At that house-warming party, Lilly Pulitzer is standing around bleating "But -- but -- I just made her voters' clothes!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm listener james from westwood:

"If the right people had been in charge of Nixon's funeral, his casket would have been launched into one of those open-sewage canals that empty into the ocean just south of Los Angeles. He was a swine of a man and a jabbering dupe of a president. Nixon was so crooked that he needed servants to help him screw his pants on every morning. Even his funeral was illegal. He was queer in the deepest way. His body should have been burned in a trash bin."

This is a sublime satire by Peter Cook again about politicians & biased judges. A sad case from over thirty years ago.

James from W, well do I remember the pious burbling after Nixon died, cheer-led by that well known left wing radical, Bill Clinton. He was dead, so we all had to talk about how *colorful* he was! Phooey.

@Uncle Michael - Here you go -- Bob Speake's final baseball card, as far as I can tell.

Bruce Speake told me that his cousin, a printer, has made him a poster for the dental office with the fronts and backs of all four cards. It's not there yet.

This Get Back Satan cut is great. Is the rest of that album like this?

The interesting thing is: The Giants hardly used him at all, in his final season. He departed before the All-Star break, for what reason I do not know.

@Parq I remember Hunter Thompson giving Nixon a brutal goodbye in the pages of Rolling Stone. One of the few though.

The most cutting goodbye is no goodbye at all; Hunter Thompson on Nixon, however abusive, is almost like a tribute.

No, the very much not dead Larry Storch was on F Troop.

No Michael looks good though. I tend to prefer small club meetings. Hoping to go to Brands Hatch this weekend for a bike meeting. Taking my daughter to Sunderland on Sat. Then back down on Sun. Got an urge to get a bike but it is no fun on the roads these days. You have to ride defensively.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm pacific standard simon:

My ultimate Annette song is "The Monkey's Uncle", with The Beach Boys (although "Dream Boy", to the tune of "Funiculi Funicula" is pretty cool, too).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm Parq:

"Monkey's Uncle" is possibly the single earliest memory I have of something that got frequent airplay on FMU.

I gave up motorcycles because they're too stressful to ride amongst the cluelessly operated cars.
