Avatar 6:00pm Don-O:

Goof Hello, everybody!! Merry Damned April Day!!!(?)
Avatar 6:01pm Mr Fab:

no, June. April March is a while 'nuther person. Hey, Don-O!
Avatar 6:02pm spacebrother:

Back from errands. Listening!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Oh wow, I was looking at that archive page last week. Looking forward to this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm Otis Fodder:

Lookie here! Very happy to hear a full hour of April !! Drinks before dinner this Friday!

Don-O!
Avatar 6:03pm Don-O:

Hey, Rich! This is what you (might have) missed in LA in the early '00's.
Avatar 6:06pm Mr Fab:

i love how she was supposed to say "More stimulating talk radio" but would just mumble it. One of the things the station hated about her.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm Rich in Washington:

I did actually listen to Leykis in the mid 90s for some reason. I was sort of limited in what I could listen to at work at the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:11pm Otis Fodder:

This coffee catastrophe is excruciatingly brilliant!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:11pm Rich in Washington:

That was wonderfully awful!
Avatar 6:12pm spacebrother:

I mentioned that I bought some of April's old home-burned CDs when she was selling them on ebay about 10 years ago. I should dig them out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Otis Fodder:

We need to ask April to send us the cut for the Sheena's Jungle Room 24/7 stream and Fab, program it so it airs in the mix every 6 hours please.
Avatar 6:13pm Mr Fab:

ha! Absolutely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Otis Fodder:

I want this guy's whole catalog, fantastic. I'm been a lost sheep wandering for so many years... until... now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm Rich in Washington:

Oh yeah. There should be a April collection.
Avatar 6:14pm spacebrother:

@ Otis - Definitely.
@ Fab - Is she still thinking about having a show on SJR?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm Rich in Washington:

Especially this track. It really drives it home. Like a hammer and number four galvanized nail right to the forehead!
Avatar 6:15pm Don-O:

Even Sheena is setting the Room on fire!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Rich in Washington:

For some reason this reminds me of the bad radio announcer demo tapes that Richard Lyons of Negativland used to collect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Rich in Washington:

BTW: It's also Richard Lyons' birthday today, as well.
Avatar 6:17pm Mr Fab:

She is, spacebrother! Don-O and I were interviewed by The April herself (and host Marc Germaine) last night:
www.talkradioone.com...
I was quite thrilled.
Avatar 6:18pm Don-O:

Merry Damned Birthday _____ Dick _____ !
Avatar 6:19pm Mr Fab:

April contributed a horrible album of her father's to Otis Fodders' 365Project, hosted by WFMU's blog:

Avatar 6:20pm spacebrother:

@ Fab. Listened to it. I was in tears during the "Wing over the traffic report" segment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Rich in Washington:

Was that show over broadcast radio? How did you listen? I tried looking for a stream when it was live but it didn't seem to be working.
Avatar 6:22pm spacebrother:

CHILI JOHN'S IS HEAVEN.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

gelatinous!
Avatar 6:24pm Don-O:

Fab just posted the link to the show. The TRO interview had archived the show about an hour after broadcast and you should find it there....to listen to and download.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Rich in Washington:

I did listen to it this morning. I was just curious how folks listened to it live.
Avatar 6:25pm Mr Fab:

yes, you could listen live. The big thing in the upper right corner that said "Listen Live" but it was actually just silence until the show actually started.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

WOAH.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm Rich in Washington:

Wow! This is a great story!
Avatar 6:26pm Mr Fab:

Chili Johns is a classic noir-era joint. Killer chili.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Rich in Washington:

Ah. That makes sense, Fab. I tried tuning in on multiple devices a few minutes before the show and assumed it didn't work.
Avatar 6:27pm spacebrother:

Kick ass story!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

this is so good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Amazing story
Avatar 6:28pm Don-O:

I can see a Drunk History episode out of this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Guess I'm going to have to check out Chili John's!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm Rich in Washington:

God, this is hilarious!
Avatar 6:35pm Don-O:

If you want more April, she's on twice a month on former Mr. KABC's (Marc Germain) show on Talk Radio One.
  6:35pm TheNewLexGofer:

This is delicious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Rich in Washington:

yeah, I dug that show. I had no idea what's she's up to lately, so I will definitely tune in more. It was quite funny and interesting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Otis Fodder:

God, this is all so funny. Cracking up here.
  6:43pm TheNewLexGofer:

I remember watching "Winchell Mahoney Time" before we moved back to Ohio. And this is Paul Winchell's daughter!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm Otis Fodder:

April did, she played Bran Flakes (has it really been almost 2 decades)?

I really REALLY hope she jumps on Sheena's with a show. Whadda place huh with all these nutty DJs!
Avatar 6:44pm Mr Fab:

Yep, she is Paul Winchell's daughter. And boy, does she have stories.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

She would certainly be a good fit with all you nutty DJs :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Rich in Washington:

I loved her Regretsy project.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Rich in Washington:

What's the final word on The Day The Clown Cried? Did it get buried with Jerry? I thought there was some kind of declaration before he died that it would eventually be screened.
  6:47pm TheNewLexGofer:

God, she's brilliant! I must hit the archives and pick this show up from the start...
Avatar 6:48pm Don-O:

We're gonna have to wait 10 years AFTER Jerry's death to see anything from the movie! Whatta exit plan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Rich in Washington:

Is that what he did in his will?
Avatar 6:51pm Don-O:

No, his made an arrangement with some film library and that was the condition. WHAT the HELL is he hiding!?!
Avatar 6:52pm geezerette:

!!! April Winchell!!! Yay!!! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

only 8 more years!
Avatar 6:53pm geezerette:

Granny, nice avatar!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Rich in Washington:

I read a pretty good interview with him shortly before he died. He just said that it's really terrible and is ashamed of it and just doesn't want it to be subjected to needless ridicule. Something like that. He didn't defend it beyond he had money and production problems with it, sort of admitted he was in over his head.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Otis Fodder:

Thanks Don-O for the Hour of April!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Rich in Washington:

I have a feeling we'll be watching it in some rubble strewn landscape by then, keeping an eye out for roving Amazon hunter killer drones.
Avatar 6:56pm geezerette:

Rich, whilst foraging for food.! :)
Avatar 6:57pm Don-O:

More "shuff" to come, thanks to Rich! www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Rich in Washington:

I've got half a tin of Dinky Dee Dog Food? What'll you give me for it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Rich in Washington:

Great show, Don-O!
Hey folks, if you're up for it, join me next door right after this show at www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Rich in Washington:

JINX! Thanks, Don-O!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Otis Fodder:

Oh geez, can't stop cracking up with the Jerry Lewis flashback bits.
Avatar 6:58pm geezerette:

Hey LAY-DEE!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm Rich in Washington:

I know! These are great!
  6:58pm TheNewLexGofer:

Thank you, Don-O!
Avatar 6:59pm Don-O:

I hope this second impersonation makes the cut before the machine cuts her off.
Avatar 6:59pm Mr Fab:

Where/when did Lewis actually say "Hey ladyyy"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm Otis Fodder:

Everyday at home to his in-care home/help I'm sure. Heyyyyy laddeeeeee bring me my slippers!
