Was anyone at the Fillmore East when they played "I Love My Shirt" as the exit music after Hendrix's New Years' Eve show? What an incredible time! Great memories...
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:17pm JakeGould:

Lord David Paul Nicholas Dundas… Well… Isn’t THAT something!

Yowzies! I remember hearing "Jeans On" on the radio years ago.

@Ken: Do you have an incredibly horrible joke about jeans? Feel free to adapt a pants joke if necessary.
  Sun. 7/8/18 8:21pm Grubbus:

Hello! what's this? This is goooooood! Real goooood!
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:23pm djsheilab:

Oh my god! My smile is so big right now. This Ants song is pure joy! I think we adults need this sweetness more than the kids.
  Sun. 7/8/18 8:23pm sugarplumfairywolf:

That's how you get ants!
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:23pm Amanda:

Thank u Grubbus!
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:23pm Amanda:

Haha, ANTS amirite?
  Sun. 7/8/18 8:23pm melinda:

Agree about the ants! Reminded me of John Prine but cuter.

F = F**king
U = Unbelievable

Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:28pm CDToaster:

@Luisa, Yes, it was very very cool. I was about 17 years old and it was about 1970. The show was mind-blowing and after the lights came on and as the theatre cleared out, they played "I Love My Shirt." I'll never forget it because it was the first time I heard it. I'd love to talk to someone who was there for that incredible show. Thanks for replying.
  Sun. 7/8/18 8:30pm P-90:

Welcome Roger. And Welcome Home Amanda!
  Sun. 7/8/18 8:31pm P-90:

I must be in the demographic of “ the younger listener”. Good to know.
  Sun. 7/8/18 8:31pm Grubbus:

I vote for am Saturday's because I was raised on greasy kids stuff....but AM is my vote...
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:31pm Mister Dobalina:

Finally a show for my young 40 year old self. Welcome Roger and Amanda.
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:35pm Mister Dobalina:

Blind Melon's cover and video of this track is pretty awesome. I think I like it better...but this is good too.

Oh hey, just going to drop that it’s Louis Jordan’s birthday… Don’t know if he did any kid stuff, tho.

“Watch the Donut Not the Hole” THIS IS SO GOOD!!!

He actually has a KILLER version of "And the Green Grass Grows All Around"!
  Sun. 7/8/18 8:42pm drew:

Wow. May I request any children's song by Pete Seeger, please? I have happy memories of those.
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:43pm JakeGould:

@northguineahills: I like that song, but the potential reasons for someone hiding in a chicken coop might be too dark for this show.
  Sun. 7/8/18 8:43pm sarah:

Enjoying the new show! Kids love it too! Thanks for putting this show together Amanda and Roger!
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:44pm Amanda:

Thank you for the request drew! I don't think we'll be able to get to any tonight but we both love Pete Seeger, glad you do too.

Thank you so much sarah!
  Sun. 7/8/18 8:44pm Andal:

Welcome and great show! I turmed on FMU looking for something weird and this is just what I wanted to hear. Very sweet idea.
  Sun. 7/8/18 8:44pm Jinx:

Burl Ives is one complicated dude. Kid songs, Rudolph Snowman, and Big Daddy, in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:44pm northguineahills:

@drew: I have a Folkways 10" of Pet Seeger children's songs. It's a amazing!

@Jake: I never got the euphemisms for that song until I was in my mid-20s, but then again, I don't hear lyrics...
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:45pm Amanda:

Thanks Andal, glad you enjoy the weirdness!
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:45pm Amanda:

Burl Ives also a friend of John Sebastian Senior
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:46pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Hey Amanda and Roger! Great show! I saw the Mr. Rogers movie last night. Between that and this, I'm happily regressing. I'm gonna go color some nice pictures now.
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:48pm northguineahills:

@Amanda: Bach? I didn't he know e was tha old!
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:49pm Amanda:

Oh, HAR HAR ngh!

Hiiiii Wendy! I'm so psychedddd to see the Mr. Rogers doc.
  Sun. 7/8/18 8:51pm Jinx:

didn't know about that friendship; Burl's politics also enhance his fascinating career.
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:52pm northguineahills:

Well, my keyboard has decided to go on strike...
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:53pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Amanda, make sure you bring extra tissues! I knew I'd cry for some of the movie, but I sniffled through the whole dang thing. I saw a bunch of friends at the screening and they said the same thing: "We brought extra napkins," and "I cried on my shirt." It's THAT good.
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:55pm joe mulligan:

fun show you two! you got me down a rabbit hole after looking up the origins of banana splits - there's some crazy other desserts I've never heard of like a Banana Boat (campfire tradition), Nanaimo Bars, and Chocolate Salami
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:56pm Amanda:

Oh darn, we missed a chance to play the Banana Boat song! Thx joe :-)
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:57pm melinda:

If I still ate sugary desserts I think I would be into those mochi ice creams.
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:58pm JakeGould:

I think I have mentioned it before, but there is an ice cream truck around Williamsburg/Bushwick that plays “Send in the Clowns.”
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 8:58pm northguineahills:

I love mochi ice creams (have one every 6-8 weeks).
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 9:00pm melinda:

I love her version of Sea of Love.
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 9:01pm melinda:

@Jake I would be into that.
  Sun. 7/8/18 9:05pm P-90:

Neat Burl Ives impression
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 9:08pm Amanda:

Thanks for validating my choices
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 9:10pm melinda:

This is too good. It turns out I really like speeded-up vocals.
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 9:11pm JakeGould:

What a weird kids song. GREAT!

I am 44 years old and I still laugh every time I hear Alvin & The Chipmunks.

Geez, this year we have two mama raccoons with nine kits between them. I need to get them to perform as a chorus.
  Sun. 7/8/18 9:12pm sugarplumfairywolf:

"Send in the Clowns" is a rather inappropriate song for an ice cream truck!!!
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 9:13pm Amanda:

Oh wow, that is so cute Uncle Michael

It's gonna be tough to keep two broods in tortillas.

That should be a pointless listener challenge one time: Nominate your most irreverent ice cream truck music.

And here is an ice cream truck that says “Hello!” Hat tip to former DJ Liz Berg for the tip on this one. youtu.be...
Avatar Sun. 7/8/18 9:29pm melinda:

@Ken I like that idea. Tom Waits' Ice Cream Man might be the most superficially appropriate yet inappropriate song.
  Sun. 7/8/18 9:31pm Jinx:

never realized the Yogi Bear theme was so damn catchy
  Sun. 7/8/18 9:34pm hidingintrumpsamerica:

Wow, I just listened to this in the archives and jinkies is it keen. There’s a lot of great theme sets here. My favorite was the shirts and pants set. For the next ice cream set, consider Song of the ice cream truck by Drink Me.

Hi - chiming in a few weeks later. I was recently singing the Donut Hole song to my daughter as another insane example of those advice songs like "High Hopes"! I see you are in the schedule, I'll try to tune in!
