Avatar 7:04pm spacebrother:

Me too!
Avatar 7:05pm Mr Fab:

Not that I don't mind bad Elvira records. But still..
Avatar 7:07pm Mr Fab:

If anything could get me to like "If I Had A Hammer," this supreme grooviness is it
Avatar 7:08pm spacebrother:

I would have been ALMOST as happy to listen to the bad Elvira
Avatar 7:09pm spacebrother:

Amazing old video goes with the song.
Avatar 7:11pm Mr Fab:

Not familiar with Ms Pavone, so will check out videos 'n' whatnot. Fun songs, and she certainly has a pet of pipes on her.
  7:12pm chillroom:

Checking in.
Avatar 7:12pm spacebrother:

Check out "Little Rtia of the West" for amazeballs dance numbers.
Avatar 7:13pm Mr Fab:

Hi chiliroom! Oh man, this is great. Does Devo know about this song?
  7:14pm chillroom:

What a potato.
Avatar 7:14pm spacebrother:

Hey Chillroom sir. Thanks for listening!
  7:15pm chillroom:

Hey Mr Fab. Loving this, Greg.
  7:16pm chillroom:

You did get that Fat Mattress track I sent you?
Avatar 7:18pm Mr Fab:

Did you send it to me or Greg?
  7:18pm chillroom:

To Greg.
  7:18pm chillroom:

Petrol Pump Assistant.
Avatar 7:19pm spacebrother:

I don't know if I got it.
  7:19pm chillroom:

No worries. It was attached to an email.
Avatar 7:21pm spacebrother:

I'll call you later to straighten it out.
Avatar 7:22pm Mr Fab:

You gotta post that video on the Sheena's Facebook page.
Avatar 7:24pm spacebrother:

Which, the "Little Rita" dance scene?
  7:24pm chillroom:

Happiness is a funny Beatle cover.
Avatar 7:24pm spacebrother:

youtu.be...
Avatar 7:28pm Mr Fab:

Cool, will check that out, but was thinking of My Name is Potato. i mean, an animated spud? It's what the world needs now.
Avatar 7:29pm spacebrother:

Oh - youtu.be...
Avatar 7:32pm Mr Fab:

"making all his nowhere planes"? Like, they don't fly anywhere?

Exhuma! He was Caribbean, did some cool stuff.
Avatar 7:33pm spacebrother:

Didn't know who he was.
Thanks as always to the brain trust!
Avatar 7:33pm CC:

I just love them Beatles songs!!!...:)O(:
Avatar 7:34pm spacebrother:

Welcome, CC!
Avatar 7:35pm Mr Fab:

Hi CC! Yeah, Exhuma was like mystical/occult-ish Afro-Carib-psych-funky soul. If that makes any sense...
Avatar 7:36pm Mr Fab:

no way, Sceamin jay covered McCartney!? had no idea, and I've got no shortage of Screamin jay records.
Avatar 7:36pm spacebrother:

More stuff to check out.
Avatar 7:36pm spacebrother:

This is by FAR one of my favorite covers.
Avatar 7:37pm CC:

I I know I didn't either this is really great space brother..!..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Rich in Washington:

Hiya spacebrother!
Avatar 7:38pm spacebrother:

So glad when people enjoy/ haven't heard things.
Avatar 7:39pm spacebrother:

Hey Rich! Nicetaseeya!
Avatar 7:41pm Mr Fab:

Yo Rich! Funny, i just re-watched "Reefer Madness" yesterday, to grab some good dialogue samples
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Rich in Washington:

Hi Mr. Fab!
Hi CC!
Hi Chillroom!
Howz everybody today?
Avatar 7:52pm CC:

I bet they lock all the cockpits to these airplanes these days???
Avatar 7:53pm spacebrother:

To keep Red "Suitcase" Simpson out?
Avatar 7:54pm CC:

High...y'all..!..:)O(:
Avatar 7:54pm Mr Fab:

A friend of mine is a pilot, and he says it makes no sense., e.g. they have to hand over their pocket knives, but there's a fire ax in the cockpit. Stuff like that.
Avatar 7:54pm spacebrother:

Rich giving the list some CPR!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Rich in Washington:

Oh man! I haven't taken much of a survey of modern patriotic music since GW's second term. I can't even imagine what some pro-trump songs are like now.
Avatar 7:55pm spacebrother:

Gotta do a show of those! Rich?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Rich in Washington:

I figure that music like that are like cheese - they have to have aged sufficiently before they're ironically funny. Weird thought that I'd somewhat yearn for the more innocent days of the simple tea party.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Rich in Washington:

If I ever have shows that coincide with the 4th, I usually do my huge patriotic music blowout. I think the last one I did was as a guest of Martinibomb on his KFFP show last year.
Avatar 7:57pm Mr Fab:

Well, Moe Tucker was a Tea Party supporter...
Avatar 7:57pm spacebrother:

Depending on the lyrics, I think hey shouldn't need much aging at all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm Rich in Washington:

That's true! Wonder if she's currently a trump supporter? Seemed like her arguments then weren't as nutty as people had her down for. I think her political compass was sort of broke to the point where it went all over the place.
Sorta like Exene of X.
Avatar 7:59pm spacebrother:

So true about Exene.
Avatar 8:00pm CC:

I was kind of Blown Away when Jackson browne's album lives in the balance got bad reviews what's up with that?!?
Avatar 8:02pm spacebrother:

Did not hear that album. What didn't they like?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Rich in Washington:

That Lloyd Marcus album looks like fun.
Avatar 8:03pm spacebrother:

Thanks all for listening!!!
Avatar 8:03pm Mr Fab:

Total fun-ness once again, thanks Spacebrother!The live shows return Wednesday with The World's Worst Records. Til then, surf the stream of 24/7 audio oddities
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Rich in Washington:

See ya, Spacebrother! Thanks for the great show!
Avatar 8:04pm spacebrother:

Thanks Rich!
Avatar 8:04pm CC:

Yep!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05am Jan Turkenburg:

Good show, Greg!
Avatar 11:18am spacebrother:
