Happy New Year Amanda and folks.
That is the cameraman's geetar. Where is he?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14pm Jeff Golick:

I've never seen his show, so I'm just gonna assume this is Bear Grylls?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16pm Amanda:

Oh boy, when you see his show you're going to be very disappointed.
Avatar 12:16pm Okasa:

Happy New Year. This reminds me that one time I saw the Country Bear Jamboree at Tokyo Disneyland. The bears sang in English but spoke in Japanese.

BG is head of the Boy Scouts over here. Dib dib.
Avatar 12:18pm Brian in UK:

Are there super packaged reissues of the Chipmunks in Japan?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Aw, gee. I just saw that Robert Stigwood has passed away. He worked with the Bee Gees back in the 70s.
  12:19pm Dean:

He was the RS in RSO Records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm Uncle Michael:

Very few people know that the "O" was Ozzy.
Avatar 12:22pm Brian in UK:

Thought it was Overcharges.
  12:22pm Dean:

Which explains why Black Sabbath almost reunited as the Bee Esses.

Shit, 2016 is just laying folks down like ripe wheat.

Barry Gibb wrote Crazy Train
Avatar 12:23pm Brian in UK:

Amanda's front page reminds me that Stigwood was reponsible for that wonderful Sgt Pepper film.

I won't speak ill of the dead, but...you can if you want.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm Gaylord Fields:

RIP also Paul Bley & Pierre Boulez
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm Jeff Golick:

I'm going to imagine quotation marks around that "wonderful," Brian in UK.
  12:25pm MONEYBAG$:

Just watched Magical Mystery Tour the other day...to be fair, Sgt. Pepper was easier to follow
Avatar 12:27pm ndbob:

afternoon Amanda and everyone!
Avatar 12:27pm Okasa:

Pierre Boulez?! Sad news…
  12:28pm Mark R.:

My stream is sounding a little crappy--kind of fuzzy and stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm Amanda:

It's just the records!
  12:29pm Mark R.:

I'm pretty sure it's not my computer--music from other sources sounds fine--just thought I'd mention it.
  12:30pm Dean:

Is Pierce Brosnan next?

Spoonful channeling their inner CannedHeat...
I'm sure that like any of Rawk's Great Biznessmen - you could pile up the pros & cons of R.Stigwood's dealings - but Rawk needs those guys. Who else is gonna Manage things - a buncha Musicians ??...

Was it only last year since Mr Nesmith.

Can I direct you to this tome. So difficult to write a history of pop since the begining but it is a valiant attempt. Recommended.
  12:33pm Dean:

The Cars punk? Now I've heard everything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm fred:

@Dean: Pat Byrne, Paul Bruno and Pseu Braun should be extra careful this week
  12:36pm Dean:

Oh, shit. Peter Brotzmann.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm Gaylord Fields:

@Dean: Yes, there"s no actual punk on Chipmunk Punk, but I think the title is a reference to how Theodore survived his time in the joint.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:37pm Uncle Michael:

I think Jandek took a solo at the beginning of this song
Avatar 12:37pm Okasa:

via Tommy Johnson's wiki page: "In 1928, he made his first recordings for Victor Records. The recordings included 'Canned Heat Blues', in which he sang of drinking methanol from Sterno."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:38pm fred:

re: Boulez, the boss has been giving interviews just in front of my office for part of the afternoon. Of course, I'm wearing a very appropriate IBJ clown T-shirt
Avatar 12:39pm Okasa:

Also from Tommy Johnson's wiki page: "after 1929, he did not record again, mistakenly believing that he had signed away his right to record."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm Gaylord Fields:

@Okasa: Also, it was Tommy Johnson who legendarily made the deal with the devil at the crossroads, and that bit of lore somehow later got transferred to Robert Johnson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm Ken From Hyde Park:

In other, unrelated, news, the shower head at the gym here has half the nozzle holes plugged. It's like showering under a fire hose. I need to avoid stall #3!
  12:41pm Dean:

I remember thinking a year or so ago that Boulez was running out of time. Still, it's hard to take.
Avatar 12:41pm Brian in UK:

@Okasa might be similar to some distant tribes that believe if your take their photograph a part of their soul is taken away.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm Gaylord Fields:

Similarly, "There's a sucker born every minute" was said ABOUT P.T. Barnum, and not BY him, w/r/t the Cardiff Giant hoax.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Amanda:

Jealous of your fire hose experience, @Ken. I am very anti the ecological lo-flow toilets and shower heads that are everywhere now. You end up using MORE water. There was a whole King of the Hill episode dedicated to this so I know I'm right.
Avatar 12:44pm Okasa:

I am not a blues expert, so all I can do it past snippets from wikipedia. But re him not recording after 1929: "Some suggest he had been intentionally given this misimpression by some people at Paramount Records."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm Uncle Michael:

Have you seen the video for the Jack Wilde version of the Pushbike Song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50pm Uncle Michael:

I can't find it anymore.
Avatar 12:52pm KP:

Wow. The Byrds' live! THis is a Happy New Year already.
Avatar 12:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...yeah Volume up...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Amanda:

@Uncle Michael, no I haven't! That is intriguing. I love the Pushbike Song so much. Related: What is a Pushbike

Avatar 12:53pm Brian in UK:

I was never a big fan of Bob Johnson's production work on Dr Byrds. You can really appreciate Clarence here.
Avatar 12:56pm Brian in UK:

Chip Taylor rules.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm Gaylord Fields:

@Brian in UK: Perhaps you wish that Bob Johnson would have sold his soul to Satan for some Talent Helper.
  12:57pm P-90:

Ouch, now Pierre Boulez. These guys are all checking out too soon. Kurt Masur just left us on December 19th. I got my fingers crossed that Betty White and Abe Vigoda will both see us through 2016 and beyond.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Gaylord Fields:

Chip Taylor basically rewrites one song over and over again (Wild Thing/Anyway That You Want Me/Angel of the Morning) — but it's such a gooood song, it can stand the variations.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00pm Uncle Michael:

Amanda, I found this one but not the video I remember:

  1:07pm P-90:

"Pushbike" is just an old-fashioned British word for bicycle, btw
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm Uncle Michael:

It's just an old Brit term for what we call a bicycle.
Avatar 1:07pm KP:

Push bike is a no pedals one for little kids. they are pushed along by adult, presumably
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm Jeff Golick:

The Exploding Hearts sound just like this Fast Cars tune. It's uncanny.
Avatar 1:08pm Brian in UK:

Pushbike is a redundant term overhere now. A bicycle.
  1:09pm P-90:

Actually, I believe the "push" part just refers to being operated by "pushing" pedals, rather than by a motor. I believe.
Avatar 1:11pm Brian in UK:

@Gaylord know what you mean about Chip. Saw him last year with his old pal John Platania. Lovely fella, writing some sad ones these days. He got together for one gig with the remaining Troggs.
Avatar 1:12pm northguineahills:

Original bicycles had no pedals, and you used your feet to push yourselves around. This would have been in the early-mid 19th century.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12pm Jeff Golick:

This Dorothy is fantastic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14pm Amanda:

This song wins the contest of which song looks best when you imagine the bear is playing it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17pm Gaylord Fields:

The vocals on the Mohawks 45 are so obviously saying "Tramp!" It's a wonder that this naming subterfuge worked. But if Lowell Fulsom/Fulson didn't complain, why should I?
  1:18pm cable cord cutter:

I saw one with "Steam Engine" -- Has Antenna TV been airing many episodes of The Monkees where CBS swapped newer tracks in during their Saturday afternoon reruns, 1969-70, such as "Looking for the Good Times" and "Midnight Train"?

BTW: love a low flow setting on my Peerless handheld showerhead
Avatar 1:21pm northguineahills:

The last season isn't actually that bad for the last 10+ seasons.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm Jeff Golick:

I'm glad you are discussing this ep, Amanda.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29pm steve:

holey moley i LOVED that Garfield book as a kid!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm steve:

whoa i wanna find a copy of it now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm steve:

you just blew my mind
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I remember this episode, but I must've been distracted that evening. Some of this info feels new to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks for taking a peek into the recent seasons! I don't have digital TV or cable, so I can only see these more recent (after say 2005ish or so) when I see them at my dad's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm Amanda:

Ah, much obliged you guys. I'm relieved that you liked today's Simpsons Time!. @steve -- I know, I had forgotten that Garfield book entirely until seeing this episode!
Avatar 1:34pm northguineahills:

I had that Garfield book as a kid too. My parents probably still have it as my father liked Garfield.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm Ike:

Wait, just Simpsons and Project Runway? For comedies, you should also consider checking out Catastrophe, Master of None, and perhaps (despite the horrendous title) Scrotal Recall, plus others. And watch Terriers if you've never seen it.

...she's only three & taking LSD la la la...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm Ike:

Oh, and Bojack Horseman is amazing though it takes a few episodes for the jokes to really spin up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm steve:

hmm ive been meaning to watch Bojack Horseman for a while now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Jeff Golick:

Greatest day ever.
  1:41pm Mark R.:

Back when Tull was a quasi-blues band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Jeff Golick:

Cosign on Bojack Horseman. Love it. Now giving Rick and Morty a spin, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm Jeff Golick:

My favorite show on TV right now is probably Bob's Burgers. (Not that you asked.)
Avatar 1:43pm Roberto:

  1:46pm MONEYBAG$:

As a youngster I randomly heard Meredith Monk on the radio and it was the weirdest thing ever. 25 years later it's still up there.
  1:47pm P-90:

Also didn't know that Wayne Rogers from M*A*S*H passed away. Loving this performance though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47pm Amanda:

You can imagine the bear singing this one too, and it works out pretty well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Gaylord Fields:

Hey, Amanda — let's start a group called The Meredith Monkees!
  1:48pm Mark R.:

I could picture the bear singing pretty much anything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Ike:

Oops I forgot Bob's Burgers! That's excellent too. First 4 seasons are on Netflix (USA). It gets really good around ep. 5 or 6 of season 1.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Amanda:

Gaylord -- that is going to be the best band!!!!!
  1:49pm MONEYBAG$:

This got me thinking: there isn't a big jump between Yoko Ono and the Chipmunks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm Gaylord Fields:

Right, Amanda? I can just hear it now!
  1:50pm Mark R.:

The Chipmunks are a little more melodic, I think.

Big thumbs up for "The Meredith Monkees"!

excellent show Amanda!

@cable cord cutter -- I have been so excited to see the Monkees on Antenna, but sadly I am never home at the hour when they show 'em! Still, "That Girl" on Decades is a boon...

  1:56pm Mark R.:

Does anyone remember the "Family Guy" spoof of the "That Girl" opening that ran a few years back?
  1:56pm Hackensack Slim:

Canned Heat, Sister.
  1:57pm P-90:

Thanks, Amanda! Have a great week. Can't wait for your review/commentary on the Dolenz/Noone summit...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Bye, Amanda. Have a great new year!
  8:36am to your 1st song Wikipedia says::

Record collectors regard most Cricket Records as "junk."
  8:49am 6-time Micky Dolenz free concert-goer:

"J.U.N.K. Washburn" was likely devised as easy for non-musicians to play. I roll my eyes and shake my fist at Micky's persistence to push this un-Monkees dud every show. (Your 1st song was fun, however.)
