Options Mid-Valley Mutations with Austin Rich: Playlist from January 18, 2022 Options

austinrich's avatar View austinrich's profile Options

A combination of collage, new experimental records and other bits and bobs, Mid-Valley Mutations is a tour through the mind of Austin Rich, who has been broadcasting in some form since 1998. Heavily influenced by Dr Demento, Don Joyce and old fashioned College Radio, Austin creates Audio Essays on a variety of subjects, and even just plays records, from time to time. Sometimes Live music and Interviews will grace the program, helping create a situation where you don't really know what you're going to hear, when you tune in. What you need to know is when you enter the Mid-Valley region, be prepared for the Musical Mutations... in whatever form they take.

David Seville was the stage name of Ross Bagdasarian, which he later used as the name of the fictional manager of his cartoon band Alvin and the Chipmunks.

I love the classics
Avatar 🎸 9:04pm Xeres:

The sped-up tape technique used for the vocals on "Witch Doctor" in 1958, became the signature sound of the Chipmunks later that year on the hit single "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late.)"

There used to be a show in PDX called "Sound Judgement." Lots of indie rock and stuff like that.

Sea Shanties are normal music?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:08pm Austin Rich:

Make sure to check the screen for more information! This should be running on all the TV Networks broadcasting in the Mid-Valley.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08pm Mr Fab:

Yes, Sea Shanties are normal music, but land shanties are weird.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Austin Rich:

I heard a Land Shanty warning of Land Sharks. I assume that's related?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Krys O.:

Gary Paxton of the Hollywood Argyles had a connection to Tammy Faye Bakker.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Sonderangebot:

Land shanties are Einsturzende Neubauten-sounding like!

I'm assuming that this is the song that Hasil Atkins is referencing on his album, "Look At That Caveman Go!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm StringOFperils:

I've seen Alex Chilton play Alley Oop...he said it was genius too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm Mr Fab:

I heard Kim Fowley was somehow involved, too.

yes, Austin, and Bowie's "Life on Mars."
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:11pm Krys O.:

Paxton and Fowley were roommates.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11pm DJ Babs:

I remember this song from my youngest of childhood and I think it's why I love garage music.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:12pm Austin Rich:

True story: when I ran Karaoke at a bar in Portland, a guy would come in with his own discs, and want to sing this song. And he would change the lyrics to something... very awful. It was really uncomfortable, but he tipped VERY well. It was weird.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm DJ Babs:

It holds up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm DJ Babs:

That's....super creepy Rich! LOL
Avatar 🎸 9:12pm Xeres:

LOL @ karaoke dude
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:13pm StringOFperils:

Yeah, there's a weird short story there...wonder what that guy's deal was.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:13pm Austin Rich:

I have a lot of Karaoke stories. Been meaning to turn it into a short story someday.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:13pm Austin Rich:

The song is suggestive enough... you don't have to change it at all.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:14pm WR:

When looking to see which of Saville / Bagdasarian or Sheb Wooley were first with the slow / fast singing and I learned of Mike Sammes doing UK puppet show characters Pinky and Perky. Any y'all deep collectors heard any of those?
Avatar 🎸 9:14pm Xeres:

Napoleon XIV was a pseudonym for Jerry Samuels. The B-side of this single - released in 1966 - was the A-side played in reverse. And the B-side label was a mirror image of the A-side.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm DJ Babs:

This tune still disturbs me, lol.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Austin Rich:

Another true story: I have a tape my friend Colin made me of a remix of this song, with about four other versions of this song, all mixed together. I should play that on the show someday...
Avatar 🎸 9:15pm Xeres:

WR thanks for that, I had been wondering who did it first.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:15pm Austin Rich:

Sheb Wooley is coming!
  9:16pm rebecca:

this is SO ridiculously good!! thank you!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:16pm Austin Rich:

The best part of "They're Coming To Take Me Away" is that it isn't long. It only SEEMS long in our memory.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:16pm Austin Rich:

Thanks, rebecca!
  9:17pm Ellen:

Austin, which song did you remix with Colin?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:17pm WR:

I first heard TCTTMAHH done by a couple of young (a bit older than I was) black gents were doing it. I thought it was a black thing and then soon after saw Napoleon XIV on Johnny Carson.
  9:17pm rebecca:

you're welcome, glad to catch you live!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Austin Rich:

Ellen: They're Coming To Take Me Away, Ha Ha.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Austin Rich:

And: Great to see you in the chat, Ellen! Ellen put on some of the best shows I got to see, pre-Pandemic.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Krys O.:

Sheb Wooley makes me think of Scopitones.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Austin Rich:

I genuinely love this "The Blob" song so much. I've been toying with doing a cover, but I don't have a voice like this...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm DJ Babs:

Ah yes! This made our Halloween show, lol! It's so fun!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:19pm Krys O.:

One of Burt's best tunes.
  9:19pm Ellen:

I grew up listening to Doctor Demento on the down low, hiding an ancient artifact of a transistor radio under my pillow. I had found it in my parents' basement and smuggled it upstairs. I got to tell this story to Doctor Demento himself, at World Con in Reno
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:19pm WR:

I forgot to add, it was at a Rolling Stones concert in about 1966. These guys were sitting behind us and started doing TCTTMAHH every time there was delay between bands.
Avatar 🎸 9:19pm Xeres:

Some of the tunes from this set are often heard in Halloween compilations, but I think they stand on their own year-'round.
  9:19pm Ellen:

Thank you, Austin; you were essential to what made them so great! I love collaborating with you and I miss you. Also there's a funny story about The Blob
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:19pm Austin Rich:

That "pop" is the OG Pop in a "pop" song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm Mr Fab:

it really is a Bacharach classic, i'm glad others agree. It don't get much respect.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:20pm WR:

Xeres, regarding the sequence of when they came out, I just go by the Wikipedia for Sheb Wooley.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:20pm Austin Rich:

In fact, Xeres and I played together in "The Olsen Twins Ghostlight Ensemble" at one of Ellen's shows, pre-pandemic.
  9:20pm Ellen:

My uncle was a Hollywood lawyer. He was trying to get Steve McQueen to agree to something. He sang the Beware of the Blob theme to him to get him on board
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:20pm Krys O.:

@Ellen: My mom liked Dr. Demento. OTOH she hated when my dad watched wrestling on TV and he had to slink off and watch it on the down low.
Avatar 🎸 9:21pm Xeres:

Oh, THAT Ellen! Hi Ellen!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:21pm Austin Rich:

Louis! Ha! It's Napoleon! Boy, wow botched that one?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:22pm Krys O.:

Andy Griffith's TV gf, Helen (Aneta Coursaut) was Steve's date in the Blob.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:22pm WR:

Funny Krys O. Was there more than one TV in the house or did your dad have to visit a friend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm Otis:

Throwing in another vote for Bacharach Blob Bits. Never gets old.
  9:22pm Ellen:

Yes, it's me! Hi, Xeres! I really loved The Olsen Twins Ghostlight Ensemble set. @Krys O. I am really enjoying your comments, thank you
  9:23pm Ellen:

@Austin are you saying that is the etymology of "pop music"?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Austin Rich:

This story is true: I saw / met Dr. D one night. It was a lot of fun. He was hilarious, and very drunk.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:24pm Krys O.:

My dad would find TVs on the street and fix them. We had little portables all over. My first TV of my very own was a 9" B&W unit.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Austin Rich:

True again: I have visited the Reed College station a few times, and we did a few hours of shows one night. Tons of fun. It's a tiny station... but we had a blast.
  9:25pm Ellen:

@Austin I'm sorry that I didn't ever get to see Doctor Demento perform live, I only met him in passing. He really liked my story, though, and thanked me for telling him it.
  9:25pm Ellen:

I'm Jewish, I grew up listening to Allan Sherman! I love the whole My Son, the Celebrity album
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Krys O.:

LOL! I sang a poppy punky cover of this and it used to get played on WFMU's Greasy Kids Stuff show.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Austin Rich:

It was one of those Reed College shows he put on every year for the students. A LOT of people where there, but we could all sit and meet him afterwards. He was very patient for people who he thought were Reed Students.
Avatar 🎸 9:26pm Xeres:

We're featuring quite a bit of Jewish genius on this evening's program.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Krys O.:

Allan Sherman died on my 10th birthday.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Austin Rich:

I do love that Greasy Kids Stuff.
  9:27pm Ellen:

I have some friends who are Reedies. I can only imagine. I was a DJ on WCBN in Ann Arbor. @Krys O I would love to here you

I think Shel Silverstein was the EARLIEST subversive thing that I encountered as a kid that I really gelled with. I loved those books.
  9:28pm Ellen:

@Xeres that's fantastic. I was a Shel Silverstein fan as a kid. There's no comparing anyone else's readings of his work with his own over-the-top vocalizations
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Austin Rich:

@WR: I need to hear that.
Avatar 🎸 9:29pm Xeres:

It's weird how he got to write children's books on the one hand, while also writing stoner classics.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Austin Rich:

Those Dr. Hook songs are pretty good, too.
  9:30pm Ellen:

I found my dad's Tom Lehrer album. It stood out because it was a different size than all the other records. I was hooked
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Austin Rich:

That must have been one of the 10" records, Ellen?

Nordine!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:31pm Austin Rich:

I genuinely think that Ken Nordine is an important piece of literature that every person should study. His voice is incredible, across a very vast body of work. Singular.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Austin Rich:

@HyperDose: That album is very important.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:33pm WR:

First heard Ken Nordine on one of his short syndicated radio shows. I just recently found that someone has added many of them to Archive.org.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:33pm Austin Rich:

Yes, @WR! I figured that out, too! I did a run of them last year... they're so great.

twas decades after i first heard this that i found out this a parody of Gilbert and Sullivan's "I Am The Very Model of a Modern Soldier."
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:37pm Austin Rich:

Mr. Perry, my High School Chemistry Teacher, could sing this song from memory. He was a huge Lehrer fan, and actually saw him a couple times WAY back when.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:38pm Austin Rich:

Xeres: we should have included They Might Be Giants, "The Sun Is A Mass of Incandescent Gas" in this set."
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:38pm Austin Rich:

Mr. Fab: I certainly didn't know it was a parody until MANY years after I heard the Lehrer version.
Avatar 🎸 9:38pm Xeres:

@Austin: next year!
  9:39pm Ellen:

@Austin Yes, 10-inch album, and thank you, I needed that! :) That is the most impressive tongue-twister of any songs that I can remember! There was an episode of Gilmore Girls in which Luke's daughter April sings The Elements but much slower!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:39pm Austin Rich:

I used to have this one memorized, as a youth.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Austin Rich:

Earnestly, I hadn't given Allan Sherman much of a chance until Demento opened my eyes. I just thought he didn't have the same scope as a lot of other novelty artists, and I was sort of wrong. My bad.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:42pm Austin Rich:

See, a Lenny Bruce joke? It's just... weird...
Avatar 🎸 9:43pm Xeres:

Allan Sherman's "Downtown" is pretty hilarious, too.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:43pm Austin Rich:

Henry Mancini is another artist that I truly feel is an important part of musical history.

Avatar 🎸 9:44pm Xeres:

Your background music choices are great, Austin.
Avatar 🎸 9:46pm Xeres:

Dr. Demento has a cameo appearance as a bum in the official video for "Fish Heads." The song was first released as a single in 1978, before its video was made in 1980, when it was aired on Saturday Night Live, and was subsequently given heavy rotation on MTV. The video includes a prolonged introduction before the music starts. Demento appears during this introduction, at around the 1:17 mark. Here's a link to the video:

This Barnes & Barnes album is truly a wonder. There is nothing else like it, except maybe Crispin Glover's albums.
Avatar 9:47pm Kitschy Mama:

Oo fish heads is such a pleasure.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:47pm Austin Rich:

"... yeah."
  9:48pm Ellen:

@Austin, yet another reason for me to be in awe of you :) As for Lenny Bruce, there is a talented actor portraying him in the excellent show, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. It's perhaps a bit romanticized version of him, but very charming, and his portrayer won an Emmy for it. Wow, I've never heard a Crispin Glover album, but I have heard that he is quite unusual
Avatar 🎸 9:48pm Xeres:

You people are easily amused, LOL!
  9:49pm Ellen:

I love the complexity of timing of this song.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:49pm Austin Rich:

I've been meaning to check out that Mrs. Maisel show, but there's just not enough hours in the day. So it goes. One of these days I'll be able to check it out.

The titular song on Monster Walks the Winter Lake by David Thomas and the Pedestrians is based on this Playmates song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm StringOFperils:

I did not know that, Krys O
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:50pm Austin Rich:

As mentioned in the show, Xeres wrote the script for all the voice overs, and I added some bits during my bits. Xeres selected all the songs, but certainly, I was on board for all of these. There were a couple that I was unfamiliar with. The next two were new to me until Xeres hipped me to them.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Austin Rich:

@Krys O: I need to relisten, with that in mind!
  9:51pm Ellen:

As a spoken-word performer myself, I appreciated the Ken Nordine word jazz. I should hear more of that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Mr Fab:

that's funny, Krys. Pretty sure i bought that album years ago, but don't really remember it.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Austin Rich:

I could listen to that Ken Nordine stuff all the time. It's so good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm Mr Fab:

lest we forget, Shel Silverstein also wrote Johnny Cash's "A Boy Named Sue."
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:53pm Austin Rich:

Technically, this Dana Lyons song was from after the OG era that I listened to Dr. D. I sort of stopped listening to new episodes around the end of High School. I was listening to a lot of other stuff then, and he just fell away.
  9:53pm Ellen:

I remember seeing Dana Lyons perform in Eugene when I was part of the proofreading collective at Earth First! when it was being published in Eugene. He was really into Earth First.
Avatar 🎸 9:53pm Xeres:

So Austin tells me this Dana Lyons guy is a right-wing jerk..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm Mr Fab:

well he is into guns...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:54pm Austin Rich:

He's got a lot of "pro gun" songs, outside of this one.
Avatar 🎸 9:55pm Xeres:

But Earth First is lefty. Guess it goes to show you the spectrum wraps all the way around backwards.

While this tune, "Mr. Custer" lacks cultural sensitivity, at least the white dudes lose.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Austin Rich:

This Larry Verne song was also new to me.
  9:56pm Ellen:

There were some definite vegans in EF! who helped me out when I was running Food Not Bombs, and then there were hunters who would bag their own deer for dinner, and both were EF!
  9:57pm Ellen:

This song is new to me as well.
Avatar 🎸 9:58pm Xeres:

I believe I first heard it on a Dr. D compilation.
  9:58pm davefromtoronto:

wow - i had this on "funny funky hits" a million years ago.
  9:58pm Ellen:

Seeing "b/w" in a lot of the descriptors makes me miss collecting 45s. I also had a couple ancient 78s. My dad had a 16 if I recall correctly. He's an avid collector with literally thousands of vinyl records.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:59pm WR:

Mr. Custer was one of the first 45s I bought as a kid! This sounds different than what I remember. Looking to see if there were multiple versions or 60s years is too long to remember reliably.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:59pm Austin Rich:

This was sort of a theme in pop music in that era, a lot of rock and roll was appropriating native American imagery for music. I'm sure you could do a whole show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm Mr Fab:

Yep, I had "Mr Custer" on KTel's "Goofy Greats." 1975.
  10:00pm Ellen:

I had this album (Steve Martin)

And then there's Egyptian appropriation...

The Steve Martin albums and the George Carlin albums were essential listening among my friends growing up. We used to quote these all the time.

It's time for your antique record of the program...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:06pm Austin Rich:

In reading about this song, I realize that it is an ANSWER song to another song that was also popular at the time. Maybe we should do ANSWER song someday, Xeres?
Avatar 🎸 10:06pm Xeres:

I call this set of tunes "Peachy Keen"
  10:07pm Ellen:

This is amusing. Wow I didn't know that was a thing. Answer songs? Like...songs written in direct response to other songs, as though they were a challenge?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:07pm Austin Rich:

I'm sure everyone knows that Billy Murray was like the Michael Jackson of his era: he just sold records like crazy, for the time. Super Popular. But is almost only remembered by record nerds these days. (Unless you listen to WFMU, then he's very well known.)

Ellen: Yeah! It's like you answer the questions they leave open in the other song.
  10:08pm Ellen:

That sounds amazing. I'd be very curious to know the history of such and hear some examples. By the way, you're completely making my day, thank you for inviting me to the chat.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:08pm Austin Rich:

I remember, as a youth, before I'd heard this song, a kid was singing it, and I thought he was hilarious! How funny was this kid who kept almost swearing! Only later did I realize he stole the jokes...
Avatar 🎸 10:09pm Xeres:

I thought this was by Benny Bell?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Austin Rich:

It's complicated... there's a whole backstory. Paul Wynn is the singer, but Benny Bell is the writer.
  10:10pm Ellen:

I love the saxophone
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Austin Rich:

And, of course, your token "Spike Jones" for the program.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Mr Fab:

But the record is credited to Benny Bell. (At least mine is.)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:11pm Austin Rich:

Hmmmm. Maybe my research is off? Will have to check...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:11pm Austin Rich:

I've loved everything Spike Jones put to record, but that should be obvious by now; I think I've included something in almost every show... almost.
  10:12pm Ellen:

I remember Der Fuhrer's Face with the raspberry

this is the album I have: www.discogs.com...

We didn't play that one, but that one is pretty amazing, Ellen.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Austin Rich:

I've been looking for a copy of that album, Mr. Fab. I only have a cassette dub.
Avatar 🎸 10:14pm Xeres:

"Lydia, the Tattooed Lady" first appeared in the Marx Brothers movie At the Circus (1939).
  10:14pm Ellen:

I also love Spike Jonze (director of Being John Malkovich)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Austin Rich:

I think that's the version that's included here...
Avatar 🎸 10:14pm Xeres:

Groucho singlehandedly shut down Wall Street for 15 minutes in 1950, when he took over a microphone on the trading floor of the New York Stock Exhange to tell jokes and to sing this song. Trading was suspended so that everyone could enjoy the performance.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Austin Rich:

I think I could just watch Marx Brothers movies over and over again and not feel like i'm missing much.
  10:14pm Ellen:

So I swear I have a memory of this song sung by Kermit the Frog on the Muppet Show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm Mr Fab:

Ellen, this was Jim Henson's favorite song. It was played at his funeral.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:15pm Austin Rich:

I've known so many Lydia's in my day.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Austin Rich:

That's because Mr. Henson has perfect taste, Mr. Fab. It's a brilliant song.
  10:16pm Ellen:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHXZA_5XMJ4 @Mr. Fab that's extraordinary
  10:17pm Ellen:

@Xeres that's amazing. I would love a recording of that but I imagine there aren't any
  10:17pm Ellen:

I am genuinely learning a lot from this chat. I should have screen shotted some of it
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:17pm Austin Rich:

I also believe The Coasters are an important part of any well rounded American Education. Yeah, you can quote Shakespeare? But what about The Coasters?
  10:18pm Ellen:

I am definitely curious what The Snake and the Book Worm sounds like. I definitely grew up a book worm, and now I read books for a living
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm Mr Fab:

WFMU's archives are up forever, Ellen! Revisit this show any time.
Avatar 🎸 10:18pm Xeres:

Pretty much everything the Coasters did was both a novelty tune, and an R&B classic at the same time.
  10:18pm Ellen:

That's a seductive baritone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19pm Mr Fab:

"The Snake and the Book Worm" is another good one, about a would-be seducer.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:20pm Austin Rich:

I will follow up on the Paul Wynn / Benny Bell story. I'm not finding the source I was looking at, which is making me think I'm wrong...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm Mr Fab:

"both a novelty tune, and an R&B classic at the same time" - well said!
  10:20pm Ellen:

The Coasters had a lot of great tunes.
Avatar 🎸 10:20pm Xeres:

Red Ingle was frontman for Spike Jones & His City Slickers, until he quit in 1946 over a salary dispute, and formed his own band, Red Ingle & The Natural Seven. "Serutan Yob" is a parody of "Nature Boy," which in turn was written by Eden Ahbez and made popular by Nat King Cole in 1948.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm Otis Fodder:

Serutan Yob leads me back to the chat. Natures Boy, ahem.

I've never heard this before.

My dad used to recite the monologue from this from memory.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:22pm Austin Rich:

I have been told that there's a bit of a controversy about who wrote "Pop Corn." I had a roommate that said that this Russian version predates all of them, but I can't find a source for that either. So: Maybe?
  10:23pm Ellen:

I have the same birthday as Jim Henson. I found out when I randomly met one of his sons at a party on Long Island (way before there was Google). It made me happy
Avatar 🎸 10:23pm Xeres:

Popcorn is one of the few 45 singles that I still have from when I was a teen.

A Russian original would be interesting, just know it from Kingsley on and maybe, predated by The Percolator?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm Mr Fab:

Nope, Gershon Kingsley is Mr Popcorn. Reject Soviet popcorn propaganda!

I used to use buying King Missile albums as a pretext for talking to a record store girl that I was crushing on. This was while I was working at a bookstore across the way.

I liked the idea that a bookstore boy and a record store girl would have met and dated... but it didn't happen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Mr Fab:

Yep , Hot Butter covered Gershon's 1st Moog Quartet.

I saw Mr. Bungle live with Jonathan Christ from the Cathead days.

"Detachable Penis" is the usual King Missle go-to. Good tune, but nice to hear something else of theirs for a change.

Such a small world. I love our shared history. It was dream-come-true territory to collaborate with you on so many shows pre-pandemic

What was the inspiration for Cheesecake Truck, Xeres?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Austin Rich:

"A couple of blokes said that he was a hoax so they cut him to pieces and wrote a thesis."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Mr Fab:

the idea of a Cheesecake Truck was a wacky idea in the '90s, but now there probably is such a thing.
Avatar 🎸 10:30pm Xeres:

I mean, so much King Missile to choose from. But didn't "Cheesecake" come up in one of these chats in Sheena's room? I think I was influenced by that.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:30pm Austin Rich:

Good point, Mr. Fab! I like to point out that the Convenience Store scenes in "Heathers" don't play the same anymore, because stores are now like that.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:31pm Austin Rich:

I earnestly love most of the Bongwater catalog. They have a lot of under rated songs.
  10:31pm Ellen:

I remember this song! Love Ann Magnuson
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm Mr Fab:

"The platypus is kind of a novelty animal." - ha! I like the idea of other novelty things besides songs.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:32pm Austin Rich:

I was online friends with a gal who was friends with Ann Magnuson, and was on some Bongwater recordings. I was trying to interview this gal, but she passed before I could.

I think Schlong is Austin's favorite band.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Austin Rich:

I think that Schlong are the single greatest prog-punk band out of that mid-90's crop of weirdos. But of course, Schlong sort of get forgotten these days. They have a documentary coming soon, that should be out maybe this year?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Austin Rich:

The Schlong complete cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Rumors," called "Tumors," and condenses the entire album into a 12 minutes 7", is pretty amazing.

If you want robot songs, Servotron delivers, for my money. Should have included some. Next time.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Austin Rich:

There was a Eugene band, Mondale, that had a lot of nerdy songs, and even sang in Computer Script. They would count off their songs "0 1 0 1" and stuff like that.

Good night all, off to shut down. Great picks/set here Xeres & AR... wow, nice way to jet out with The Rutles (and still a fav album!)

jello Biafra had a bit about band names, and thought it would be great if a hair-metal band called themselves "Mondale." Guess someone (not necessarily metal) took him up on it.

What time on Mondays, and what theme? Here on this same station? How did you connect with it? Oh I remember Ruth Buzzy I think from Hee Haw
