Hi Joe, hi Linda, Melinda, all!
Avatar 9:10am Joe McG:

Hi, everybody, I hope you're having a lovely morning! I'm here filling in for Roger and Amanda. I'm a little surprised I'm not guesting on their playlist today, but that's OK! Today will be a Double Dip style show -- well, my version anyway!

  9:13am Sarah:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14am queems:

i think stashu played this last night but a lady was singing it
  9:14am Last White Rhino:

If I had to choose who was more talented, either Joe or McGasko, I would have to go with McGasko.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15am Mark Hurst:

I think MST3K did a funny bit on this.
Avatar 9:16am Joe McG:

@LastWhite: Ha ha! I hope you're all doing these exercises at home.
  Swag For Life Member 9:17am tadpoles:

This brings back memories of Bonnie Prudden! Got me going!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18am melinda:

I'm not ready for this much exercise right now, I don't have Robert Preston-level energy.
  9:18am Mandy:

arm circles are evil
  9:20am Sarah:

Yay bananas
  9:20am Santos L Halper:

Whew! I'm bushed, but ready for the day. Morning Joe!
  9:21am GListener MW:

A friend of mine has a potassium allergy and doesn't/can't eat bananas. The "everyone" in this song is incorrect. This song is lies.
  9:21am Last White Rhino:

I like pajamas.
  9:23am prudy:

Oh Joe, you're taking me back to my childhood! Next it is HR Puffinstuff!
Avatar 9:23am Joe McG:

What about bananas in pajamas? www.youtube.com...
  9:23am Colleen:

Nice to hear you today Joe!... nearly slipped in the shower when the Brady kids came on ...turns out I remember the dance that went to that!.... always a fan!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24am G:

Tra La La -- haven't heard it since it was on tv when I was a kid
Avatar 9:26am Joe McG:

Hey, prudy, Colleen, G! Thanks for joining me today for Saturday morning fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27am Ken From Hyde Park:

When I am called upon to do karaoke, "Tra La La" will be my pick.
  9:31am prudy:

Whew, a jammin version of the Hokey Pokey! Now I don't hate this song!
  9:32am L W Rhino:

Just like Sugar Bear always said "I can't enuff of that Post Super Sugar Crisp".

I've had this GoGos LP in rotation all summer. Good morning, Joe!

Avatar 9:35am Joe McG:

Hey Mike! Sounds like you need a Vacation! :)
Avatar 9:36am Roberto:

The first time I heard the Go-Go's's version of Cool Jerk I thought they were singing "Khrushchev"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:38am Mike East:

I had actually pulled it out in the couple weeks leading up to our LBI vacation to get psyched up for it...it worked, we had a blast!
  9:38am L W Rhino:

I'm Koo Koo for Jo Jo Puffs !
  9:41am medson:

Good morning Joe.
  9:43am queems:

this was me learning flute in 5th grade
Avatar 9:43am Joe McG:

Hey medson! I hope you're practicing your times tables.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43am listener 126464:

i had math after lunch
  9:44am medson:

I am. It’s a great refresher since I’ve been out of school for a really long time : )
  9:46am Mandy:

I just realized that I'm pretty sure kids don't actually do rote memorization of times tables anymore.
Avatar 9:50am Joe McG:

@Mandy: How sad! Are there any kids listening that can verify this?
  9:53am Mandy:

honestly I think they are better at math now. it's all about projects so they use math rather than freeze up and just rattle through a times table song like I did lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56am listener 126464:

and beer
  9:57am Colleen:

Bobby Bear
  9:58am Greg from ZONE 5:

Avatar 10:08am Joe McG:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09am melinda:
