Wow – I remembered to tune in, this theme show should be great! Merry X-Mas again everybody!

As I said before - it was so easy to rip-off the Chipmunks.

Welcome everyone! Just trying to get things to work here in the studio

A broken record player can make that Chipmunk magic happen!

Hope you all get a good grade on this!

re the "Corn Weenie" track, it comes from here:
and inspired a WFMU meme long before the 'milk rap' took over here. Scores of remixes and mashups resulted:

Years ago, I did a "remix" of the Chipmunk Song where I slowed down their parts so they just sounded like a bunch of middle-aged guys singing "chrisssssstmasssss tiiiimme is heeeeere agaaaaaain..."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm Kat in Chicago:

I wonder if any of these Chip-nots got a Christmas card from Ross Bagdasarian’s legal team.
  2:38pm TheHipMen:

I think Monchhichi might be based off a knock-off toy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Mr Fab:

I guess if you didn't call them The Chipmunks, you were good. (Well, not really "good," but y'know..)
Avatar 2:40pm BC Sterrett:

Some would use the spelling "Chipmonks" or they would just have a picture of Chipmunks on the cover with a completely different band etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm Mr Fab:

Don't think that would fly nowadays. Lawyers are a lot more aggressive. So don't get any funny ideas, Alvin...Alvin?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm Kat in Chicago:

Chipmonks! I’m picturing tonsured rodents shrieking out an accelerated version of “Oh, How To Do Now”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Mr Fab:

That is hilarious, Kat! Yup, them sped up voices going 'I hate you baby!'
  2:46pm TheHipMen:

BC, that Monnchichi song you played is based off a toy www.google.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm Kat in Chicago:

Ha, I wonder if I could do that in Audacity.
Avatar 2:49pm BC Sterrett:

Yes, Hipmen, I had two Monchhichi as a kid. One of my favorite toys in my elementary years. The voices are still Chipmunk :)
Avatar 2:52pm BC Sterrett:

I quite like this one. lol

Lou Monte is well known for the song Mama, Get The Hammer (There's A Fly On Papa's Head) not to be confused with Mama, Get The Hammer (There's A Fly On The Baby's Head) by The Bobby Peterson Quartet

These are great so far.

Gary Panter did a Chipmunks parody version of the Sex Pistols that's pretty funny.
