Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:06pm Gary:

What are you going to do on your birthday, Doug?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:06pm Doug Schulkind:

Speaking of horrtriguing, the flip side of this Nelstone's Hawaiians disc features a tune called "Fatal Flower Garden."
Avatar Tue. 5/27/14 6:07pm ndbob:

@Doug yep - which appears on the harry smith anthology
Avatar Tue. 5/27/14 6:09pm hyde:

Hidee hidee hoo, hyde!

Don't tempt me, Dean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:12pm Carmichael:

That reminds me, Doug. Over the weekend, I showed my dance-aspiring daughters a clip of Cab Calloway and band, with the Nicholas Brothers tapping all over the nightclub. It was a thing of beauty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:13pm Doug Schulkind:

Frank Isaac "Sugar Chile" Robinson is 10 years old here. The great Zutty Singleton is on drums!!
Avatar Tue. 5/27/14 6:13pm earrie:

Learning how to learn is a valuable thing to learn in school. It's the wish for more wishes come true.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:16pm Doug Schulkind:

Sweet, Carmichael! You gots to indoctrinates them early!

@earrie
That is the entire point of this broadcast. GOLD STAR!
Avatar Tue. 5/27/14 6:20pm ndbob:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:23pm listener james from westwood:

As good as hearing kids and birds in the background of field recordings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:24pm Doug Schulkind:

I'll send it to you, ndbob.

Luna says "Hey" everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:25pm Luna:

"Hi back, GF!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:26pm Doug Schulkind:

Can I teach an old davex new tricks?!?
Avatar Tue. 5/27/14 6:27pm earrie:

From the comic reading at the podium: "Knowing how it could change the lives of canines everywhere, the dog scientists struggled diligently to understand the Doorknob Principle." (Gary Larson)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:28pm Doug Schulkind:

Don't even NEED the art with that one, earrie.
Avatar Tue. 5/27/14 6:28pm ndbob:

@Doug Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:29pm davex:

Hey, I learn new things (if not tricks) all the time here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:32pm Doug Schulkind:

Rollover, davex. Good! Have a num-num!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:33pm davex:

Hope those are veggie num-nums...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:34pm listener james from westwood:

Broccoli num num!

"Octopus" off of School Days' In Our Times? Doesnt' quite fit your template so far, but makes a nod to the image...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:37pm Doug Schulkind:

The final set on this evening's program is about school buses. It will scare the shit out of you. Please tighten your safety belts.

@LJFW
Actually, they are broccoli rabe num-nums. This is a high-class jernt.

Click on the Stay In School poster to go to Liar Town USA. The creator of the poster and 1001 other glorious madnesses.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:38pm Carmichael:

Look both ways when you cross the street, or you may get a hood ornament up your butt? I love that song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:39pm listener james from westwood:

re: Liar Town: Dammit! We threw out all my grandparents' cussin' bears! We could've been rich!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:41pm davex:

See, I just learned what broccoli rabe is. Case in point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:44pm Gary:

Congratulations, Lincoln!
Avatar Tue. 5/27/14 6:46pm ndbob:

Congrats!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:47pm Doug Schulkind:

This song would seem to be directly contradicting the previous one!

The Stanley Brothers are singing of this event: www.oocities.org...

Good job, davex! Next week we will teach you about fennel!

T. Tommy Cutrer was a state senator from Tennessee. Try not to throw up in your mouths...

Hi NGH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:52pm Carmichael:

I thought this was Lorne Greene at first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:53pm listener james from westwood:

Instead of a straw man, this song has a straw bus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:53pm listener james from westwood:

@Carmichael: It does have a Golden Throats vibe to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:53pm Gary:

Bussing = death?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:54pm listener james from westwood:

Get the hell out of here, Tommy, you had a fuckin' Wallace sticker on that bus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:54pm Carmichael:

Can you play the clip from Dirty Harry where the bad guy makes all the kids on the bus sing?
Avatar Tue. 5/27/14 6:54pm northguineahills:

I was in a school bus in the first grade. We got a substitute bus driver and she went the wrong way. So, she turned on a dirt road, and unsuccessfully tried a three-point turn and we flipped over in a ditch. I got a bloody nose and most of the kids were not much worse off. Exciting for me, but my parents freaked out as it took another hour plus for another bus to pick us up, and drive us home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:56pm listener james from westwood:

Jesus, NGH! And I thought it was bad when one of the NJ Transit bus drivers just wandered the side streets near the Lincoln Tunnel for 45 min trying to get back on the highway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:56pm Doug Schulkind:

Is Ed Pinkett African American? I can't tell, but think so. Makes this cover version of T. Tommy Cutrer's School Bus even more creepy.
Avatar Tue. 5/27/14 6:57pm ndbob:

excellent show Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:57pm Gary:

Ed Pinkett also wrote Plantation Gold

Jesse Kaminsky here: wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:59pm Doug Schulkind:

I will investigate, Gary. Thanks for the 411!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 6:59pm Gary:

Wait, no, that's just a compilation title ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 7:01pm Gary:

It looks like he wrote the song that both he and T Tommy recorded, though
