Gee, I never noticed how much wombats resemble Ewoks from Star Wars. Wombat needs a little vest to complete the ensemble. Amazing animal fact: Wombat poop is cube-shaped.

you know how, through the power of suggestion, someone can create a false memory for you. (For example "Hey remember the time you were in the supermarket as a little kid and you got lost, couldn't find mom, and you cried and cried.." if repeated a few times, people will create that memory even though it never happened) Every time I hear that Heino song I start to create false memories of being a happy little boy dancing around to it in my parents living room.

I'm not sure if Happy Occasion Singers are German. Their song title and band name doesn't sounds very German to me, but if they are indeed then the score would be 6 to 1 (if my maths are correct).

Stretching your idea, wouldn't be great if all this suggestions coming from Pandora, Spotify et all while you are listening to music would be more honest? I.e. "That song you just played sucks. I cannot even think what I can suggest you". Or "Bro, stop listening to that crap. Why don't you listen to real music instead?". Or "Sorry, I wasn't paying attention to the last boring song you were playing. I have nothing to suggest you. Sorry", etc.

@Marcel: reason #429: another (Italian) coworker was named Carmine. Some asshole in social security "corrected" his gender to female (despite a photo where he was sporting a beard), but here SS numbers start with 1 for males, 2 for females, so it got him into lots of trouble. 2 years later it still wasn't fixed, despite a letter from a woman in HR attesting he was indeed male (boy did he get an earful about that one)

One of my favorite 7SD shows is "Please Don't Put Me On Hold". That episode had you recording Andy's voice with certain phrases and then you called book stores using the pre-recorded phrases. Can you find it?
  Wed. 7/9/14 11:10am Robert:

How about the one where you injected into the oral tradition instructions to time travelers to come back to WFMU at some previous time?

Or the one where Andy finally got to do Bigot Ambush & immediately found the fatal flaw because the guy you phoned was black? I don't remember anything else abut that show.

Undoubtedly the best way to make 70ies hairy rock fans wanna lynch the DeeJay!

Notorious version by Die toten Hosen on this here:

... and indeed noone had a clue, what that "yabbee-dabbee-doo" meant!

In fact the song is a complete ripp-off from traditional Tahitian song "Nau Haka Taranga", polpularised at the time by an orchestral version by Arthur Iriti from 1968:
(on LP "Ioara Tahiti" - Barclay MB 28.046 - pulished in France)

Tony Marshall (aka Herbert Anton Bloeth) is a full trained opera singer actually. He had a pretty unsuccessfull start with some more "serious" Schlager untill he met Cologne based Producer Jack White (not of White Stripes, this guy's real name is Horst Nußbaum ) in a Sauna!

... the best place to figure up with some Tahiti inspiered Stimmungs-Schlager.
