Whoop!

ON THE AIR.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm Rich in Washington:

Time to start stopping hitting yourself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Going to get some sleep so I'll see you in the archives - have a fabulous show! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:01pm Rich in Washington:

Nighty night, GeorgyGirl!
Avatar 7:02pm spacebrother:

Night night!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm Linda Lee:

interesting seeing Kirk smack himself in time..
  7:03pm chillroom:

A vocal version of Take 5. Couldn't be any cooler.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Rich in Washington:

This song immediately makes me think of Chris Elliot's Marlon Brando bit on the old Letterman show. Bananas.
Avatar 7:07pm spacebrother:

Did he use this music?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Linda Lee:

they had us do a line dance to 'alley cat' in 3rd grade, of all things (1967).
Avatar 7:09pm spacebrother:

I think his stuff has been everywhere, and most people don't know it's him. He's still alive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Linda Lee:

brilliant.
Avatar 7:10pm Mr Fab:

Hey Greg! I happen to love Bent things. Any Bent bolt and his mechanical men?
Avatar 7:10pm spacebrother:

It's so goddamn mediocre and inventive at the same time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Rich in Washington:

@spacebrother: Yeah. He'd come on and insist on doing this silly dance to Alley Cat and for some reason say 'bananas', like that was the lyrics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Linda Lee:

yes! :-D
Avatar 7:11pm spacebrother:

I only have Mechanical Man, which I played on the Mechanical men show.
Avatar 7:12pm spacebrother:

I can play by request.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Rich in Washington:

The bent bolt thing. I can't help think that Manson heard that song and that Devo heard Manson's song. They're all really similar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Linda Lee:

i love this stuff. just great.
Avatar 7:13pm spacebrother:

@ Rich: Hilarious! I don't know why I don't remember it.
Avatar 7:14pm spacebrother:

@Rich: Yes I played three or four mechanical man songs. All those.
  7:17pm CC:

That song would have gone great on GGs show!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Linda Lee:

'get your whip & do your thing' ... hmm
Avatar 7:18pm spacebrother:

@CC - Yeah, I try to do themed links to GG's stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Linda Lee:

what's the opposite of 'gentle on my mind'?
Avatar 7:21pm spacebrother:

@Linda - Yeah, Billy Mize was it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Linda Lee:

wow.. :-D
  7:23pm CC:

best version of this song ever!!!
Avatar 7:24pm spacebrother:

@CC: I think it's my favorite.
  7:31pm CC:

It's a rough job but somebody's got to do it..!..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Linda Lee:

love this 'happy wanderer'. it's touching.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Rich in Washington:

It's all that frantic hitting yourself.
Avatar 7:33pm spacebrother:

The Shat is going right along with this one.
  7:34pm chillroom:

Mistakes and chills. Great show, Greg.
Avatar 7:36pm spacebrother:

Thanks Mr. Chillroom!
Avatar 7:37pm spacebrother:

Hey, lots of Nino Rota influence!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm Rich in Washington:

That was epic!
Avatar 7:40pm spacebrother:

Thank you Rich. Bernie was doing mashups in 1957!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Rich in Washington:

I've had one Peanuts albums on my discog list for eons, to no avail. It's the one where they do lots of cover songs, including a King Crimson cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Linda Lee:

The Peanuts were wonderful.
Avatar 7:43pm spacebrother:

I grew up with the Peanuts, so they are a favorite of mine.
Avatar 7:44pm spacebrother:

@ Rich: I didn't know about that KC cover. Which one?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Rich in Washington:

They do a version of Epitaph, from KC's debut album. It's on their album entitled On Stage, from '73. I've played it on my show. It's pretty epic.
Avatar 7:47pm spacebrother:

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

Ack ack! ACK!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Rich in Washington:

Brilliant!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Rich in Washington:

This is like Steve Reich producing Billy Joel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Linda Lee:

o thank goodness. i really hate this song. :-D
Avatar 7:50pm spacebrother:

I just hate Billy Joel in general.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Rich in Washington:

I've been sort of fixated on how Piano Man meshes with Kate Bush's Suspended In Gaffa.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Linda Lee:

hate to be rude, but i do too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Rich in Washington:

I should play some of my Billy Joel German covers for both of you.
Avatar 7:52pm spacebrother:

Rich - Play all that stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Rich in Washington:

I've had my Devotees album in my 'maybe play' bin for weeks but haven't gotten around to it yet. Something new keep coming up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Linda Lee:

is that germans doing billy joel or billy joel singing in german?
Avatar 7:53pm spacebrother:

That record is a must-have.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Rich in Washington:

I've got a record by a Czech singer - Helena Vondrikova - singing Billy Joel in German, yes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Linda Lee:

does Helena do all the acks?
Avatar 7:55pm spacebrother:

That sounds like a Holy Grail!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Rich in Washington:

Not as many acks as the Mark Evans remix, but yes, all the acks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Rich in Washington:

This is great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Linda Lee:

yes, this is lovely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm Linda Lee:

how do these amazing radio shows go by so fast?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Linda Lee:

but will you ever dance with another, Greg?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Rich in Washington:

Wonderful show tonight, spacebrother!
ACK ACK ACK!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Linda Lee:

delightful show! thanks Greg!
Avatar 8:01pm spacebrother:
