ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:44pm JakeGould:

He also liked to sit around a desk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:45pm Gaylord Fields:

@sugarwolf: She should stop hanging out with Brigitte Bardot.
  Sun. 4/12/15 6:45pm sugarwolf:

I went on a field trip in HS to the met museum and we saw Harrison Ford looking at the Monets.
  Sun. 4/12/15 6:46pm P-90:

Did Harrison seem to approve?
  Sun. 4/12/15 6:46pm sugarwolf:

And sylvie vartan....
Avatar Sun. 4/12/15 6:47pm dk:

ok, SO this nightjar orchestra song reminds me of 'life in a northern town.' THAT DOESN'T MAKE ME A BAD PERSON, ALL RIGHT?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:47pm Gaylord Fields:

@sugarwolf: Is Sylvie also a Le Pen supporter?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:48pm Gaylord Fields:

@dk: How does liking a popular song make you bad? I'm only being slightly naive in asking.
Avatar Sun. 4/12/15 6:49pm glenn:

which one? the daughter actually seems reasonable compared to her old man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:50pm Gaylord Fields:

@glenn: Kinda like Alessandra Mussolini vis-à-vis Gramps?
  Sun. 4/12/15 6:51pm SeanG:

Hey Na Na Na
Avatar Sun. 4/12/15 6:51pm dk:

it totally doesn't -- but overexposed pop songs are so widely criticized that it's easy for them to become guilty pleasures in spite of their redeeming qualities (and i think 'life in a northern town' has a lot of those.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Flamin' Groovies!
...love this album...drink a bit, & I might ruthlessly murder the whole unfortunate thing...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 6:53pm Gaylord Fields:

@dk: I read you, but I try to operate under the assumption that one person's overexposed is another's unheard. But then, I have the luxury of contextualization within a set of music to make my case.
Avatar Sun. 4/12/15 6:54pm glenn:

at least they admit they're fascists, unlike most right wing types.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 4/12/15 6:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The Groovie Ghoulies will have to wait for another show.
  Sun. 4/12/15 6:57pm mr c:

Francoise Hardy, Vashti Bunyan, Betty Carter, Orchestra Harlow...all good with Gaylord on Sunday..
Avatar Sun. 4/12/15 6:59pm dk:

i actually envy the person for whomhearing 'life in a northern town' is a fresh experience.
  Sun. 4/12/15 6:59pm P-90:

Thanks, DJ Gaylord, Stan Freberg, Flamin' Groovies, Groovy Ghoulies, and of course, "Gramps" Mussolini!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/12/15 7:01pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...hard not to relate to 'northern towns' up here...
- Thx GF !!
