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.

Congratulations to the Royals and their fans. A fun team and long overdue. But I must point out that Uncle Bud Selig's postseason set-up with four wildcard teams is an abomination--a freak show demolition derby that determines absolutely nothing and makes a mockery of the beauty that is baseball's classic spring-summer-fall marathon. There. I feel better now. And yes, I'm a Nationals fan. At least I was at the no-hitter.

Better to inject small quantities of isopropyl alcohol into your ears. So I was told by a real M.D.

Wax is supposed to be beneficial so no I don't and I have never grown mushrooms in there either.

I use them precisely for that purpose, for exactly what you described. Sometimes, I dip one end into some Hydrogen Peroxide and swab with that.

I still have cotton swabs sticking out of my ears from my morning hygiene routine. You know- Just in case
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 10/17/14 12:28pm northguineahills:

I never have needed Q-tips. Occasionally when I do have wax, I use my pinky nail, but it's a rare event. My wife, on the other hand, uses Q-tips two-three times a day on her ears. Now, if we were talking about A Tribe Called Quest, it would be a different conversation all together.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 12:28pm pacific standard simon:

I'm not a clumsy klutz, so yes, I ream out my ears with Q-tips -- frequently dipped in peroxide.
Avatar Fri. 10/17/14 12:28pm Dominick:

Oh, I love that Cobham track. I just needed something to help piece my exploded brain back together after listening to it. Most certainly a cotton swab in the ear man. I use them with the same care as I use a razor for shaving.

If the Hep Stars Wikipedia page is to be believed it sounds like Benny Andersson joined the Hep Stars in late '64 or early '65 so I think it's reasonable to assume that he was in the band when they recorded the On Stage album.

The WC format keeps more teams competing longer into the season. There's a sufficient hurdle for the WC teams to be successful. They have to burn their ace in the play-in and they never have home field advantage.

nuts...just nuts...and he pitched kinda lousy yesterday
Avatar Fri. 10/17/14 1:34pm Doug Schulkind:

Saying some teams get to play with a designated hitter is like saying some people get to breathe with three lungs. It's not natural and it's not right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 1:35pm Uncle Michael:

It puts the AL team at a disadvantage in the WS, for sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 1:37pm pacific standard simon:

Don't they still do that thing where every other year the NL team in the Series has to use a DH?

My guess is that as a final ge$ture, Bud Selig agreed to have Opening Day 2015 in Qatar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 1:45pm Brian in UK:

Dare I say I saw Joni in '70 or '71.

I'll thank you sir to avert your gaze from my wife's delicate underthings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 1:50pm Uncle Michael:

I'm always having to say that at the laundromat.

Ok, UM, I'm to Bryceville, thanks, and have a great weekend!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 1:51pm Uncle Michael:

See you later, ngh. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 1:51pm Uncle Michael:

Root!
Avatar Fri. 10/17/14 1:53pm Doug Schulkind:

I despise Pete Rose. Starting with maiming Ray Fosse. Then the brawl with Bud Harrelson and beyond. He broke the #1 rule in baseball and lied about it until he could cash in on telling some of the truth. I do think he should have a plaque in the Hall of Fame, but it should read: "Pete Rose, baseball's all-time hits leader, he was banished from the game in disgrace for gambling."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 1:54pm pacific standard simon:

Fair enough.
  Fri. 10/17/14 1:54pm chris:

I gotta tell u Uncle Mikey I have never listened to yer show bfore and this has been great. Look forward to future shows!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 1:55pm Uncle Michael:

I think there should be a permanent exhibit about the banned players and he should be the centerpiece.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 1:55pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks, chris. I'm glad to have you listening.

The Hall already has its share of despicable characters. I suspect that Rose will be there when he is no longer capable of causing any further embarrassment, if you know what I mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 2:01pm Jack:

More live Dead, haven't heard any in a while, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 2:03pm Uncle Michael:

I thank you all for the great Q-Tip feedback earlier. maybe grooming tips will become a weekly feature.

Next week: The wonder that is my ear and nostril hair trimmer.
Avatar Fri. 10/17/14 2:04pm listener james from westwood:

Was this the track that they didn't play live for a very long time? I recall there was one for which a college roommate knew to the day how long it'd been since the last play.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 2:05pm Uncle Michael:

This would be one of those...perhaps the primary one. It was a pretty big deal when it was revived....to some of us.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 2:06pm Uncle Michael:

It was absent between '78 and '84.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 2:07pm Uncle Michael:

Well, there were a few in there...then gone again till 1989.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 2:09pm Jack:

Jerry really could play
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 2:09pm Uncle Michael:

Anyone who pledges will get thanked...out loud...on the microphone! How cool would that be?
Avatar Fri. 10/17/14 2:10pm listener james from westwood:

89 is when I roomed with that guy, so that explains his Dead-related excitement that year.
  Fri. 10/17/14 2:13pm Santos L Halper:

Thanks for the Dark Star UM (and everything else)! Love this Fillmore collection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 2:15pm Uncle Michael:

I'm really fond of it too. I don't spend a lot of time with the Dead on Dinky Dinky Time but in the interest of full disclosure, my license plate does in fact read "DARKSTR."
Avatar Fri. 10/17/14 2:16pm Jeff Golick:

Have I already told my Dead joke here?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 2:16pm Uncle Michael:

go for it!

i.e.: How many Deadheads does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 2:16pm Uncle Michael:

I don't know, Jeff. How many?

Ever see John Carpenter's Dark Star. Funny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 2:25pm Uncle Michael:

Yes, Brian...it's partly the basis for the film "Alien."

The cat and mouse with the "beach ball," specifically...

A monster that tickles you. What happened to John Carpenter?

Dan "Pinback" O'Bannon died relatively recently after fighting Crohn's Disease for decades.

I better remember my upcoming program notes in the next break.

"Nothing But A Heartache" - that chord progression at the end of the chorus is just killer, and pretty sophisticated for a pop tune, me thinks.

Whatever happened to these guys? Replaced by alien pod-Texans in the '80s?

They came back! Rick Rubin found them.

Maybe we're NOT here -- didja think of that? Listener-bots!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 10/17/14 2:56pm Uncle Michael:

Here's a tissue, Doug. I'm prolonging it as long as I dare.

Another great show Uncle Michael. Sorry I ducked out at Dark Star and instead listened to Noel Coward at Las Vegas.
