Hank Kimball, looking as confused as ever.

Hay there DJ Fool's Paradise. That fur lined reverb sounds even better fresh from the vine. Thanks for the subversions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/16/17 1:22pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Henry Wadsworth "Hank" Kimball, best county agent role in TV history right there. Well, not RIGHT there.

Back in my day all we had was Ford....so we just walked everywhere :)

Well now I guess that puts being on the cover of the Rolling Stone in perspective now doesn't it

Morris, Ok would have been the metropolis it was meant to be if it had only had the sense to locate on highway 75 like Okmulgee did.

Afternoon, Fools!

I remember Pete and Gladys actually - haven't thought about it in decades
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/16/17 1:39pm Gaylord Fields:

@Ken From Hyde Park: And by "right there" I don't mean to say that it's wrong here, just that a right there is the same as making a left here—well, not left as in left behind, or any part of the behind...

What was I saying? Oh, right...
  Sat. 12/16/17 1:41pm Nancy:

Yay!! Mr. Kimball !! :D

I love goth girls, amazons and rockabilly Bettie's. They add spice and danger to life. Love it!

Great Soulful take on Tipitina there, Rex.
  Sat. 12/16/17 2:10pm Elias:

Hank Ballard was on To Tell The Truth?!? I'm gonna have to see that one. It may rival the Bill Gaines appearance!
  Sat. 12/16/17 2:14pm johnk77:

...in a way - TheWho finally help pioneer 6' amps w/ Marshall was a sad end to people pushing their little gear beyond the max...As Nietzsche said: stare too long into the Garage Single - & it stares back into you...

Hey Rex, if you tell us what's in the cocktail, we can play along at home. Right everybody?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/16/17 2:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Could there be any doubt there is an abundance of WeirdoGospel? I'm sure there's gotta be some seriously misdirected & unhinged stuff out there...if that's 'Novelty' exactly...
Avatar Sat. 12/16/17 2:43pm ndbob:

excellent show Rex!

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/16/17 2:47pm Gaylord Fields:

@Revolution Rabbit Nov63: And those aren't even "Christian novelty" records in the way there are "Christian rap" and "Christian metal" records — they're real-deal novelty songs about Christ!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/16/17 2:50pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...well - the theology is that Mary & Jehovah's boy was a one-off...
