Oh dear. That class is going to have some very smelly homework.

Is that art by Frank Netter?

Hi Irwin - make it six. I've never heard this fine King Kong cover before. Very nice.

Judging by the size of that intestine, the fellow probably had Roto-Rooter on speed dial.

The photo was taken during a visit to the Mutter Museum.

technically, the group name is "Jeff Lynne's ELO"
Avatar Wed. 12/23/15 3:50pm Whooda:

The improvements to the engineering seem pretty obvious on that ELO remake. I wonder if it will be available on vinyl for a real head-to-head comparison
Avatar    Wed. 12/23/15 3:51pm Irwin:

combo: I've updated accordingly. See the biopic. It's terrif.

I watched it five days ago! If you're not an iTunes hater, it's available for streaming.

Thank you for prompting potential viewers about the Smile link.

WFMU DJs would have fallen within the scope of Pol Pot's aims...
     Wed. 12/23/15 4:15pm Listener Robert:

Meanwhile, GGG, Art Bell quit his radio show this mo. because of death threats backed up by shots fired, vandalism, & intrusion.
Avatar    Wed. 12/23/15 4:19pm Irwin:

Art Bell is STILL broadcasting? Next you'll tell me that Colbert still has a TV show.
     Wed. 12/23/15 4:25pm Listener Robert:

Bell started a show July 25 called "Midnight in the Desert" to compete w his old show. The audience was mostly via stream, but he was picking up b'cast affiliates as months went along. Then in Sept., he had a cable cut, and then things got more serious: pvtimes.com...
     Wed. 12/23/15 4:29pm Listener Robert:

I'm guessing it had nothing to do w his content, but rather w his prominent antenna array, visible for miles, and his assailant a nut like the one who beat up Dan Rather turned out to be. The chief alternative hypotheses -- gangsterism by competitors, someone offended by his content, or that he fabricated the whole thing -- are not as credible to me.
  Wed. 12/23/15 4:30pm berbo:

Did Reich convince anyone to eat at McDonalds? I don't think so.
     Wed. 12/23/15 4:32pm Listener Robert:

Regardless of whether orgone was about the ravings of a nut or serious science (I think it was the former), Reich's persecution by FDA and FTC were over the top & horrible. Was it necessary to destroy his books?
  Wed. 12/23/15 4:37pm GGG:

If they were books being distributed inter-state and making misleading medical claims, they have the right (with a judge's approval) to do so. Don't know if it was necessary, but it does happen with other quack-like content.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/23/15 4:38pm dale:

art bell was airing over shortwave station wbcq briefly. it was always on too late for my tired bones.
     Wed. 12/23/15 4:48pm Listener Robert:

He was on a couple of sw stns., several mostly small FM & AM medium wave stns., but then picked up some major ones on the west coast & was about to announce their deal w WABC.

Yes, GGG, I know the legal theory by which literature becomes part of a medical device, but when it's unaccompanied by the sale of a device and isn't even being sold??!
     Wed. 12/23/15 4:52pm Listener Robert:

Anyway, Bell's producer, Heather Wde, who'd been recruited initially from a fan Web board (handle [Redacted]) -- reminding me of developments here -- took over his on-mic role, but as when Jason Jarvis took over from his mother Judy's network talk show, I don't think the magic rubs off sufficiently.

...Joe expounding on popular &/or modern social figures this way reinforces my notion that he & Hearty White are opposite sides of the same coin...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/23/15 5:08pm Mike East:

really dug that Joe Frank episode, Irwin. Nice selection
Avatar    Wed. 12/23/15 5:10pm Irwin:

Would love to know what the bridge music was early in that Joe show. Some weird jazz abruptly cut off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/23/15 5:10pm Mike East:

...and thank you for not playing Barry Manilow following it.
Avatar    Wed. 12/23/15 5:11pm Irwin:

Not that it occurred to me, but I like Manilow. Fine pop craftsman. "Mandy" is such a bleak, dark song.
Avatar    Wed. 12/23/15 5:12pm Irwin:

Speaking of bleak, dark songs, this Procol song is downright depressing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/23/15 5:13pm Mike East:

I grew up with my parents and sisters listening to Manilow, but not his better known stuff. I got burnt out on it. I can still appreciate some of his hits well enough, but overall, leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/23/15 5:13pm dale:

you could play 'brandy' by scott english and no one would throw rocks at you.
Avatar    Wed. 12/23/15 5:14pm Irwin:

Or the Langley version.
  Wed. 12/23/15 5:14pm V Priceless:

My fave drummer! Nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/23/15 5:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I had Procul's 'Salty Dog' 45 as a callow lad - it was on both sides I think...I kept playing it I think because I wondered if there was something other than feeling like being shipwrecked I was maybe missing...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/23/15 5:15pm dale:

i don't know that one. is it like the kids of widney high?
Avatar    Wed. 12/23/15 5:16pm Irwin:

Seriously, dale? You don't know the Langley Schools Music Project???!!??!!???!!???!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/23/15 5:21pm dale:

oooohhHHHHHHHHHhhhhh...yeah, i have the cd. i don't recall mandy. but the major tom blew my mind.
Avatar    Wed. 12/23/15 5:22pm Irwin:

LSMP is a gateway drug to outsider music.
Avatar Wed. 12/23/15 5:22pm statoj:

I thought I was above Manilow until I saw him in concert a few years ago and finally understood what a fine entertainer he is. Totally gives his heart to his audience, and in his 70s, what energy the man has! Excellent piano chops and he can still hit the notes. The man feels a lot of joy.
Avatar    Wed. 12/23/15 5:24pm Irwin:

Manilow's one of those artists who's both over- and underrated.
Avatar    Wed. 12/23/15 5:25pm Irwin:

Like me.
Avatar    Wed. 12/23/15 5:25pm Irwin:

And you.
Avatar    Wed. 12/23/15 5:28pm Linda Lee:

absolutely lovely music tonight, Irwin. thank you.
Avatar Wed. 12/23/15 5:28pm statoj:

The worst crime in a music career is to stop playing.
Avatar    Wed. 12/23/15 5:33pm Irwin:

I can think of a few examples where continuing constitutes the greater crime.
     Wed. 12/23/15 5:35pm Listener Robert:

They always say not to quit, you'll regret it later. I quit piano lessons at about age 12, never regretted it. But of course I never had a music career & had the good sense to leave it to those whose aptitude was better.
     Wed. 12/23/15 5:35pm Listener Robert:

Exactly so, Irwin!
Avatar Wed. 12/23/15 5:37pm statoj:

I was thinking in terms of that Jefferson Airplane quote, "Life is change. How it differs from the rocks...". Great music tonight! Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/23/15 5:40pm dale:

is this all one hermaphroditic doll this lady is trying to hawk?
  Wed. 12/23/15 5:40pm moe lester:

that's what i just love to do!
  Wed. 12/23/15 5:42pm berbo:

This is clearly Irwin's way of complaining about the DJ who didn't file the Manilow albums correctly.
Avatar    Wed. 12/23/15 5:44pm Irwin:

Didn't have to complain. Took matters into my own hands and gave that DJ a wedgie to remember.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/23/15 5:52pm Mike Sin:

I very much enjoyed today's show, Irwin. Have a happy and healthy holiday week, folks!
Avatar    Wed. 12/23/15 5:53pm Irwin:

Same to you, Mike, and everyone. Even Ike!
Avatar    Wed. 12/23/15 5:56pm Irwin:

Best song ever. Well, one anyway.
