Yikes! Moose dodging is fortunately an unknown sport in New Jersey. But the deer are picking up the slack.

Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you saying I should be driving a Dodge, Listener James?

Gaaaaaaaaary!!!!!

A Møøse once bit my sister...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 5:49pm Doug Schulkind:

A moose once bit my sister Nell—say it with me, everybody—with Whitey on the Moon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 5:51pm listener james from westwood:

Think I'll send Rocky the Flying Squirrel, air mail, to Whitey on the Moon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 5:51pm listener james from westwood:

@Park, Mind you, moose bites can be pretti nasti ....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 5:52pm Doug Schulkind:

Bullwinkle shall be jealous, Listener James.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 5:54pm Jeff Golick:

I'm reminded of Woody's stand-up routine featuring a moose. And a couple dressed as a moose. All-time classic.

Glad you survived, Doug, and hello all assembled.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 5:55pm Jeff Golick:

"The moose was furious."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 5:55pm Doug Schulkind:

@Jeff "the Magick Tilapia" Golick
That Woody bit is hysterical.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 5:57pm Jeff Golick:

Here's the Woody moose story: www.youtube.com... (though not the one I know from the Stand Up album).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 5:58pm davex:

Hey, that's one lucky moose!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 5:59pm Doug Schulkind:

Greetings davex! How's the rain in Leipzig holding up?
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 5:59pm ndbob:

evening Doug and everyone!

Welcome aboard, ndbob!

Bridgekeeper: Get on with it.

Tim: Yes! Get on with it!

Army: Yeah! Get on with it!

Dingo: Oh, I am enjoying this scene!

God: Get on with it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:00pm davex:

Looks like our first snow tonight, Doug. Could get icy, too...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:01pm listener james from westwood:

@Jeff G: Yes! Was lucky enough to get his albums as a middle schooler after my mom offered me his humor collections, which I devoured. "The moose—mingled. Did very well. Scored."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:03pm listener james from westwood:

The way Woody says "scored" in that bit, and the particular New York accent Steinski has, makes me wonder whether they were from similar neighborhoods of NYC. I love both accents.
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 6:03pm ndbob:

rain and a little sleet yesterday - just cloudy and cold today
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:03pm Jeff Golick:

@ljfw: The youtube version (from a TV gig in the UK) leaves out one of my fave bits: "Tuesdays...Thursdays...and ESPECIALLY Saturdays."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:05pm Jeff Golick:

My son now goes to the same high school that Woody attended. He is not a favored alumni, and has done nothing with/for the school since graduating. My fave alum: Roz Chast.
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 6:05pm Parq:

Yes, but the New York Athletic Club is no longer restricted. At least not on paper.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:05pm davex:

Great first choice for road music. We've had this album on in the car ourselves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:05pm Jeff Golick:

* alumnus?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:05pm Doug Schulkind:

@Parq
Bridgekeeper: Vat is your favorite color?!

Me: Yellow....no, blue! Aaaaaargghh!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:08pm Doug Schulkind:

All listeners and lurkers are welcome and encouraged to join the conversation! The more the moosier!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:12pm listener james from westwood:

Lurve lurve lurve Laura Viers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:14pm Doug Schulkind:

When the first strains of the opening track on this disc crackled out the car stereo, my daughter said, "This record is my childhood." I had a little cry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:17pm Doug Schulkind:

Maybe I shoulda just taken a bus to Vermont.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:19pm Gary:

Awww.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:20pm listener james from westwood:

Aw, man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:21pm Doug Schulkind:

Awesome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:23pm Doug Schulkind:

Next up is a special treat. Music from one of the wonderful musicians who joins the Vermont Thanksgiving gathering every year and serenade us so magnificently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:28pm listener james from westwood:

That sounds like an amazing way to celebrate, no matter the holiday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:28pm Carmichael:

Hi Doug, drummers and moose enthusiasts. And enthusiastic mooses.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:29pm Doug Schulkind:

Yowza, Carmichael!
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 6:31pm ndbob:

evening Carmichael!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:36pm Carmichael:

Heya Bob, James, Gary, Davex, Jeff G, et al. 2 days straight of rain here in NorCal. That means an upgrade from arid post-apocalyptic wasteland to mirage-inducing heatwave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:38pm listener james from westwood:

I can see why she makes this disc a must-bring.
Carmichael, hope the rain is enough to relieve the drought but not so much that it causes mudslides, floods, et al. What a nightmare for CA this has been.
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 6:38pm ndbob:

great song here - haven't heard this in a long time
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:39pm Doug Schulkind:

This show will end with the two greatest driving songs in human history. Make that the two greatest songs in human history.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:40pm Carmichael:

They are actually dropping straw via helicopters to help stabilize the hillsides, lest even more of Malibu falls into the Pacific.

@Doug: Hot Rod Lincoln?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:40pm davex:

Hey Carmichael!

Doug, that's quite a build-up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:41pm listener james from westwood:

Good gods in heaven, I'd never heard this Green cover. Wow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:41pm Doug Schulkind:

You won't be disappointed, davex.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:42pm davex:

Doubling down!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:43pm Doug Schulkind:

Stick with me, Listener James. I've got a backhoe full of this stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:43pm Gary:

So great, the Al Green. Got up from dinner table to type that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:44pm Carmichael:

Aahh, great song. Dan Penn penned this, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:44pm listener james from westwood:

I'm backing up the truck!
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 6:44pm Parq:

Man, I'm hearing this Purify number on FMU a lot lately. Not that I'm complaining.
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 6:45pm northguineahills:

Enjoying the tunes, off to the store. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:45pm Doug Schulkind:

Dan Penn penned it indeed. My dear wife saw him and Spooner Oldham do this live. I hear it was amazing.

Head for the northguineahills!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:47pm Jeff Golick:

I would like to see him do the James Brown.
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 6:48pm ndbob:

I saw James and Bobby in 1967
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:48pm Carmichael:

I think I may have heard those concert outtakes somewhere on the radio, Doug. They also did Dark End of the Street.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:48pm Doug Schulkind:

Sweet, ndbob!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:50pm Jeff Golick:

That moose is doing a mean boogaloo.

Moose-aloo?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:51pm Doug Schulkind:

Let's just say this number and the previous had me sailing along at a higher rate of speed than the authorities recommend.
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 6:51pm Parq:

Kid in back seat: Dad, could you turn that down a little, please?

Me: No. Sorry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:51pm listener james from westwood:

Shoulda known Curtis would have a spot in the mix.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:53pm davex:

Yeah, why do they always want us to turn it down? We're old enough to know the right volume level!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:53pm Doug Schulkind:

@Parq
Happy to report...

Kid in back seat: This is fucking fantastic! (paraphrasing)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:54pm Doug Schulkind:

I'm mean, it's no Taylor Swift, but it's pretty OK.
Avatar Tue. 12/2/14 6:55pm Parq:

Don't worry, champ. She'll find other ways to make you nuts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:55pm Jeff Golick:

I once made Jeff J a mix CD that was designed to make him drive faster.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/2/14 6:56pm Doug Schulkind:

Aw, mama, can this really be the end?
Sensational ride, Doug!
