Finishing up Laura Cantrell's fill-in from Saturday. Miss her on the air and recommend the show for some of her insights on a certain George Jones.

I am looking forward to Doing Nothing. It will be far preferable to my current status of doing something. And of course, by "doing something", I mean "pretty much hitting myself over the head repeatedly with a two by four".

this track is so puerile, but it so cracks me up
  Thu. 5/9/13 12:10pm frenchee:

Party down! Those Kleppies are definitely puerile, thanks for my next WORD OF THE DAY, ChazLEW!

Busy drinking nothing... WAITER!
Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 12:10pm listener james from westwood:

Grab a shopping cart, pile it with party goods and meet me in the Pure Aisle!

Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 12:15pm Brian in UK:

Hello Charlie & listeners.
@Michael Laura's covering Terre T's show was an education. She seems to be losing her accent though.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 12:17pm pacific standard simon:

Genius, Charlie, genius!
Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 12:17pm Parq:

Wrong-speed-plays are a staple of FMU free-form, but that was particularly appealing.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 12:18pm Brian in UK:

Hey Parq have you tried hammering a beefy ole nail into that there wood for a full effect.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 12:19pm Parq:

Have a care, there, Brian; Donny Vomit {Google it} I ain't.

Party on the poop deck!
Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 12:20pm still b/p:

I thought it was sounding like the later wind-down stages of a party, but didn't realize it was Wanda in drag....so to speak.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 12:20pm pacific standard simon:

Nailing or stapling rekkids to the turntable is frowned upon by FMU management.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 12:25pm listener james from westwood:

hey, those nails and staples don't grow on trees! they got a budget to mind!

Never realized before that most of the asides in the Debbie/Iggy version were duped from the original.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 12:41pm Uncle Michael:

The Wanda was brilliant. What a great show, Charlie.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 12:43pm still b/p:

  Thu. 5/9/13 12:46pm bob from bushwood:

sorry i'm late to the party. has anybody identified the theme picture? is it from the jacques tati movie where he destroys the nightclub restaurant?
Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 12:47pm Charlie:

Hello bob from bushwook -- exactly right, that pic is from Tati's film, Playtime
  Thu. 5/9/13 12:49pm bob from bushwood:

Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 12:57pm Michael:

I remember seeing Playtime for the first time on Channel 13 when very young and it making quite an impression. Re-watching relatively recently was wonderful.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 12:58pm Parq:

Hah. Segueing from Pere Ubu to the Marx Brothers. Reminds me of the time you segued from Alan Sherman to the Selector.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 12:58pm Uncle Michael:

Playtime broke Tati but it was probably worth it. It's genius.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 12:58pm pacific standard simon:

Now there's service for ya, Monica!
Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 12:59pm Charlie:

It was all cued up, Monica!

That's why she became my party doll -- sorry, UM.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 1:31pm northguineahills:

I have a sneaking suspicion that this set has something in common w/ Megan's Underwater Theme Park.
Avatar Thu. 5/9/13 1:35pm Carmichael:

OK, back after a knockout Java update. Sheesus, I hate that program.
