Good evening everyone.
Avatar 8:06pm Becky:

Hi everybody!
  8:09pm P-90:

Howdy Ms. Becky. And all the Beckaroos out on the Radio Ranch...
Avatar 8:10pm Becky:

Aw, been a minute since I heard the term Buckaroos. Thanks, P-90.
  8:10pm Chonky Tonkin’:

Super hip so far, Becky!

Goddamn autocorrect.
  8:16pm P-90:

(attempted pun)
  8:16pm P-90:

I DESPISE autocorrect
Avatar 8:17pm JakeGould:

Auto-correct is great example of how basic AI in computers stinks.
  8:19pm P-90:

Also, you can’t edit or fix WFMU comments, like you can in other venues. If your a listener, your broken posts are immutable and eternal.
  8:20pm P-90:

*if YOU’RE a listener...*. see?
Avatar 8:23pm JakeGould:

This is a very Mad magazine kinda track… This “Sag, Drag, and Fall” that is.
  8:26pm Chonky Tonkin’:

The playlist feels very John Waters-ish. I love it!
Avatar 8:28pm Becky:

Thanks Chonky!
  8:32pm Life2Short:

Love this music! Thanks for all your hard work Becky.
  8:33pm Dave in Vermont on the phone:

Andy Griffith blew my mind in that movie.
Avatar 8:34pm JakeGould:

Andy Griffith was kinda a tool in that film, right?
  8:34pm Chonky Tonkin’:

What’s the name of the movie again?
Avatar 8:34pm Becky:

Right?! He's the best.
Avatar 8:35pm Becky:

A Face In The Crowd
Avatar 8:35pm JakeGould:

“A Face in the Crowd” www.youtube.com...
  8:35pm P-90:

A Face in the Crowd
  8:35pm Chonky Tonkin’:

Thank you!
Avatar 8:35pm Dano59:

Billy Wilder ... political allegory, uh, reality.
Avatar 8:36pm Dano59:

or was it elia kazan? kazan.
  8:36pm P-90:

Not Billy Eilder. Budd Shulberg and Elia Kazan.
Avatar 8:36pm Becky:

Elia Kazan. I'm going to name drop a Billy Wilder film in a few minutes, though!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm ultradamno:

Mama Guitar clip www.youtube.com...
  8:37pm P-90:

Goddamn autocorrect
Avatar 8:37pm Dano59:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm ultradamno:

I love Wilder. Baby Doll is my favorite Kazan.
Avatar 8:38pm Dano59:

sounds like Dino!!
Avatar 8:38pm On the Yazoo:

LoL .. sounds like Dean Martin.
  8:39pm Life2Short:

I really does
Avatar 8:39pm Dano59:

Celebrity Circle heh ... heh
  8:39pm P-90:

Mama Guitar is supposed to be a send-up of then popular “hillbilly” music like Elvis, Carl Perkins, etc.
Avatar 8:41pm Becky:

That version of Walk the Line marks the second Dino impression record I've played on this program.
Avatar 8:41pm Becky:

Not to mention the *actual* Dino record I've played on this program.
Avatar 8:41pm JakeGould:

Who doesn’t like a drunk Italian singer?
  8:43pm P-90:

Dino’s childhood idol was Tom Mix, and his earliest ambition was to become a singing cowboy in movies and records.
Avatar 8:44pm Dano59:

haha I know this film ...
Avatar 8:45pm Dano59:

I grew up loving Dino’s Houston....
  8:46pm Dave in Vermont on the phone:

This is some fat fuzz.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm officina:

Great show Becky !
  8:46pm Johnzon:

I just found $20 wooo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm ultradamno:

Second I Walk The Line I've heard on Woof-Moo this week, the other being an odd cover with unusual vocals by Rick Powell (from the Jungle Room) www.wfmu.org...
  8:48pm BH:

I made a calendar entry on my phone for the Ken Burns Country documentary on PBS next month on PBS so I don't forget it.
  8:49pm P-90:

Kiss Me Stupid is actually a pretty racy piece all around, in that slightly read-between-the-lines 1964 way
  8:49pm Dave in Vermont on the phone:

David Berman shoulda been a country singer. Or maybe he was.
Avatar 8:49pm JakeGould:

@BH: PBS is sure to only run that one time, so goo to know!
Avatar 8:51pm Becky:

I'll have an announcement re: the Country Music doc coming up soon!
  8:54pm Chonky Tonkin’:

This David Berman business really had me bummed out, @Dave. Drag City put out a really good obituary. Shit is so sad.
Avatar 8:54pm Dano59:

I really truly thought Dead Man's Cave was your intro to mentioning Ace in the Hole, Becky.
  8:55pm Dave in Vermont on the phone:

That Merle song reminded me of the last track on the Purple Mountains album.
  8:55pm Chonky Tonkin’:

Such sweet yodel background!
Avatar 8:57pm Dano59:

Dave in VT: first song I heard of DB's was country: Honk If You're Lonely.
  8:59pm P-90:

Thanks kindly, Ma’am
  8:59pm Chonky Tonkin’:

@dano my intro song was Smith and Jones
  9:00pm Chonky Tonkin’:

Thanks Becky!
  9:03pm P-90:

Well, this transports me directly to junior high school. A good/bad sensation.
