Man. What a sad bit of news. I didn't learn of his passing until the evening yesterday after I got home from work. I started crying during "Sunday Will Never Be Same." I can't claim to have known X-Ray Burns. To those who knew him well and loved him, my heart goes out to you.

Kudos and thanks to WFMU for being possibly the most real form entertainment out there.

Hello Joe et. al,
Did you know that FMU's own Seven Second Delay had an episode way back where they tried to reunite a 'one hit wonder' band? They ended up tracking down the lead singer from the Cyrkle, and getting him to sing part of "Red Rubber Ball" Here's a link to that episode from the archives (it's from 11/06/2002) Enjoy!

Mikey K.:

For what it's worth, here's a lazy cut and paste about what "bippy" means. I missed what you said about someone whose last name is Buzzio. On Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, there was a comedian named Ruth Buzzi. Maybe a connection there?
Anyway keep on truckin', brother. Hang in there!

It's from Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, a zany television show from the late 1960s.

The word bippy, by the way, means “butt.” The phrase “You bet your sweet bippy” is a linguistic descendant of earlier versions that go back to at least the 1880s, when phrases like “You bet your sweet life” were commonly used.

BB King was on American Experience this week and Buddy Guy was on Austin City Limits. Bono was talking about he and Edge explaining the chords to Love Comes to Town to BB, and BB quietly interrupts him ‘Fellas, Fellas ... I don’t do chords.’

a little late on the bippy thing, but one time drinking lucky lager in college early 90s, I ended up with a rebus under the cap that nobody could figure out. Years later with the help of the internet I found out it was "You bet your bippy": thismatters.net...

I saw BB King in Syracuse back in the 80's. The crowd was pretty rowdy.
