It is produced by David Weinstein and Outpost Artists Resources operating out of the Ridgewood section of Queens, NY, where you'll find more yellow bricks than on the road to Oz and the cemetery of your choice is never more than a few blocks from home.

hi peeps
Avatar 9:44pm weinstein:

Hi Mel
Avatar 9:44pm coelacanth∅:

i realised before that i've known very little about Ken Nordine, even though i've been familiar with his work for around 40 years. i don't know if i've ever heard him in an advertisement, despite wikipedia saying i probably would know his voice from that.
...he's 97 years old and "still active". that's awesome.
......there's a dvd that i really want (& i have bought <10 dvds/movies in my whole life) but it's $25.+ sh, which i cannot afford. ("the eye is never filled")
oh well.
Avatar 9:45pm weinstein:

Great to know someone else appreciates him
Avatar 9:46pm coelacanth∅:

oh hell yeah! thank you for playing him!
Avatar 9:53pm coelacanth∅:

- and Thanks for playing Joe Cocker. i don't remember why he came up but i mentioned on these comment boards, maybe early this year, that i liked some JC, and several regular commenters declared with a good deal of smugness how terrible he is, like "of course he's terrible! everybody knows he's terrible!"
...i think it's a matter of being close-minded because of the shmalzy stuff that turned into radio hits.
Avatar 9:55pm Little Danny:

Happy Thanksgiving all! It's coma season around here and I'd encourage everyone to drift aboard with me next on the Cool Blue Flame: wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm doctorjazz:

Always liked Joe Cocker as well, that was a really great track of his.
Avatar 9:58pm weinstein:

Thanks all and hang info Danny up next . Til wednesday

Thanks David, and Ruth!
