Heya Rich! Looks like an Xmas special maybe?? I played 2 xmas songs on my show today

hey Mr F!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Rich in Washington:

Oh man! This is incredible!
Avatar 2:05pm worldsworstrecords:

Oh Yes... 100 percent Christmas catastrophies
  2:07pm Martinibomb:

Why are the "terrible" christmas songs a 1000 times better than the popular ones?
Avatar 2:08pm worldsworstrecords:

That's a very good question!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Rich in Washington:

@Martinibomb: I didn't know it was your week on Freeform. I tuned in and thought it was the DJ you alternate with. Dang.
Avatar 2:08pm Mr Fab:

Mrs Fab once sent all the way to New Zealand to get me a Wing CD way back when.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Rich in Washington:

I'm playing some terrible and wonderful Eechs-mas songs this week as well.
  2:10pm Martinibomb:

@Rich yeah alternating wednesdays right now.. though it kinda worked out because now I have more time for Sheena's
  2:11pm Martinibomb:

I can only make Worlds Worst Record show every other week
Avatar 2:11pm worldsworstrecords:

Mrs Fab has excellent - if expensive - taste
Avatar 2:13pm worldsworstrecords:

That's ok Mr Bomb... I can't always listen in live to every show, but I try to stream later
  2:14pm Martinibomb:

"daddy likes little boys." Wow! yeah I try to listen to the archives if I miss but I like being in the chat room with everyone
  2:15pm Martinibomb:

what was that sample you just played? I recognize it but can't place it.
Avatar 2:17pm worldsworstrecords:

Oh.. dunno. Which bit?
  2:18pm Martinibomb:

Something from a british tv show I think?
  2:19pm Martinibomb:

I think you played it right after M&O band
Avatar 2:20pm worldsworstrecords:

That was Laurel and Hardy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm Rich in Washington:

Wow. just wow.
Avatar 2:21pm Mr Fab:

Ha, i love frog vox. SO much music could be improved with frog vocals!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm Rich in Washington:

This is my official xmas song this year. So true.
Avatar 2:22pm worldsworstrecords:

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to find that funny or not...
  2:23pm Martinibomb:

oh Laurel and Hardy oh man it sounded new out of context but no wonder It was familiar
Avatar 2:25pm worldsworstrecords:

Can't remember the name of the short... is it Big Business? It's the one where they're selling greetings cards door-to-door
Avatar 2:25pm worldsworstrecords:

Anyone else agree with me that was Rodd keith?
Avatar 2:26pm Mr Fab:

Rodd Keith with a hick accent? Could be. He recorded in a lot of styles, but dont recall much country.
Avatar 2:27pm worldsworstrecords:

He does a Christmas song (ho ho ho, here's good old Santa... ) with exactly the same voice
Avatar 2:30pm worldsworstrecords:

Santa Claus Goes Modern, that's the name of the track
Avatar 2:31pm Otis Fodder:

Hi Darryl and hello everyone! I have just 30min in-between work on a break here to listen. Will check out archives tomorrow for the 3 Wed Shows. Oh man, look at that playlist... Troy Hess to Culturcide, yea!!
Avatar 2:33pm worldsworstrecords:

Hey Otis! Thanks for checking in!
Avatar 2:33pm worldsworstrecords:

I was quite friendly with Troy Hess for a while... he wanted me to edit his biography
Avatar 2:34pm Otis Fodder:

Love that track, 'Santa Claus Goes Modern'. Yo La Tengo do a great version too, does anyone else love that too?
Avatar 2:34pm Otis Fodder:

A Troy Hess memoir?!? Please don't go bookless mother.
Avatar 2:36pm worldsworstrecords:

hahaha! that should be the title!
Avatar 2:36pm worldsworstrecords:

I need more wine... BRB
Avatar 2:37pm Otis Fodder:

I just only know like maybe 2 or 3 songs from Hess. Would love to hear, more and read about him. On that note, planning on ordering your books after the holidays Darryl (on my list my friend)!
  2:38pm Martinibomb:

Where can I find Darryl's books?
Avatar 2:38pm Otis Fodder:

Amazon - www.amazon.com...
Avatar 2:38pm worldsworstrecords:

That's kind Otis. Troy made some amazing records, mad stuff when he was a kid. Sadly our political views are at odds!
Avatar 2:39pm Otis Fodder:

That happens quite often in this day/age, political views. As long as others are not harming others, I'll keep the records/files on my shelf.
Avatar 2:39pm worldsworstrecords:

Cheers guys! I agreed a contract last week with Omnibus for my next book, and the last one, David Bowie Made Me Gay, is coming out in paperback in the States in April
Avatar 2:40pm worldsworstrecords:

Oh sure... I still have the records, I just couldn't work with him
Avatar 2:40pm Otis Fodder:

Oh gawd, Newsong, my ears, nope no water in my ears, it's the music. World's Worst indeed! Ha ha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Wow. That was ... Wow. lol
Avatar 2:40pm Otis Fodder:

Regarding Troy, totally understand there. How could we get rid of Please Don't Go Topless Mother?!? Oh my.
Avatar 2:41pm Otis Fodder:

Hi Georgy! I'm going to miss your show today but will listen tomorrow and get my library fix with my Martinibomb PDX Local Bands fix.
Avatar 2:41pm worldsworstrecords:

Of his nutso Blue Yodel #9
Avatar 2:42pm worldsworstrecords:

Hey Georgy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hello, lovelies! :-)
  2:42pm Martinibomb:

@otis thanks! Just added them to my want list
Avatar 2:42pm Mr Fab:

Was all of Troys' stuff recorded when he was a child?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That sounds like the Railway Children theme underneath ...
Avatar 2:43pm Otis Fodder:

Darryl, quick question and good to ask here. Is there a better way to order your books than Amazon? As in, direct or an avenue where you receive the most $$.
Avatar 2:43pm Otis Fodder:

Now, that Cary Grant track was very nice! Def not worst, great for any Xmas mixtape.
Avatar 2:44pm worldsworstrecords:

No, it's all the same... Amazon or your local bookstore, I get the same cut
Avatar 2:44pm Otis Fodder:

Cool, gotcha!
Avatar 2:44pm worldsworstrecords:

Agreed Otis, but a perfect Singing Actor disc
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44pm Rich in Washington:

Mr. World's Worst Records, you're the best!
Avatar 2:45pm worldsworstrecords:

Oh, thanks Rich... appreciated!
Avatar 2:47pm worldsworstrecords:

Very non-PC, but I love it!
Avatar 2:47pm worldsworstrecords:

The Smurfs were big business in the UK in the mid-to-late 70s, but there was a major panic over lead paint being used on the models
Avatar 2:48pm worldsworstrecords:

"...they'll fill a lot of coffins with little girls and boys"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm Rich in Washington:

Imma go run some errands but will be listening to all of this on my phone. See you all on the flipper floppers!
Avatar 2:50pm worldsworstrecords:

Cheers Rich... thanks for dropping by!
  2:50pm Martinibomb:

cya later Richey boy!
Avatar 2:56pm Otis Fodder:

Love Tiny Tim. What a nut.
  2:56pm Martinibomb:

One of my fave Tiny Tim songs! That guy was way ahead of his time. It was not okay to make fun of AIDS then..now people make fun of it all the time. What a bad azz

Jebus! $200 smackaroos
Avatar 2:58pm Mr Fab:

The song on the other side's called "She left Me WIth The Herpes!"
Avatar 2:59pm worldsworstrecords:

I know... mega rare, but that's taking the piss
Avatar 2:59pm worldsworstrecords:

"She left Me WIth The Herpes" is ace too

That's it my friends, thanks again for keeping me company
