Sounds like Benny Hill meets Kraftwerk! My worries are almost over. . .Luv, Cam
that was a good moment to tune in
Hey, Cam, thanks for tuning in!
Great to hear your show!
"nothing ever happens to people like us, except we miss the bus"!
I know - so funny to tune in just that moment!
hey, thanks ~L! and Hi Vicki and seang and anyone else
Either you had a "Things go wrong" set coincidentally planned or you pulled all this together extempore. Whichever way, I'm impressed.
Hey Parq, the show is pre-recorded, so it's definitely not improvised:) The beauty of songs about things going wrong is that they often do -- be prepared!
yea it's Charlie!
Hey, I was going to say Yea, it's Charlie.
Yea, it's Charlie! (There, I said it.)
Yea, it's Michael! And Doug! Hi!
Hi Charlie. Thanks for the heads up email.
Oh sure, Jan -- thanks for tuning in.
Nice noises, Charlie!
Hi Henry! Long time no see. Thanks for listening.
Good Morning All -
This show is perfect for my miserable attitude today. A big shout out to my co-worker who has managed to make my job fantastically horrible.
Another glass half full, bartender.
Hey Jill, glad to be cheering you up a bit :)
Let us know who's bugging you, honey, and Busy Doing Nothing Nation will take care of busy-ness.
g' morning to Chariie and the assembled masses from here in CheeseLand!
ah, yes - Kelly Mark, now I remember... Excellent stuff!! all round.
I really should post a comment...
Hey, Lewis, how are you? I thought I was in CheeseLand here in Vermont! Where are you, Wisconsin?
where's Bad Ronald?
Little does she know that I have the power of music in my arsenal to help ease the distress - that and "Cats that look like Hitler" website provides comfort. Thanks for the Keith Moon, Charlie.
hey jill, this website Bread People will put a smile on your face
Charlie: You're Jewish, I never knew. You don't look it.
ha ha! and half sicilian! deadly combo!
yes - I am here in the Great State of Wisconsin... I do miss the east coast...
yeah the bread people site is quite silly -- http://breadpeople.tumblr.com/ -- my fave is still "bau wow"
then there's "Lesbians who look like Justin Bieber"
Wow, I can't believe I've never heard the Drifters version of this song... I only know it from the Donald Fagen solo album. That's pretty depressing...
Merv, I'd only heard the Fagen version myself until recently. Drifters record is from 1956. Dion also had a hit with it in 1962. The Donald's version is great too!
Whew-- I'm glad it's not just me...
"Take it easy, but take it." Who remembers the WNEW - FM DJ who used to say that on each of his shows?
Studs Terkel baby!
Really? Is that right? I never heard Studs Terkel's radio show.
Tom Morrera was the NEW DJ who said that - doing his late nite shows usually following Vin Scelsa - big Rangers fan
And who can forget the classic tag from McClintic Sphere -- "Keep cool, but care"?
seang is right. That was a signature line from the mighty Studs.
a ton of nice cuts today
Hey Gary, glad some of the cuts are making the cut! I'll bet you've got some Studs Terkel airchecks.
Do you have snow in Vermont?
You're right, but Studs was at WFMT; I was trying to remember which WNEW dj who used it, too. I think it was Dennis Elsas.
Monk theme song!
Couldn't pass up the Snoop Dogg version of the Monk theme song! (Gotta admit, I love Monk.)
I once spent the better part of a day with Tiny Tim. He once emceed a show I was performing in. I remember most a particular pungency about the man. Not sure if he ever bathed.
Snoop Dogg has been in a few great TV comedies playing himself and singing, on Monk, and on Weeds he sings a song about Milk weed, Nancy's designer pot.
Yeah, ~L, Snoop Dogg has a real sense of humor about himself. Great voice too, and a terrific rapper.
Doug, pungency or no, I envy you having spent a day with TT. He was a fascinating character. I have a biography of him that is amazing.
oh, that last comment was from me
Any excuse to play this song!
Hey everybody, thanks for listening and commenting today!
Listener Wolf emailed me an MP3 recently of track ("I Am Woman") by a character named Isadore Fertel. When I Googled him, I came up with Youtube videos of Fertel performing on Tiny Tim's cable access television show. Pathologically hilarious stuff.
Yip! Yip! Yip!
I saw Tiny in the card store when I worked on 72nd Street. He had a satin baseball jacket on and was buying some pens and was very particular about it.
I spotted him in that neighborhood once too! See you next time, all.
Hey, Someone is doing a book on this woman who wrote worried man...wait, I'm not sure if she did, but she wrote we shall overcome:
Listening was the best fun I had all morning! Good job Charlie!
thanks for the link -- i'll check it out -- sounds good!
and thanks, ~L -- glad you had fun. I did!
Great show Charlie - just finishing listening to it on the archive.
Hey, Bob, thanks for checking in!
Hi, Charlie -- sure hope you are feeling better. I'm trying to turn the tables on trouble myself these days. But today
it's Finnish Independence Day today or, as we call it in the Philo-Kat household, Finndependence Day -- yay! Moreover, and at least as importantly, it is the 15th Anniversary today of when Philo met kat on the interwebs (everybody clap! :) ! I'll be off-list listening now. Have a good one all!
Hi kat330! Nice to see you. I am feeling better, thank you. This week I have company visiting, so the guest room/gym/radio station is in guest room mode! But don't worry -- it will be magically transformed back to radio station mode in time for next week's show.
Heya Charlie, kat, everyone!
Hello all! Anyone else having buffer issues?
Yep, buffer issues here too. DJ Faye was also having trouble.
Hi Charlie, can't listen at work but noticed kat was here earlier so in case she gets back on the list later... Happy 15th, Hunaja! Sorry you slept badly last night, you should take a katnap today. I hope the aniversary roses are doing double duty lifting your bruised spirits! Always remember, I've got your back!
Happy anniversary kat and philo!
If he's around howdy Charlie. And hey to fellow time travelers.
