What a great haul! making me sadder I couldn't get there. Enjoying the set, though!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 2:13pm doctorjazz:

Jealous about the Nawlins trip, is Jazz and Heritage still on?

So, pretty cool to come up with all these singles that work as a set so terrifically!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 2:32pm Nate K:

I should have bought more stuff from the guy that had all of the Excello and Specialty stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 2:34pm sugarwolf:

I'm going to guess it takes a barrel of monkeys.
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 2:35pm Mailman Tom:

One monkey would stop any show if he was as big as King Kong !
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 2:35pm Nate K:

I'm pretty sure he decided it was four, four monkeys.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 2:35pm pacific standard simon:

Or he had an act with a donkey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 2:36pm efd:

Thank you for this reminder of the greatness of Joe Tex.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 2:39pm pacific standard simon:

This one seems somewhat below VG- in grade.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 2:39pm Gaylord Fields:

The number depends on whether by "stopping the show" you mean just a temporarily cessasion of performance or if you mean the show totally canceled, everyone gets sent home with a refund (minus Ticketmaster's "service, handling, and processing fees"), of course.
Avatar    Thu. 5/7/15 2:40pm Matt F:

PSS- I think that was a fleeting turntable issue rather than a problem with the record itself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 2:43pm Nate K:

So four gets you a pause in the action, but if you want to really shut it down, you'll need a barrel, which then begs the question how many monkeys are in a barrel? To square one we return.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 2:44pm Gaylord Fields:

@Nate K: Yes, my answer is four under the first (stopped, then resumed) scenario, and twelve for complete cancellation. But then, paradoxically, any number of monkeys between four and twelve enhances the show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 2:45pm pacific standard simon:

Ah. That makes sense.

A rabid monkey'll stop any show. Speaking as a man of he world, if you know what I mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 2:46pm Nate K:

12, noted.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 2:46pm pacific standard simon:

An instrumental version of "Fortune Teller" titled "Crystal Ball"? AWESOME.
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 2:50pm Dominick:

I'll have a bergen
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 2:50pm Gaylord Fields:

And let's be clear we're referrig to actual monkeys (spider monkeys, capuchins, macaques) and not chimps, who are, after all, apes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 2:50pm sugarwolf:

How many Monkees stop the show?
Avatar    Thu. 5/7/15 2:51pm Matt F:

Amanda is probably best qualified to answer that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 2:53pm Sean B.:

Ha Simon...that's what I was thinking...like is this the backing to fortune teller?. Great cut.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 2:53pm Gaylord Fields:

@sugarwolf: Three, as on and off for decades the Monkees have recorded and toured with as few as two members under the name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 2:55pm sugarwolf:

But what if you gave the Monkees typewriters and an infinite amount of time? Would that stop the show? What if they were in the barrel?
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 2:55pm Monica:

ahhhh... one of my faves on the airwaves, some of my faves on comments, and a good cup of coffee. what more could a gal want?
Avatar    Thu. 5/7/15 2:56pm Maslaki:

Theme from my favorite movie...I once bought a zither.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 2:57pm pacific standard simon:

I'm pretty sure I've heard this Micky Baker on this show before -- but why not every show? It's that good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 2:57pm sugarwolf:

Happy 100th birthday, Orson Welles! Gonna go pee in a pool to commemorate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 2:57pm Gaylord Fields:

Also, contrary to R&B lore, if you recall the "macaca" controversy, one monkey did stop George Allen's show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 2:58pm pacific standard simon:

That reminds me, I'm sure I have a surf-rock version of "Linus And Lucy" somewhere, but I'll be damned if I can remember where.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 2:59pm sugarwolf:

How many Monkey's (or would it be Monkeys' ????) Uncles would it take to stop the show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 2:59pm Gaylord Fields:

You can't spell "mwah!" without Monica! Well, I can't.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 3:01pm listener james from westwood:

Right now I'm proofreading a text that mentions a monkey with an eye patch, but as yet no mention of simian piracy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 3:01pm Sean B.:

@PSSimon wfmu.org... This right here is probably one of Matt's best shows [and my intro to the world of Mickey Baker];Along with the 5 hour tribute to Chuck Berry he did with Ted.
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 3:01pm Dominick:

Yes, always

@Sean - I remember that show! Must have been listening to the archive, though.
Avatar    Thu. 5/7/15 3:09pm Matt F:

Maslaki- possibly my favorite movie too. Definitely the one I've seen the most times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 3:09pm Sean B.:

Yeah@PSimon I'm waiting for a 2 or 3 hour tribute to Ben E. King [I think that Ted Barron would do that feat the best justice].
Smiley was the bomb!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 3:11pm drr:

The author of "Ooby Dooby" was one of my English professors, which might explain something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 3:11pm Sean B.:

Where is that sonavbitch when I really need him....lol.

My esteem for these mighty DJs is such that I was extra careful not to mistype "heroes" as "herpes".

He cut some records on Sun; they are not of the highest quality.
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 3:27pm Monica:

is that a cold sore on your needle cartridge or are you just happy to see us?
  Thu. 5/7/15 3:28pm SB:

Thanx for that link @PSSimon The guitarist reminds me of a conglomerate of Link/Later period Jeff Beck and I dunno. Great stuff!.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 3:29pm Gaylord Fields:

The chat is never flat with Mr C on a spree!

Well, shoot, Matt. Hafta catch your fill-in on the archive; I have a job interview that afternoon.

PSS: Good luck! Tom: Thanx!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 3:41pm Parq:

Matt, you got all of these at this year's Fair? Wow, you really cleaned up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 3:41pm pacific standard simon:

Thanks Matt. I'm looking forward to having a new batch of strangers to "accidentally" introduce to the wonders of FMU via my work soundtrack.
Avatar    Thu. 5/7/15 3:43pm Matt F:

Parq- cleaned up or got cleaned out, depending on your perspective...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 3:45pm drr:

How come you didn't get any new records? These all sound kind of old, tbh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 3:46pm sugarwolf:

I just don't have the mental energy to go through all those crates at the fair anymore.
Avatar    Thu. 5/7/15 3:46pm Matt F:

I cleaned up but I didn't clean up these records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 3:47pm sugarwolf:

that's obvious!!! (I kid, I kid)(or do I???)
  Thu. 5/7/15 3:51pm SB:

I used to use a tiny bit of rubbing alcohol with paper towels and then a rinse with warm water. A delicate process...too much of both will destroy the vinyl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 3:54pm pacific standard simon:

Paper towels? Fie! Microfiber cloth!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 3:56pm Parq:

I'm sure you drove a shrewd bargain for each and every one of these. And if I wanted to listen to totally clean versions, I'd find some radio show that plays only digitally remastered CDs of the stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 3:57pm Sean B.:

If you were going to pick ONE song to pay tribute to Ben E King, THIS would be it. Rest In Peace Ben!.
