Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Can't be active listener / commenter today.

Of course many other WFMU shows that I enjoy but last Friday pushed me to act.

Jane Fonda's acting is stale and mediocre. She's like the Nancy Sinatra of actors. They're only famous because of their much more superior fathers.

Yes, the word torrent has been take over by the BitTorrent stuff, so perhaps not the best word choice in these times. Perhaps "endless streams " would better.

@Dan--yeah, though I think Jane Fonda got better...? BTW, Summer time is one of my all-time fave songs. I like your show idea. I think a show of all "La Bambas" would be great too.

"Hinky dinky parlez vous"...isn't this a case of...product placement? Maybe subliminal advertising?

What I am getting at is that if Mr. Ford thought he found something that was "purely white" then the joke is on him.

Is this where the announcer cuts in "Here,in the Orchid Lounge, High atop the Hotel Hinky Dinky, we bid you adieu, and ask that you join us every week at this time. And don't forget to smoke Lucky Strikes, and drink your Ovaltine!"

Archive playback time. Weird that your first set is setting off memories galore. Listened a lot to these in the late 70s and early 80s after I gave up on new wave and punk rock. Thank you so much for juggling the 10 inch disks, I would have been tempted to digitize them all ahead of time. But that is a laugh for me to say as I have not yet digitized any of my shellac disks. Ok. Will just listen until I have actual info to add.
