  2:10pm Jay Pemberton:

I don't remember where I read about the recycling of backing tracks used for a number of song-poem recordings at some companies....I wonder if anyone has examples of two or more different song-poem records that used the exact same backing track for all of them?

there is a WFMU app Beany, but it's not easy to use

IN the not-worst-record-world I just came along the "slip of the tongue"- EP by Imelda May. Some very good (intense, humourous, erotic) poems on sound and music. Well done stuff.

This sounds quite English

@PK - I do love me some Imelda May :-)

Hank Williams Jr.'s ode to Sarah Palin several years ago veers wildly into Song Poem level badness, but that's Bocephus for you.

Imelda's a hoot.

@Beany - I was just thinking that ... any relation to Nik?

Rick Kershaw and Rik Kershaw should do a duet.

Oh yeah Nik. that was it.

My favourite new album at the moment is the Man On Man lp... it's filthy!

I was aware of both of those facts, Beany ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My rock star memoir title is "I ran away from Robin Zander!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm MHLee:

the scam song is the John Warosa/Barosa song... and it's a meta joke... there was a scammer who originally contacted as John Barosa but on the next email responded as John Warosa... the guy who was dealing with the scammer now runs emails accounts those names to respond to scammers and add confusion
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - Maybe you can shape an individual arse cheek at a time? Lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

Rich: there's so much to learn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

You could have one perfectly shaped butt cheek, and one that's all wizened and flabby, and you'd have to walk into rooms sideways.

A friend of mine's dad once sent in a poem to one of those song-poem places. He didn't even get a pressed record--got a somewhat wow-laden single-sided 10" lacquer cut at 45 rpm with the finished recording on it. He hated it....

I'm in touch with John Trubee, the ultimate Song Poem troll. He's featured pretty prominently in the doc. He's still making music and trying to sell it, but it's more in a sardonic, Frank Zappa-esque vein.

I'm too *ahem* young to remember recording booths where you could press your own discs. Nowadays it is so easy with a computer. Where are all those potential WWR recordings now?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Beany - It's called "YouTube". Lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm Rich in Washington:

Oh yeah! Thanks for the reminder, Beany! I'm going to try to capture it, as sometimes those BBC things disappear or are otherwise unavailable outside of the UK.
  2:43pm Jay Pemberton:

Re some of the stuff from last week, I have the entire Clemency CD uploaded as mp3s (the $7000 migraine generator) as well as all the tracks from the Al Petty/Love Creative Concepts Steel Guitorchestra demo tape.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm MHLee:

@beany Tiny Tim apparently recorded tons of those and gave them to women... I really wonder how many unheard tributes still exist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My name is Karen??

OMG. A blind man’s penis is not erect because he’s blind!

Oh wow! This is something...

Thanks GG! 💗

I thought BBC 4 was about to no longer have original content?

it's still nonsense, whatever his name is
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Darryl - I've been watching too many "Karens in the Wild" videos. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Rich in Washington:

The documentary - with Derbyshire featured prominently - Sisters With Transistors is very good. Well made and extremely informative.
Avatar 2:45pm worldsworstrecords:

There was talk of that, Bri, but I think they had a rethink after people complained
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I have so much stuff to catch up on ...
  2:46pm Bri:

Good! I quite enjoy their documentaries
Avatar 2:46pm worldsworstrecords:

me too
Avatar 2:47pm Beany:

GG - I have yet to watch It's A Sin.
  2:47pm Jay Pemberton:

I saw a rant someone had about one of the BBC channels having nothing new to offer so they ran a repeat of a 1979 FAWLTY TOWERS episode.
Avatar 2:47pm Mr Fab:

Hey gang! Been listening all morn but super busy. My gawd, Ralph Lowe's "Funk With Us" really was the perfect white-man's overbite dance track. You could just hear the Member's Only jacket he must have been wearing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Beany - Same. I need a week off :-)
Avatar 2:48pm worldsworstrecords:

Fawlty Towers is currently on every week on BBC1
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Mr Fab! :-)
Avatar 2:48pm worldsworstrecords:

hey Mr F!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm Mx. Baba Bee (e/they):

hey, Bri, sending you lots of love. It helps me to remember that a diagnosis is a helpful framework for understanding the experience—not an identity. <3
  2:49pm Jay Pemberton:

I know of people who'd love to see them repeat Lena Zavaroni's 1979-1982 series!
  2:49pm Bri:

I think it’s great they air old shows!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm Rich in Washington:

What's that BBC radio series where they tell real stories, but with actors - they're little radio dramas?
They did one based on Pauline Butcher Bird's book about being Zappa's personal assistant and another on Delia Derbyshire. They're rather corny in the style of an American soap opera, over the top and not too great acting.
Avatar 2:49pm worldsworstrecords:

hah, I can't tink about 'Member's Only' jackets without thinking of Rosario from Will and Grace
  2:49pm Jay Pemberton:

Great if they leave them in their original form!
Avatar 2:49pm Beany:

I love Lena.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Jay - Oh, Lena. She was so lovely <3
Avatar 2:49pm worldsworstrecords:

I don't know, Rich
Avatar 2:50pm worldsworstrecords:

Daaaance!
  2:50pm Bri:

Fawlty towers is still hilarious, definitely more than any new sitcom
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm MHLee:

Oh this is awful
Avatar 2:50pm worldsworstrecords:

thank you, MHLee :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - Doesn't ring any bells .. Sounds like something I'd like tho!
  2:51pm Jay Pemberton:

I'm one of the co-mods of the Lena Zavaroni Tribute Fund Facebook group dedicated to her.

Thank you for yet another superlative show, Darryl! :-) x
Avatar 2:52pm Mr Fab:

that was just crap-tacular!
  2:52pm Bri:

Speaking of old re-runs, I’ve been watching a lot of old Top of the Pops lately
Avatar 2:52pm worldsworstrecords:

You're welcome, my lovely
Avatar 2:52pm Don-O:

I'll have to catch the rest much later. Mondo thanks for the.....disco....?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There is, quite literally, NO disco that I hate. None. :-)
  2:52pm Jay Pemberton:

Wow, that was horrid! What happened--the lyric was written on a matchbook, and only room for the word 'dance'? LOL
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Rich in Washington:

WHAT?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Bri - Ah yes! With all the gaps ;-)
Avatar 2:52pm worldsworstrecords:

c'mon everybody! Let's Penetrate!
Avatar 2:53pm Beany:

I must find that Jay. I found an LP on Darryl's patch Bristol with a signed inner sleeve by Lena.
Avatar 2:53pm Don-O:

Yup, crap, indeed. The non-boring variety!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm MHLee:

Oh yes, my favorite... dances that were two raunchy to catch on
Avatar 2:53pm worldsworstrecords:

Cheers Don-O!
Avatar 2:53pm Paper Kosmonaut:

Well, I DID do a lot of screwing today. Involved some penetrating too. And wood.
Avatar 2:54pm worldsworstrecords:

bwahahahaha PK!
  2:54pm Jay Pemberton:

Lena did an album in 1979 called LENA ZAVARONI AND HER MUSIC with a lot of disco tracks on it, and it's actually a good record!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm MHLee:

There's quite a few hunches... not just hasil adkins over the years
  2:54pm Bri:

What gaps GG?
Avatar 2:54pm Beany:

GG - now there is a challenge. Find one you really hate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Beany - It's a steep challenge ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Bri - various artists and DJs who later proved to be not at all decent human beings so the BBC don't show their episodes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm MHLee:

I find lots of horror shows on sketchy internet compilations
Avatar 2:55pm Beany:

I have lots of Black Lace and Jive Bunny records...
