Honor is still alive and kicking

Happy Mother's Day to Mrs. Kelly.

Didn't Soupy or Fred Hall used to feature "Leader of the Laundromat" on their TV shows?
  Sun. 5/13/18 3:48pm Al:

@Sid: I don't know. But I'm happy to know that someone besides me remembers Fred Hall!
Avatar Sun. 5/13/18 3:50pm Sid:

Used to be glued to Channel 5 as a kid in the mid 60s. Soupy, Fred Hall, Sandy Becker, Winchell & Mahoney.
Avatar Sun. 5/13/18 4:01pm dale:

no - peanut was a sweatheart. she was inbred and never got much bigger than a large kitten.
Avatar Sun. 5/13/18 4:07pm Sid:

As a former FM Chief Operator, BK - as long as the "ba-by!" is after the "East Orange" and before the "WMFU Mount Hope," it's all legal baby! Don't know when FMU IDs the two 91.9 translators (twice a day required I think), but that's an additional alphanumeric mouthful for somebody.
Avatar Sun. 5/13/18 4:09pm Sid:

Peanut's eyes have a somewhat demonic look. Great avatar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/13/18 4:17pm tw2sheds:

Chuck McCann had a puppeteer that would make puppets of the pop stars and have them lip-sync to the hits. i especially remember Mick Jagger doing "Get Off My Cloud" Maybe Chuck was on channel 11, possibly both at one time or another
  Sun. 5/13/18 4:17pm Minnesota Fish:

Who I plays this song?
  Sun. 5/13/18 4:20pm No. 7:

Sandy Becker use ta pantomime "Leader of the Laudromat," co-written and produced by Paul Vance, of "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Polka Dot Bikini" sez web
Avatar Sun. 5/13/18 4:25pm Sid:

No. 7, that's it. That's where I first heard the Laundromat record. Sheds, haven't seen good puppet pantomime since Craig Ferguson signed off of the Late Late Show a few years back.
  Sun. 5/13/18 4:27pm No. 7:

Julie Newmar played April Conquest in episode "Monkees Get More Dirt Out"
  Sun. 5/13/18 4:31pm No. 7:

If you're a Patrick McGoohan "Prisoner" fan, give "Secret Agent"/"Danger Man" episodes "The Ubiquitous Dr. Lovegrove," and "Colony Three" - on YouTube - a try
  Sun. 5/13/18 4:33pm andrewb:

Leader of the Laundromat is hilarious. I missed the last back announcements. does anyone know who did that Dion-esque number about walking the back streets?
Avatar Sun. 5/13/18 4:34pm Sid:

Seems the male counterpart to April Conquest would be January Escape!
Avatar Sun. 5/13/18 4:39pm Sid:

I'm not gonna tell y'all!

Gotta find his girl a new boyfriend
Avatar Sun. 5/13/18 4:42pm Sid:

andrewb, playlist is usually posted sometime this evening. Mr. Kelly isn't messing with the real-time posting technology. Don't know how you'd do that with vinyl without a lot of between-record fat-fingering.
  Sun. 5/13/18 4:48pm LoNoKato Fish:

So old school cool
Avatar Sun. 5/13/18 4:54pm dale:

this sounds like neil sedaka wrote it.
  Sun. 5/13/18 4:58pm andrewb:

@Sid Yeah, a select group of FMU djs get a pass on the acu-play , Glen Jones, Jeff Sarge etc. Its like the NFL veteran players who were allowed to play without helmets.
  Sun. 5/13/18 5:00pm andrewb:

NHL, duh
  Sun. 5/13/18 5:00pm the Butterflys:

Good night baby
  Sun. 5/13/18 5:39pm "My Mother is a Space Cadet":

"Not So Jolly Roger" is another favorite "Secret Agent"/"Danger Man" episode. Agent John Drake poses as a pirate radio DJ - filmed at a real offshore pirate radio station - historic footage. Patrick McGoohan shows he woulda made a great DJ.
  Mon. 5/14/18 7:14am good Morgen!:

Tomorrow [now today] fortune will again smile on us
Yesterday will be long over already
Even though it may have been a pretty good day

We're back at it
Yesterday doesn't matter to us
Were it also a pretty good day

If we're still poor and small tomorrow
If also we get no sunshine tomorrow
If also we're alone tomorrow
But tomorrow, tomorrow . . .

Tomorrow fortune will again smile on us
Tomorrow good times will return to us
Tomorrow all that will go away
Tomorrow life will finally be good again

As confirmed in a YouTube clip, Ivo Robic claims authorship of "Strangers in the Night" (among others), saying he submitted originally "That Summer Night" to a Croatian festival but the jury hadn't accepted it. Bert Kaempfert later offered, as his, a changed copy with lyrics "Fremde in der Nacht" to Ivo to record, which he did.

The odds are Secret Agent Man won't live to see tomorrow
  Swag For Life Member Mon. 5/14/18 2:01pm Peapeagirl:

Knew All the words to Leader Of The Laundromat. I was 7 years old & my brother played it not stop. I haven't heard the song since then. Thanks Bill...
I believe this playlist will be in my top 5 @ years end. So far Jan 7th playlist is my go to girl.
Ditto Sid, w/channel 5...
