Good afternoon, Rex, James and Derek.

Atlanta is blowing up with WFMU listeners.

hay! happy Saturday Rex & all!
Avatar    Sat. 8/29/15 1:33pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

Rex that was kind of a downer. Why can't you play happy music about pizza?
Avatar    Sat. 8/29/15 1:35pm Joe non Papa:

Always surprised when Rex references a book.
Avatar Sat. 8/29/15 1:37pm BEAVO:

another twistd country song is Wanda Jackson's 'Box It Came In'

Asian chick looks familiar.

One of Chuck's greasiest. Bravo!
Avatar Sat. 8/29/15 1:40pm Reeshard:

Yvonne Craig on the Merv Griffin Show! I'm guessing that Merv's co-host, future fish'n'chip king Arthur Treacher was just beyond the left edge of the photo...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/29/15 1:41pm Gaylord Fields:

And Yvonne Craig was briefly married to Jimmy "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" during the time he played goofy, gawky teen neighbor Howard on Bachelor Father.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/29/15 1:43pm Gaylord Fields:

Jimmy Boyd, that is.
  Sat. 8/29/15 1:49pm cheri:

hey Gaylord! I met Yvonne craig one time
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 8/29/15 1:49pm Iikka from Helsinki:

RIP Yvonne Craig. Here's a funny story about her: www.newsfromme.com...
Avatar    Sat. 8/29/15 1:49pm Listener Jumpy:

Rex puts the "mental" in "instrumental."
  Sat. 8/29/15 1:50pm cheri:

Yvonne was very sweet!
  Sat. 8/29/15 1:51pm P-90:

So sad, Yvonne was still so young...
@BEAVO: the young lady on Yvonne's right who "looks familiar" might be Yvonne Elliman of "jesus Christ Superstar" fame. I could be wrong about that, but if so, it was kind of an "Yvonne theme" show on Merv that particular night...
     Sat. 8/29/15 1:55pm David in ATL from NJ:

That is one great smile/laugh!
Avatar    Sat. 8/29/15 1:55pm Listener Jumpy:

I just had to send a link to Rosco Gordon's "Booted" to a pal who broke his heel.
  Sat. 8/29/15 1:59pm P-90:

The interwebs say this "Merv" was September 15, 1967, and the episode is NOT on DVD. Someday, maybe all of this stuff will be digitized and available to the curious. And fixated.
Avatar Sat. 8/29/15 2:04pm BEAVO:

That was way before JCSS I think she's an actress not Elliman
  Sat. 8/29/15 2:04pm pottybear:

Peter Marshall: Lana Turner recently said, “I won’t do it because I haven’t stopped living my life by a long shot.” What won’t she do?

Paul Lynde: The Merv Griffin show.
Avatar    Sat. 8/29/15 2:06pm Listener Jumpy:

It could be Elliman. She was around a long time. I seem to watching the Grammys the year she won "Best New Something."
Avatar Sat. 8/29/15 2:09pm BEAVO:

It's Reiko Douglas, wife of writer Jack Douglas.
Avatar    Sat. 8/29/15 2:16pm Mailman Tom:

Didn't Merv Griffin cut a horror novelty record?
  Sat. 8/29/15 2:18pm P-90:

Yes, it's Reiko, they had a corny, unfunny act that was largely based on making fun of Reiko's limited English skills. And yes, in 1967, definitely pre-JCS.
Avatar    Sat. 8/29/15 2:18pm Listener Jumpy:

Rex said he had a hard time telling Mike Douglas from Merv Griffin. Mike had an afternoon show, Merv had an evening show.
  Sat. 8/29/15 2:19pm ?:

If I were a weenie, I'd want to be a green weenie!
  Sat. 8/29/15 2:22pm P-90:

I'd be a Soylent Green Weenie
  Sat. 8/29/15 2:28pm flump:

ooh...I can jilla jalla jellyfish to this one!
  Sat. 8/29/15 2:34pm P-90:

and RIP Melody Patterson, Wrangler Jane on "F Troop." She was only 66. And I still haven't gotten over Stan Freberg, Chris Lee, and Patrick Macnee......
  Sat. 8/29/15 2:43pm N.O. + 10:

STILL HERE GOTDAMMIT !!!
Avatar Sat. 8/29/15 2:47pm Mark Davess Limey in Moscow Russia:

Awesome show.

P-90, forgot to reply to your comment a while back! Not all of Rex's show opening instrumentals are surf...But they're all great.
  Sat. 8/29/15 2:48pm Hackensack Slim:

Rex,
Your philosophical outlook on work is truly, an inspiration to us all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/29/15 2:57pm Melissa Jean:

oh! I love this Ruben Fort
