I bring birthday greetings from the great state of Wisconsin, the home of Underground Sunshine, who 50 years ago this summer covered the Beatles' "Birthday" for their one big hit.

Jeff! Erica!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:05pm Funky16Corners:

It is indeed Franco! 57 years young!
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:06pm Franco Twinkie:

Okay, that tells me a lot about your particular slant on things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:07pm Funky16Corners:

Hmmmm, how so? Good? Bad? Terrible?
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:07pm Erica:

Younger than I thought.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:08pm Funky16Corners:

I must be one of those old souls they're always talking about.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:08pm Jeff Ash:

I found this Chuck Jackson and Maxine Brown LP on Wand in what basically was a head shop.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:08pm Franco Twinkie:

Well, when certain songs infected your brain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:09pm Funky16Corners:

@Jeff - Lucky! I've been looking for a while. I only have the 45s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:09pm Funky16Corners:

@Franco - I think you're right (about the song infections).
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:13pm Erica:

Speaking of Boy meets Girl, any Sonny & Cher in the show Larry?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:14pm coelacanth∅:

(they're in the gif image so i guess yes)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:16pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - yes indeed, as well as several S&C inspired duos
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:16pm Parq:

<male voice> Happy Birthday!
<female voice> And many more!
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:16pm Erica:

They look like Sonny and Cher coel but they're not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:17pm JtotheK:

Arriving in time for Eddie Bo & Inez! Hiya Larry, happy birthday! Good evening, everyone.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:18pm nostrangerer:

Focus on the 60s, OK I've adjusted my expectations accordingly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:18pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Parq! JtotheK!

Nostrangerer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:19pm Funky16Corners:

Erica - That is def Sonny and Cher in the fur vest and striped pants
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:20pm Erica:

It didn't look like Sonny though.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:21pm Erica:

Also, will we hear "Reach Out In the Darkness" by Friend and Lover, another boy/girl duet from the 60s? If not, just asking. I won't request anything else.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:22pm Funky16Corners:

No Friend and Lover, but lots of other cool things
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:22pm Parq:

Having lots of fun watching Larry's playlist gif cycle through on the top of the page and on his three playlist posts. Cool effect!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:22pm Funky16Corners:

Are you used to seeing Sonny with a mustache?
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:23pm northguineahills:

feliz cumpleanos grogan-san!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:24pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks NGH!
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:25pm Erica:

I'm also used to seeing Sonny with darker colored hair too Larry.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:30pm Franco Twinkie:

This set reminds me of the show Love Connection. One time, the host, Chuck Woolery was trying to ascertain why a particular hook-up went off the rails. The woman looked at him and said levelly in her own defense: "Chuck, I was looking good in my fur coat!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:31pm Funky16Corners:

Sadly, Chuck has gone off the rails of late
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:39pm Franco Twinkie:

This might be heresy to some, but I like version of California Soul by The Fifth Demension better.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:39pm Erica:

I looked up the image of the Storybook Children LP by Very and Clay and Billy Vera looked like a new waver who traveled from the early 80s into the 60s. Haha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:40pm Funky16Corners:

@Franco - That was the first version I knew and I rate it pretty highly
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:40pm Erica:

His taste in fashion was ahead of its time, I must say.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:41pm Franco Twinkie:

Billy Vera had a great show on KCRW back in the day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:41pm coelacanth∅:

i do too Franco
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:42pm Funky16Corners:

Billy Vera is a serious scholar of R&B and jazz, Big writer of liner notes for the Capitol Records reissue program for years
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:42pm Franco Twinkie:

The We Five cut out the line about getting sick.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:43pm chresti:

a feeling in my shoe
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:43pm Erica:

"I got drunk and I got sick." Never heard that lyric before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:43pm Funky16Corners:

But they made Ian and Sylvia a fat chunk of change!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:44pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - This is the original
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:44pm northguineahills:

not sure why, but this Ian & Sylvia is grabbing me....
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:45pm Erica:

Interesting Larry.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:46pm Franco Twinkie:

The We Five were very good, but Ian And Sylvia were great....and so good looking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:47pm Funky16Corners:

I have to dig out their country rock album, when they were the Great Speckled Bird
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:47pm Franco Twinkie:

Those Vanguard album covers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:48pm Funky16Corners:

Yes! Underrated!
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:50pm Franco Twinkie:

Very much of a Great Society vibe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:51pm Funky16Corners:

They only did a few 45s but they're all cool
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:51pm Doug Schulkind:

I'd follow you anywhere, Grogan. Happy birthday, Sir!
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:51pm Franco Twinkie:

How about Blackburn and Snow?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:52pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Doug! Thank you! It's been a good birthday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:52pm Funky16Corners:

Nothing by them Franco. I'm only vaguely familiar with the names
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:53pm Franco Twinkie:

Oh man, just you wait.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:54pm chresti:

Shoes filled with lead!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:55pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, those lyrics are crazy! Screw your eyes back into your head!
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:57pm Franco Twinkie:

Suede jackets, dilated pupils and long, long hair.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:57pm coelacanth∅:

wow i've never heard that version of come on in...and it's probably the original right?
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 10:57pm Erica:

Why does the song Come On In sound familiar if it's rare?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:58pm Funky16Corners:

It's a cover of a Music Machine song
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:04pm Funky16Corners:

THIS is the original version.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:05pm Franco Twinkie:

Wow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:05pm coelacanth∅:

oh i guess i've known the original. i'm so used to you playing the original versions of everything....
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:06pm northguineahills:

@Larry:Is it like no other gadget, that you've ever seen, does it start to spark w/ a shake yo the ground, the music machine only makes this sound, it goes,"Whirrrr Whiirrrr, chicka bum-bumps, Whirrrr Whiirrrr, chicka bum-bumps, if you want to hear a song, sar Whirrrr Whiirrrr, chicka bum-bumps"

Or were we talking about the Talk Talk album?

Haha ngh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:12pm Doug Schulkind:

Can't wait to hear which Smokey and his Sister track you play. They make me swoon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:14pm Matt from New Orleans:

Been enjoying the tunes Larry. I’ve been reading a new hardcover of reprinted Love and Rockets material. I love the Hernandez brothers.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:14pm nostrangerer:

Fun show. Tramp by Otis and Carla is the only one I expected. The majority of the rest have been lesser known versions of known tunes or lesser known tunes by known performers. Fun show.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:17pm Franco Twinkie:

I was with an ex-girl friend when we met Sean Bonniwell, the writer of Come On In, at her band mates house. Recently I asked her if she ever saw him again. She said only once, they went to the county fair together to see George Jones....who Sean had never heard of!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:21pm Matt from New Orleans:

Positively 4th Street by David Hajdu delves into Dylan, Joan Baez, Mimi and Richard Farina. It’s a good book. Can’t believe it’s been almost 20 years since I read it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:21pm Funky16Corners:

@Franco - Bonniwell was an interesting guy. I had a chance to talk to him briefly back in my fanzine days. He'd found Jesus (and martial arts) but was still pretty cool
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:21pm Erica:

I like how it sounds like two songs combined and edited together.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:21pm Funky16Corners:

@Matt - That's a great book
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:21pm Funky16Corners:

@erica - Some Velvet Morning is a very heavy and very weird record
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:22pm Funky16Corners:

@nostrangerer - Thanks! Glad you're digging it!
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:22pm Erica:

Especially during the end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:24pm Funky16Corners:

@Doug - I picked a good one!
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:24pm Franco Twinkie:

Yes. I remember. Sean was a Christian. When I met him he had long greasy hair and wore socks with flip-flops on a very hot day.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:26pm northguineahills:

Yes, I did xtian musicals as a kid and still remember all the lyrics....(then puberty hit and voice went to shit)
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:26pm Erica:

@Franco So he was basically Jesus?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:26pm Funky16Corners:

Socks and flip flops?!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:26pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - Jesus with one black glove
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:29pm Franco Twinkie:

Erica, we never got into it, but I got the impression he had a lot to say on the subject
  Wed. 9/4/19 11:30pm Johnzon:

cool show concept, thanks for the tunes & information dj larry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:30pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Johnzon! My pleasure!
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:30pm Erica:

Good and Plenty were actual last names?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:31pm Funky16Corners:

I'm guessing that they were pseudonyms, but I haven't been able to find other info
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:32pm Erica:

I'm about to say Larry.
  Wed. 9/4/19 11:33pm Johnzon:

isn't there a candy called that
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:33pm Funky16Corners:

There is indeed!
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:35pm Franco Twinkie:

Larry, was there a band called The Count Choculas?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:35pm Funky16Corners:

Not that I know of, but I'd bet they're out there somewhere, gigging with the Frankenberries
  Wed. 9/4/19 11:36pm Johnzo:

"Good & Plenty was first produced by the Quaker City Confectionery Company of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1893 and is believed to be the oldest branded candy in the United States." and one of the lamest(sorry liquorish lovers)
  Wed. 9/4/19 11:37pm rw:

The Count Choculas are my new favorite garage band. The Frankenberries suck.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:37pm Funky16Corners:

I'm with you Johnzon. Good and Fruity all the way for me.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:37pm Erica:

Don't forget the Boo Berries too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:37pm coelacanth∅:

all i'm sayin' there better be a band called cap'n crunch
  Wed. 9/4/19 11:37pm rw:

Boo Berries rock.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:38pm Erica:

Speaking of which I saw Count Chocula, Boo Berry and Frankinberry cereal at Walmart this past Saturday already.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:38pm Funky16Corners:

Boo Berries, Fruit Brutes, all of them played at Cerealstock

Frankenberry, sorry.

even as a child i wasn't tempted to try a chocolate flavored breakfast anything.

Oooh, I loved Cocoa Puffs, some might say I was coocoo for them...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:41pm coelacanth∅:

and for the record i liked good n plenty; didn't care for good n fruity.
  Wed. 9/4/19 11:42pm Doug Schulkind:

Bonus Smokey!!!
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:43pm Erica:

Since we're talking about cereal, anyone want to mention when they had cut out records on the boxes?
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:44pm Franco Twinkie:

I too liked Good 'n Plenty. It was my ritual movie matinee candy.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:45pm Franco Twinkie:

Cereal box records!?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:45pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - The Banana Splits, Bobby Sherman, Josie and the Pussycats, all (I think) appeared on cereal box records
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:45pm Funky16Corners:

@Franco - Yeah, you cut the record out of the back of the box
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:46pm Franco Twinkie:

Okay, after my time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:46pm coelacanth∅:

bobby sherman: little woman, i think. my mother wouldn't wait for me to search through the boxes for easy come easy go.
i forget what cereal it was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:47pm Funky16Corners:

They were on Post cereals, like Sugar Crisp and Alphabits
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:47pm Funky16Corners:

Maybe 1969/1970-ish
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:47pm Erica:

They were before my time but I've seen them on blog sites and whatnot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:48pm Funky16Corners:

I might have a few knocking around.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:49pm coelacanth∅:

yeah i really wanted a banana splits flexi, but my mother wouldn't buy whatever kind of cereal it was on. she only bought sweetened cereals if they were on sale, and refused to buy certain ones at all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 11:50pm Funky16Corners:

That was the rule in our house, too. Living under the tyranny of puffed rice (blecchhh)
  Wed. 9/4/19 11:50pm rw:

I've got the Banana Splits singles. I think I sent away for them with boxtops and maybe a dollar.
Avatar Wed. 9/4/19 11:51pm Erica:

At least it wasn't Rasin Bran Larry. Haha!
  Wed. 9/4/19 11:51pm rw:

And I sort of remember cereal box flexis. You would cut them off the back of the box, right? And then you had to tape them down to the turntable to keep them from slipping.

oh we had shredded wheat, total, cheerios, grapenuts, corn flakes... and all 3 chex cereals. i went through dozens of rice chex boxes, collecting "the lindburg line" model cars.

I have a buddy who did a book on cereal boxes. I bet he's got some. He would know at least.

Raisin Bran I meant. This chat room needs to have an editing system similar to Facebook, man.

@rw - Right on both counts. I have the set of Banana Splits 45s that you had t mail away for. The other records got cut right off the box

Used to love Grapenuts with a ton of sugar added on top. F16C, are your Banana Splits singles as beat up as mine are?

i remember one that was square or something, and the corners of course would curl up and whack the tone arm off the record

They are clean enough to DJ with but in fairly beat looking shape.

Speaking of free stuff with food: In Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, when Cliff booth kicks Bruce Lees ass, in the back round on the wall of the sound stage are cartoon posters of Laurel And Hardy. Smaller versions were folded up in Fritos corn chip packages in the sixties.

I miss the little rubber Frito Banditos

yeah we didn't always have sweet cereals but were allowed to put as much white sugar on them as we wanted.

Rubber Banditos!! Weren't they erasers or pencil toppers or something?
