Hey Linda! I'm good. You?

Hey Aitch and Hopey!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Linda Lee:

ok, thanks! glad you're doing well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Linda Lee:

what an incredibly talented man, though. multi instrumentalist, arranger, comedian. just a marvel.
Avatar 7:05pm worldsworstrecords:

absolutely, Linda... a genius
Avatar 7:05pm spacebrother:

This is the 1959 re-recording of Louis J
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Linda Lee:

apparently *really* footloose, too. lived out of a bag for a while there.
Avatar 7:07pm spacebrother:

Somewhere I have an interview with Gaillard where he talks about getting left in Egypt for months after he missed his ship.
Avatar 7:07pm Martinibomb:

Heya Spacebro!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Linda Lee:

really! wow.
that actually sounds quite wonderful at this time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Linda Lee:

this set swings!

Hey there MB!!

Hasil Adkins called and he wants his Chicken back!
Avatar 7:09pm spacebrother:

Oh, don't worry, the show will de-evolve as we go!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Linda Lee:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Linda Lee:

this track's lovely! amazing sound.
Avatar 7:11pm spacebrother:

@ MB - LOL. I don't have Adkins chicken songs this time.
Avatar 7:11pm Martinibomb:

The Five Du Tones - was just reading about how big they were during that time when everyone was into "dances" in the early 60s which is the period my parents grew up in and I know how much they just loved doing the monkey or whatever they were into as kids It was fun!
Avatar 7:12pm Martinibomb:

the "dance" craze of the early 60s!
Avatar 7:13pm Martinibomb:

I remember thinking when I was a little kid how cool all that was and then I got to Jr. High dances.. I mean it kinda sucked for me in the 80s no cool dances at all. I guesss that's why I was the DJ! Hah
Avatar 7:14pm spacebrother:

@ MB - I didn't go to any dances. I was chicken. Of girls. And public contact in general.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Linda Lee:

we *loved* dancing in the 80s! clubbing was life! we were older, though. in our 20s.
Avatar 7:14pm Martinibomb:

I suppose break dancing is as cool as it got for my generation. Busting out the cardboard in yer early teens was pretty fun and silly
Avatar 7:15pm Martinibomb:

@SB I doubt I'd have been into dances much I happened to fall into "DJ Club" in Jr. High and we'd Dj all the dances - kinda jump started my dj career/sampling - I'd make crazy cutup tapes that I'd play lol I was really into tape and razor blades
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm Linda Lee:

beautiful! :-) we'd love hearing those@
Avatar 7:17pm spacebrother:

This kind of skirts PC norms.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

My mom made me aware of the song Chicken Baby, Chicken when I was little as she used to sing it whenever we had chicken for dinner :) It was one of those dance craze records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Linda Lee:

now: what the Stones would be if they were American. ;-)
Avatar 7:22pm spacebrother:

@ Linda - LOL!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Linda Lee:

don'tcha think?
Avatar 7:24pm Martinibomb:

oh my gawd I love that spot
Avatar 7:26pm Martinibomb:

Next week - an entire show of just Hasil Adkins chicken songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

I was hoping you would play The Hen House Five Plus Two.
Avatar 7:27pm spacebrother:

@ Hopey - That's it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Aitch:

Hoping for theme from Superchicken which has just risen unbidden from my memories
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Aitch, dang you just stirred that memory for me as well!
Avatar 7:30pm spacebrother:

@ Aitch - Good one! Didn't think of it. Surprisingly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Aitch:

Japanese guy singing in German about chickens and yodeling. How is this not the greatest thing ever? (Well for today anyway.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

This is amazing. I only just realized he was singing in German.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Hopey Sockmonkey:
