I’m saying something neutral on the air about MP cuz a lot of pals worship his 1960s library and studio stuff. Frankly, I find it kinda boring and picked this track bc the word “Bubblegum” was in the title and I didn’t feel bad talking over it.

The last show is fun, but it’s a bit emotional, too. I think it’s OK to share something that Fritz’ wife Janine told me after I played them the segment on Friday.

She said this show was especially emotional for them because that was the date Fritz’ brother Mike died four years ago.

So it was very sentimental for them.

No need to look above this here post. That other stuff is from the Beta Test of this programme, the “soft launch,” as it were. Also, if you take a peek I have it on GOOD WORD that you will turn into a pillar of salt. The real fun starts below.

Becky - good to do a TEST. See you there later
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm Becky Ebenkamp:

A little housekeeping… while the focus of this show is the conclusion of the Bantams’ story, I have a guest coming over this afternoon and I’m wondering if I should harangue him into the chatroom during another part of the show.

Brian Chidester has just produced an amazing exotica LP with the Swedish band Ixtahuele on the works of songwriter/artist Eden Ahbez (“Nature Boy”). He’s got a doc coming out on this enigmatic character, too. It’s a lot to go into, but you may have heard him on Gaylord’s show two weeks ago. The chat was really hoppin’! Let me know if you want more Brian and I will pull him in by his ear.

  7:40pm Brian Chidester:

Hi David... no pre-Cole recordings of it that have been discovered so far. There are some demos of other Ahbez songs that pre-date "Nature Boy" however. There is also a sheet music booklet of "NB" from 1946 which has the song in a primitive state---i.e. diff. lyrics, slightly different chords, very much in its germinative state. And the song was plucked by Cole from a six-part "NB Suite."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Becky Ebenkamp:

I think we may be bidding against each other, Robbie! I found a broken one only, so far!

original as far as know
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Becky Ebenkamp:

Thanks, Robbie. Yes, Follow Me and the other three sides I played were all original. One of them was recorded by another band but not well known at all.

Rockford Files!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Becky Ebenkamp:

OK, I have two copies of that Butterscott song. I do not own the 45. The one I have pictured says “Throwing meatloaf at the sun” maybe that’s the B side. Also, that’s a newer record!

I thought I was the only one who knew this track! Good find. And yes, it's "bubblegum", not "bubble gum"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Skinny Robbie:

Oh, and another two thumbs-up show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Becky Ebenkamp:

Shoot! Skinny’s answer came up on my screen first, but when I went to my song entry page, Izzy’s turned up. Well luckily I have TWO goody bags!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Becky Ebenkamp:

Do you have the record? Does it have a skip on that song? Mine does on TWO copies!
Avatar 7:58pm SF Sorrow:

There is no hesitation in the pronunciation! Bubblegum straight away. Cool show Beckky!
