Hi Rex, Was that Summits track released on CD?
Avatar 🌮 1:13pm ChrisB.:

Yes! Allan Melvin, the hardest working man in sitcom history. Name a program he wasn't on.

Avatar 1:16pm glenn:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Sam The Butcher...who was not, in fact, a murderous 19th century thug.
Avatar 1:20pm mrsoule:

Allan Melvin had at least two different roles on Dick Van Dyke.
Avatar 1:22pm Daddy-O:

Rabbit Action !!!! You know the little white rabbit got drunk on sneaky pete.
Avatar 1:24pm Richie:

...he was also Barney Hefner!
Avatar 1:25pm Richie:

Umm...also not a murderous 19th century thug.
  1:31pm hazmania:

Charlie Hacker on Gomer Pyle; hacker, butcher, I see a pattern
  1:33pm hazmania:

Also threatened to kick Barney's ass on Andy Griffith, if I recall correctly
Avatar 1:34pm Daddy-O:

Dave, times Square Stomp is on a cd called The History of Times square Records that comes with a book of the same name
  1:37pm Cedar Pauls:

Count Five was from San Jose.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Greg from Bloomfield:

No offense, but the fact that Smash Mouth hails from San Jose automatically cancels out anything positive the city may have given us.

Duck Winehead, Duck!

Rex, Are songs about ugly girls going to be the theme of your marathon premium CD?
  1:48pm Listener Jumpy in Brooklyn:

I had a premonition Rex would play "If You Ain't Got No Bread."
  1:48pm Listener Jumpy in Brooklyn:

...not because of anything going on in own life!
  1:58pm Greta DeLapp:

Could you play Tarzan by Ape Quintet? That song is so funny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Dear Citizens of the Fool's Paradise Comments Section,
Please see that "Sardines" is played at my funeral.
Thank you.
  2:14pm Elder Beck:

...w'zat Rev James L. King?

You mean like this ?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm eyenoise:

Rex: Do you have a phone # for Detroit Dragway so I can call to see if they have tickets left for tonight?
Avatar 🌮 2:25pm Tony in Durham NC:

Any chop suey on the menu today, waiter?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm fred:

I just spent a couple of hours on a job interview skill test. Now volume is up on the computer, I trust Rex to cleanse every trace of that slimy experience. I'm pissed off I missed so much of the show.
(Sorry, I needed to vent)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm fred:

@Tony: speaking of menu, my brother just located a place that sells soba noodles in Paris. He gave me a nice stash, but I need to know where he got them. I just love these
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Greg from Bloomfield:

@fred—I feel you. I HATE those things. Last place that gave me a skill test on a disc, I got home and threw it in the garbage.

@Greg: let's just forget about this crap. You may have been reckless throwing it out: friends have told me such disks can be useful as bird repellant on fruit trees, or as archery targets
  2:38pm Danny:

Detroit Dragway opened in 1959 and owner Gil Kohen and promoter Ben Christ came up with the radio commercial "Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!" The track went downhill starting in the 1980s. In 1991 the weekend spectator turnout was around 500 people. The track was to be renovated with a multi-million dollar deal in 1994. Local politics never gave the track a chance. The last year for the track was 1998.

Paris, Texas?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm fred:

@Tony: Unfortunately, that was Paris, France
