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.

I am in that unhappy place when you learn that a player on your favorite ball club is married to a Fox News reporter. At least he's a free agent unlikely to re-sign with the club. (This compounds the unhappy place when you realize your favorite ball club isn't going to sign that free agent who's been the team's best pitcher for years.)

I remember Klinger singing "Come On-A My House" in one episode of "M*A*S*H." In some manner of drag, of course.

I wasn't a fan by any stretch, but you know, he was young, kept a tenuous grip on life, fucked up by fame or something. It is sad.

yeah..heroin sucks. Tragic.

I just listed to Eri Chiemi singing Come Ona My House in (mostly) Japanese.

I thought we were into some Slim Whitman there for a moment before seeing it was that Ifield fella.

  Fri. 12/4/15 2:34pm Dean:

At the spoken intro I caught myself thinking, "Is this Big Jay?" Awesome. I heard him a bunch of times at a club in Santa Fe Springs (So Cal) when he was still delivering for the USPS, pre-comeback. He was amazing.

Look into a bright light, UM! Sometimes that works the sneeze loose for folks.
  Fri. 12/4/15 2:43pm Dean:

How come radio stations have cough buttons, but not sneeze buttons?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/4/15 2:44pm Uncle Michael:

That's an excellent question. I wonder what would happen if I tried using my cough button for a sneeze.
Avatar Fri. 12/4/15 2:45pm Charlie:

How come salad bars have sneeze guards but not cough guards?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/4/15 2:46pm Uncle Michael:

My head hurts.
  Fri. 12/4/15 2:46pm Dean:

UM: Probably invalidate the warranty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/4/15 2:47pm doctorjazz:

Man, this is the coolest accordion...doesn't sound like Klezmer, but I like it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/4/15 2:47pm Uncle Michael:

If I sneeze too hard a warranty isn't the only thing I'd void.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/4/15 2:48pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Ohhhh the questions! Lovely show this afternoon, Unc. Able to enjoy part of it in the backyard on this fine December day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/4/15 2:50pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks, Kevin....much appreciated.

Doc...the NOKAS cover a lot of varied territory. Some of it is even Klezmer.
Avatar Fri. 12/4/15 2:54pm Charlie:

Yeah, that accordion number was nice, also these two songs that followed.
