Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Oh man, I love Scotch and Soda. I think the original version by the Kingston Trio is one of my favorite. My advice to all you folks who are shy about singing, is get the music - it's an EASY song to master.

Avatar 12:42pm Franco Twinkie:

WR, I made a cartoon of Fat Man In The Bathtub. I gave it to one of the Little Feat roadies and told him to give it to Lowell. He studied it with a serious look on his face then told me "You wait here..."

  2:23pm Listener Robert:

I just got back, but an hour plus ago you put on a version of Caravan that I couldn't tear myself away from the headphones for. There are some tunes that are good but commonplace, and then someone does a version that's riveting. Thanks for playing that one.

Speaking of H&M, does anybody here remember a time when the March marathon just ended with the last regular DJ shift?
Avatar 2:31pm WR:

Paragons Abba tune new to me. Nice that they have very complete wiki page, interesting story.

So what's the excuse for their Abba? It didn't scan like ABBA the way Abacab scans like ABACAB.
