Hello everyone!
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:02pm Mr Fab:

Hey all! Oh what I wouldn't give for this album. You wrote about it in your "World's Worst Records" book, didn't you Darryl?
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:02pm worldsworstrecords:

Yo Rich!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Jan! And Rich! :-) And thank you, Darryl :-) You know how much I love that song :-)
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:03pm worldsworstrecords:

I did... it's awesome!
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:03pm worldsworstrecords:

I can always rip a copy to MP3 for you Mr F if you need it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:04pm Rich in Washington:

This was one of the first tunes I ever downloaded off the internet, if memory serves. I had only up to that point a poorly recorded and truncated copy I'd taped off of a radio program in the 80s.
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:05pm worldsworstrecords:

It doesn't get better
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:05pm Mr Fab:

Bless you, my son! I would love it if you could Darryl, I'd like to add tracks from it into the Sheena stream
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

God, I love The Shat :-)
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:06pm worldsworstrecords:

I'll do that, might take me a few days to dig it out, but I need to re-rip it anyway as I've lost the digital copy I had
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:08pm worldsworstrecords:

That was an odd little jump at the end there
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:09pm Jan Turkenburg:

Ah, this was my first 'cover of the week' at the local radio station. I had it from this show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Are they doing "Yellow River" in the middle??
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:10pm worldsworstrecords:

Hurrah! Glad to be of assistance Jan
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:10pm worldsworstrecords:

God, you're right Georgy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I may be slightly obsessed with "Yellow River" ;-) One of my favourite songs ever :-)

Little Marcy! I finally got to read the Cool and Strange Music 'interview' with her, written by my friend Toby/Dr. Zomb.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:19pm Otis Fodder:

Years ago, when I was younger, I would play Little Marcy at stoplights very very loud and look really serious bobbing my head like it was some bass-heavy jam.
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:19pm Mr Fab:

otis: Ha haaa!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:20pm Otis Fodder:

Great article in C&SM. A fav from the mag.

LOL!
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:20pm Mr Fab:

Did you play "I Love Little Pussy"?
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:20pm Martinibomb:

I remember that article I didn't realize that was Dr. Zomb! wow!
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:21pm worldsworstrecords:

I Live Little Marcy
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Gloria Balsam sounds like that awful "Hairdresser" woman on "Stairway to the Stars". :-)
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:21pm worldsworstrecords:

...although that single is pre- 'little' Marcy, and is credited to Ms Tigner herself
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:22pm worldsworstrecords:

Gloria B is a doll: very sweet woman who now teaches special needs kids
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

:-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:23pm Otis Fodder:

@Fab - This was the late 80s with a mix of a few Marcy records i had at the time on cassette. Thankfully, I did not discover Markie until a good decade later and my bass booming years were over.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:23pm Jan Turkenburg:

so she's a hero (and I mean that)
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:23pm worldsworstrecords:

yes Jan, absolutely
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:24pm Otis Fodder:

The only Tigner record I have now on the shelf now is her Trombone album. I love it, no joke, so lovely.
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:25pm Mr Fab:

My cousin's daughter has a cat named Fluffy. When i was visiting them, we couldn't find him. We were all looking. And yes, i really did start saying, Here Fluffy, where are you..? I thought: If only Darryl were here to see this.
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:25pm worldsworstrecords:

My husband just shouted from the other room "it sounds like you're listening to porn"
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:25pm worldsworstrecords:

I replied "I am... audio porn"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My daughter just said that when she's alone in the house she sounds like most of these records ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:26pm Rich in Washington:

I just now had to turn it way down at work for the same reason, Darryl!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:26pm Otis Fodder:

The Crusher is so good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:26pm Rich in Washington:

So much unexplainable stuff on this stream, I am often listening on my headphones. But I wouldn't want it any other way!
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:27pm worldsworstrecords:

lol!
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:28pm Mr Fab:

i haven't been paying attention to how long this channel's been up. Over 6 months now, eh? Congrats to you Darryl. (And to all the DJs here. everyone's been absolutely brilliant)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

What is it with both psych and disco that EVERYBODY had to get on board? :-) Do my fellow EML people remember the Sinatra rumour back in the day? ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:29pm Rich in Washington:

Hard not to hear Negativland's cut up version of this when listening to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Six months is bloody brilliant - yay us! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:29pm Rich in Washington:

What's the Sinatra rumour? I have to know!
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:29pm worldsworstrecords:

Well, this is my 26th episode, so yes that's half a year
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:30pm worldsworstrecords:

Haven't we done well?
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:30pm worldsworstrecords:

Me too! Spill on the Sinatra or I'll play some of his disco pap next week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:31pm Otis Fodder:

Whenever friends come over to hang out, have a beer, kick back... I put the Sheena's stream on in the backdrop low. Sorta routine now. Plus helps that pals have similar trashy tastes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:31pm Rich in Washington:

I think I started up a month or so after everyone else.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There was a rumour, back in the 90s - sadly disproved - that Sinatra had recorded a psych album. The cover, it was said, featured Frank in a Nehru jacket, and it was called "In-A-Gadda-Sinatra".
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:32pm worldsworstrecords:

awww... sadly Sammy beat him to it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There was a FRENZIED search for that one! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:32pm Rich in Washington:

Oh man! Someone should talk Tina or Nancy or whoever to release it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:32pm Jan Turkenburg:

lol, I would have loved to hear that indeed!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:32pm Rich in Washington:

Oh. I see what you wrote. Not true. Well, we can dream...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It was a myth :-( It never existed. Just a rumour. But ohhhhhhh the thought of it :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:33pm Rich in Washington:

But maybe someone could recreate it. Know any good late-era Sinatra impersonators?
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:34pm worldsworstrecords:

doo-be-doo-be -pass the doobie - doo
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Harry Connick seems up for a laugh :-) Does he still sing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:36pm Rich in Washington:

I watched all the outtakes from Spinal Tap again the other night, including a really lengthy part with Bruno Kirby as the band's Sinatra worshipping limo driver. Really funny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Sammy. Dig. :-)
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:39pm worldsworstrecords:

I love Portsmouth Sinfonia so much!
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:44pm worldsworstrecords:

Makes me laugh every time
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:46pm Mr Fab:

Brian Eno on clarinet
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Portsmouth - land of my birth, and weirdly, this is what I sound like when I attempt a musical instrument ;-)
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:47pm worldsworstrecords:

I knew Eno produced it, but was not aware he played on it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:48pm Rich in Washington:

We have a little tiny community orchestra in my town, mainly composed of retired folks who USED to play instruments. I think they have a similar modus operandi to PS. I should try to attend one of their gigs. One of their members asked me to shoot video of them, but I couldn't make it work, schedule-wise.
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:48pm worldsworstrecords:

...before you mentioned it, that is ;-)
Avatar Wed. 5/15/19 2:50pm Martinibomb:

@Rich be fun to produce some music with a group like that. If you could use their skills in a creative way
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/15/19 2:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm getting excited now ... I can sense the presence of The Enid :-)

one of the things that drew me into collecting weird records was Dave's Record Collection segments on David Letterman, which gets shown, as well as the man tasked with coming up with the records.
