I will not plead the 5th.

Howdy doodies! On the air!

well,it's got a good beat, and you can dance to it.

Pass de hatchet on de left hand side.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:09pm Uncle Michael:

I need one of those Seven B t-shirts.
Avatar    Wed. 5/24/17 10:10pm geezerette:

ha ha.:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:10pm Funky16Corners:

I used to have homemade one. Gotta make a new one
Avatar    Wed. 5/24/17 10:10pm Doug Schulkind:

Nothing bad ever happens with a Seven B on a wheel of steel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:13pm Funky16Corners:

You speak the truth
Avatar    Wed. 5/24/17 10:27pm Doug Schulkind:

I included Anderson's "I Won't Cry (I'll Just Laugh Myself to Death)" on a past FMU marathon premium!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:29pm Funky16Corners:

Know anything about him?
Avatar    Wed. 5/24/17 10:33pm Doug Schulkind:

Nope.

Sir Shambling has a few nuggets: www.sirshambling.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:37pm Funky16Corners:

Always a great source of info
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:38pm Uncle Michael:

man, I haven't thought about that site in years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:39pm Funky16Corners:

I'm there at least once a week, mainly for info on funky/soul sides by deep soul artists
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:41pm Funky16Corners:

Freehold NJ's own Motifs, played with the proto-Boss back in the day
Avatar    Wed. 5/24/17 10:41pm Doug Schulkind:

I head over to Sir Shambling's place to verify recording dates. Then I stay and swoon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:45pm Uncle Michael:

This is my secretly favorite Kinks song. I may have played it on my first show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:46pm Funky16Corners:

Cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:47pm Uncle Michael:

Four times...but the first time was on my fourth show or so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:48pm Uncle Michael:

I mean, if I were to name my favorite, it would probably be something else...but I seem to be drawn back to this time and time again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:48pm Uncle Michael:

The funky shuffle slays me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:50pm Uncle Michael:

Blue Things from my neck of the woods, by the way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:52pm Uncle Michael:

Frank pronounced it RE-PREEZ, accenting both syllables.
Avatar Wed. 5/24/17 10:55pm Jeff Ash:

And I thank you, sir.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:55pm Uncle Michael:

Condolences, Jeff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:57pm Uncle Michael:

Don't forget Newbury's train songs.
  Wed. 5/24/17 10:57pm Dean:

I have precisely one Kinks album, not counting the complete series of digital files--which really aren't records by my lights--and it's not among their best. It's Sleepwalker, because I think "Life on the Road" is one of THE BEST pop tunes ever. But my avoidance of Kinks records is a function of intimidation. I grew up with their music. I can't imagine not having heard it. It's so solidly, brilliantly, sublimely (by no means ridiculously) executed that I can't even begin to approach it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:58pm Funky16Corners:

I came late to the Kinks myself. Well worth a deep exploration
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 10:58pm Uncle Michael:

Don't be no 'fraid.
Avatar    Wed. 5/24/17 11:03pm Doug Schulkind:

Sheila B of WFMU's Sophisticated Boom Boom just told a nice story about spinning that Maggie Thrett tune at a live DJ gig.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:03pm Funky16Corners:

I think she met up with one of the cats from De La Soul
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:04pm Uncle Michael:

She did, that was cool. Someone else told her who he was. Then she got a picture with him...Mase.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:12pm Cubs Win:

Yass...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:12pm Funky16Corners:

Sly and the Family Stone were so goddamned badass.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:14pm Uncle Michael:

Yes, but Michael Shrieve was still the coolest person at Woodstock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:15pm Funky16Corners:

No doubt. He popped up in the comments to an old Iron Leg post about a high school band he knew (wasn't in).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:16pm Funky16Corners:

I dunno, might have to revise that for Larry Graham
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:16pm Uncle Michael:

Shrieve posted? Coolness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:17pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah. I'll send you the link sometime. It has something north of 100 comments
  Wed. 5/24/17 11:17pm Anchovy Paste:

Such great sounds!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:17pm Uncle Michael:

Shrieve's work on Soul Sacrifice is the best thing from Woodstock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:18pm Funky16Corners:

That performance brings me to tears every single time
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:18pm Uncle Michael:

But Larry Graham is pretty badass.
  Wed. 5/24/17 11:23pm Dean:

Yeah, but Shrieve was in Journey, a huge demerit. Then again, Stomu Yamashta's Go was solid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:27pm Uncle Michael:

Ronald Isley is currently my all time favorite singer. That changes from time to time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:27pm Funky16Corners:

So much great Isley's stuff, all eras of their career.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:28pm Uncle Michael:

Yeah, after little Ernie grows up, he fucking kills me.
Avatar    Wed. 5/24/17 11:29pm Doug Schulkind:

If I may paraphrase Dizzy Dean here: This radio show has testificular fortitude.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:30pm Funky16Corners:

This 45 is brilliant, and thanks!
  Wed. 5/24/17 11:34pm Sandy Baby:

Larry is doing to radio what Montana Republicans do to journalists.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:35pm Funky16Corners:

I don't wanna hurt nobody...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:41pm Funky16Corners:

But I might go a tiny bit long tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:42pm Uncle Michael:

That would be great! I'm about to pack up my keyboard but not my speakers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:43pm Funky16Corners:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:43pm Uncle Michael:

I collect airchecks. Let me tell you soul airchecks are rare.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:44pm Funky16Corners:

This is one of the greatest
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:44pm Funky16Corners:

Soul Sound Sonny Make No Mistake-a Jake-a!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:47pm Funky16Corners:

The Geater with the Heater!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:48pm Uncle Michael:

Jerry Blavat as a DJ, wasn't he?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:49pm Uncle Michael:

I mean the Georgie Woods trck...he was a DJ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:49pm Funky16Corners:

He was indeed! One of the greatest in Philly in the 60s and 70s. Georgie was too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:51pm Uncle Michael:

We need Mr. C here to expound on Georgie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:51pm Uncle Michael:

Or jerry, rather...d'oh!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:52pm Uncle Michael:

Alrighty...g'night folks. Thanks, Larry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/24/17 11:52pm Funky16Corners:

My pleasure, as always!
Avatar    Thu. 5/25/17 12:07am Doug Schulkind:

Sizzzling show. With an extra z for extra zizzle!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/25/17 12:07am Funky16Corners:

That, as they say, is all, folks. See you all next week, same Bat time, same Bat channel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/25/17 12:07am Funky16Corners:

Thanks Doug!
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:08am still b/p:

Really enjoyed, thanks!
