Nice to wake from my nap to this!

Hey Gary! NGH!
Avatar Wed. 5/23/18 10:24pm Jeff Ash:

This second set would have been right in my dad's wheelhouse. Thanks, man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 10:25pm Funky16Corners:

We'll dedicate it to his memory!
Avatar Wed. 5/23/18 10:32pm Jeff Ash:

Appreciate the thought. This is the stuff he'd blast on his boom box, turned up to 11 because of his hearing loss.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 10:32pm Funky16Corners:

There's some Ink Spots coming later, big with our parents generation.
Avatar Wed. 5/23/18 10:34pm Jeff Ash:

The Mills Brothers were one of my dad's faves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 10:36pm Funky16Corners:

I was shocked when I discovered this early stuff. They were so huge and middle of the road by the 60s. My grandparents liked the Mills Brothers. I don't know if they knew this stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 10:39pm chresti:

My Dad loves Louis Armstrong and the Mills Brothers
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 10:40pm Funky16Corners:

I got into almost all of this stuff via my father. I don't know if he's listening tonight but he'll pick it up on the podcast if he isn't.
  Wed. 5/23/18 10:49pm Gary via app:

This is the most beautiful poem in the English Language
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 10:50pm Funky16Corners:

Slim was a wellspring of poetry!
  Wed. 5/23/18 10:50pm rw:

Yeah, I also know most of this stuff through my dad (mom too but mostly dad both born in 1932). I sometimes feel sorry for people a little younger than me who don't have any connection with music from this era.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 10:51pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, unless you have someone in your life to bring it along, you'd have to dig pretty deep to find it on your own
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/23/18 10:55pm northguineahills:

That song made me hungry. Had a coworker gave me a container of a sortof whitefish salad (w/ jalapenos and spices) of fish he caught and smoked himself.
  Wed. 5/23/18 10:55pm rw:

I have a good friend (40 yrs old) who only knows the Mares Eat Oats and Does Eat Oats song through David Lynch which seems crazy to me. But at least he knows it!
  Wed. 5/23/18 10:55pm Gary via app:

I’m embarrassed to admit it, but I found out about Slim via an issue of American Splendor
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 10:55pm Funky16Corners:

Nothing wrong with that. If you found him, that's all that matters!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 10:56pm Funky16Corners:

Now I could go for some matzoh ball soup
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/23/18 10:57pm northguineahills:

My father took me to the Michael Jackson Victory tour when I was 7, and got a Lionel Richie Laserdisc, but otherwise, I only heard xmas and church music at home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 10:58pm Funky16Corners:

I was very lucky to have a great mix of jazz and classical at home (very little hip pop).
  Wed. 5/23/18 10:58pm rw:

ngh, As far as I can tell you made up for it and then some!
  Wed. 5/23/18 10:59pm rw:

My kids grew up with some pretty weird shit playing fairly constantly. They seem surprisingly well adjusted.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 11:01pm Funky16Corners:

I play everything for my kids. They like some of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/23/18 11:04pm Parq:

Great stuff, Larry; My dad was a huge Slim fan, even though he insisted on pronouncing "vaut" phonetically ("vowt").
  Wed. 5/23/18 11:04pm rw:

F16C, Sounds like a good strategy to me.

Slim Gaillard, go!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 11:05pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Parq! I'm pretty sure Slim let it slip like that a few times!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 11:08pm chresti:

I luvva love love this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 11:09pm Funky16Corners:

Excellent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/23/18 11:09pm northguineahills:

@rw: It took until age 16 that I dove headfirst into the musical pool. I had some help from some excellent friends. I already had natural curiosity, so, once I found it, I was everywhere (wasn't allowed to leave the house until my 17th bday). (parents have mellowed in their outlook culturally, but have double-downed politically. I'll take it). Oh, y gracias amigo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 11:12pm chresti:

Wow NGH! How is it possible to keep a 16/17 year old in the house?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/23/18 11:21pm northguineahills:

Oh, I snuck out, but usually just to go explore the woods at night (I was very boring)

Thanks Larry, off to go see a show, Adios mis amigos
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 11:21pm Funky16Corners:

Nite NGH!
  Wed. 5/23/18 11:27pm Dean:

Just learned that Gaillard did a nice rooster tune.
Avatar Wed. 5/23/18 11:28pm Jeff Ash:

Thanks again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 11:28pm Funky16Corners:

My pleasure Jeff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 11:30pm Funky16Corners:

@Dean - which song?
  Wed. 5/23/18 11:31pm rw:

ngh, enjoy the show!

Chicken Rhythm?

Pardon the expression, but "Fuck Off": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XiD-M8XpCVk

Ooh! I don't have that one!
  Wed. 5/23/18 11:36pm Dean:

Wenzel's Music Town musta had it. Damn, I miss that place.
  Wed. 5/23/18 11:36pm rw:

It's a good one. Not safe for radio but okay for web streaming! (Or slipping into a playlist for a road trip with the kids)
Avatar Wed. 5/23/18 11:37pm Jeff Ash:

We just saw and heard Evan sing "Java Jive" a couple of weeks ago in Ohio. It's a tradition for the Miami University Men's Glee Club, to which he belongs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 11:37pm Funky16Corners:

That's cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 11:40pm chresti:

This is a great cd.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/23/18 11:42pm Funky16Corners:

Yes indeed
  Wed. 5/23/18 11:55pm rw:

I'm kind of a sucker for the sad songs.

Thanks Larry! Awesome possum as always!
