Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm Passaic River Blues:

This feels like detail-rich anti-Hibernian concept art. As a shambling Irish-American and noted starch glutton, I'll take three potato shakes and a commemorative limited edition poster.

I met Mickey Rooney at Santa Anita Racetrack.

How can that not be from Mad Magazine. Huh?
  3:08pm Last White Rhino:

Do fries come with that "potato" shake ????

While I'm disappointed that the Grand Royale does not come on a bed of hash-browns, but I still want to know the recommended wine-pairing.
Avatar 3:10pm geezerette:

that would be vodka...
  3:11pm Laura L:

Noticing the lack of hash browns scattered, smothered, chunked, and covered, Waffle House must have opened up down the street from Mickey's.

"The potato is the egalitarian: honest, without ostentation or pretension, plain in form, reliable in function, it'll make the most of hard land and it carries with it an intrinsic decency." - A.A. Gill
From a listener and member in Maine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Passaic River Blues:

The incongruities multiply like demons.

"Live Drumming Sunday Nights"? What does that mean? Eat six pounds of potatoes and watch a Mickey Rooney-led drum circle? Eat twelve pounds and Mickey'll pat juba until his hands bleed?

Also, "Happy ½ Hour"? Mickey, you cheap bastard.

It puts "would you like fries with that" in a whole new light.

Dan Quayle was a frequent customer of Potato Fantasy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm AnAnonymousParty:

It was one of Richard Feynman's faves, he always spent enough to scarf some free bread, and all the carbs gave him the stamina to beat on the conga drums for hours and hours.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Passaic River Blues:

Anyway, I want to shake the hand of this Clarington Shpoo character.
  3:16pm Dean:

Looks like the site of Potato Fantasy is now an elementary school.
Avatar 3:16pm Undead83:

Now I checked for a list of songs with 'potato' on the the title, and to my surprise there are plenty of good ones

There's a Maine novelty hit by The Wicked Good Band titled The Potato Pickin Song. A "re-hash" of Harry Belafonte's Day O.

I remember hearing the first Blondie record for the first time at the Virgin Records store near Hyde Park corner. When I returned home to California, I promptly acquired it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm AnAnonymousParty:

Walter Cronkite refused to eat at Mickeys because he considered himself a 'journalist' and didn't want to be seen in a place that served what were primarily just common taters.

Favorite Waits!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm zenundone:

at what point does potato fantasy become potato obsession?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Irwin:

When the Waits song started, there were ten (10) clickystars from previous airings. When the song finished, there were nine. Someone unclickystarred the track. Ingrate!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Ken From Hyde Park:

did not expect that
  4:23pm andrewb:

Pretty sure a fellow named Bob Moss has been writing the Sesame Street music for ever. Oscars original is one of the best but this is a nice one too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm Stevel:

One of the great moments of my experiential musical life was being at the Indy 500 (as a photographer) the year Steven Tyler sang the national anthem. Never a strong fan, it was an impressive and perfect interpretation, given Mr. Tyler's services had been requested.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm Carmichael:

Who has fear of beer??? Really?
  4:35pm Dean:

You can't get any more goddamn heteronormative than Frank Sinatra and The Mentors.

Puts me in mind of Isotope with Gary Boyle, a species of fusion that leans toward rock.

Freezing in this damned studio, Mo. Curses.
  5:30pm andrewb:

@Dean. You made me all nostalgic for the Mentors whos "heteronomativety" seemed much more of an act compared to Old Blue Eyes. Though it's hard to think of a more macho death than being hit by a freight train.
Avatar 5:31pm dale:

hello dere. been painting outdoors all day and i come home to my house at 83 inside. music and a cold cocktail makes it betterer.
Avatar 5:31pm dale:

..and is the potato fantasy lounge for real?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Michael 98145:

no beer fear here
  5:33pm Dean:

@andrewb: The Mentors' "Woman from Sodom" genuinely embarrasses me when I (rarely) play it. OTOH, I giggle every time I reflect upon the stupid pun that is the title of their "You Axed for It" album. [Giggle.] Alas, I never saw them, but I did see Fear at Al's Bar when El Duce made a guest appearance.
  5:35pm Dean:

A listener on Jeff G.'s show this past weekend nominated Carla Bley as a candidate for a set devoted to living greats in lieu of waiting for a post-mortem tribute.

That Carla Bley piece was wonderful. I have a lot of her music but I don't think I have that.

Avatar 5:50pm geezerette:

Wayne Shorter turned 85 last week, I think. Still here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm Irwin:

  5:51pm Dean:

Jeff's playing of Shorter tunes in honor of his birthday prompted the discussion about greats who are still with us.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm maestroso:

Thanks, Irwin. I think I must acquire it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm Irwin:

Marshall Allen, McCoy Tyner ...
  5:52pm Dean:

Seems to me a mash-up on Mary Wing's show featured Balanescu, the violinist on this track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm Michael 98145:

well, thank you again, Irwin
  5:55pm Dean:

Others mentioned Threadgill, Braxton, Dave Holland...
