Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

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.

Wikip sez: Haymes was married six times, including to film actresses Joanne Dru (1941–1949), Rita Hayworth (1953–1955), and Fran Jeffries (1958–1964). He was also married to Nora Eddington, a former wife of Errol Flynn. Haymes had a total of six children—three with Joanne Dru, one with Fran Jeffries, and two with his sixth and final wife, British model Wendy Smith.

I'll repeat that for emphasis. There was a point when this guy was sharing a marital bed with Rita Hayworth.

Okay I must post this info, courtesy of our friend Ed Ward:
"...Johnny Horton, who, when he died, was married to the same woman Hank Williams was married to when *he* died. Both died in cars, Williams of an overdose and Horton of a head-on collision, and Horton was so banged-up he was identified by his toupee and the check stub from the club in Austin he'd just played, which, by eerie coincidence, had also been the site of Hank Williams' last gig.

Mrs. Williams-Horton married an insurance guy next. Wonder how she met him?"

I have a fond memory of a July 4 party with a bunch of buddies. Kate Smith appeared on TV to sing Americana crap. One of my buddies shouted something obscene at the TV and made a puerile gesture in her general direction. It was hilarious, but I can't go into detail, because the FCC might be reading this.

Another buddy of mine was tapped to escort Ethel Merman when she performed at his college. A stage manager announced to her, "Five minutes, Ms. Merman!" She replied, "Five minutes my ass!"

To this day when I hear somebody give a five-minute warning I mumble Ms. Merman's response to myself.

Ed Norton's the character who takes forever to situate himself at the table, align the utensils, roll up his sleeves, stretch his arms forward, precisely place the dishes, cups, and saucers, re-align the utensils... There are people actually like that.

I'm not sure people are aware of it, but along with the broadcast signal and streams, WFMU has podcasts, some of which are not on any schedule. One of these podcasts is hosted by erstwhile on-air DJ KBC, called Bitslap. It's got a whole lot of oddities and novelties, weird covers and whatnot.
