Hey, Hey, It's Meghan!

Well, this looks like it's gonna be fun. Hey, Meghan, KP.

Hello all!!

Hi Meghan and all! Not only do I always look forward to the show, but also the playlist image!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:04pm Jeff Moore:

Hey, kids!

After that Monkees intro, I've got a craving for Zilch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 12:05pm Meghan:

hahaha.... I love finding the playlist image.... I can spend hours finding something....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:05pm northguineahills:

Wait, is Peter holding a dead tree frog? That appears to be the least flattering picture of the four.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 12:06pm Meghan:

I think it's a melted ice cream cone
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:11pm northguineahills:

My neighbor's car left a dead tree frog on my back porch last week, must be why it's still fresh in my mind (it was a good 7"/18cm long). I need to stop feeding it anchovy oil and mackerel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:14pm KP:

Monkees stole from fellow Columbians!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:17pm βrian:

Your car runs on mackerel? That seems fairly sustainable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:17pm βrian:

Your neighbor's car, I mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:18pm northguineahills:

I didn't even listen to music outside of the top40 ambiance until I was 16. That's when I got my first record (the Singles sndtrk).

βrian: errr, feline? Having a car on my back porch would be somewhat problematic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:19pm northguineahills:

Amanda Nazario loves the Monkees!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:21pm βrian:

I think that's a melted ice cream cone that Peter is holding — the universal symbol of disappointment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 12:22pm annie:

whew!!! i made it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:26pm KP:

Love Seldom Scene. Saw original lineup @NYU back when.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:27pm Parq:

Funny seeing Mickey in that Sheik of Araby outfit. It sort of presages his appearance as an Egyptian nobleman (and bad guy) in the Broadway production of Disney's "Aida".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:27pm northguineahills:

Seldom Scene, new to me, and my grass the blues!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:28pm northguineahills:

ok, no more grammaring /spelling for me....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 12:28pm Meghan:

hahahaha NGH.....

Parq- It's one of the scenes from Head
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:29pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Amanda is subbing for Dave the Spazz tonight, so more chance for Monkee mahem at nine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:40pm doctorjazz:

Hey Underwater Dwellers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 12:41pm Meghan:

afternoon doctorjazz!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:46pm Parq:

Never saw Head. Started to watch it once, got as far as the opening concert footage, had to turn it off for some now-forgotten reason, and never got back to it. This makes me a cultural veg-out, I accept that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:46pm northguineahills:

The muppets are Disney, so good luck w/ us seeing them on Netflix anymore.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 12:49pm Meghan:

Head was a movie that made zero sense.... but Frank Zappa is in it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:49pm βrian:

Streaming difficulties here on the isthmus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:51pm Jeff Moore:

I was about to ask if anyone was experiencing stream interruptions - I've had it cut out a few times here at the Magic Factory.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 12:52pm Dave B:

a little bit me...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 12:55pm Dave B:

I want to hear Dolphin Song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 12:58pm Meghan:

GASP! I can't find the Porpoise Song! I had pulled it and now I can't find it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 12:58pm northguineahills:

I'm on the phone app (commenting on my work pc), and I haven't had any problems....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 12:59pm Listener Bob in PGH:

Was having problems with the stream but now it is fine
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 1:00pm annie:

yes, the stream cut out on me, too... glad it wasn't just my tuner..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 1:01pm Dave B:

And dammit - NOW I just had a moment of clarity on a cover tune. The Monkees song "Zilch" from "Headquarters" was kinda/sorta referenced/checked by Del The Funky Homosapien in the song "Mr Doubalina"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 1:03pm Dave B:

or rather "Mista Doubalina"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 1:05pm Dave B:

And Run DMC's riiff on "Mary Mary" from "Tougher Than Leather"
  Thu. 1/11/18 1:07pm Alex in Illinois:

I forgot that the schedule is in EST, so I missed the first hour. Dang.
  Thu. 1/11/18 1:09pm Alex in Illinois:

The Beatles said that The Monkees were the Marx Brothers, and Mike Nesmith agreed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 1:11pm northguineahills:

I'm in my b section in my car, so I just listened to Revolver yesterday (I'll be in the b's for the next few months).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 1:13pm northguineahills:

I love the shoutouts to the last two PMs (at the time of the recording) in this song
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 1:14pm Dave B:

well done!
  Thu. 1/11/18 1:14pm Alex in Illinois:

I remember this from an episode in which Peter sells his soul to the Devil.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 1:16pm βrian:

Does the Devil accept BitCoin?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 1:19pm Meghan:

I was reminded of the Fairy Tale episode last night. I completely forgot about that one
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 1:21pm Parq:

When the Monkees were on TV, it was a cool thing to know that the closing theme was called "For Pete's Sake".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 1:23pm northguineahills:

I only remember the Monkees (on tv) on syndication when I was in the 3rd grade and younger.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 1:24pm Dave B:

I wonder if this song is intended as a slagging of the Beatles.

Scouse is the term for Merseyside English...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 1:25pm Dave B:

Randy in Scottish useage can mean rude. and a Git is well... a git.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 1:27pm Meghan:

The phrase "Randy Scouse Git" in Britain directly translated to, according to Dolenz, "horny, Liverpudlian jerk"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 1:28pm Dave B:

HAHA!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 1:28pm northguineahills:

Ok, off to lunch, hear ya at home!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 1:29pm Meghan:

According to Dolenz, the song was written about a party that The Beatles threw for the Monkees at the Speakeasy nightclub in London. There are references in the song to the Beatles ("the four kings of EMI") and to other party attendees such as Cass Elliot of The Mamas & the Papas ("the girl in yellow dress")[1] and Dolenz's future wife, Top of the Pops "disc girl" Samantha Juste ("She's a wonderful lady"), ("the being known as Wonder Girl").[2] The verses and chorus do not relate to each other, with the verses whimsically describing the party and the chorus consisting of Dolenz screaming bigoted remarks at an unseen, long-haired youth

ooh this is fun
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 1:49pm Parq:

Parenthetical note: Riu Riu Chiu is one of those traditional Christmas songs that nobody knows and everybody knows. It's usually performed a capella, but there's a great version with instrumentation on Bruce Cockburn's Christmas album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 1:53pm Sem:

Where would the writers of love songs be if the word for sand that didn't rhyme with hand?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 1:54pm Jeff Golick:

Probably off pounding sand, with their mitts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/11/18 1:55pm Jeff Golick:

(Hi, @Meghan, and UTPers.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 1:55pm Sem:

hahaHAHAHAHA.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 2:04pm Sem:

Well, nobody is gonna top Nina, I think.. This has been great, Meghan. Thanks a lot for the effort on this pretty great show. See you and all next time. Bye!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 2:07pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Which came first, the Groovie Ghoulies band or cartoon TV show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 2:09pm doctorjazz:

Thanks,Meghan, fun show!
