we had a lonzo and oscar album or two when i was a wee spud. LOVED the wacky cover with the oversized instruments and clownlike outfits.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/10/15 7:06pm dale:

country comedy time was one. is may the bird of paradise fly up your nose on that?
  Mon. 8/10/15 7:07pm finerwhiner:

WITHOUT LOOKING IT UP, can anyone name Dizzy Dean's baseball-playing brother?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/10/15 7:08pm pacific standard simon:

Daffy, right?
  Mon. 8/10/15 7:09pm finerwhiner:

Yep. Don't think he made records.
Avatar Mon. 8/10/15 7:10pm Becky:

@dale Don't think that was on Country Comedy Time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/10/15 7:10pm pacific standard simon:

How about some Geezinslaw Brothers?
  Mon. 8/10/15 7:13pm finerwhiner:

Becky doesn't care for 'slaw.
Avatar    Mon. 8/10/15 7:17pm sweeks:

Yep, totally killin' it

I wasn't here last week because there was a conflict with a Giants game. Had to listen on the archive.
Avatar Mon. 8/10/15 7:19pm Mailman Tom:

Thank you, Honky Tonk Radio Girl. You know how to rock!
Avatar Mon. 8/10/15 7:20pm Becky:

Thanks, Mailman Tom!!

Autographed, yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/10/15 7:28pm pacific standard simon:

No slaw, plenty kraut.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/10/15 7:29pm JakeGould:

My view of this show this week is it’s not rocking hard… Rocking smooth…
  Mon. 8/10/15 7:30pm finerwhiner:

Trubert!

Man I love these answer records. There seems to be so many of them in classic country
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/10/15 7:33pm adrian in mpls:

i forgot about this gem - so good!
  Mon. 8/10/15 7:33pm marc:

The response the Roger Miller's "Dang Me"?
Avatar Mon. 8/10/15 7:34pm Becky:

@marc, you've hit the nail on the head, as it were
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/10/15 7:38pm JakeGould:

@sweeks: I say it was a trend from the heyday of 45 singles in the 1950s and 1960s. Lots of those response songs exist outside of country.
Avatar Mon. 8/10/15 7:40pm Becky:

@JakeGould I think you're right. Lots of R&B ones, too!
Avatar Mon. 8/10/15 7:42pm Becky:

But also, lots of songs written from a distinctly male perspective that begged for a female answer, and a few vice versa!
Avatar    Mon. 8/10/15 7:43pm sweeks:

Definitely. It does seem that most of them are back and forth between male and female singers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/10/15 7:45pm JakeGould:

@sweeks: Either that or it’s some kid berating teenage issues and then an “answer” from their parent explaining why they have to be an over-beraing d-bag to their own child.
Avatar Mon. 8/10/15 7:48pm pzolla:

Great show today, Becky!
Avatar Mon. 8/10/15 7:49pm Becky:

Thanks, @pzolla!!
Avatar    Mon. 8/10/15 7:50pm sweeks:

Every heartache/breakup song needs a response song. It's only fair...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/10/15 7:50pm JakeGould:

Ditto what pzolla said. Bravo, Becky!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/10/15 7:51pm pacific standard simon:

I used to have a girlfriend who sang "House Of The Rising Sun" -- not like this, though.
Avatar Mon. 8/10/15 7:51pm pzolla:

Who produced that Loretta Lynn track btw?
Avatar Mon. 8/10/15 7:52pm Becky:

@pzolla Owen Bradley.
  Mon. 8/10/15 7:53pm Loretta's fan:

Ms. Becky I love your show. XOXO

Great, as always, Becky.

The “Boogie Bear” answer song is about a “Howling Hound.”
