Ok, but I signed in so I wouldn't have to do math. But once the beat picked up I now like 7/32 of this.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39am
Bob W.:

The image of Bob and Ray was lifted from the video (which I played on air) on YouTube. I first saw it as part of an exhibition about beer in NY State a few years ago at the NY Historical Museum.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58am

What is this bed music after the Bud commercial?

Aw, too bad, Bob W. I was hoping to see again the Piels coasters I hadn't seen in 50 years. Why do families always get rid of stuff like that? The only one whose caption I remember went: "Coasters? I thought we were posing for posters." "Smile anyway, Bert."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01am
Bob W.:

Bed music is Bert Kaempfert, "That Happy Feeling."
Avatar 11:09am

but only 58% of all people know that glenn

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49am

Shouldn't he be singing about Island Boys?
Andy the painter:

hey bob. I remember when you played this Elton john song awhile back and we talked abt you hearing it on the car radio with yer folks back in the day and realizing it was about a prostitute.
Avatar 11:50am

Andy the painter:

ach. took too long typing....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53am
Bob W.:

That's right! I did play it before. So many songs from youth on the car radio that I had no idea were about sex, drugs and the like!
Avatar 11:55am

i give today's program a rating of 17, which is pretty damn good

Loving the show Bob. For a sec I thought Elton was singing "I like girls" not "island girl"
