Ok, but I signed in so I wouldn't have to do math. But once the beat picked up I now like 7/32 of this.
Avatar 10:00am βrian:

  10:39am Robert:

I remember the XFL telecasts using this music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39am Bob W.:

The image of Bob and Ray was lifted from the video (which I played on air) on YouTube. I first saw it as part of an exhibition about beer in NY State a few years ago at the NY Historical Museum.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39am Jeezy:

Wow. What's the name of this artist?!

Haha... just kiddin!

This set is setting me a giggle. Hats off to ya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58am BDR:

What is this bed music after the Bud commercial?
  10:59am Robert:

Aw, too bad, Bob W. I was hoping to see again the Piels coasters I hadn't seen in 50 years. Why do families always get rid of stuff like that? The only one whose caption I remember went: "Coasters? I thought we were posing for posters." "Smile anyway, Bert."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01am Bob W.:

Bed music is Bert Kaempfert, "That Happy Feeling."
Avatar 11:09am steve:

but only 58% of all people know that glenn
  11:09am Great Mewler:

Love this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12am BDR:

Thanks, I flashed back to 1962 when I was three.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29am coelacanth:

Robert, Google is your friend when it comes to vintage ephemera like beer coasters:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30am Carmichael:

Great, now I have to get up and jump around ....
  11:30am Robert:

Thanks so much, Ms. Wing.
  11:39am Great Mewler:

Well, would not have predicted this spin. Losing my powers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47am BDR:

Now you're trolling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47am Bob W.:

Yeah, that's right -- Elton John! Singing about a Jamaican prostitute!
Avatar 11:49am Dr. Goot:

Love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49am blee:

Shouldn't he be singing about Island Boys?
  11:50am Andy the painter:

hey bob. I remember when you played this Elton john song awhile back and we talked abt you hearing it on the car radio with yer folks back in the day and realizing it was about a prostitute.
Avatar 11:50am Slater:

  11:52am Andy the painter:

ach. took too long typing....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53am Bob W.:

That's right! I did play it before. So many songs from youth on the car radio that I had no idea were about sex, drugs and the like!
Avatar 11:55am steve:

i give today's program a rating of 17, which is pretty damn good
  11:56am Ike:

Loving the show Bob. For a sec I thought Elton was singing "I like girls" not "island girl"
