I always wanna start singing Pictures of City by King Crimson to that last riff of that Krokofant song.

Joe has GIRL TROUBLE? Who would of guessed !!!
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 4/20/16 3:21pm Irwin:

Today's show synopsis: After Joe breaks up with his trophy girlfriend, an actress named Kate, he explains how he got involved with Kate in the first place. He then discloses unsavory incidents with other women that foreshadowed why his relationship with Kate was doomed, and invites listeners to pass judgment on his creepy behavior.

Come on, this ain't no "cartoon music".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 3:29pm Lewis:

my first experience with Joe Frank followed falling asleep with radio on and then becoming conscious of this very weird story (along the lines of today's plot) being told (in my dreams?...) I highly recommend near dream state listening, but that first time will be hard to replicate...

I dunno - I'd kind of prefer a Muzak treatment of Zappa.
  Wed. 4/20/16 3:30pm Laura L:

sounds like music experiencing an identity crisis.
  Wed. 4/20/16 3:34pm Lyle:

Stefan Scheib. A curious little man. Stood around 4' 11" as I recall. Prince tried to get him in the New Power Generation back in the day. I know, because I was IN the NPG for a short time, though they kept me backstage and out of sight due to my advancing age. Scheib refused to play with Prince because TAFKAP was too tall. Instead, Scheib joined up with Ready For The World, which further enraged the purple one. Scheib bottomed out in the early oughts, running monitors for Puddle of Mudd before he bailed out of the business completely. At least, this is what I've been told. I may be wrong. Stories are fluid in the music business. Truth is relative.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 4/20/16 3:39pm Parq:

Didn't one of the original Shaggs die? Isn't that who "Banana Butt" is about?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 4/20/16 3:40pm Alison Porchnik:

Lyle, wasn't Stefan Scheib the estranged son of auto paint and body Earl Scheib?
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 4/20/16 3:42pm Irwin:

Lyle: Your recollection is accurate. Did you write the wiki entry on Scheib? He started with a horn band called Creature Comforts in the early '70s.
  Wed. 4/20/16 3:44pm Lyle:

That's an urban myth, Alison. Wholly untrue. Earl Scheib is, however, the inspiration of Gene Chandler's Duke of Earl song. Evidently Earl Scheib's first auto paint job (then $9.99) was Chandler's 1962 Pontiac Tempest.
  Wed. 4/20/16 3:49pm Lyle:

Ha! Creature Comforts. That's another story entirely. Originally fronted by Carly Simon, who promptly bailed and joined Elephant's Memory. Creature Comforts soldiered on for another few years until they teamed up with Barry DeVorzon to write "Theme From Swit," an homage to the MASH actress who was popular at that time. Rhythm Heritage stepped in and changed the song to Theme from SWAT, and Creature Comforts didn't make a dime for their efforts. They disbanded days later after a physical altercation in a Denny's parking lot in Encino.
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 4/20/16 3:53pm Irwin:

Nunnally Parker of Terrible Trouble was in Creature Comforts for about three minutes. There were body odor issues, acc. to a 1989 retrospective interview in Rolling Stone.
  Wed. 4/20/16 3:54pm Mike:

Nice Caravan. Max charles n Duke
  Wed. 4/20/16 3:58pm K Wilde:

Trio - greatest song ever!
Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 3:58pm Whooda:

Lyle, that is fabulous trivia about Earl Sheib and his famous (infamous) car painting services. Incredible coincidental this morning I was running questions to myself about "Duke of Earl" song, specifically as free association between Duke of Earl, Earl of Sandwich and Sandwich of the month. Too weird to be real.
  Wed. 4/20/16 3:59pm Lyle:

The funny thing, Irwin, is that the odor issues were not "body" related, but rather stemmed from Parker's profuse use of Hai Karate - from what I've been told.
Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 4:00pm Whooda:

I didn't even mention my dad was a car painter and my first car was a Pontiac Tempest

Anyone joining the pool for what Frank will be describing between 4:20 & 4:21? I'm guessing a hot, dusty road that leads down the hill to an ocean beach.

Whooda, you're a long way from CA! How did you end up there?
Avatar Wed. 4/20/16 4:49pm Whooda:

Carnichael, Being born in Oklahoma renders one's thoughts focused on getting away and CA always promised the most...of EVERYTHING Oklahoma lacks. I was a born artist and CA was the Holy Grail for me. And CA was gracious to allow me to follow my dreams and succeed in them. I left in 1997

Does anyone know of a Joe Frank bit that has a some guy beginning, "I feel crazy as hell all the time..." and then he goes on to enumerate the ways in which everyone is constantly being bombarded by all kinds of thoughts, completely beyond their control
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 4:51pm Zach:

I feel like it was one of these Karma for Dollars bits

"Kate" sounds as evil as my ex-boyfriend
  Wed. 4/20/16 5:00pm Lyle:

There were lots of colognes we favored back then. I liked Canoe. I remember the night Tommy Dorsey made the switch from Old Spice to British Sterling. He was sure something good was bound to happen, yet, there he was at 2am back at the Hotel Chesterfield, watching Sea Hunt and knocking back a bottle of Kentucky Gentleman. The music life is often not as glamorous as one might think.

"Swallow the Son" is a reference to infanticide.

No, that's just silly. It's a reference to the Finnish heavy metal band that formed 33 years later.

Hey, now this is something!
  Wed. 4/20/16 5:47pm Lyle:

Boy, this Jaleel Shaw reminds me a lot of Boots Randolph. Boots was all "Yakkety" when the public was listening, but behind closed doors he was wildly experimental and steeped in the best aspects Pharoah Sanders and Rollie Kirk. He liked to smoke bananas, I'm told.
  Wed. 4/20/16 5:49pm Fredericks:

Lyle, are there tapes to prove it? I'm not buying. Boots? No way.

Great show, Irwin. Best Joe Frank ever - and your musical selections were exemplary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/20/16 5:56pm rrg:

The only radio station in the world that will play Abba followed by The Shaggs. Maybe the only program on this radio station that will do that.
  Wed. 4/20/16 5:56pm Listening Out There:

The Shaggs are in tune in most of this. Unheard of.
