Griot Galaxy, WHOA. Can't believe this stuff hasn't been reissued by now.

Just discovered these guys. Great rhythm section. Thanks to Doug Drummersome for the audio.

Francis, it must be zoothanomania.

The "This playlist is still being updated" link is pointing to kooky Kindle cover disasters. Is that an Easter Egg or some kind of accident / mistake?
  Wed. 2/25/15 4:29pm some dang guy:

the whole dang plalist is linking to the cover image above it. Someone didn't close an html tag.
  Wed. 2/25/15 4:31pm Robert:

Thanks for the link tips. As to the portion of the Joe Frank story that started at about 4:25, I guess we're supposed to take it that this guy NOW THINKS he worked at NIH.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/25/15 4:32pm Polyus:

I don't know, but I just ordered a copy of "While My Husband Watches", by A.B. Summers.

dang guy: You </a>re correct. Fixed.

Hey, I also need to pick up my dry cleaning and rotate my tires!
  Wed. 2/25/15 4:37pm Laura L:

Somebody ought to order a copy of "The Hound Riders Of P'toonig'ai" for Ken Freedman--you can just tell he should have it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/25/15 4:38pm Ken From Hyde Park:

OK...the egregious technical error with the HTML is fixed now. All is well.

i just tuned in to the last temptation of joe frank
  Wed. 2/25/15 4:42pm Robert:

I wore myself out LOL in the 1st half hour of this, so even if it gets very funny now, I got nothing.
Avatar Wed. 2/25/15 4:43pm glenn:

hey, laurence shames. his books are completely ridiculous, and very entertaining.
Avatar Wed. 2/25/15 4:47pm ifny:

I thought Joe was saying Calgary, not Calvary. Would have been such a different piece. And yet so very real. Not to mention a fitting eulogy to the King Edward Hotel.
Avatar    Wed. 2/25/15 4:47pm Sem Chumbo:

Joe's been reading Greys Anatomy.
  Wed. 2/25/15 4:49pm Robert:

I just realized one of the funniest things Joe Frank does is recite lists, including compound phrases consisting of lists. Timing's a large part of it.
Avatar Wed. 2/25/15 4:50pm glenn:

no, calgary and calvary are pretty similar. calvary is warmer.
Avatar Wed. 2/25/15 4:50pm ifny:

They used to keep a copy of Grey's Anatomy behind the counter at the King Eddie. Behind the counter = past the plexi window + bars. It was a low rent hotel with the best blues bar north of the 49th. Strip club during the day. And apparently there was an amateur anatomist vein running through the place...
Avatar Wed. 2/25/15 4:50pm glenn:

you've been to the king eddy, ifny?
Avatar Wed. 2/25/15 4:51pm glenn:

wait. i'm talking about the king eddy in toronto. is there one in calgary?
Avatar Wed. 2/25/15 4:51pm ifny:

@glenn Never been to Calvary, but I'll take your word for it. Chinooks be damned. I'm guessing the people in Calvary are warmer too.
Avatar Wed. 2/25/15 4:52pm ifny:

@glenn Didn't know there was a King Eddie in T.O.
Avatar Wed. 2/25/15 4:53pm glenn:

oh yeah. it's not low rent at all. high tea costs 125$ per person.
Avatar    Wed. 2/25/15 4:53pm Sem Chumbo:

Used to dig graves at a Mount Calvary Cemetery. Locals insisted on calling it Mount Cavalry.
Avatar Wed. 2/25/15 4:58pm glenn:

THE best book ever about digging graves for a summer job. - penguinrandomhouse.ca...
Avatar    Wed. 2/25/15 4:59pm Sem Chumbo:

Bookmarked, with thanks!
Avatar Wed. 2/25/15 4:59pm ifny:

@glenn King Eddie in Calgary closed after 99 good years. It was on the skids and the train line, and right next to City Hall and the best trans-fashion supply store in town. You could buy sleeves of beer for $1.50. Great gigs and sweet crowds. After it closed in 2004, there were years of schemes to re-open it, but asbestos, lack of imagination and the flood finally killed that idea. It's being demolished, if it hasn't already been.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/25/15 5:01pm Carmichael:

Hey ifny, I heard the King Eddy is being "disassembled and stored" while they build some kind of music society building around it. They swear they're gonna put it back.

I guess it was from Somewhere Out There, not Work In Progress.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/25/15 5:05pm dale:

is this a hocus pocus/the story in your eyes guitar line mashup?
  Wed. 2/25/15 5:06pm Robert:

Dan Aykroyd has/had a delivery somewhat like Joe Frank's, but I don't know if Aykroyd ever worked "in one" like that. You can't get away with pausing like that at all the commas if you're in a scene with someone else, or you come off as an awful ham. Joe Frank writes the commas with that in mind.
Avatar Wed. 2/25/15 5:10pm ifny:

@Carmichael Yeah, it's going to be part the "National Music Centre" from what I've read. It will be cool to see the neon Excalibur up again. But of course it wasn't just the bricks and neon; it was the community, and the revitalization/gentrification looks a little rich to invite/allow that back. And I can't help but wonder to all the old folks they evicted from the hotel. I'm guessing there are no residences in the master plan.
Avatar Wed. 2/25/15 5:14pm ifny:

It's enough to give somebody the blues.
Avatar Wed. 2/25/15 5:17pm ifny:

Hm looks like Brokeback Mountain used the (defunct) King Eddie bar as a location. That's pretty funny. The King Eddie was a place you could rest assured you *wouldn't* see a cowboy hat (even an ironic one).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/25/15 5:42pm Andrew Waterloo:

There's something about that Wondermints track that reminds me of Mr. Bungle.
Avatar Wed. 2/25/15 5:43pm RZ:

I really like this Jason Karaban song.
Avatar    Wed. 2/25/15 5:44pm Irwin:

Favorite it, RZ.
Avatar    Wed. 2/25/15 5:45pm Irwin:

A rare playlist trifecta: artist-song-album each one word.
  Wed. 2/25/15 5:47pm Laura L:

That is a nice 1-1-1. Thanks for doing your show in spite of need for cough button, Irwin.
Avatar Wed. 2/25/15 5:47pm RZ:
