Avatar 11:44am Buddha of Suburbia:

Morning Michael Shelley! Hi everybody! Great tune!
  11:45am Sean:

Anyone know who is playing bass on the Joe Simon track?
Avatar 11:45am Michael Shelley:

"The Chokin' Kind" is a 1967 song, later recorded by Joe Simon in 1969, written by Harlan Howard. The original version of the tune was released by Waylon Jennings in 1967. The single became Joe Simon's first number one on the R&B charts, where it stayed for three weeks. "The Chokin' Kind" was also Joe Simon's first top twenty entry on the pop singles chart.[1] It was also recorded by Z.Z. Hill in 1971, by Ella Fitzgerald on her Capitol Records release "Misty Blue," by Joss Stone in 2003 as the first track of her first album "The Soul Sessions" and as a single by Leron Thomas on the Heavenly Sweetness label.
Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 11:46am Moammar:

So no Joe South at all. What do I know. As for the bass, this from allmusic:

Recording at Music City Recorders with guitarists Mac Grayden (who co-write and co-produced Robert Knight's "Everlasting Love") and Troy Seals, bassist Tim Drummond, drummer Ken Buttrey, and pianist Bob Wilson, Simon and Richbourg ...

  11:53am Smoketown Joe:

Michael. Read the book "The Unofficial Guide to DisneyWorld". It offers suggestions how to visit the park for 1,2,3 & 4 day visits. Suggestions on what rides get busy, best time to not find long lines, best food choices, etc. It is a priceless tourist book. Have fun and don't forget to bring a suitcase full of cash
Avatar 11:55am Michael Shelley:

JOE - I have just returned the new edition to the library. You are 100% correct - that books is indispensable!
Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 11:55am Moammar:

Also the unforgettable essay by John Jeremiah Sullivan on how to enjoy Disney World on a family outing while really, really stoned. It's probably the only way to survive intact: www.nytimes.com...

@bmore Tom I think Marshall had a show on WFUV for a while
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:07pm Parq:

John, countless times. Me, on the other hand, I made it clear when my kid was young that the Magic Oligarchy was out. "But you have to!" another parent said to me at a party. "No, I don't 'have to', let's get that straight right now," I snarled back. "With all the videos and merch, the Disney people have gotten plenty of money out of me. I don't owe them a goddam thing."

Friend who went to the University of Oregon said he'd sometimes see Paul Revere & Raiders running around campus in their costumes.

Great harmonies - I always liked them.

Thanks for the advice. We were just pricing out a Disney trip last week....going to start saving now, maybe get there in a few years. Will be sure to go in the "off" season.

Totally agree w/your comments, Michael, esp re WFMU - all sorts of good things can open up when making money is no longer the insistent priority.

Michael, you seem like a great dad! I applaud your no TV rule. We did the same - our kids are now 27, 25, 20. Much better off than the little zombies I babysit for!
  12:29pm LCBD:

p.s. Have fun at Disney World!
  12:29pm Smoketown Joe:

Good Luck only spending $95 per day per ticket. I've been to DisneyWorld 3 times (in-laws retired to Florida) and I transform into a 6 year old when I pass through the entrance. The worst part is I don't even have kids, and I go nuts at Disney. Have a great time and take a huge wad of cash. You'll need it.
Avatar 12:32pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Thank you!!!!!!
  12:33pm gw:

I was there with a band that was performing in the 90s , along with PM Dawn among others . All performers were kept below ground where there are miles of tunnels . Over a few days we saw the cult like scene that employees are kept in . We were all allowed to wander the grounds except the African American groups , they were kept in their dressing rooms . Prince B left a nice graffiti on the wall of a nazi mickey mouse .
  12:33pm davefromtoronto:

Universal in Orlando is alot of fun. great rides.

If you really liked Cheryl you’d pay a bunch of Wyldlife. Whole show

On fire, Baby!
  12:53pm gw:

Yes Michael. It was a highschool grad thing going on , all white . They also insisted I wear a tie if I wanted to walk around so I purchased a hideous ny giants clip on . Our petite driver for the week confessed after a couple of beers that she also played mini mouse . The next day , in tears , she begged us not to tell anyone of her other gig there , she would be fired for revealing it .
I know the place can be entertaining but we saw the dark side after a few days inside . The tunnels below are something though , bicycles and carts whizzing around .
