What a great song,Bob! Never heard it before.

That's why I live WFMU.

Hi Bob & Mayuko. Listening to your show in a train from Tokyo to Yokohama. Can't whip out my credit card now but will try to when I get home.
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 9:36am fm Mike:

^ Awesome!
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 9:36am fm Mike:

Good morning all :D

I bet Jersey has the greatest population density of all the states.

You can get in the running for this beautiful prize "PARCHMAN FARM: PHOTOGRAPHS AND FIELD RECORDINGS, 1947-1959" www.dust-digital.com... for a $20 pledge or more!!
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 9:56am fm Mike:

So do mouse pledges come out of your bank account on the first of each month?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/18/17 9:59am doctorjazz:

Not sure of the day of the month they take out the pledges, (if you do it as Swag For Life...you could just give a Mouse pledge in 1 shot via credit card, or even split it up, I believe, giving, say, half in 1 amount, the rest as a monthly contribution).
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 9:59am fred:

Wow! Parchman Farm is excellent and out of print! This isn't something you can get anywhere, not at this price anyway
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 10:02am melinda:

Woo weee! Thanks!
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 10:06am Mayuko:

Congratulations, melinda!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/18/17 10:12am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

My SwagForLife has come out on or around the 10th every month, I believe. The answer man is Gentleman Joe McGasko - who heroically somehow answers all such inquiries!
  Sat. 3/18/17 10:14am Listener Robert:

Explain to her that Muzak is a trademark.

Aaaand now I want to try drugs. Great.

As Mel Blanc got old, his "hoo-hoo" came with greater difficulty.

@Mayuko: I'll miss your show today. I'll be leaving momentarily for an Iranian music show, then one featuring Nihilist Spasm Band

I know people who knew Daffy. Big time tea head.

hope you have a great time, fred! it was nice to have you hanging out with us last week!
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 10:21am Mayuko:

Obviously Daffy is causing problems rather than solving em.
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 10:21am Guerin:

Yeow, what a great set! Love Moby Grape all the way through Smackaroo -- I've know about the instrumental version of the Q song but have never heard it before. THANK YOU!
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 10:21am fm Mike:

Tell Mayuko about Ken's Lullaby versions of songs. They are awesome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/18/17 10:23am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Mid-Century Animators were all strenuously sober. That's quite apparent I think...
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 10:25am Michael Shelley:

I am definitely getting BOB'S premium - every track he's played has been a #1 hit!
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 10:25am Guerin:

Nice to hear WFMU has so many listeners in Michigan. I am one, and I proudly sport the WFMU bumper sticker on my smug used Prius. Sometimes I honk at others with the WMFU stickers, but they just think I'm being another asshole driver.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 3/18/17 10:26am Ken From Hyde Park:

Good morning, Bob & Mayuko. Keep hauling in them pledges!
  Sat. 3/18/17 10:27am tom chiu @fumanchiuonthis:

A GREAT DJ tandem !!! Keep giving to wfmu!!
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 10:27am fm Mike:

@ Guerin that's awesome! I'm the only person I know of who listens to WFMU in South Carolina, apart from one listener up in the capital.
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 10:32am Mayuko:

Van Dyke Parks, Songs Cycled bellaunion.com... can be yours! Pledge $20 or more now to get in the running!!
  Sat. 3/18/17 10:34am Listener Robert:

Sound like a Jiffy Pop ad. Was that ad a parody of this?
  Sat. 3/18/17 10:34am David in ATL from NJ:

Thanks for bringing it every week, Bob.

This song is solid gold.

...switchblades few & far between @ this particular Rawkabilly rumble I reckon...
  Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/18/17 10:40am Ralphine:

I listen to WFMU in the capital of South Carolina, and I know two other people who do.

A pledge of $100 or more will get you in the running for this NRBQ box set, grand prize! omnivorerecordings.com...
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 10:43am Guerin:

I love this song by the Cymbals. I'd forgotten about it! Actually i realize now it could have been written by Terry Adams. Was it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/18/17 10:45am unpopularfred:

Love the show Bob. Not surprised you attract so many Vermonters (like myself)
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 10:46am Mayuko:

Wish I hadn't pledged already. . . .

I don't adorn my car with bumper stickers; if the swag shop had license plate frames, I'd take one of those.
Avatar Sat. 3/18/17 10:53am melinda:

I have the woof-moo bumper sticker, it's both subtle and clever
