Avatar 7:07pm geezerette:

...Spacebrother! Are you suh-wingin' onna star?
Avatar 7:09pm spacebrother:

Avatar 7:13pm Mr Fab:

I have a coffee-table book called "Beatsville" thats got all kinds of Beat-era pics, cartoons, magazine articles, ads, album covers, even greeting cards. Cools-ville!
Avatar 7:13pm spacebrother:

Damn, I'm trying to keep up with the show and the track list, and talk to you guys.
Avatar 7:15pm spacebrother:

I want that book!
Avatar 7:16pm geezerette:

'([:co ...chill, daddio...it's cooool...like Kenneth...
Avatar 7:17pm Mr Fab:

I have an actual copy of Edd "Kookie" Burns' book "Way Out Kookie." A pretty slim volume, but comes with a valuable glossary of Kookie-talk. He was the ginchy-est!
Avatar 7:20pm spacebrother:

He really worked that character.
Avatar 7:21pm geezerette:

Made pads are trad, dad...
Avatar 7:27pm geezerette:

Annie the great!
Avatar 7:27pm spacebrother:

had to include this classic.
Avatar 7:28pm spacebrother:

Avatar 7:28pm Mr Fab:

Edd Kookie Burns developed that character on a shows called "77 Sunset Strip" which I'd never seen til a station showed a marathon of it a year or so ago. I was so excited, heh heh.
Avatar 7:29pm geezerette:

:D !!
Avatar 7:29pm spacebrother:

I made a mistake in the back announce and said it was Dobie Gillis. Dammit.
Avatar 7:30pm Mr Fab:

I bought a Lambert, Hendricks & Ross album years ago for the sole purpose of getting "Twisted." (as opposed to "getting twisted!"
Avatar 7:30pm geezerette:

ha! Noir as a lifestyle.
Avatar 7:32pm geezerette:

( this fun! )
Avatar 7:33pm spacebrother:

Glad you are enjoying it. Its a departure from my usual shows...
Avatar 7:37pm geezerette:

spacebro, Stan Feberg & Tom Leher are two of my favorite beats, and Alan Arkin.
Avatar 7:41pm spacebrother:

Nice! I should expand my definitions.
There's another show coming at another date. Maybe a faster one. Shorter tracks.
Avatar 7:47pm spacebrother:

Lenny was the most jazz improvisational of comics.
Avatar 7:50pm geezerette:

Arkin was a Village folksinger early on, had a trio! But it's his sensibility, sense of absurdity that make him Beat. Mad Mag too, the old ones
Avatar 7:51pm geezerette:

agree about Lenny!
Avatar 7:51pm spacebrother:

Ken Nordine next time too.
Avatar 7:52pm geezerette:

Avatar 7:57pm spacebrother:

I ran 1 minute late, so my back announce may be cut off.
  7:57pm kismet:

is it possible to listen to these playlists again?
Avatar 7:57pm Mr Fab:

yeah, Lenny Bruce is usually remembered for his taboo-busting political stuff, but nowadays, I think his Beat hip speak is the most entertaining aspect of him.
Avatar 7:58pm Mr Fab:

Yes, kismet, wait a few hours after the shows end, and they are archived, to be listened to and cherished forever.
Avatar 7:59pm spacebrother:

Hey Kismet! Long time no see!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Otis Fodder:

Hip show to cook and eat by. It's a mad show pad!
Avatar 8:00pm spacebrother:

Thanks Otis!
  8:00pm kismet:

that's great news, Long time no see spacebrother! told you i'd make it!
Avatar 8:00pm geezerette:

Snapping my fingers in gratitude. :)
Avatar 8:01pm Mr Fab:

Dug this the most, Spacebrother. Like, thanks!
Avatar 8:01pm spacebrother:

Thanks all! had fun putting it together!
  8:01pm kismet:

hey, that's just like, your opinion man
Avatar 8:03pm spacebrother:

An opinion I dig!
