Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:11am neither:

@dc hamfat BG who?
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:11am Cecile:

I think I saw Oscar as part of Branca's touring guitar orchestra back in the day. But he and Page Hamilton didn't get along, so he bailed.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:11am Joe McG:

I think Lou Reed was inspired by Oscar the Grouch throughout most of his career. @neither: I agree with you! I don't really find this that noisy. Bummer! I was trying to find the "typical" noise record. Should've gone to the Merzbow section.

Ah, so this is MMM...they say this was a contractual obligation album, but the patterns sound a bit too clever for that.

Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:20am Brian in UK:

Anyone know the 'hidden' track at the end of Flaming Lips 'Hit to Death in the Future Head' Thirty minutes of wop wop from speaker to speaker. Not as cool as Lou ofcourse.

@Brian: Wop wop kind of similar to boing boing.

Yep Brian in UK, drove many friends nuts with that. Great album. Actually hung out with them a little back then.

i keep reading Hamfats as "Hamfest", and thinking about a Ham Radio Festival

This sounds fun. Very Suzi Quatro

Careful, Joe. People are still reeling from last week's trip to "Paradise".
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:37am dc hamfat:

Holy crap Heart sounds like Heart!
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:37am joe:

Is this the heart that wound up on Gaylord's premium this year?
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:38am Joe McG:

@Cecile: Very agree!
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:38am Matt from Springfield:

Yeah! Terrific Glam!
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:38am Joe McG:

@Parq: ha ha ha! @joe: Yes, it is indeed!
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:39am joe:

Thought it sounded familier
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:41am Parq:

Speaking of familiar, I have fond memories of this Beat Rodeo single.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:41am Joe McG:

@Parq: The price tag on my copy says "Pier Platters .25"!
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:45am common:

this is a great, eclectic set Joe!

Virginia's Own Vegasian, Wayne Newton!
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:47am PKNY:

It's funny, I was half-listening to this "Housewife" track, and I thought it was Joe Walsh singing for some reason.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:48am Joe McG:

@PKNY: The weirdest thing about it is that it's written by Leon Russell with Kim Fowley!
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:49am ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

Funny but the young Willie Nelson sounds like he's inhaled helium. Guess I like the older, husky voice.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:49am Matt from Springfield:

And Texas Own Willie!

Whoa! BOA! Nice!

Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:54am dc hamfat:

I was listening to this Black Oak Ark tune from across the room and thought it was Music Machine for a minute!
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 10:54am PKNY:

Alright, some ass kicking Southern rock! Jim Dandy is that dude!

Rolf 'arris! Unusually bluesy for Aussie folk.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:01am Cecile:

notice the sun is a "she".
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:02am Greg from Bloomfield:

Note to self: make "Sun Arise" your alarm clock.
  Thu. 10/3/13 11:04am r i s k y:

Nice single Joe!
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:04am Brian in UK:

Sad to say Rolf Harris is not the flavour anymore.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:05am Matt from Springfield:

YES Greg!! :D

@Cecile In the West, the Sun is often male and the Moon female (like Apollo and Artemis), maybe the Aborigines saw the Sun as female!
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:05am Cecile:

oh, boy.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:06am Davee:

I moon the sun!
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:06am Cecile:

matt, yeah, that's what struck me and what I thought was cool.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:08am Parq:

There was a nifty little discussion of BOA recently on the Dusty Show FB fan page recently. Lots of us remember them well.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:09am Matt from Springfield:

YES Joe about "Sun Arise" being outside of time!

@Brian I hope that doesn't turn out to be the case--can't there be at least ONE children's performer who isn't like that..depressing...
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:09am tim from champaign:

FMU DJs need fillings?
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:10am Cecile:

I hope that it is just a terrible misunderstanding.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:11am pgw in mntclr:

if you guys need "go for" fill-ins, i just got laid off
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:12am doca:

Will Donna play a "lighter" set on her fill-in for Irene?
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:12am Cecile:

sorry to hear that, pgw. A friend of mine's last day is today, too. :(
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:13am Brian in UK:

Seems not Matt. Jimmy Savile was the bastard that kicked this off and he is dead. It is a shock.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:16am Brian in UK:

Ahhhh Donna (to the sound of Joe's opening credits) Copacetic.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:16am Joe McG:

Brian, are you singing on this one?
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:16am pgw in mntclr:

thanks, Cecile. i got outsourced, but i also got a severance!
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:17am Brian in UK:

Still waiting for my voice to break, Joe.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:17am Cecile:

that's nice, pgw.

Wow, these kids can sang.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:18am Brian in UK:

Give the Drummer Some!!!!
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:18am Parq:

Jeez, this is pretty! Is the whole disc like this?
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:18am tim from champaign:

My condolences, pgw. Hopefully, you'll have something else lined up soon.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:19am Mike Sin:

Nice show today, Joe! Listening while traveling back to Jersey.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:20am Joe McG:

Thanks, Mike! Hey everybody, tune in for Mike on Saturday morning at 11!

Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:24am Greg from Bloomfield:

My high school history teacher showed us the '73 Wicker Man. I think I was the only one that loved it.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:24am Joe McG:

Hey, carm! @Cecile: Children singing will lead you there!
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:25am Matt from Springfield:

Nice music made by children in schools...Incredible, even!
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:26am Joe McG:

@Matt: It's a wrestling match between Don Muro and the kiddies as to which new release I like better.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:26am Joe McG:

@Greg: Your teacher would get fired for doing that today, probably.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:28am Matt from Springfield:

@Greg/Joe: And without permission slips no less!!! ;)

@Joe: I'm more than content to let the match spill over into next week :)
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:29am Carmichael:

Children of the Corn singing led me there, too. I didn't fare well.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:30am Greg from Bloomfield:

Don't worry, he fast forwarded through the weird nude dance part.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:31am Carmichael:

Was it a naked balloon dance, like that guy from the Teletubbies?
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:35am Carmichael:

Yes! Richard and Linda!
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:36am Matt from Springfield:

I know I'm a bit late saying so, but that Oscar the Grouch into Metal Machine Music was brilliant.

Got to run around. Great show as usual, Joe.

Thanks, Mike East. Noise annoys! Hey, Kurt! Thanks for listening, Parq, always good to see you.

I just made chainstay protector out of an old inner tube.
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:44am Carmichael:

Just saw RT again a few weeks ago. He guested for Peter Frampton, and played Shoot Out the Lights and Tear Stained Letter. Bloody brilliant performance.

oh man, one of my fave dollies. thanks, skipper!

You bet, King Kurt!

Dolly's Bargain Store--love this one!
Avatar Thu. 10/3/13 11:55am Joe McG:

I just want to say that I love that Charlie Daniels song dearly. And it's been my pleasure to play records for you this morning. I hope you all have a great week!

Rough demo of Carl! Superb.
