I hear Burt! Hey!
Avatar 7:09pm dale:

i don't believe i've ever seen casino royle. but it looks lika matt helm or our man flyntt thing, so it goes to the top of the list.
  7:10pm V Priceless:

One of my fave soundtracks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Mike East:

casino royale is pretty silly
  7:21pm P-90:

Where did Burt's picture go? That looked cool.
  7:23pm P-90:

Never heard this cover of the After the Fox theme, cool find.
Avatar 7:24pm dale:

these screen grabs from the films are great. as is the music.
  7:25pm V Priceless:

Great show, Devon! Burt rules! He used to have a restaurant near where I am on Long Island.
Avatar 7:28pm Devon E. Levins:

Let's get Burt on the radio show! He's touring Europe and then out to San Diego this summer. Still very active.
  7:31pm V Priceless:

Great idea and I bet he'd do it!
Avatar 7:33pm JakeGould:

FWIW, the pure black text and the B&W pic of Burt himself are hard to read.
Avatar 7:34pm JakeGould:

I think Burt’s pic was just dark to be readable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@JakeGould - I found it hard to read as well, but ctrl-a on the keyboard makes the letters reverse-image and much easier to read.
  7:35pm P-90:

You know DJ Devon, if you got in touch with Burt through whoever handles his press, he might very well grant at least a short phone interview...
Avatar 7:39pm Devon E. Levins:

Took the photo down b/c you couldn't read the comments...
Avatar 7:39pm dale:

wow - that illustrator wanted to give doris some hooters. and make all three of them look like morons.
Avatar 7:42pm JakeGould:

That Doris Day illustration looks like someone in the art department just grabbed some generic sketch of a woman and just tweaked it to be “Doris Day”-like.
  7:43pm Charlie:

Wonderful vocal sound. This is a very good program.
  7:44pm phat:

This is really, really entertaining. Thank you.
Avatar 7:44pm dale:

dubba da dubba dubba da to you too.
  7:50pm V Priceless:

Fab show Devon! Thanks!
Avatar 7:51pm dale:

the man who shot by pitney was never used in the film.

- Bill Kelly RIP
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I like the opening whistling tune from "My Name is Trinity" - youtu.be... I also enjoy the whole movie.
  7:56pm V Priceless:

!!!! I had no idea Burt wrote this?!
Avatar 7:57pm dale:

pitney sang a ton of bacharach, 24 hours from tulsa, true love never runs smooth were the ones that were the biggies.
  7:58pm V Priceless:

The Blob, that is!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm Gaylord Fields:

@dale: You rang? But I agree, every week Devin does my dream show, none more so than this Bacharach love letter.
