Hey, Bill.

Best Wishes Sem. Did you make chollo again this year. Please excuse spelling this blessed nexus is determined to be predictive.
Avatar 5:48pm Brian in UK:

Talking of predictive,, I used to work with a guy who said he could contact people departed. Said he was a medium, swear he was a large.

Wow another year come and gone. Good to see the usual stalkers and layabouts are still here! Happy New Year to you all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Stanley:

Hi chums. Bill your selection has to compete with the obligatory Jools Holland Hootenanny show. So my request to you would be to step on the gas around midnight (that's 7pm for you) and I'll swing into action
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Excuse me a moment while I train my fingers to type 2016: 2016 2016 2016 2016 2016 2016 2016 2016 2016 2015 2016 2016 2016
There we go. Next, I'll pull out pen and paper and get myself trained for writing the correct year on checks.
Avatar 6:24pm Bill Mac:

@Stanley - The plan is to step it up a bit... 35 isg minutes to swingtime!

did you really start at 5:30? i think i'm unfashionably late.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Stanley:

Ever since Flash Strap started his show I'm so into the exotic side of things. Like this cool tune
Avatar 8:11pm Bill Mac:

@Ken Isn't there a whole aisle dedicated to that? Right next to the tape aisle.
Avatar 8:13pm coelacanth:

'm into "exotica" just a tad more than i ever was; but Flash is indeed a blessing.
- V! Happy...!!

Good to know! It's great stuff!

  8:19pm V Priceless:

I really need to complete my Ultra Lounge collection.
Avatar 8:19pm Bill Mac:

The Art Director thanks you, Carmichael
Avatar 8:20pm Bill Mac:

VP, I dunno how many CDs there are, but I have 20 of them and there all pretty dang gud.
  8:23pm Carmichael:

@vp, I have the CD called UltraLounge, it's awesome. Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Yma Sumac ... I wear my smoking jacket while listening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Stanley:

We had Tom Jones on the teevee this evening. Good to see he's looking younger than ever. The Sex Bomb that he is.
Avatar 8:27pm Bill Mac:

.... and he continues to make cool music. I'd much much rather see him on TV rather than Tony Bennett.
Avatar 8:32pm coelacanth:

wonder if Skip James was still around when this came out?
  8:34pm V Priceless:

@Bill: I could never keep track of them all either, and I only have 4 or 5!
@Carm: that sounds cool! I have a disc by the same name, but I think it's a comp of the Ultra Lounge series..,Martin Denny, Les Baxter, etc. cool raised bamboo jewel case package with plush tiki head on cover and retro style artwork within. Woo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Stanley:

Hooray for this
Avatar 8:36pm Bill Mac:

Stanley: I'm so glad your awake brother!
Avatar 8:36pm Bill Mac:

@VP It's a great set, but my two faves are TV Toons and of course Organs in Orbit
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

  8:38pm V Priceless:

Yep! Organs in Orbit is swell!

There was a film about the Comedian Harmonists some years back.
Avatar 8:52pm coelacanth:

"explorer's den"! i like it!
there was a room in our house that the kids weren't allowed in,called the den. my parents had got a lounge chair,desk,dark red shag rug, a globe and some antique ships' navigational devices in there...and all their records,some books and a tall cylindrical trash can that my dad had pasted naked ladies all over!
they didn't want the kids or the dogs messing it up.
...he had exotica but i never heard him play it. i had to discover it when he wasn't home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Stanley:

Great show as always, Bill. Here's to 2016, good health and happiness to you and Maxine. And hoping to catch you on the airwaves again soon.
