How do, Amanda and all! Now that is one dapper cat.

Is this Buddy singing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 9:12am Amanda:

Yes, it is Buddy Miles singing according to the notes.

Thanks, AmNaz.

Which are by David Fricke, so obviously they are accurate. :-)

Sally saw an opportunity in the necktie market and jumped on it. She was a good ol' gal.

my noisy industrial project opened for Wexler once in 2010 during my very brief music career. he was really nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 9:42am Amanda:

Oh, that's cool! Was he playing more noise-type stuff back then? Or was it an "opposites attract" kind of bill?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/5/17 9:46am pantz:

Yay! Ween!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/5/17 9:48am steve:

we were invited by the third act, a great now defunct local Krautrock-y band, who someone knew it would work. MW had a full band and played beautiful hypnotic psych folk stuff!

Happy Nazario Year, Amanda
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/5/17 9:49am pantz:

Ever listened to Dean's solo stuff? Really good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 9:50am Amanda:

I have, I love it. Thanks P-9O!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 9:52am Amanda:

I also think Aaron Freeman/Gene is seriously one of the best songwriters. And performers
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/5/17 9:53am pantz:

I agree, Amanda. That Freeman album from a couple years ago was tremendous. Really told the story of his struggle with addiction and recovery.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 9:57am listener james from westwood:

All forms of this theme song give me chills. Maybe not the little bit Bill Murray sings in that lounge. But the others. Mucho ASMR.

Stashu had Hot Lips on?! Holy Swit!

i thought this guy was talking about the rain until i checked the playlist
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/5/17 10:12am KP:

Interesting observation via a Tom Wilson radio show from back then. Irwin has been presenting them regularly and they are great. The Lou Reed one especially

I do not want to fall behind in my numbers payments to this cat.

@Jeff, I hear you. Yet somehow I would trust him to deliver me a newspaper.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:15am Amanda:

@steve He was talking about the rain AND Loraine! And so was Brian Hyland, crazily enough.

"Red Rubber Ball" was co-written by Paul Simon, too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:35am Amanda:

Yes it was. I lived a long time before I learned that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/5/17 10:37am Scraps:

And RRB was also covered by Mel Tormé and Cliff Richard!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:38am Stevel:

I'd be in for an all Stepping Stone show. Just saying, in case someone like Joe McG happened to be tuned in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/5/17 10:38am Scraps:

Separately, he added. Mel and Cliff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:40am Amanda:

I'd love to do an all-Stepping Stone show! I doubt there are 3 hours worth of Stepping Stone covers, but it would be fun to find out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/5/17 10:40am Little Danny:

G'morning Amanda and all fellow listeners and dapper cats
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:42am Amanda:

Hey, it's dapper Danny! Welcome!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:43am Stevel:

There's a handful of hardcore Stepping Stone covers, including Minor Threat and SOA (Stepping Stone Party). That should take care of about 2:33 of the show. Sex Pistols, too. Now you're up to almost four minutes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:46am Amanda:

Ha

Good morning from AgeWell senior center, Amanda. Play some punk, LOUD!

Very cool Manfred Mann. 1964? Wow.

Tom Petty covered it, too. 2 hours 53 minutes to go
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:49am Amanda:

Sorry I can't help you, @Doug, but maybe the seniors fancy a slow dance at this point?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:50am Amanda:

@Stevel - the B-side of Doo Wah Diddy. Sounding a lot like Van Morrison and THEM
  Thu. 1/5/17 10:51am Doug Schulkind:

They will love anything you choose, Madam Selector!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/5/17 10:54am pantz:

Good God! Heh! Love this version of Sunny. Nice pick, Amanda.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/5/17 10:54am Little Danny:

I could easily hang with three hours of "Sunny."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 10:55am Stevel:

Sunny is the name of our newer, self-awaredly adorable golden-doodle, and I think of this song every time I look at her adorable face. (She is also an accomplished thief.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/5/17 11:04am KP:

I could listen to Mary Wing five mornings a week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:04am Amanda:

Yay, Sunny! That seems like the right name for a Goldendoodle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:05am Stevel:

What KP said.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/5/17 11:07am Little Danny:

expert segue into Veronica Lake!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/5/17 11:08am steve:

aw man i stepped away and missed Sunny! i was amazed when i played the Boney M version before class one day and a student (probably 18-19) immediately identified it.

Thanks LD!

IIRC this is one of Matt Groening's favorite eps, too.

I love Bart's B-story! And "It started to fall over, then it fell over" has been in my lingo since, applied to things from NASDAQ to the Iraq War to the Democratic Party.

Hey, nice segue from the Simpson's topic to this TMBG song. You're a true professional, Amanda.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:48am Amanda:

Not true: I collect no money for my Simpsons segues. A nice compliment, @pantz.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/5/17 11:48am steve:

years later i recognize how many incredible gags there are in this episode, but when it first aired, i thought it felt surprisingly mean spirited and amoral for the Simpsons of the time.

live from Topeka, Kansas

Make radio with Uncle Michael! This Hinky Dinky Time will be crowd-sourced as the listeners program the show. The comments at wfmu.org... will go live by 7:30 ET, tomorrow morning. Come by and post your requests. At noon, we'll hear what we got!

Turning up. Love Concrete Blonde. No guilty pleasures!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 1/5/17 11:51am Amanda:

@steve It really grew on me as well... for years it was one that I usually skipped when I watched Simpsons DVDs, not because I didn't like it, but because it was just so different in tone from the others.

huh, I'm trying to switch from my ipad to my work computer, which I do every day, and FMU isn't letting me:
