Sounds like a nice press conference there.

... or WH staff meeting
  7:06pm disturbus:

so....Phil Minton for president?

Take THAT, laughing record!
Avatar 7:11pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

When did WFMU get so weird
Avatar 7:12pm Dan Bodah:

Good evening to the finest listeners a radio station could hope for.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Rich in Washington:

Kenzo, is it true that you're coming back for the summer, or did I hallucinate it?
Avatar 7:13pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

We both did, and I think it's true. Wednesdays 5-7pm on Give the Drummer Radio, starting, somehow, this week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm common:

Wow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I was on Kenzo's. You have to guess when.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Rich in Washington:

Oh my god. This is amazingly weird.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Webhamster Henry:

I was wondering if you were actually going to play this this episode.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Rich in Washington:

Dan, have you ever played The Kipper Kids on this show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

The power of Christ compels you to leave this squirrel.
Avatar 7:20pm Dan Bodah:

@Rich, tell me about the Kipper Kids, I do not know of them
Avatar 7:21pm Dan Bodah:

@Kenzo, great news!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Rich in Washington:

Amazing performance artists from the 70s/80s. with bizarre guttural vocalizations. Look 'em up on Ubuweb and check out 'Singing'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Rich in Washington:

Brian Routh still makes bizarre audio art and the other Kipper married Bette Midler.
Avatar 7:23pm Dan Bodah:

Wow, thanks! I see the page on Ubuweb, will definitely check those out
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Rich in Washington:

The Kippers were known for their naked, often scatalogical performances but their vocal stuff is really Vocal Fry worthy, IMO.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Rich in Washington:

WFMU and Drummer stream are just getting more and more amazing by the day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Webhamster Henry:

Check out their bits in THE FORBIDDEN ZONE.
  7:26pm Dean:

Love the Kipper Kids. Saw them a handful of times. They knew how to make an entrance, usually with explosives or power tools.

For vocal oddities, check out Shura Gehrman's recitals on his own Nimbus label. For example, Arie Antiche: http://www.norpete.com/v2386.html

Gehrman (born Numa Labinsky) had a deeply held theory of voice, and he spent his later years trying to recover his "first voice." He believed singers destroyed their voices by, inter alia, drinking too much milk.
  7:27pm Dean:

Interesting Kipper Kids datum: One of them, Harry Kipper (as opposed to the other one, Harry Kipper), is married to Bette Midler and used to trade commodities out of his office in Santa Monica. He even had a locally broadcast television show about trading.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Webhamster Henry:

Also, don't miss Shelley Hirsch on Ridgewood Radio, Give the Drummer Stream, Wednesday 3Pm right before Kenzo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Kat in Chicago:

Disco Duck is the only DD vocal that comes to my mind just now
  7:31pm Dean:

Oops. Rich already made the Midler connection @7:22. They were married even while the KKs were performing. Midler appears in a video easily located on YT.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Heil in Hitler's Face' w/ DD?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Rich in Washington:

The other Kipper was married to Karen Finley, so, imagine that.
There's also a good, cleaned up for family entertainment, performance by them on the Bette Midler cable special Mondo Beyondo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm mb:

hello Dan Bodah. Listening on an old radio with lots of highs and mids. Sounding good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Kat in Chicago:

The other Kipper married Karen Finley? I missed that! Knew about Bette.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Rich in Washington:

My wife, who's a Bette fan, bought that special on VHS, not knowing what it was. There's some pretty peculiar, albeit dated performance art on it, but the Kippers sort of freaked my poor sweetie out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Rich in Washington:

Brian's now married to a digital artist/Uni professor and lives in Yorkshire (I think).
Avatar 7:38pm Dan Bodah:

I like the idea of Karen and Bette hanging out together
  7:38pm Dean:

The other one is Martin von Haselberg.
  7:40pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hello dan and friends. I am making steaks and potatoes and asparagus today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Rich in Washington:

I gather they are somewhat estranged from one another nowadays, The Kipper Kids, I mean.
Avatar 7:42pm Cheyenne:

Enjoyin these here mellow vibez, Dan
Avatar 7:43pm Dan Bodah:

@BB, hi! @RR, I don't know the "Heil in Hitler's Face" song but I'll have to look. I don't necessarily need songs with the copyrighted character DD, just songs with vocals in that style...
Avatar 7:44pm Dan Bodah:

@Dean, thanks for the Shura Gehrman reference. I will check it out. Sounds akin to Alfred Wolfsohn a bit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Probably a SpikeJones that Disney did a toon of.
Avatar 7:46pm Dan Bodah:

Ah yes, I need to dig out the vocal moments of note from Spike's ouvre!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Webhamster Henry:

If you can dig up more Billy Costello, the original voice of Popeye, aka Red Pepper Sam, I'd appreciate it. Jack Mercer, the more usual voice of Popeye is also good, but I don't think he sang anything but Popeye tunes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Webhamster Henry:

"Der Führer's Face" is part of "Donald Duck in Nutzi Land"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Webhamster Henry:

OK, we now need helium sygyt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Kat in Chicago:

Here ya go en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar 7:54pm Dan Bodah:

Great suggestions all! Thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

What fun! More fun next week, please.
