Coming at you at the top of the hour... 60 minutes of excruciatingly awful audio... will your ears be able to cope?

Oh my God....LOL
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Jan Turkenburg:

About Johnny Camaro, I think people might be offended in hindsight now, but my Surinam friends at the time of the release laughed their ass off.
Avatar 🎸 2:05pm Paper Kosmonaut:

No one in those days was politically correct.
  2:05pm Jay Pemberton:

This record was so bad I had to speed-correct it as I transferred it....it was audibly running slow by about 1% by the end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Jan Turkenburg:

And by the way, I know some white Surinam people that speak with the same accent...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm Rich in Washington:

hello, Darryl! We are all god's foot stool!
Avatar 2:06pm worldsworstrecords:

Oh, so are people concerned that Johnny Camaro wasn't quite 'woke'?
Avatar 🎸 2:06pm Paper Kosmonaut:

A foot stool, is that a turd in the shape of a foot? (-;

Johnny Camaro was an alter ego of a Dutch DJ on national radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Rich in Washington:

Hi everybody!
Avatar 🎸 2:07pm Paper Kosmonaut:

A stool of one foot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Jan Turkenburg:

I haven't heard of any controverse about Johnny Camaro, but he's been dead for quite some years now, so there's nobody to be angry at anymore and no Alfred lagarde to apologise, as a wellknown Zwarte Piet actor did.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Lol!! Always the best for ME ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Rich in Washington:

that commercial!
  2:08pm Jay Pemberton:

And that had to be the Gospel Groaner of the Week!

I'm so excited for this record too

@Darryl - :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Rich in Washington:

I heard that Cream/Falstaff beer commercial on the auto stream the other day and LOL'd to myself. I love that so much.
Avatar 2:09pm worldsworstrecords:

I have to find a copy of this album... I need it in my life
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:09pm MHLee:

I feel like it's a bit like listening to Pat Boone sing a song he has no business singing. It's such a laughable thing that it is a second thought that he existed to white wash R&B.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - I need to play that for you again on the Flange :-)
Avatar 2:10pm worldsworstrecords:

If you want to know more about Scott, I wrote about him here: worldsworstrecords.blogspot.com...
Avatar 🎸 2:10pm Paper Kosmonaut:

such a shame of a good backing track.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

And I just can't hide urrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitttttttttttttttttttttttt Lol
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:10pm MHLee:

Specific example he sings the FAT MAN a song which imo could only be Fats Domino
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm Rich in Washington:

the thing about Pat Boone covering songs in his spectacularly mediocre style is there's this smugness about it - like "I fixed this song for you. YOU'RE WELCOME!"
Avatar 2:11pm worldsworstrecords:

Wait until later. PK, for a brilliant example of how to misuse a backing track
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Avatar 2:12pm worldsworstrecords:

Without planning anything, i managed to programme at least three tracks from Wisconsin this week
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Darryl - I refer you to my last comment ;-) Lol
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:13pm MHLee:

So many of these are bad country songs out of time.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

He sounds a little Burl Ives-ish :-)
Avatar 2:13pm worldsworstrecords:

Country is a veritable goldmine for bad music lovers, MHL
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Was Burl Ives from Wisconsin?
Avatar 🎸 2:14pm Paper Kosmonaut:

I am still waiting to the song to actually start.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:14pm MHLee:

@GG I hear that.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Illinois

I'm assuming he's Native American, but I've not been able to discover anything about him yet
Avatar 2:15pm Beany:

Leave my goat alone
Avatar 2:15pm worldsworstrecords:

The record company that put this out specialised in polka records... make of that what you will
  2:15pm Jay Pemberton:

I remember the times my mother would find those boxes of random mystery 45s, 10 for 39 cents or such....the country records would sound like something someone recorded for their mother to love. Then again, I'm a jazz musician's kid, so you can imagine the standards (in more ways than one) of what I grew up hearing!
Avatar 🎸 2:15pm Paper Kosmonaut:

I read Father foot. as if he also needed a stool.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Aha! Illinois borders Wisconsin - there you go :-) Similar language patterns then :-)
Avatar 2:15pm worldsworstrecords:

lol PK!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Google is my friend ;-)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:16pm MHLee:

It's funny because even though these country tracks are bad... I could envision them getting airplay if they were released about 20-30 years later
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm sorry I missed that - he was a what turned drag act?
Avatar 2:17pm worldsworstrecords:

...talking about drag acts, GG... Vince C was/is also a Catholic priest and a drag artiste
  2:17pm Jay Pemberton:

A priest.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That's ... a leap!! LOL!
Avatar 2:17pm worldsworstrecords:

:-)
Avatar 🎸 2:18pm Paper Kosmonaut:

This is bad in so many ways. Fantastic.
Avatar 2:18pm worldsworstrecords:

Not for a good number of Catholic priests ;-)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:18pm MHLee:

@GG both those states can have a midwest accent... people in the US often don't think about it but when you hear it it really sticks out... it's especially pronounced in rural areas.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Darryl - I mean ... the gold, the dresses ... the general over-the-topness ... Not so much of a leap after all ;-)
Avatar 2:19pm worldsworstrecords:

It's awful. I've just spent a small fortune buying up the Vincent Capretta back catalogue... more to come over the next few weeks!
Avatar 2:19pm Beany:

He's no Father Francis though...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MHLee - It's old Trixie Mattel videos where she says she's a "dreg queen" ;-)
Avatar 2:19pm worldsworstrecords:

True, Beany
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19pm Rich in Washington:

I have a me accent and it's really weird. I only notice it when I'm not me.
  2:19pm Jay Pemberton:

Some midwesterners sound like they have a load of cow poo in their mouths....they did up in Iowa!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:19pm Rich in Washington:

LOL! Dreg queen!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Beany - NO ONE is Father Francis. He's a one off :-)
Avatar 🎸 2:20pm Paper Kosmonaut:

cow stool.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - Most people ask me where the hell I'm from. Lol
  2:20pm Jay Pemberton:

God's cow stool?
Avatar 2:20pm worldsworstrecords:

My accent fluctuates... If I spend more than 48 hours in Liverpool I start to sound like a scouser. usually I sound like a Wurzel. If I ever did drag my name would be Madge Cutler
Avatar 2:21pm Beany:

I have written to Father Francis again. No reply just yet.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Darryl - Lol!!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Beany - if you ever get a reply, tell him I am a genuine fan <3
Avatar 2:21pm worldsworstrecords:

I think Madge Cutler is a brilliant drag name for a WEst Country boy
  2:21pm Jay Pemberton:

I miss the Jeremy Kyle show....there were some amazing dingers on there!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:21pm MHLee:

I'm fairly neutral US accent but I'm surrounded by weird ones. There's a river and on either sides it gets different and once you just go a little bit South people start peppering in y'all then suddenly it's deeply Southern.
Avatar 2:22pm Beany:

Scouse Wurzel? You der man la.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Jay - Oh God ... there were some doozys!

I swear every track you play from this is like a different style.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:23pm MHLee:

and still awful
Avatar 2:23pm Beany:

GG - the good Father released WAY more records than we know about. I'm hoping to get more of them, including his Abba album.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That Tony Fabbri album cover looks like the classical albums you find in charity shops. Lol
Avatar 2:24pm worldsworstrecords:

It really is, MHL... it's the gift that keeps o giving, this album. Probably partly because it was recorded over a 15 year period
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Beany - That would be heaven. No pun intended.
Avatar 🎸 2:24pm Paper Kosmonaut:

LOL @ GG - that cover- indeed!
Avatar 2:24pm Beany:

It's the innocuous album covers you have to look out for.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:25pm MHLee:

Speaking of terrible music I found one recently. Lofi horror rock from the 50's I assume. It's randomly included in some of those sketchy amazon compilations.
  2:25pm Jay Pemberton:

Wait until you hear what I sent Darryl this past weekend....
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@PK - There's always at least three moth eaten Mozarts at the back of a bin ;-)
Avatar 2:25pm worldsworstrecords:

There's a track from that coming up later, Jay. I couldn't wait to share it
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Jay - Uh oh ;-)
  2:25pm Jay Pemberton:

COOL!
Avatar 2:26pm worldsworstrecords:

Incidentally, next week's WWRRS is a special - one whole hour of song-poem disco songs
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm Rich in Washington:

Oh wow! That sounds fantastic!
Avatar 2:26pm Beany:

Do you have a mirrorball set up for it?
Avatar 2:27pm worldsworstrecords:

some old favourites, some that you will have never heard before
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Originally, the Flange was going to be a nuclear bunker show. It never had legs tho and I couldn't think what to call it.
Having heard "Radiation Station" just now tho ... Damn. Lol

@Rich - Same! I just couldn't figure it out or see where it would go. The pub on the other hand .. ;-)
Avatar 2:30pm worldsworstrecords:

It would make one hell of a Sheena's show, Rich
Avatar 🎸 2:30pm Paper Kosmonaut:

lots of turbulence in that jet lady song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Rich in Washington:

I would be scared to be a passenger on a jet and find out my pilot released such an unhinged record.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:30pm MHLee:

I don't think I've heard any more of the Jet Lady other than the Songs in the Key of Z

They're really nice. Lol
  2:35pm Jay Pemberton:

I have a CD from Texas of a Christian group who called themselves Clemency....a man and his wife. They spent something like $7000 on the CD's production, and it's original material. The guy's wife sings backup and tends to whistle through her teeth as she sings....and I had nothing to do with it!
Avatar 2:35pm worldsworstrecords:

easily, Rich. It's something i may well do one day
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:35pm MHLee:

Also I've actually been reading a compilation of short stories about Elvis post-death.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Rich in Washington:

Q: Why did they bury Elvis in his own backyard like a pet hamster?
  2:38pm Jay Pemberton:

This is the OTHER John McCormack, like there was the 'other' Ray Charles. This guy sounds nothing like the one who recorded virtually everything he did for Victor Red Seal in the 78 era.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:38pm MHLee:

There's this record by an impersonator from 2006? I think some people thought was him returned. If you ever wanted to hear Elvis sing "Tears in Heaven"
Avatar 2:39pm worldsworstrecords:

Yes Jay... the 'real' John McC would have been dead half a century by the time this one started performing
Avatar 🎸 2:39pm Paper Kosmonaut:

Th greatest toilet related death of course was that girl who got killed by the toilet seat of space station MIR when it returned into the atmosphere.

I actually admire the energy McCormack pours into his performances.

Read the news about the out-of-control Chinese rocket that's going to crash somewhere and how we shouldn't worry about it.

Al Petty did a lot of prison time....he would woo and marry several elderly oil widows for their money. That part of northeast Texas discovered oil in the middle of the Depression.

Great find, Jay!

Those vocal harmonies were all electronically synthesised.

Oh yes, the official state song.

Darryl, this show is chockfull of nasty surprises. Good work, man.

There is a place of my heart that will always belong to John Denver. I don't care what anyone says. And there is literally nothing you could ever do to make me hate this song.
There. :-) <3
Avatar 🎸 2:45pm Paper Kosmonaut:

Good for you, GG. I have the same with The Carpenters...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@PK - I mean, The Carpenters too. :-) Ah, Karen <3

Ditto Don Estelle GG
Avatar 🎸 2:46pm Paper Kosmonaut:

Yes. Karen. What a sooooothing voice she had.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Rich in Washington:

John Denver was the first thing I remember our family getting on cassette when we got our first cassette player. Probably '69 or '70.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I was all prepared to do a Simon and Garfunkel sing a long there! ya punked me! :-)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:47pm MHLee:

I'm from WV. That song is ever-present and loved... which is why I'm now inspired to find the worst version possible and get it into rotation.
Avatar 2:47pm worldsworstrecords:

haha! Wrong Homeward Bound, GG
Avatar 🎸 2:47pm Paper Kosmonaut:

Well you now have a good contender, MHL.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Darryl - I am quietly singing under my breath ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm Rich in Washington:

I was listening to a radio show when the news broke to announce John Denver's death.

And I will countenance no bad-mouthing of Paul and Artie

I bought a CD yesterday which is free improvisation drums. Just drums. Fortunately the track Fanfare And Reprise For An Argumentative Tap Dancer is only 26 seconds long.

@Darryl - None from me!! I am a HUGE fan <3

I used to get called John Denver. I was blonde-headed with round glasses.

Levi Stubbs could do no wrong

The haircut too... when I was like five.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Ok, half a fairly large punnet was in fact too many grapes. Lesson learned.
Avatar 2:50pm worldsworstrecords:

two more songs after this, then it's all over to Georgy's place for a HWM Delia Derbyshire special: www.wfmu.org...
  2:50pm Jay Pemberton:

Deffo the Joanne Duo!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Darryl - yet again you have given us a superlative show! Thank you, lovely! :-) x
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Rich in Washington:

They did pretty good for being conjoined at the cheekbone.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:51pm MHLee:

I was looking for some Delia Derbyshire earlier.
Avatar 2:51pm worldsworstrecords:

You are more than welcome, GG x
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MHLee - I have some for you! :-)
Avatar 2:52pm worldsworstrecords:

I've become a bit obsessed with her recently, MHL
Avatar 2:52pm Beany:

Could the Joanne Duo ever be persuaded to reform? They are magic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Rich in Washington:

Oh yeah! I just watched that Sisters With Transistors documentary and it's wonderful. Can't wait for your show, GG!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:52pm MHLee:

I actually have to duck through. I need to record for a show I do today. Dungeonsynth

I think he might be dead
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Those loud notes are a tad startling. Lol
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:52pm MHLee:

I'll give it a listen later though!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - I still have that to watch :-)
Avatar 2:52pm worldsworstrecords:

I believe Joanne herself is still around though

Break it to me gently Darryl.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:53pm MHLee:

I always love the bombastic vocalists.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Ah The Doodles. Who can forget Doodlemania?
  2:54pm Jay Pemberton:

The guy in Iowa who engineered that 'Proud Mary' record engineered an album of a 6 piece jazz band my dad was in. The pianist/singer had a habit of softly groaning when he wasn't singing....they told the engineer to make sure the vocal mic was muted when he wasn't singing. But guess what was the loudest part of the opening track--when instead of the re-recording they made for the album, the engineer used the soundcheck recording with the levels all over the place?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm Rich in Washington:

I wonder who the Doodles were. Discogs only lists this solitary release. Some label's studio group?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@PK - Hahahahaha!!!!
Avatar 2:56pm worldsworstrecords:

Definitely, Rich
  2:56pm Jay Pemberton:

The thumbnail pic of Hit 104 is the label of that Doodles record.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:56pm MHLee:

God, budget albums are a gift. There's a recording I have of a Canadian band released in the USA that it Arnold Layne of Pink Floyd... a song no one in the US had ever heard
Avatar 2:56pm Beany:

Do you have the any of the various Exotic Beatles CDs Darryl?
Avatar 2:56pm worldsworstrecords:

Hit Records were the Top Of the Pops or Avenue of 60s America
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Rich in Washington:

Hit Records: "Nashville-based label founded in 1962 by producer William Beasley which specialized in releasing cover versions on 45 RPM singles usually sold for a list price of 39 cents (less than half the price of the major label originals) in five-and-dime stores and supermarkets."

I have some Japanese Ska beatles stuff.

Right, that's your lot my friends... hope you've enjoyed this evening's (afternoon's) offering
