@Sem - back in the 80s, I used to listen to Vassar's radio station regularly. On Monday nights, there was Polka from 6-9 PM, then thrash/death metal from 9-12 PM. I think I'd call the transition point between shows "death polka".

Wow. Art Tripp on drums with Tim? The same Art (Drumbo) Tripp who played with Zappa and Beefheart?

Joe I'm pretty sure you made up Fugain.

Belated thought - Kim Wilde was from Chiswick. I wondered at the time what she could really know about kids in America

re urology & stream, it gives Yellow Submarine a whole diff meaning. -- as joe played Jack Palance, i recall him on johnny carson's tonight show. he said "and all i remember from the review was that the writer said i had yellow teeth".

@Kevin. Her Dad sang a song called Abergavenny. Not sure if he ever went to Wales.

Ha, one of the things remaining in my dad's memory - he has dementia - is the Andrew Sisters' Rum and Coca Cola. he'd be correcting these lyrics right now

As kids, my bro and I would go ape for the B-side of "Rock Around the Clock" -- "13 Women." Ann-Margret did a great cover ("13 Men")

@Brian in UK: Abergavenny by Marty Wilde? It came out in Canada under his pseudonym Shannon

when that 45 was in the house i liked 13 women better than the a side.
that spooky guitar made it hilarious!

@Mark Oh really. I thought Shannon was in Ireland.

I guess we favored it over the A-side too @Coel -- hypnotic guitar indeed. And a cool story to boot!

Great way to start off the week on a rainy day. Thanks, Joe!

@Joe! Did you sneak a birthday in on us?
  Mon. 4/15/19 11:43am Mark in Toronto:

@Brian in UK: That may well be, but the single was was credited to "Shannon" here, i don't know why. It got airplay, i remember it. Did you see my comment to you earlier on RSD purchases?

Great to hear the late Kevin Coyne.

Joe, tricksy show today but good nonetheless.

Just went to see the Amazing Grace movie last night, highly recommended. Mick Jagger puts in a brief surprising "cameo"

@Brian: I like that! Definitely a tricksy show. @Mark: It's changed the way I hear the album a bit, for good or ill.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/15/19 11:46am Brian in UK:

Mark, sorry missed it. Looks good. Living in the country there are no shops nearby. Hope to check out one this week. I am sure that it will not be sold out.
  Mon. 4/15/19 11:49am Mark in Toronto:

It's funny to see things in stores still there from last year, or the year before, that just didn't sell. Won't somebody take this off our hands? Why is the Shocking Blue singles collection being released AGAIN this year? Where is the exclusivity!!!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 4/15/19 11:50am Brian in UK:

@Mark, taking a trip up to Abergavenny hoping the weather is fine. If you should see a black dog running free, well you know that it's mine.
Think those are some lyrics from memory.

Despite the fact that there are so many American towns with UK names, the USA seems to have more evocative names.

Thanks for the non-taxing show today, Joe. I do regret to inform you that Therese played a Wreckless Eric track last night. Love that New Bin!

I think my favorite moment in that Aretha film comes during her performance of this song. The choir director breaks down weeping (as I almost did) at the beauty of Aretha's voice. Great show as always, Joe!
