Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

What's it with the two bearded guys? How come no arms in the air, dudes? Too cool for Hinky Dinky School?

Stopped and restarted player. Sounds much better.
@Jeff Golick: to answer your question, if I recall correctly, I am ACJones0112358 or something like that. Maybe I am just ACJones or A C Jones. I log in with my email address, so I do't recall how I show up when I review an album. Too bad they are not supporting list sharing very well anymore.

Someone gave me a disposable razor to try after seeing how often my face looked like the site of a Nitsch action. I've been using that dispoable number for FOUR MONTHS. Product life is stretched when you shave only 1.5 times a week.

I loved Mannix. The actress who played the secretary, Peggy, was one of the earliest recurring African-American characters on TV.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:40pm Dave E:

I once had a cat called Nan
Whose tail got caught in a fan.
It whirled her around
And naught could be found
But some fur and a piece or her can.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:41pm Uncle Michael:

I was a Mannix fan too.

i just got an email from arhoolie. big sale. Promo Sale: 8 CDs for $15
This sale is for our US customers only.

Here's a great chance to discover new artists you've never heard!

We're having a grab bag sale: 8 CDs for $15 (shipping included). These CDs were originally intended for promotional purposes, but we've got a few we didn't use and now we'd like to offer them to you. We will randomly select 8 CDs from our collection of all different eras and genres - you get to be surprised and exposed to more great Arhoolie music!

The CDs will not be shrink-wrapped, and will have a hole punched through the barcode on the tray card. Some of the CDs you could get are pictured here, but there are no guarantees. This will be shipped separately from any other items. Unfortunately, due to the high cost of international shipping, this sale is only available to our customers located in the US.

Sale will run August 9-18.

Potential artists include:
Robert Pete Williams, Barbara Dane and Lightning Hopkins, BeauSoleil, Rev. Louis Overstreet, Mance Lipscomb, Clifton Chenier, Flaco Jimenez, Conjunto Bernal, Rose Maddox and the Vern Williams Band, the Savoy Family Band, Lydia Mendoza, the Whitetop Mountain Band, Jerry Hahn, Les Amis Creole, Juan Reynoso, Santiago Jimenez Jr., Las Hermanas Segovia, and more - not to mention compilations of corridos, Klezmer, banda, Huayno, and Hmong music!

glenn, didn't hear anything back, but I presume you got Philo's and my email about Chris Hadfield? At least we didn't get a daemon failure on it.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:41pm Dave E:

Is Mannix out on DVD?
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:42pm still b/p:

And of course, Peggy eventually had to get kidnapped as the standard TV plot-by-numbers approach played out.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:42pm glenn:

hmm. i thought i replied to that email, kat. if not, my most sincerest apologies.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:43pm kat330:

[boo-hoo] no one's communicating. Anyway, for Dave E:
Frescobaldi, a Barber for Boyce,
Shoeck the Bloch with his Weill singing voice.
Des Prez he'll move on
And not Karajan
Cutting hair so Carulli with noise.

@Dave E it is, I watched a few eps from the first season via Netflix awhile back
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:47pm pacific standard simon:

Hmm, I remember requesting some Herbie Mann a while back...
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:47pm kat330:

Can't speak to Mannix—never saw it—but enjoying the Mann.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:47pm Uncle Michael:

was this it?
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:48pm Uncle Michael:

Glad to hear it, kat.

When NASA invited haiku to be shipped to Mars, an online news report about it brought a ton of offerings (although they were being offered there to the wrong place). I submitted one that merely considered the situation, rather than a real suggestion. It prompted a response that shows news-site commenters occasionally can do something other than dash all hope for humanity.

Me:

All verses ventured
Must suit that brave stirring voice
Marvin the Martian

Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:51pm pacific standard simon:

I think it was one of those "something by" requests.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:52pm Uncle Michael:

nice!
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:52pm kat330:

@UM: I'll try to make an appearance on a semi-reg. basis, but likely listening even when not able to type.
Thanks for today's sounds!
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:52pm Alex In Illinois:

Guys, remember how earlier today, I mentioned that Sonny Boy Williamson version of the Fannie Mae song but under a different title? I mentioned that I heard it on a different radio show that I listen to on Friday afternoons. That show is or was called: "Bob's Scratchy Records". I just found out that the host of that show, Bob Reuter, died. It was definitly in the past 6 days, because he was doing his show last week.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:53pm Uncle Michael:

You're welcome, kat.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:53pm pacific standard simon:

That's a shame, Alex.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:54pm Uncle Michael:

weirder and weirder, alex
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:55pm kat330:

But where the heck are all the gals? Maybe PSS?

My same question for today's .gif for that matter.

@Alex
That's awful. I'm officially never leaving my home studio. Ever.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 2:58pm Alex In Illinois:

Meanwhile, this Kolumbo track is actually kind of intense in its own way.

Hey, I finally got around to watching the Nilsson documentary this week -- it was wonderful and sad.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 3:00pm Uncle Michael:

it is...I liked the Jimmy Webb interviews a lot
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 3:01pm pacific standard simon:

Ah well, hope I'm back next week. Thank you for all this good music, Michael.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 3:01pm hyde:

there's a crazy long tribute page here for the Bob's Scratchy Records guy: blogs.riverfronttimes.com... I'm really sorry I never heard about this show until now. Sounds great.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 3:01pm pacific standard simon:

What's up with Jimmy and that awful rash? It looked like he had shingles or something.
Avatar Fri. 8/9/13 3:02pm duke:
