Studio D minus? Hello all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm DanFA:

Howdy Becky
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Becky:

Alas, tonkies in the know may have recognized that this is a re-run. I'll hopefully be back in the saddle in Studio A next Wednesday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Becky:

But I'm here listening with y'all :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm loveless:

@coelacanth∅ Back atcha!
Avatar 8:05pm DocHollidey:

I'm all ears
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm Becky:

Dang, isn't this Kitty record spectacular.
  8:09pm P-90:

I can live with a rerun. I guess.
Avatar 8:10pm DocHollidey:

Our family watched Porter and Dolly every week religiously
  8:15pm P-90:

“intervention” ha!
Avatar 8:16pm DocHollidey:

No cure for that, lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm DanFA:

Becky, is the station still on lockdown?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Becky:

It is, DanFA, but only for another week, we hope.
  8:21pm DannyW:

I may have come across a Thurl Ravenscroft sighting on youtube.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm ultradamno:

I'm surprised these aren't coming at all pre-clickied, I do recognize the show..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Becky:

Oh, 100%, Danny!!
  8:22pm DannyW:

I hadn't seen this before. Is it new to you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Becky:

I hadn't seen that specifically, but knew he was the voice of Champy the Lion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Becky:

Breakfast the Feline
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm DanFA:

@DannyW I just watched it. I only wish commercials today were that odd. More puppets in commercials, please, Madison Avenue.
  8:26pm DannyW:

I guess he cornered that market
  8:27pm Will:

I used to say I was pretty tired of the whole recherche C+W thing, whatever form it took, and then along came Becky.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm DanFA:

Now if only he were a country music singing troubadour, it would be so much better.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Becky:

Haha, Will, I'm not sure what that means exactly -- but thank you, I think! Have been in the recherche business for almost 20 years around these NYC FM radio parts...
  8:30pm DannyW:

@DanFA It's amazing how much creepier everyday things were back then. Just search old kids in halloween costume pics
  8:32pm quinoa marley:

:toxic masculinity power hour" quote of the century
Avatar 8:34pm DocHollidey:

Definitely is country music, lol, wished I could have seen the original chat. Roy Acuff's work was based on Hawaiian dobro. GIs coming home from WWII were influenced and liked Hawaiian music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Lizchancey:

Here and ready to combat any toxic behavior!
Avatar 8:35pm DocHollidey:

They had "HIT" records in our local general/grocery store. Yes, I'm that old.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm DanFA:

@DannyW I found it charming, honestly. But I'm also a sucker for puppetry and muppets, so there's that.
  8:36pm Will:

@Becky: I mean that as the best possible flattery. Forcing me to hear Porter Swaggoner is a gift.
Avatar 8:36pm DocHollidey:

And Lou Reed got his start in the music business playing guitar on knock off copies of Top 40 hits for Pickwick in the 1960s. I think it's cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm Dano59:

Jack - no not that Jack White - is quite the mimic
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm loveless:

@DocHollidey Here's the first run playlist and comments. www.wfmu.org...
Avatar 8:40pm DocHollidey:

Thanks loveless!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Dano59:

being able to comment then and now on the same playlist - that's pretty recherche too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Dano59:

hey - 'Rock'n'Roll Til the Cows Come Home' right here!
Avatar 8:42pm DocHollidey:

Johnny Cash wannabe
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Dano59:

there's def. a subgenre of country songs that come right out and cop to copying the style of others (usually guitar playing, but singing too)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Dano59:

or style(s) - Phil Baugh's Country Guitar, Merle Haggard & the Strangers' Impersonation Medley, and anytime Bill Kirchen plays Hot Rod Lincoln these days...
Avatar 8:46pm DocHollidey:

Agreed Dano59
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm ultradamno:

If it were the other Jack White (at least solo) it would have about six minutes of artlessly insinuated flashy guitar runs shoehorned in there.
  8:48pm Itamar:

3:30 AM here in Israel, been on the road for 3 hours now.
Juat wanted to say thanks!
Keep it goin' Becky, it's been a terrific set so far.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Becky:

Thanks for tuning in, Itamar!
  8:49pm Cdub:

Great set.....scratchy, twangy n reverby. Cheers from up north.
Avatar 8:50pm DocHollidey:

Lifelong St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan. Dizzy Dean was an icon. Google it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Becky:

Thanks, Cdub and to all you tonkies!! Great to be a listener with y'all for once!
Avatar 8:52pm DocHollidey:

Becky, you are a country connoisseur
Avatar 8:52pm Destroit:

Thanks for hangin Becky, and i’ve quietly enjoyed the commenters, thanks everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Dano59:

back to a previous thread in February: what was that last episode of Cocaine & Rhinestones? I tell ya my first one, on Spade Cooley, scared the bejeepers outta me
  8:53pm Cdub:

Pre-recorded ya mean and your listening too? If so cool!
Avatar 8:55pm DocHollidey:

Glen Campbell was also a member of the Wrecking Crew. Could play anything, one of the greatest guitarists ever
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Becky:

When Glen died, my tribute show was all about his session work! What a genius.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm DanFA:

He's great in The Wrecking Crew documentary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm Becky:

Night, y'all. With any luck I'll be back with my scratchy-ass box o' rekkids live from Studio A next week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm Dano59:

I like the Keith Richards version. There's also one with Mick.
Avatar 8:57pm DocHollidey:

Glen was also in the Shindig TV house band with Leon Russell. I rank him with Hendrix, Clapton and the other greats.
Avatar 8:57pm DocHollidey:

Good Night Becky and everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm loveless:

And Glen Campbell couldn't read music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Dano59:

thx for hanging Becky. & tonkies
Avatar 8:58pm Destroit:

Take care Doc, i particularly enjoyed your comments!
Avatar 8:58pm DocHollidey:

Have a good night Destroit
Avatar 8:58pm Destroit:
