Good snowy (or not) morning to everyone.
  11:11am melinda:

There was a public radio talk show out of Boston in the 90s that had Cantaloupe Island for its theme music, I recall it fondly because it relieved the tedium of my office job. Positive vibes!
  11:13am melinda:

I agree, some scat rubs me the wrong way too, like L H and R.
  11:16am melinda:

This is fun snow music.

Yes, total snow music. Feeling the feeling. And scat, wow, right there with you on LH&R. Whew.

Pilot channeling Todd Rundgren, seems a bit like.

I miss the boot cut corduroys of the early 2000s, before skinny pants took over.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22pm Otis Fodder:

So do I melinda... straight leg here. Need to find a good pair at the thrift, hard to find good ones that are not beat/worn out.

Hi Otis and friends of Friendly Persuasion. Aww, Bowie...this how to start off the day, eh? I bought my brother an Aladdin Sane air freshener for his birthday last month. Yes, such a thing exists.

Avatar 12:36pm Martinibomb:

Avatar 12:38pm Mr Fab:

Was this set inspired by GeorgyGirl's show yesterday, all Joy Divisions, and OMDs and whatnot? Or are we just in one of those moods to dip back into our Noo Wave youth?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Otis Fodder:

Just one of those moods... ebbing and flowing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Otis Fodder:

Microphone took a crapper, figuring out issue while we hear background music.

Was curious about Stewart Brodian, so looked him up - he works as a Howard Stern impersonator!

ha, or setting animated cartoons to Derek n Clive recordings.

I love Dudley Moore's soundtrack work from the 60s + his Piano Jazz LPs. Fav soundtrack, "30 Is A Dangerous Age, Cynthia!"

This one always cracks me up. Whenever I go to a restaurant with pie, I always think/say... Piece a pie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm Rich in Washington:

I know. It's infectious that way. I used to play bits of it over my work's public address system around holidays when they'd put a variety of pies out for us.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Otis Fodder:

In the backdrop, if someone is not paying attention it 'could' sound just like OTR radio... but oh no, it's from another Joyce Dimension of sound!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Rich in Washington:

I think Don-O or somebody on the OTE FB group posted the original radio play and it's wonderful that Don J. just fixated on the Pie/Hamburger guy and blew it up. It's so wonderfully Dada.
Avatar 2:53pm Mr Fab:

Ah, the "No Business" box set, one of the very last things I purchased at a Tower Records. Still got it, whoopee cushion and all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm Rich in Washington:

I often like to leave Mr. F LeMur's PR Gnus on at work. From afar, it sounds like I listen to NPR when people pass by but then I am laughing my ass off for some reason.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm Rich in Washington:

I feel bad that I never actually bought this one. I think I ripped it from the radio station's copy. I sort of struggle with how to store awkward CD packaging.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm Rich in Washington:

Great show, Otis! I'm gonna go right back and listen to the beginning as soon is it's out of the archive oven!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Jan Turkenburg:

Most enjoyable show! and thank you for the Osmond cover! Cheers, Otis!

No question mark on the album for 'who's on first'. Title as bland as the recitation.
