Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm karlward:

I also really enjoyed seeing Scott Williams do sound for Thompson, which was perfect by the way. Scott would be obviously rapt and then every 30 seconds or so look down at the board, maybe make a tweak, and then right back to rapt attention.

Hi Sheila and All,
Grier, Deacon Jones, Lamar Lundy, and Merlin Olsen's fearsome foursome--great nickname--were one of the top five defensive lines in history. Indicatively, Grier, Jones, and Lundy were big supporters of Robert Kennedy's presidential run in '68. They rode with him to campaign events.

I'm glad you already played Morton George, Sheila. Now I can watch the last episode of Chansons! after all. Will listen to the other boys tomorrow, but I prefer your regular shows above this one. With those you're quite unique in radioland, with this I'm afraid you aren't. But enjoy the rest of the show, everybody. Until next week.

Tiny Tim does an excellent version of Stairway to Heaven.

Agreed! Those ACE collections are true love and worth every cent. My expanding shelves disagree. I need to purchase more shelving

I think there is a correlation between falsetto and chest hair.

I had a signed Ian Hunter poster but it didn't survive all the moving.
  5:37pm ShelbyG:

Ok. rx has a point
  5:37pm Rick G:

Haha! Such a guilty pleasure cover. The video that went along with this song was so gratuitous and silly, too. Well played Sheila!

They did it on record in English, and did it in Korean-English for live stages.

My favourite was the Vanilla Fudge version but this comes very close. Not willing to cede VF's supremacy yet but I am open to it... Thiusis fabulous.

Rick A: yes

Avatar 5:53pm litmus0001:

Afghan Whigs! I was in college playing in a band in CIncinnati in the early 90s, when we were all riding on the wave the Whigs made. Infamous stories about Dulli tossing beer bottles in a washing machine at bar/laundry Sudsy Malones and puting $0.50 in and hitting "spin cycle".
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Handy Haversack:

Thanks, Sheila! Men. Who knew?

Be well, everyone!

Speaking of minor chords. Don't tell anyone, but if you play any early Beatles song in "drop D" tuning you have a Nirvana song.
