Becky! Tonkies!

What happened to the theme tune?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm Becky:

Howdy everybody! I'm thankful for you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm loveless:

Straight into the set. What happen to the beloved theme song? Hey everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm Pauly from Clifton:

Hiya Becky, Crew, folks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm Handy Haversack:

Becky and the Honky Tonka Trucks! Hello!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm Becky:

The theme song has not been retired, I promise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm Richard S:

Hello! Happy Turkey Day Eve!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm mariano:

Hey Becky, everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm loveless:

Whew!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Scott Williams:

Mea culpa on the theme song, sorry Becky!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm mariano:

Likewise, Becky :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Becky:

Ha, no worries Scott! I can barely play records properly so you're doing great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Becky. RIP Hal Ketchum and Maradona.
  8:09pm Sean Kershaw:

This Carl Dean sounds like he learned piano from Jerry Lee Lewis. Great honkytonk!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm ultradamno:

A gender reversed version of this song would not work.
Avatar 8:10pm y_ddraig_las:

Not being able to play records properly is the sign of a truly excellent DJ. The late great John Peel "Right place, right time, wrong speed' almost every show he would either play a 45 at 33 or vice versa.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Little Danny:

Something tells me Connie Saul's hair was pretty high at this point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Becky:

Yes, to clarify, this version of That's Baby basically starts at a random point in the middle of the song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Handy Haversack:

In media res. Very modernist. All good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm mariano:

No "Previously on 'That's Baby'..."?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Little Danny:

Wow, great version
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Little Danny:

Bit of Jimmy Reed in there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Doug in JC:

Dang, this is a swinger
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Motobro:

Probably drinking coffee n smoking big cigars
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Handy Haversack:

Moto! How goes, pal?

Kate and I are playing heads-up Texas hold 'em. Otherwise known as "Never Stop Shuffling."
  8:19pm BH:

"Hello 7 inch listeners, we've come to the point in 'That's Baby' where those listening on 78 rpm will have to stand up or sit down to switch records. In fairness to those listeners, we'll now take a few seconds before we begin part 2.

Thank you, here's part 2"
  8:21pm winston legthigh:

is this the real MOTOBROTHERFROMANOTHERMOTHER? happy tday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm ultradamno:

Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron might be funnier.
  8:22pm winston legthigh:

like my gator steak medium well
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm mariano:

Lol, BH!

Having flashbacks to those Jim Croce record commercials.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Motobro:

Hi Handy, playing with grand daughter Olivia & listening to Miss Becky. Watching some youtube dirt bike vids and live freight train cams with her too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Becky:

Miss Becky loves both freight trains and dirt bikes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm mariano:

Handy: I know a couple of nifty false shuffles and cuts, you ever want to grift Kate and grift her good [springs cards effortlessly from one hand to the other, looks over both shoulders].
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Motobro:

Right on Miss Becky. Us too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Handy Haversack:

Mariano, I recently read a book you'd love, /How to Cheat at Everything/. While I am never going to be capable of pulling off any of the moves, I at least know what I'm not capable of spotting. Short answer: never get off of the boat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Little Danny:

I really can't think of a better song to evince disappointment upon reveal than BBLB
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm Handy Haversack:

I wonder if many people name their dog Leroy Brown just for the frisson during scolding.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm ultradamno:

Send In The Clowns would be another potentially better one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm mariano:

Lol, Handy. Never get off the riverboat. At least not without one's ornately-engraved derringer. I love books and movies about the ways of grifters and cheats.

Damn! Internet-winning comment of the evening, the Leroy Brown quip. "Far Side"-worthy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Motobro:

And
Coors Light???
How about Fresca and Kettle?

WINSTON, how goes it down in O’l FLA?
Where eve favorite Florida song is Tallahassee Lassie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Richard S:

Esso! Put a Tiger in your tank!
  8:30pm Steve Krinsky:

Shazam says this is Jack Bond
Avatar 8:31pm y_ddraig_las:

Is this possibly where Esso got the idea for their "Put a tiger in your tank" campaign?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Richard S:

Maybe this was written as part of the campaign...
  8:32pm BH:

I had to go to the playlist page to doublecheck if that was Roger Miller or not
Avatar 8:33pm y_ddraig_las:

The original campaign was 1959. when was the record released?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Motobro:

Tiger in my tank, what a find this is.
Sounds like a “wacka do wacka do” ought to be in there somewhere. Maybe its Roger Miller??
  8:34pm winston legthigh:

bakin pies and drinkin drinks moto. gettin ol 53 out tomorrow for turkey run friday!
Avatar 8:35pm y_ddraig_las:

Tiger in My Tank, has a version by Jim Nesbit?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Becky:

Yes, that's the one I know best!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm steveo:

good evening -- glad to be listening!

this is, apparently, a female recording artist named bobbie mcgee...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm ultradamno:

Too many animals in Esso ad i.ebayimg.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm ultradamno:

...and is he going to gas up the tortoise with his tail?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Becky:

I fixed it Steveo!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm mariano:

Speaking of petroleum-company marketing, there's this old gem: www.google.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm steveo:

i didn't say anything :) :) :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Becky:

Oh but the "Bobbie" spelling is on the record. I don't fix typos.
Avatar 8:41pm slugluv1313:

good evening, Becky and Skeletons and Honky Tonkers!
the Tony Orlando & Dawn version of Knock Three Times has been stuck in my head all day, i guess this is why :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm mariano:

And what a motto Uniroyal has: "We want you to know how famous we are." Desperate much?
Avatar 8:42pm y_ddraig_las:

When I was a kid, we collected Tiger tokens whenever we bought petrol [gas'], which we could exchange for wine glasses or Phil Collins records, which didn't seem to be very tigery things to me at the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm mariano:

Hey slugluv! Saw Tony Orlando in 1981 in Vegas, part of a road trip with my dad and stepmom. Sat right up by the stage and he shook my pudgy little hand as he exited.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm ultradamno:

@mariano You could pass that off as a Trump quote. Classic mixed message.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Handy Haversack:

Ever see the postcard of a billboard somewhere in the Levant that showed a little brown boy with the legend "He only knows three words of English: Boy, George, and Uniroyal." Painted over with YANKEE GO HOME.

It was, uh, from the eighties.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Motobro:

Winston, I’m sidelined, no jeeps, no motorcycles. I thought I was doing good because it didn’t hurt, but rotator surg is not about the pain.... its about not using it when it feels like you can...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm mariano:

ultradamno: Hah! Should've just gone whole-hog and made it "We won't be ignored."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Becky:

There are very few songs in the pantheon of hatred like those two. I also hate "Take A Letter, Maria." A LOT.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Becky:

Carl Dean does not cover Take A Letter, Maria
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm mariano:

Handy: See my link above @8:40.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm ultradamno:

@handy It sounds familiar, like I saw it just recently somewhere...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm mariano:

Oh God. Whoosh, I know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Handy Haversack:

I know better to click your links, Mariano!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm mariano:

Hah! Like a modern-day Flo: "Well click mah links!"
Avatar 8:47pm slugluv1313:

@mariano -- damn you have the best stories!
  8:47pm winston legthigh:

wheres the road trippin takin u moto?
Avatar 8:47pm HyperDose:

Who's gonna dance around the kitchen table with me?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Richard S:

I'm dancing in the bedroom
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm mariano:

Aww, thanks, slugluv. Saw Doug Henning too on that trip.
  8:49pm Andres:

Evening Becky and all. You Bring Out The Worst In Me had me taking a deep look inside. Thankfully the Johnny Preston helped me quickly move on.
Avatar 8:49pm slugluv1313:

@ultradamno, @mariano -- re: Trump quote, has anyone used the term "Trumpaholics" yet to describe the rabid MAGA creeps?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm loveless:

Let's meet in the living room. I'll roll up the rug.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm Richard S:

Roll up the rug and watch the floor show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Motobro:

No turkey day road trip for us; hanging home with family.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm mariano:

slugluv: Don't think I've seen that one, but someone has to have used it somewhere, at least that'd be my guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Becky:

You're a smart man, Moto.
Avatar 8:53pm slugluv1313:

@mariano -- oooo Doug Henning, complete with macramé belt?!
Avatar 8:54pm slugluv1313:

and yeah, have not seen Trumpaholics used anywhere -- just hit my brain today (maybe thanks to Tony Orlando and Dawn knocking on the ceiling and banging on the pipes)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm ultradamno:

@slug trumpaholicsannoymous.com
Avatar 8:56pm slugluv1313:

@Becky -- gosh i missed this, which other two songs do you hate?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm mariano:

Don't remember his wardrobe in much detail, slugluv, sorry... But I'm sure that whatever he was wearing was very Doug Henning. That's my impression at least!

Thanks Becky and Crew, laters, all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm Motobro:

Happy Thanksgiving Miss Becky, Mr FW and all youse guys n gals.
Gotsta burp the baby.
Thank you Becky and Crew.

Thanks for sharing your new records with us, Becky.. thanks skeletons!
Avatar 8:59pm HyperDose:

The twang is strong with this one
Avatar 8:59pm slugluv1313:

@ultradamno -- (cue in Crazy Eddie voice) INSANE!!!
@mariano -- i just remember seeing Henning on TV -- long shaggy hair and moustache, flared pants, usually this shiny scoop necked top, and a macramé belt
  8:59pm winston legthigh:

all the best all y'all's happy thanksgiving!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Richard S:
