It's nice, the way that the VistaVision logo is incorporated in the "grocer's quotes".

Carrying out a brand to its logical end is an art.

Those blistering surf instrumentals near the top of the show are always a highlight of my Saturday afternoon (go figure). Now I'm wracking my brain trying to remember where I know Marla English from. More fun trying to puzzle it out first instead of going directly to Google...

Fool's Paradise followed by Fiveash!! Too nice to be inside, so the old speakers are coming outside whilst I play in the dirt. Man I love living solo in the sticks.

wilda humphrey really showed james brown how "hot pants" is done.

There should be a song titled "Muu Muu" by some skinny chick who is unhappy about looking like a folded up cafe umbrella in her muu-muu.

More about the clothing swap! He he.

Plenty cheesecake when you Google Marla.

2 matts are having a clothing swap?
Avatar Sat. 5/23/15 1:45pm Listener Jumpy:

Rudy "Tutti" Grayzell stayed in my building for a few days. My downstairs neighbor put him up. It was startling, to say the least, to see him dash over to the corner laundromat for a wash!
  Sat. 5/23/15 1:46pm P-90:

"Touch Connors": later TV's Mannix. VistaVision: an eight-perf non-anamorphic horizontal widescreen movie process (don't ask). And: The She Creature! That must be where I remember Marla from.

hay! good afternoon errybody!

I think maybe Rex has a pretty decent record collection...still too early to tell

When that dude does a station ID, it *stays* IDed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/23/15 1:55pm pacific standard simon:

Bet it's a real pick-up, when you're feeling down, to listen to Rudy Ray Moore ranting about how great you are.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 5/23/15 2:14pm Greg from Bloomfield:

That mustard song pretty much encapsulated everything I love about this show.
Avatar Sat. 5/23/15 2:24pm Tidepoolbay:

What did he say was played by whiplash the crude NJ band?
  Sat. 5/23/15 2:36pm P-90:

Wait- Is "shooting beavers" possibly a metaphor?
  Sat. 5/23/15 2:38pm vonghouls:

Should we be concerned that he is asking someone else to shoot beavers WITH HIM?
  Sat. 5/23/15 2:43pm Punchy:
