Listener comments!

Avatar 5:17pm dale:

i like your banter. you're like the john pizzareli / jessica molaskey of jersey city
  5:19pm Mark:

I'll take that as a compliment--I've got big shoes to fill here!
Avatar 5:22pm glenn:

jessica does have large feet.
Avatar 5:22pm dale:

is a compliment - it's a rock and roll 'radio deluxe' (which i like).
  5:22pm Listener Robert:

For those of you who didn't get the reference, Viceroy carried on an ad campaign for several years as the thinking man's cigaret.
  5:24pm Listener Robert:

That was also parodied in a Walter Lantz cartoon about advertising, in which the voice-over says over a person's figure, "Let's hear what the thinking man says about cigarets." The thinking man replies, "I don't smoke."
Avatar 5:25pm dale:

saw dick gregory doing some comedy and then talking about the watts riots on the merv griffin show today (might have been ME-tv). this old stuff needs to be heard and seen more.
  5:26pm Listener Robert:

It is amazing how much touchier people are today about certain subjects, such that comedians can't joke about them. OTOH, as shown by Lenny Bruce, they're much LESS touchy about certain OTHER subjects.
  5:27pm Miss Linda Lee:

fantastic thing about great social satire, it's never actually 'old stuff'. we all need more Lenny. good evening!
Avatar 5:30pm dale:

glenn- HAH! just noticed your comment.
  5:35pm Miss Linda Lee:

@Listener Robert, are you the gentleman who lives with Dusty & Izzy?
  5:35pm Mark:

Thanks for tuning in this afternoon. Not to worry, Gaylord will be back next week!
  5:36pm Miss Linda Lee:

love hearing you both. please don't be john & jessica. they're so clubby!
Avatar 5:37pm dale:

this is that modern prog all the kids talk about.
  5:40pm Miss Linda Lee:

really love the maki asakawa. bossa nova beautiful.
  5:40pm kevin:

on the politically effective satire front, y'all familiar with Barry Crimmins? the new bobcat goldthwait doc on him, Call Me Lucky, is on Netflix and all crazy kinds of good.
Avatar 5:41pm dale:

will look that up - thanks kevin
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Guten Abend~Tzag good persons.
  5:47pm False Dawn:

Maki Asakawa dated Yoko Ono in the early 60s
  5:48pm Miss Linda Lee:

@False Dawn, is that right? fascinating!

  5:52pm Listener Robert:

Ms. LL, you're asking how I fit w certain characters on the Dusty Show?
  5:54pm False Dawn:

  5:54pm Listener Robert:

Oh, you mean Dusty & Izzy he chinchillas. No, my entry was Wolfie.

I tried to register as Robert, but that was taken. However, I didn't realize there couldn't be redundant IDs on the mascot entries.
Avatar 5:54pm glenn:

i LOOOOOOOVVVVVVEEEEEE this dan penn / spooner oldham record.
  5:56pm Listener Robert:

Some day (yeah, right) I'd like to do some HTML-based mixed-media comic strips featuring Wolfie & me.
Avatar 5:56pm glenn:

except i've owned it since maybe 2000, so you should check your date.
Avatar 5:58pm Michael the Big Lanky Geordie:

Howdee people from over here in England where it's way past my bed time! Your brilliant show is stopping me getting my beauty sleep!!! ;-)
  5:59pm False Dawn:

Timberwolves fail to cover
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm common:

man, the old master painter was somethin! hello people
  6:01pm False Dawn:

Most Geordies are master painters
  6:04pm Mark:

I've heard that about you guys.
Avatar 6:05pm Michael the Big Lanky Geordie:

Most timber wolves are master falsifiers
  6:07pm False Dawn:

Michael Van Gerwin wrote this with Darryl Hall
  6:07pm False Dawn:

I'm going out on a limb here, but I'd say the original of this is better
  6:09pm False Dawn:

this is woeful
  6:10pm False Dawn:

i can just imagine what this crowd look like. A bunch of Guardian readers
Avatar 6:11pm glenn:

this, on the other hand, is a thing of beauty
  6:11pm Miss Linda Lee:

LOL!! wow that's white.
@Listener Robert, the chinches must live with the other Robert. what's Wolfie's species?
  6:12pm Stanley:

Hi Mark
What a great show you have got going. Also wanted to say my pal, Pete, plays in this outfit
Keep on.
Avatar 6:12pm dale:

i didn't mind that hall and oates cover - it needed a woman's touch.
  6:13pm Miss Linda Lee:

fantastic piece Stanley!
Avatar 6:13pm dale:

LOVE this version of 8 miles - heard it before, never knew who did it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Andrew Waterloo:

I can imagine that Ukulele thing happening at summer camping festival I've been going to
  6:14pm False Dawn:

not when the vocals sounded like they were telephoned-in
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm Andrew Waterloo:

There'd probably be a guest appearance from Fred Penner in the mix as well.
  6:15pm Miss Linda Lee:

@dale,i liked the bird & bee cover too. the blase' delivery made it. the original tries so hard.
Avatar 6:15pm glenn:

or sharon, lois and bram.
  6:17pm Miss Linda Lee:

kottke did amazing things with the 12 string guitar. really, these are great covers. love the heart of glass cover. it's such a goofy song to start with, the outre' arrangement works out!
Avatar 6:18pm dale:

i like the bad pluseseses version of 'comfortably numb'
  6:19pm Miss Linda Lee:

got to hear more of them. i love it.
  6:25pm False Dawn:

clear who wears the trousers in that household
  6:27pm Syd:

Hiya Mark! This has been a super show today. Loved the uke orchestra segue to Leo Kottke.
Avatar 6:31pm dale:

no mention of chuck eubanks in the credits? HE WAS RIPPED OFF.
Avatar 6:33pm dale:

i hope mr toussaint got checks from the dating game (merv griffin productions? full circle to my earlier comment?) on a regular basis.
Avatar 6:33pm dale:

shirley did the name game song, no?
Avatar 6:35pm dale:

i think that lady died last year.
  6:36pm Miss Linda Lee:

@dale, yes, she sang 'the name game'.
  6:36pm Listener Robert:

I have that album, "Whipped Cream and Other Delights". It was one of Mother's.
  6:39pm Miss Linda Lee:

@Llistener Robert. for some reason, through the years, i've collected at least 4 copies! & then i remember the comic Pat Cooper doing a spoof of the cover on one of his albums, 'Spaghetti Sauce & Other Delights' i think it was. ..
Avatar 6:44pm dale:

i thought dolores ericson model on whipped cream died, but she's still covered with cool whip out there. pat cooper however is no longer covered with spaghetti on this realm.
Avatar 6:47pm dale:

when i go through my albums i find 2 or 3 copies of 'the button down mind of bob newhart' and 'smothers bros live at the green onion' - guess you can't have too much of a good thing.
  6:48pm Miss Linda Lee:

@dale, i remember hearing about his passing. my Italian grandma loved his records!
the Whipped Cream cover's actually been spoofed * a lot*. Soul Asylum did one too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Kewl version Live Groovies !
  6:49pm Listener Robert:

Hard to believe this is that old.
  6:49pm Miss Linda Lee:

one of my favorite rock n roll tunes ever.
@dale, another one that keeps coming up for me is the Ultimate Spinach lp. strange.
Avatar 6:53pm dale:

never heard of ultimate spinach but after googling i wish i would find one. first couple of glen campbell albums always surface, and that 'sounds in space with ken nordine.
  6:55pm Listener Robert:

I'm trying to remember whether Herb Talbot & the Tijuana Tin got covered with something sloppy on "Get Smart". Seems like the kind of gag reference Leonard Stern, Mel Brooks, etc. would go for.
  6:55pm Miss Linda Lee:

my god i'd love one of those ken nordine records!
  6:56pm Miss Linda Lee:

@Listener Robert .. Tijuana Tin? that's a pretty knowing reference there ..
  6:58pm Listener Robert:

Yeah, but it would've been capped by Barbara Feldon's getting covered with something wet & messy if they were to take it all the way. I've learned late in life that TV is CHOCK FULL of stuff like that on what you might think are unsophisticated shows, even commercials.
  6:59pm Miss Linda Lee:

let alone cartoons!
  7:01pm Listener Robert:

In 1989 my friends' & my jaws dropped as we were watching a 1957 Looney Tune, "3 Little Bops" when they laid on an allusion to the Bavarian Illuminati.
  7:15pm these deals won't last:

Here's to Shirley Ellis! "Tucker, Tucker, Bo, Bucker, Banana, Mana, Mo, Mucker, Fee, Fi, Fo...
