Good afternoon Tui, Space Brother Greg, and everyone!😊

Is that a Max Fleischer still?

Howdy, John! Where do you hail from? I'm in Texas.
Avatar 5:00pm TuiSnider:

Greg says it's a Fleischer still, indeed!

Hi Tui, Lake Tahoe, Ca. For the past 11 yrs. Real Smokey here at the moment.

Greg, what is the Cartoon still from?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm WR:

I think I recognize Cab Calloway in the Fleischer still.
Avatar 5:24pm TuiSnider:

Greg says: Snow White 1933 is the cartoon it's from.
Avatar 5:25pm spacebrother:

@WR - yeah the still is a rotoscoped version of Calloway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm Scott67:

Wow! Thanks Tui. The dudes in the bar background are cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm WR:

A magic mirror resembling Cab Calloway proclaims Betty Boop to be "the fairest in the land", much to the anger of the Queen. The Queen orders her guards Bimbo and Koko to behead Betty. With tears in their eyes, they take Betty into the forest; as they prepare to execute her, they spare her by destroying their weapons, but fall into a pit before they can free her. Betty escapes into a frozen river, which encloses her in a coffin of ice. This block slips downhill to the home of the seven dwarfs, who carry the frozen Betty into an enchanted cave, running into Koko and Bimbo. The evil Queen, now transformed into a witch, turns Koko into a ghost as he sings the St. James Infirmary Blues.

Hey Tui and welcome!
G'day cobber Scott! How's the situation over there? Looks like everyone is masking up here again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm WR:

I had forgot they put together Snow White story and Calloway's version of St James Infirmary Blues.
  5:28pm John R.:

Thank you WR for the info!
Avatar 5:29pm TuiSnider:

I didn't realize they rotoscoped Cab Calloway - No wonder that cartoon is so cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm WR:

Whoa, I was listening and didn't see that was Ella Fitzgerald singing Stone Cold Dead in the Market.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Feldpausch:

Hey Greg, hello Tui! Listening and working
Avatar 5:30pm TuiSnider:

WR: Yeah, Ella really put on a Caribbean accent for that one!
Avatar 5:30pm TuiSnider:

Thanks for listening, Feld! :D
Avatar 5:31pm spacebrother:

Welcome again FP!

Richard Thompson - Fairport Convention. He’s probably better known in the UK, though he got think he got US MTV play in the 80s.

As long as my friends are safe, I'm a happy camper!
Avatar 5:39pm TuiSnider:

You did, Feld? Whoop whoop! Hope you enjoy the Hands Book! (Are there any historic cemeteries near you?)

Thanks, Woofmutt!

What kind of monster steals someone's meatballs?
Avatar 5:42pm spacebrother:

A meatball monster?
Avatar 5:43pm TuiSnider:

And their ravioli, too! It's an outrage to deprive someone of their pasta!
Avatar 5:43pm spacebrother:

Stay safe, Scott.

Cheers Greg, been there before several times. It's Aitch doin it tough, wouldn't have mentioned it ifI knew he was here.✌😎

First heard People Who Died on Tui’s radio show on KZUU circa 1982.

Woofmutt - You will recognize this next song!

Tui, not sure what qualifies, but there's a super old cemetery in downtown Phoenix just a few miles from my house

We're running out of time - can't play all the songs we had planned, alas!

Uh Oh! Run outa time & cables!
  6:02pm woofmutt:

That Noah and the Whale song has one of the best views of death, the notion that the elements of our bodies can go on beyond us.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm Scott67:

Same happened to me! πŸ’¨πŸ•‘
Avatar 6:03pm HyperDose:

Thank you Greg and Tui! :D
  6:03pm woofmutt:

There are so many songs about death and dying you could do a monthly show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm WR:

Yay! Looking forward to Greg and Tui death songs part II. These were great. Great show.
