Lost Media Archive Surprise Fill-IN! 45's galore, so many random 45s!
Avatar 2:01pm Mr Fab:

kudos for hopping on so fast with the fill-in!

tho this is not disco dynamite
Avatar 2:03pm Mr Fab:

there we are! Or where. i def heard some disco for a sec.

Nobody is listening and he approves of this comment.

Hello random listeners :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm WR:

Wish I didn't have to go into a meeting now, like the idea of voting songs on or off. I vote disco dynamite off. Careful don't tear it.
Avatar 2:07pm Mr Fab:

nah, i liked it! The slightly wobbly, off-center sound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm WR:

I'm undecided about this teddy bear song.
Avatar 2:10pm Mr Fab:

These records are so short, i can't even hate 'em, they end so soon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm WR:

In their favor is if they are short they can finish and be gone before the poll closes. LOL.
Avatar 2:10pm Mr Fab:

Although this one is pretty corny...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Kat in Chicago:

I'm here for whatever randomness ensues. Until someone at work asks me another question that I've already answered 1000x
Avatar 2:11pm BC Sterrett:

I can't promise these songs will be winners
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm WR:

Yes, thumbs down on Artic Enterprises.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm Kat in Chicago:

I listen to World's Worst Records archive every week, voluntarily. terrible is interesting to me
Avatar 2:13pm Mr Fab:

organ demos all get thumbs up from me
Avatar 2:13pm BC Sterrett:

So far I've never played any of these records
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:13pm WR:

You only promised randomness which is in the eye of the Beholder so you are totally an innocent bystander facilitator. The recordings must face us on their own merit. Blah blah blah.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Rich in Washington:

This is fun! Been listening from the kitchen while hustling up some grub.
Avatar 2:17pm BC Sterrett:

BC why are you on a fly? Are you really that tiny right now that you can ride a fly????

Haha, I thought that would make an early exit.

Skwawk how a bout a happy ending big boy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm Franco Twinkie:

This was a brilliant solution to not been prepared for the show BC. Play all the records in that big box marked TRASH.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm Rich in Washington:

I never expected such navel gazing introspection from Mr. Moose.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm Kat in Chicago:

I actually love "Maybe Tomorrow" but not the cereal box version so much

OMG, Linda Lee! I never noticed how much Mr. Moose sounds like Artie Choke!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm zivilars:

I would sell this vinyl on Discogs as "M-"
Avatar 2:26pm Linda Lee:

and he's just a joke! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm Rich in Washington:

I've gotten to love skipping records, unless it's some pretty song, but I don't play a lot of pretty songs.
  2:26pm solo mon:

Lol I want to watch that mukbang lobster video to this
  2:26pm VaL:

so much skipping BC!
  2:27pm TVP:

"You see? You see? Your stupid Minds! Stupid! Stupid!"
Avatar 2:27pm Mr Fab:

that skipping effect was cool. Like if Steve Reich made kiddie records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm Rich in Washington:

I can still see this claymated version of Bozos in my head. I've I ever become a deranged millionaire, i'm going to pay someone to make it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm Franco Twinkie:

This I would save from the fire pit.
Avatar 2:27pm Linda Lee:

or Brion Gysin!

It seems like Captain Kangaroo was made for sticking.
Avatar 2:28pm Linda Lee:

please do, Rich! perfection!
  2:28pm solo mon:

Don’t get rid of this record BC
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Rich in Washington:

God, this is nuts, BC!
  2:28pm solo mon:

It’s like a lobster strip tease!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Rich in Washington:

This is extra nightmarish for me as I plan to come back as a lobster.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Rich in Washington:

THere can be a whole show, NAY, a regular radio show devoted to 'Music To ___ By' records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Franco Twinkie:

A green cottage cheese aspic shaped like Bozo.
  2:29pm Martinibomb:

Ah the theme song of Sheena - thanks BC
Avatar 2:30pm Mr Fab:

"lobster strip tease" - Ha! You'll have to add that scene to "Bananadu."
  2:30pm solo mon:

Gritty Green Cottage Cheese
Avatar 2:30pm Linda Lee:

oh BC! this was my favorite hit tune as a little radio fan in the 1960s! i saw my future clearly for sure.
  2:30pm solo mon:

Will do Mr Fab!
Avatar 2:31pm Mr Fab:

Does not suck at all! Like Martinibomb said, it's like a Sheena's theme song. "If it's square, we ain't there."
  2:31pm Martinibomb:

heh heh this record kind of sucks lol
Avatar 2:31pm BC Sterrett:

ha ha, sorry

"Music To Shave By"??
Avatar 2:33pm Linda Lee:

  2:35pm solo mon:

Oh what!!! Linda Lee ooopsie dooodles : - )
Avatar 2:35pm Mr Fab:

not my favorite version of The "In" Crowd tho. The best versions ore by lounge cats like Jack jones.
Avatar 2:36pm Linda Lee:

it was pretty damn funny.
i did intend to chat with you, solo. alas, i'm an idiot. :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm chresti:

Whoa LL, beware the wrath of Pseu!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm Franco Twinkie:

How about some facts about shaving with a dull razor?
Avatar 2:36pm Linda Lee:

i'm just a doofus. what can we say
thankfully i had some friends on the board, who attested to my fine character.
gotta love my radio family!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm Rich in Washington:

I've done that, LL. I have a given stream on on my TV's media player independent of the computer I type on, so occasionally lose track of what I'm commenting on.
Avatar 2:37pm Linda Lee:

i swear to you, i will get more sleep from now on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm chresti:

Astrionics reminds me of histrionics.
Avatar 2:38pm Linda Lee:

that sounds complex, Rich!

Things are so much loooser here on sheenas too, I have to remember to check it on the other streams. I didn’t even know about getting put in time out until granny mentioned e got a warning once lollll

I love that weird LP called The Frog Pond, where there's two older gentlemen with thick North East accents narrating frog field recordings.

ive' actually had amazing luck with dumpster diving. that was some time before our market chains got hip, though. now they lock them up for spite. they'd rather pay by weight for removal.

She was an oddball Jesus freak for sure, but there was a sincere heart under all that

HA! I don't necessarily hate the Dead, but one of my blurbs on my first KBOO show declared my show a Grateful Dead Free Zone and it sort of irked the station's clique of Dead Heads.

Thanks, Kat. Har! LL!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm chresti:

Yeah Granny, hope the wind changes up there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Rich in Washington:

I then rebutted it with subsequent blurb stating that while I didn't have anything against the Dead, I felt like KBOO listeners should have a safe place to go.

Rich in Washington: don't mess with the KBOO Deadheads!

Rich: i really really tried to like the Dead. I TRIED. I am DONE.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

The Slightly Twisted Disapointer Sisters, on the other hand…i would follow THEM!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm Rich in Washington:

I was just this morning wondering how KBOO's Grateful Dead collective is going to work around the station's recent edict on diversifying playlists.
Avatar 3:19pm Linda Lee:

hey now!!!!!! this i can get behind. no more madonna!! this reminds me of a long, long ago conversation between my friends & i .. believe it was williamsburg, 1985 .. a heartfelt discussion of why madonna's music was crap.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

Rich, "Some of mybest friends are Deadheads!" (It's true! That's why i tried so hard)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Kat in Chicago:

Rich, there was an official edict on diversifying playlists?
Avatar 3:20pm Linda Lee:

you youngsters don't remember how .. ubiquitous this girl was. i mean, ... everywhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Rich in Washington:

I would imagine folks like Ann Magnuson and other Dowtown NY scenesters would have a lot to say about Madonna's rise to stardom.
Avatar 3:20pm Mr Fab:

Ha, terrible song but I love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Kat in Chicago:

Oh, they would, they would.
Avatar 3:21pm Linda Lee:

well she was really.. just a line dancer wasn't she .. with the voice of the 4th Chipmunk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

BAM! LL!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm Rich in Washington:

I just remember her gloming onto the underground Goth/Punk girl look and running with it, sort of dressing like a blonde version of Lydia Lunch.
Avatar 3:21pm Mr Fab:

And how ‘bout Madonna swiping Exene’s look?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

OK i see we have a consensus
Avatar 3:22pm Linda Lee:

it was mystifying. 'Material Girl' was also so obviously in praise of the 'greed is good' Reaganite mindset .. & we now know how healthy *that* was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Rich in Washington:

Yeah! Exene for sure!

“She’s totally ripping off strawberry switchblade” - my goth friend in the 80s about Madonna
Avatar 3:23pm Linda Lee:

i'd rather join The Charlie People.
i mean, the newer ones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Kat in Chicago:

Yep, opportunist. Never was a fan. Well, I like Borderline.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

The 80s was a weird time to come of age, I can imagine it's similar for the youth today. Crazy world!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Rich in Washington:

Yeah, LL! She seemed to embody that sickening 80s Reaganitis thing to the max.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm chresti:

Madonna-blechh
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm Rich in Washington:

Kinda young, kinda wild, Charlie!
Avatar 3:24pm BC Sterrett:

Huh, this one...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

i did learn lots of choreography watching Madonna videos
Avatar 3:24pm Linda Lee:

she really did. instant allergies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm Rich in Washington:

I woulda totally played this during my Anniversary of the Summer of Helter Skelter show years ago, had I known it existed!
  3:25pm solo mon:

There’s a couple of jellybean produced tracks that are great. The music at least. And I kind of love the rave hippy / William orbit Madonna it’s just really nuts it will be have appeal in the future I swear.
  3:25pm solo mon:

Please keep Charlie
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

Rich i need to hear that! I was born exactly between Helter Skelter and Woodstock, on the day of Sharon Tate's funeral
Avatar 3:25pm Linda Lee:

'when you face yourself with Charlie'.. ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Rich in Washington:

She was good at dancing. Some of her singles sound good today. I just think she was a mediocre talent who knew how to parlay it into something.
  3:26pm solo mon:

Parlay! Good word
Avatar 3:26pm Linda Lee:

i've always loved Ken Nordine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Kat in Chicago:

Oh yeah, I like some of the William Orbit stuff but that's because William Orbit.
Avatar 3:27pm Linda Lee:

'truth .. with dirt on its face.'
the only kind there is..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

Charlie's a keeper! Ken Nordine is always a keeper!
  3:27pm solo mon:

Yeah Kat I’m a big bassomatic and torch song fan too. Water from a vine is also beautiful!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Rich in Washington:

Granny: Myself and my pal Dr. Zomb did a whole two hour show of assorted Beatles, Manson, PTV, etc., mixed with interviews related to the Tate LaBianca murders, trial, etc, wrapped around The White Album. I'll post the link on the Sheena FB page.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

Ken Nordine needs to be in the Sheena's tarot!
Avatar 3:28pm Linda Lee:

absolutely right, Rich.
& she's an example, or not.
  3:28pm solo mon:

Hi Dad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Kat in Chicago:

I love Torch Song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Rich in Washington:

Oh weird. Lyrically, this is similar to this odd record I have called What Is A Disc Jockey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm Kat in Chicago:

Ooh, I want to hear What Is A Disc Jockey.
  3:30pm solo mon:

Oh speaking of Manson I recently listened to the 10 plus hours of “you must remember this podcast” on Manson and Hollywood. So much better than the Tarantino movie and there’s not even any visuals!
Avatar 3:30pm Linda Lee:

i'm back to work, kids. love.
Avatar 3:31pm BC Sterrett:

Back to Work LINDA!!!
  3:31pm solo mon:

Ever seen Adam and Kanye at the same place at the same time?
Hello, BCS, and the Lost.
Avatar 3:33pm BC Sterrett:

Thanks Solo Mon! Just got this Adam West record in the mail finally.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Rich in Washington:

I recently redid my record wall in my 'studio' and my sweetie keeps turning my copy of LIES - The Love and Terror Cult around so Charlie's beady black eyes aren't looking at her when she comes in.
Avatar 3:34pm BC Sterrett:

Hi Sem :)
  3:34pm solo mon:

Funny drop there Adam West
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

Rod McKuen! Of course! And Tiny Tim!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Kat in Chicago:

I have definitely heard Miranda on World's Worst Records
Avatar 3:37pm Mr Fab:

For throwing this show together in no time at all, you did a spectacular job, BC. This has been swell.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Kat in Chicago:

Yes, this has been super entertaining!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

this reminds me of the time my middle school was called into the gymnasium to hear a band play covers of top 40 songs of the day
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Rich in Washington:

This is a lot of fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Rich in Washington:

I've recently gotten a soft spot for cheapo covers of popular songs, like those Sounds Like records, Mirror Image, etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

Rich: there's a toe zone street sign that always looks like the eyes of Manson to me. I know i will have finally lost it when they start communicating with me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

TOW ZONE
  3:41pm solo mon:

I say throw it on the floor and stomp on it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

this cranked up cheerfulness really gets my toes a-tappin!
  3:41pm solo mon:

LOL GRAN Charlie’s watching
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

totally. i'll show you the signs and you will never not see it, MANNNNNNN
Avatar 3:42pm BC Sterrett:

I was just reading the Cookie Mueller short story about meeting the Manson girls but not Charlie she was not kind about them hahaha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm Kat in Chicago:

HA! you weren't kidding, Granny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm Rich in Washington:

I was experimenting with a print technique at my dayjob so made this giant wrap print of just Manson's eyes from the Life magazine cover and now it's hung over the door of my office. No one knows who it is and they keep asking me but I refuse to tell them.
  3:44pm solo mon:

GRANNY OMGXXX
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Rich in Washington:

I'd love to read that, solo mon! I love Cookie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

right?!?!?!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Rich in Washington:

OH WOW, Granny!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

Charlie is watching, mannnnn
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

it actually upsets me, sometimes
  3:46pm solo mon:

Piggies gonna tow your car, mannnn.
Avatar 3:47pm BC Sterrett:

Ugh, I start teaching college next week
  3:47pm solo mon:

Rich, You can borrow. Warning: There are a couple stories that are legit horrifying tho and made me cry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Rich in Washington:

I can imagine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Kat in Chicago:

I bet Bob Hope and The Lettermen were just terrific!
Avatar 3:49pm Linda Lee:

and then.. they found marijuana.
  3:49pm solo mon:

Sorry BC
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

yeah, when you look closer, that Manson scene was not funny at all. But i'm GenX from the 90s, and we all thought that was super entertaining back then, eh?
Avatar 3:50pm Linda Lee:

just had to duck in again to ask: this man's name is Ronda?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

We'd all join hands and sing "Garbage Dump" in twelve-part harmony
Avatar 3:50pm BC Sterrett:

Only 10 Minutes Left. Gotta make it good!
Avatar 3:51pm Linda Lee:

'is Gas your real name?'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

BC! You can do it! I'm loving this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Rich in Washington:

yeah, Manson was a garden variety sociopath who wandered into a vulnerable scene and exploited it. He was racist, misogynistic, and exploitative of others to the nth degree. Sick to see some people express adulation for him today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

What Rich said. Well put!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Rich in Washington:

Wait. He reminds me of someone... Hmmm... WHo could it be?
  3:52pm Martinibomb:

Sounds just like my neighborhood at 1:30am
Avatar 3:52pm Linda Lee:

there's also some opinion that he was an intel asset meant to continue destroying the counterculture.
  3:52pm solo mon:

Tarantino should have made the film about what would have happened if Charlie would have gotten the gig as one of the monkees.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Rich in Washington:

HA! Which one, Martinibomb?
Avatar 3:53pm Linda Lee:

even worse to develop adulation for an intel asset than for a garden variety psycho, i feel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm Rich in Washington:

Long before OUATIH I imagined an alternate reality where Manson's song Look At Your Game Girl was a huge hit.
  3:54pm Martinibomb:

@rich Going/Swan Island they always drag down it at night - and drive thru the hoods in their clanky non-compliant cars
  3:54pm solo mon:

Lol at this song who cares? Thumbs wayyyyyyy UP
  3:55pm solo mon:

The swan island speedway
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm Rich in Washington:

yeah, I guess street racing and drag racing are big right now because police are laying low, since Covid isn't a thing they can shoot in the back while it's running away from them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

i cross the Bay Bridge in the wee hours of the morning and it's like the Indy 500
  3:56pm solo mon:

What a dumb world. It’s like a trashy version of fast and furious
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

ooh, this reminds me of Fred Lane's "The One That Cut You" i think Fred LAne needs to have a card in the Sheena's Tarot
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Rich in Washington:

This is wonderful!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Rich in Washington:

yes! Fred Lane!
  3:58pm Martinibomb:

Yes! Fred Lane Please good idea
