I should be right back!

You can set a clock to him.
Avatar 7:04pm Mr Fab:

I'd love to know whats the deal with "He's Just A Scientist." Was it from a show or sumthin?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Rich in Washington:

Avatar 7:06pm spacebrother:

Sounds like it. Originally unreleased until it was on a comp in 1987.
Avatar 7:07pm spacebrother:

Good. Enjoy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Rich in Washington:

We're all passing the Chiyoko Kobayashi exercise, I see.
Avatar 7:07pm recordrouletteclub:

I only knew the John D. Loudermilk version of that Scientist song before..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Rich in Washington:

Hi spacebrother! Hi Mr. Fab! Hi recordroulletteclub! Swell show today!
Avatar 7:09pm spacebrother:

I guess Loudermilk was the composer.
Avatar 7:11pm recordrouletteclub:

Thanks Rich!! And Hello
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Rich in Washington:

That was amazing, spacebrother!
Avatar 7:13pm Mr Fab:

Would love to know how they translated the phrase "jive talkin'" into a Chinese language..
Avatar 7:14pm spacebrother:

Hello Dan. Thanks for listening in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Otis Fodder:

15 minutes late and I see Connie Francis was here, was hoping to catch her and tell her I'm not a scientist.
Avatar 7:15pm spacebrother:

Thanks Rich!
Avatar 7:15pm spacebrother:

I sometimes wonder with these translations if there is any relationship to the original. I hear Spanish and French covers that wander pretty far afield.
Avatar 7:17pm Mr Fab:

True. "Ce Plane Pour Moi" and "Jet Boy Jet Girl" are completely different lyrics. (Same band on both, I recently learned)
Avatar 7:17pm spacebrother:

Hey Otis!
Avatar 7:17pm spacebrother:

I have about 5 versions of Jet boy/ Ca plane. Will play on a show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Rich in Washington:

Avatar 7:18pm Mr Fab:

Is this Charlie Linville on your wind-up gramophone
Avatar 7:18pm spacebrother:

apparently the producer in the studio just decided to make 2 records with the same band and music and different lyrics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Otis Fodder:

Hey Hey. By the way, love that Connie Francis song, will back-listen to hear you first dj break and the starting songs. Just got back from the grocery. I'm going to make cookies later tonight from scratch. I would share, if shoving cookies in usb ports was a thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Rich in Washington:

Sonic Youth covered that tune! and Thee Headcoatees.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Otis Fodder:

I love this song, every version. I aspire to be the 1432 Hero!!
Avatar 7:20pm Mr Fab:

I have a German schlager version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Otis Fodder:

Oooh, love to hear that. Save it for when YOU have YOUR show FAB.
Avatar 7:20pm spacebrother:

Me too. I better get busy throwing my arm away.
Avatar 7:21pm recordrouletteclub:

This Bobby Russel song is GREAT!! New one to me. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Otis Fodder:

I really just need like 100 songs just like this. 1432 fan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Rich in Washington:

I been meaning to ask that... Are YOU going to do a show, Mr. F?
Avatar 7:22pm Mr Fab:

the STREAM is my show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Rich in Washington:

And quite a show it IS!
Avatar 7:23pm spacebrother:

There should be like 500 people singing at the end. Like "Basketball Jones"
  7:24pm captain mike in port Whitby:

Was Roy the one who was picking or grinning on Hee Haw?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Otis Fodder:

Yes! The stream is BOSS!
Avatar 7:25pm spacebrother:

Yes, that Roy!
Avatar 7:25pm spacebrother:

He was a great musician and entertainer. In his blood. Roy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Rich in Washington:

aw. Roy Clark!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Otis Fodder:

Nice set... this one. I like the story song numbers, with a dash o' pretty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Rich in Washington:

I sure have gotten to appreciate 60s/early 70s country in my advanced age.
Avatar 7:27pm Mr Fab:

We just lost Roy recently. One of those guys who i was surprised was still alive in the first place
Avatar 7:27pm spacebrother:

Abe Vigoda syndrome.
Avatar 7:28pm spacebrother:

Thanks, Otis. i have a soft spot for this crap.
Avatar 7:29pm spacebrother:

Irony and sentimentality in the same breath.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm Rich in Washington:

Oh, man! I'm experiencing AV syndrome all over the place! I thought the same thing about Roy but then, I think that about a lot of people. 'cept Pete Shelley. That one came out of the blue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm Otis Fodder:

Me too. Love sneaking in the sentimental songs on shows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Otis Fodder:

Ah, I see the connection with the 5-spot bill! Watch out Abe, your EYES!!
Avatar 7:30pm Mr Fab:

I was raised with classic country. My folks had lots of Johnny Cash, old cowboy songs, Marty Robbins, etc. So I always kinda liked this stuff. I was probly the only one of my punker friends who recognized Wall of Voodoo's "Ring of Fire" as a JC cover.
Avatar 7:30pm recordrouletteclub:

Hey! I get it!! Lincoln.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Rich in Washington:

WHat the hell! This is fantastic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Otis Fodder:

Raised on classic country (the real stuff) is a badge of honor.
Avatar 7:31pm Mr Fab:

"Sittin here drinking with Abraham Lincoln" - ha!
Avatar 7:31pm spacebrother:

I sing it to myself all the time.
Avatar 7:32pm spacebrother:

The vibrato is painful. Almost.
Avatar 7:32pm spacebrother:

On Dolly, that is.
Avatar 7:33pm Mr Fab:

Porter Wagoner AGAIN! Third show here in the Room that's played Porter in recent days.
Avatar 7:33pm spacebrother:

I was inspired by Otis. I love "Rubber Room."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm Rich in Washington:

Rubber Room is indeed great. Wow! That's almost Hank Snow level morbid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm Otis Fodder:

Great set and also love that Dolly/Porter cut.
  7:38pm captain mike in port Whitby:

Gonna turn you lost soul mafaws on to Canada’s answer to Johnny Cash if you dig late 60’s early ‘70’s country- check out absolutely anything by Stompin’ Tom Connors- Trust me you will not be disappointed. Also check out the film “Across this Land with Stompin’Tom Connors” Live at the Horseshi..Horeshoe Tavern in Toronto with David Cronenberg in an early production credit. Popeye meets Hasil Adkins!
Avatar 7:38pm spacebrother:

I created the image for the show, actually. Pretty crude, but gets the job done.
Avatar 7:38pm spacebrother:

Thank you Mike. Excellent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Otis Fodder:

Yes, Captain Mike. Love Stompin' Tom! Discovered him when I moved to Canada a decade back. For sure, no disappointment!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Rich in Washington:

Didn't Stompin' Tom do the Hockey Song?
Avatar 7:41pm Mr Fab:

Will check him out cap'n - anyone who's first name is "Stompin" has got to be good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Otis Fodder:

Rich, yes! www.youtube.com...
Avatar 7:42pm spacebrother:

  7:42pm captain mike in port Whitby:

Stomping Tom definitely informed the MacKenzie Bros. on SCTV and Trailer Park Boys mentality for sure! Been digging this stream all day!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Rich in Washington:

Ah. I think I heard about him when Doug N' Bob McKenzie did this fake radio appearance, promo thing, like a packaged fake appearance at 'your' radio station and they played records. When D&B were huge, had that LP.
Avatar 7:43pm Mr Fab:

Wow, years ahead of Belafonte's fake calypso. (not judging, I love fake calypso). A

Avatar 7:44pm Mr Fab:

Who don't love Pal Jonathan?! Saw him at the sadly departed Palomino Club ages ago.
Avatar 7:45pm spacebrother:

Saw him at McCabes' or something years ago too.
Avatar 7:46pm spacebrother:

I suspect that this is one of those "Do the Screw" producer wants to sing things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Rich in Washington:

or the Wilco Records janitor fills in at the last minute...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Rich in Washington:

Although Discogs sez Chuck Daniels did a space novelty record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Rich in Washington:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Rich in Washington:

Whoa! This is a wild Wild Thing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Rich in Washington:

Oh. Castration Squad! I've never heard this before!
Avatar 7:49pm Mr Fab:

I have a Castration Squad taped-off-the-radio show. Is that where this is from? Didn't think they made any actual records
Avatar 7:50pm spacebrother:

I didn't leave myself enough time to do a full back announce on Castration Squad.
Avatar 7:50pm spacebrother:

I think that recording is the only record of their existence.
Avatar 7:51pm spacebrother:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Rich in Washington:

It's surprisingly hard to do an hour show when you're used to 2-3 hours. It's like landing on a short runway with a 747.
But I am slowly getting the pace of it.
Avatar 7:54pm spacebrother:

Perfect analogy. I am overcommitted to other stuff (Like my interview show/ podcast) and didn't want to be responsible for more than 1 hour.
Avatar 7:55pm spacebrother:

If anyone's interested: radiomisterioso.com
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Rich in Washington:

This is fantastic, spacebrother!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Rich in Washington:

No. An hour's good. It's actually relatively easy and fun. The pace is just different.
Avatar 7:57pm spacebrother:

Thanks Rich. Means a lot coming form a fellow DJ.
Avatar 7:59pm Mr Fab:

Awesomely fun show, Spacebrother!

The live shows continue Wednesday with a 3-show block, beginning with the "World's Worst Records Show." And of course the stream will be bringing you Bad Sounds For Bad People 24/7.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Rich in Washington:

Thanks for a great show, spacebrother! See you all on Wednesday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Otis Fodder:

1, 2, 3 hours are perfect for shows. Yep, pace is just different, totally.

Great show!!
Avatar 8:00pm spacebrother:

Thanks to all for being here and the convo!
Avatar 8:01pm spacebrother:

What is this beatnik song!? Wow!
Avatar 8:01pm Mr Fab:

from Spike Jones in Hi Fi
Avatar 8:03pm spacebrother:

Thanks! I was planing a beatnik show soon.
Avatar 8:05pm spacebrother:

Thank you Otis!
Avatar 8:06pm spacebrother:

Thank you, Rich!
