Hiya, Larry. And hi, Doug, hope you're enjoying.

It is soooooo good to be back!

He's back!
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 10:03pm Funky16Corners:

I am indeed, and thanks to you all for coming back too!
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 10:10pm Jeff Ash:

OK, here I am, up from the soggy basement. Sigh.

Hey Jeff!
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 10:14pm Funky16Corners:

A little jazzy New Jersey funk

Those horns sounded like sunshine.
Hello Larry!
Gentlemen Drummers!
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 10:19pm Funky16Corners:

Hi Melinda, Geezerette! This is a very sunshiney show tonight
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/26/17 10:19pm melinda:

yes to sunshine horns
Avatar    Wed. 7/26/17 10:19pm geezerette:

And Melinda!

greetings Larry and all
...jumping around, being finicky or something, but efd was playing a Tommy James/shondells cover simultaneous to the one playing here.
this one was much better, so i stayed.
  Wed. 7/26/17 10:24pm cupcakejenny:

Well, Larry, at least SOMEONE is getting use of my loom as you weave your tapestry. :)
Avatar    Wed. 7/26/17 10:24pm geezerette:

coel! howdy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/26/17 10:26pm Parq:

Man, Larry, that's a scary story. Glad you are on the mend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/26/17 10:27pm Parq:

Ohh, and that was Joe Bataan doing Crystal Blue. Cool track!
Avatar    Wed. 7/26/17 10:28pm geezerette:

Glad you are fit as a fiddle!
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 10:28pm Funky16Corners:

Hey guys! Yes, very scary, though I sat in that mothereffing hospital bed, bored, missing my family, missing my nice cool house, and bummed that I couldn't do the show. But I'm back now, so let's all dig the sounds
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/26/17 10:30pm coelacanth∅:

Larry be okay that's an order!

- hey g!
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 10:30pm Funky16Corners:

I will obey!
Avatar    Wed. 7/26/17 10:36pm Webhamster Henry:

Astrud is very Free Designy here!
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 10:37pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, this is a great version, cool album too
Avatar    Wed. 7/26/17 10:40pm geezerette:

Didn't recognize her! More sunshine. :)
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 10:41pm Funky16Corners:

She does a lot of interesting pop covers on this album. It doesn't turn up as much as her earlier, pure bossa nova stuff
Avatar    Wed. 7/26/17 10:41pm geezerette:

That brass!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/26/17 10:43pm Parq:

Another surprise awaits me on my return to the playlist. Astrud G has always got her own way with a song.
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 10:44pm Funky16Corners:

Yes, lots of NY studio people (including Ron Dante of the Archies on backing vocals)
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 10:57pm Funky16Corners:

I have to go back and see if any of my past shows hasn't included some contribution from Gabor Szabo. He is ubiqitous and omnipresent in my record collection (that's him on guitar)
  Wed. 7/26/17 11:00pm mauri:

Enjoying the show! peaceful at 6am here in Finland
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 11:01pm Funky16Corners:

Finland! Wow! Welcome!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/26/17 11:08pm Parq:

I said on someone else's playlist recently that part of what makes Some Velvet so creepy-cool is wondering just what actually happened to the poor son of a bitch.
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 11:09pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, it is the very definition of enigmatic. Musically experimental, lyrically strange, beautiful yet oddly dangerous.
Avatar    Wed. 7/26/17 11:10pm geezerette:

Always makes me think of Manson. Definitely sounds like the dark side of the sixties.
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 11:11pm Funky16Corners:

Hazlewood was tapping into something very strange
Avatar    Wed. 7/26/17 11:11pm geezerette:

It's like a small experimental movie.
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 11:12pm Funky16Corners:

True, and in its own way, high art. There aren't many records close to it
  Wed. 7/26/17 11:13pm Carmichael:

Heya, 1st time listener for this show. What a great setlist!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/26/17 11:13pm Parq:

Well said, Geez. Agree heartily. And welcome, Carm! You gonna love it.
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 11:13pm Funky16Corners:

Welcome, and thanks!
Avatar    Wed. 7/26/17 11:14pm geezerette:

Here's the second feature.

Hi Carm!
  Wed. 7/26/17 11:16pm Carmichael:

Heya Parq. This is awesome. Putting on my smoking jacket and enjoying a martini with Jack Cassidy.
Avatar    Wed. 7/26/17 11:17pm geezerette:

Very "Playboy After Dark".
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 11:18pm Funky16Corners:

Join us in the game room?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/26/17 11:24pm coelacanth∅:

jeez, geez! haven't thought about that show in several decades. my father watched it when we were little and - knowing about playboy magazines, we were sure there must be nude ladies running around on the telly!
'never did see it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/26/17 11:26pm Parq:

Carm, the thought of jack Cassidy sipping a martini is going to warm me all through the night.
Avatar    Wed. 7/26/17 11:29pm geezerette:

It's a very odd, stilted show, but Hefner has always been a serious
jazz fan and promoter. Pop too if good.
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 11:30pm Funky16Corners:

Lots of good rock music on that show as well. Byrds, Deep Purple, Canned Heat, Sir Douglas Quintet
Avatar    Wed. 7/26/17 11:32pm geezerette:

Yes! James Brown and Tom Jones too. Lots on Youtube.
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 11:33pm Funky16Corners:

I used to have bootleg VHS that I picked up as a record show years ago that had a bunch of stuff from the show
Avatar    Wed. 7/26/17 11:33pm geezerette:

Gorgeous show tonight.
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 11:34pm Funky16Corners:

Thank you!

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 7/26/17 11:37pm coelacanth∅:

Hefner is still amongst us, i believe... still doing good things, last i knew. (despite that magazine!)
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 11:38pm Funky16Corners:

He's gotta be in his 90s by now
Avatar Wed. 7/26/17 11:43pm Funky16Corners:
