Hello Larry and fellow primates!

Mr Teeny does not approve but Dr Zaius is intrigued. Grape Ape sends his regards.

Hey Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm Funky16Corners:

PRAY FOR MOJO...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm Matt from New Orleans:

Hopefully they’ll be no George Michael
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm Funky16Corners:

None whatsoever, ever...
Avatar 3:12pm Erica:

Sorry I'm late. I had internet problems.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Funky16Corners:

Erica!
Avatar 3:13pm Erica:

I heard this one on Aquarius.
Avatar 3:13pm Sem:

Summoned by the prospect of tails and ribs.
Hello, Karry, Groganites, all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Sem!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - Which one, where?
Avatar 3:14pm Sem:

Hey *Larry*!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Matt from New Orleans:

El Monkey perhaps? Love this Andre Williams produced track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Funky16Corners:

I don't have that one
Avatar 3:16pm Erica:

I heard the Spats song on the TV show Aquarius Larry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Matt from New Orleans:

It’s a hard one to find. Ran-Dee was not the most prolific label.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Damn, I missed The Dickies.
Avatar 3:18pm Erica:

So did I Hopey. I had internet problems.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Hopey!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - That's WILD! It's a pretty obscure song unless you grew up in southern California in the early 60s
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Hi Larry! I am SO into today's theme :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Hopey! I hope you dig it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Matt from New Orleans:

Dig The Chimpanzee
Avatar 3:29pm Jeff Ash:

Oh, hi again, Carl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm Funky16Corners:

I had to go for the repeat on this one
Avatar 3:30pm Jeff Ash:

But of course! All good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm Funky16Corners:

I wish I knew who the organist was
Avatar 3:34pm Erica:

Yeah the show only lasted for 2 seasons due to time slot difficulties but it had a really good soundtrack.
Avatar 3:34pm Erica:

Sorry for the delayed comment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Funky16Corners:

That's OK
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Matt from New Orleans:

Why are there so many Shandells? Confusing trying to keep them straight as none were a success.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Funky16Corners:

I only know the one
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Erica, was that the David Duchovny series from a few years back?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Funky16Corners:

The one about Manson
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Matt from New Orleans:

There were a few garage rock bands from the 60s with that name.
Avatar 3:39pm Erica:

Yes Hopey it was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Ahhh, I'd heard good things about it at the time but never got around to watching. I'll have to check it out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Funky16Corners:

Remember to click on the pledge banner if you are so inclined! WFMU could use the clams!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm WR:

I may or may not be a monkey's uncle, but my understanding is that humans are primates too so this show is by primates, about primates, for primates. Same order but different species.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Funky16Corners:

I will accept your scientific expertise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Funky16Corners:

And, hello WR!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm WR:

LOL, no expertise here. 95% of the "information" i share in the comments is either what I read on discogs or Wikipedia. The other 5% is based on vague memories of past experiences decades ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Matt from New Orleans:

Jackson, MS. Johnny Vincent as always based in Jackson. He would do sessions at Cosimos until he built his own studio.
Avatar 4:01pm Jeff Ash:

THANK YOU, SIR!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Funky16Corners:

NO, Thank YOU, sir!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Matt from New Orleans:

Sorry that wasn’t as clear as I meant it. Both the band and Johnny Vincent were based in Jackson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm Matt from New Orleans:

You can thank Jeff Hannusch and/or John Broven
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm Funky16Corners:

I have Jeff's books
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm Funky16Corners:

Cameo scatting by Phil Harris!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm WR:

And hello to all testifies today. And I testify that I've not seen this animation of Jungle Book. So many great people in it. I repent and add it to my active want list.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm Funky16Corners:

It's a lot of fun. Much more than the recent live action/CGI remake
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm Matt from New Orleans:

There’s an Ace Records marker on the Mississippi Blues Trail in Jackson. More than I can say for Louisiana’s sorry efforts to celebrate its musical heritage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm Funky16Corners:

For Halloween fans, this appears on the soundtrack (with the band peforming it) in the movie Two On a Guillotine
Avatar 4:16pm David Shortell:

So far I see a lot of songs about monkeys and apes. Aren't there any songs about lemurs, tarsiers, pottos or bush babies?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Funky16Corners:

Probably in Indonesia, Burma and the surrounding vicinities.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Funky16Corners:

Though I wouldn't put it past Raffi to have songs about all of them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm Mike Sin:

Random question -- were there any monkeys featured in "The Planet of the Apes"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm dutchtheo:

Larry's Dilemma, Alan Price was the organist with Carl Perkins...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm Funky16Corners:

That's very interesting indeed, because Monkeyshine butts right up against the 45 that Carl made with the Nashville Teens! It must have been recorded in England!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Funky16Corners:

Thank you, Theo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Mike! Do you mean REAL monkeys?
Avatar 4:30pm David Shortell:

@Mike Sin
No, just 3 of the 4 genera of apes: gorillas, chimpanzees and orangutans. Gibbons were omitted.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm dutchtheo:

Alan Price was in Nashville... adp.library.ucsb.edu...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm Funky16Corners:

Wow! That's an interesting development!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Funky16Corners:

I wonder if Price was there on an Animals tour?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm WR:

And Gary I will accept your record collecting and programming expertise.!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm Mike Sin:

Interesting -- So, the "Model Shop" soundtrack actually saw a 1960s release on Ode? I thought Sundazed just finally compiled all the Spirit tracks from an old reel and released it in the 21st century.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm Funky16Corners:

I'm not sure. I just posted it that way because that's where it originated. I pulled it from a Spirit comp.
Avatar 4:46pm David Shortell:

That Louis Prima song from Disney's "The Jungle Book" is performed live by NJ's Junk Rumblers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm Funky16Corners:

BTW this is Babe Ruth covering Frank Zappa!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm Funky16Corners:

@David - I'd like to hear that!
Avatar 4:47pm Brian in UK:

I'm gonna stick to you like Monkey Wrench Glue. Bill Wyman?
Avatar 4:48pm Brian in UK:

Do Mandrills get a look in here?
Avatar 4:49pm Erica:

Aww I only have 12 minutes left :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

The Kinks! Great choice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm Candy-O'67:

I've been tuning in the whole time, been busy working! Great show! Love the theme!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm Funky16Corners:

@Brian - I should try to put together a show of monkey/ape named groups!
Avatar 4:49pm Jeff Ash:

Been waiting for "Ape Man."
Avatar 4:49pm Brian in UK:

I went to the same skool as the brass player, think his name was Brent Carter, from memory.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm Matt from New Orleans:

Are you going to explode Erica?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Candy-O! Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm Funky16Corners:

@Jeff - I had to include it!
Avatar 4:50pm Jeff Ash:

Well played, all of it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks Jeff!
Avatar 4:51pm Erica:

My internet on my phone isn't working. And I couldn't tune in to the laptop earlier because I can't take it with me since it won't hold a charge.
Avatar 4:52pm Erica:

I have to keep it in one room and that's inconvenient when you have to use the bathroom.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm WR:

@Erica, the archive is your friend!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm Matt from New Orleans:

Thanks Larry. It has been a Simian paradise.
Avatar 4:57pm Erica:

I'll have to check out the rest of the show on the archives later. Hate to do so though for I missed a good 40 + minutes of the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm Mike Sin:

Nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm dutchtheo:

Yes, it was the first Animals US tour.
Thanks Larry!
Avatar 4:58pm Erica:

Have a great week everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm WR:

Thank you Larry, Onward.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks for the info Theo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks Erica, WR!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:00pm Hopey Sockmonkey:
