Hey Rex! We met at the marathon. I was answering phones when you were co-hosting - I sat right next to you. Welcome back to the airwaves.
Your wife listens to this show?? Kidding. I never miss it and often replay it during the work week. Thanks for the years of that crazzzzzy music.
You don't have to be a "fool" to listen to "Fools Paradise" but it helps. Love the show!
What was your favorite act at Ponderosa Stomp? Mine was definitely Cyril and Ron from Flamin' Groovies. WFMU should have hosted an event down there.
P Stomp was great. Does anyone have contact info for Josh Styles? (I don't do Myspace)
Pair a Dice songs ?
Frlamin' Groovies! The only reason I went.
can anyone tell me what the fools paradise theme song is called?
Funnel of Love - Twice! Wanda was in much better voice than I expected.
Now a bonafide Mug-N-Bun, Lockhart, and Ponderosa Stomp alumni.
Wanda was very good. I had no idea ? was such a ?

Sage advice from Babs.
The SNACK..and how to get it
I'm glad Wanda was great the Ponderosa Stomp. She is the Queen!
As someone said from the stage, The nice (or was it sweet?) lady with the nasty voice.
To Lando- One of Rex's themes is "Shawnee" by the Premiers. I have it on the Desperate Rock n Roll V 3 comp. I'm sure Mr D has it on a 45, probably also autographed by all the band members.
Wow! This Chicken Pot Pie track is way fantastic. Thanks.
ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma
chicken pot pie!
can't wait to see who the artist is
(and I do mean ARTIST)
I never knew she was so tiny. They literally had to put a footstool down so she could get into the van when she left. It's crazy hearing that voice whooping, yodeling,etc. so strongly from such a small, frail lady. It's great she is getting the accolades she deserves. Surreal moment - on the balcony listening to Roy Loney describing what a great, friendly guy James Burton is backstage while turning into Bonnie Raitt entering as I head to the bar.
Careful which melons you be thumpin
did everyone feel the room tension rise when Wanda gave her testimony? I thought the crowd handled it wall though.
I just substitute cheeses for jesus whenever that happens
I toasted her faith with a shot
Satin loves you!
and you can substitute melon thumpin' for Bible thumpin'
And maybe Humpin or sumpin
Then you might as well use fuck instead of luck
Did anyone else hit the record show? I arrived with 20 minutes left and really didn't get to look much. I did score a mint copy of The Addicts Sing though.
Oh, BTW, we are performing naked tonight http://www.sonicuke.com/index1.php
Nice drop in, Rex!
What a SET !
Who, me? We are opening and closing the hour. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApHJbhM-JQE
awesome stuff. thanks.
Lord Fauntleroy and Lord Buckly should have had a throw down..show these young upstarts whats what !
I am about half way through John Broven's wonderful book. I just finished his interview with Gene Goodman. PLEASE read this book! See if your library can get a copy on the shelf!
Is Broven's book kind of like Charlie Gillette's "Sound of the City"? That book opened my eyes to the influence the independent record companies had on the growth and spread of rock'n'roll.
Joe: You're right on target, brother!

Listening to your show while reading the hardcover re-issue of Humbug magazine. A perfect combination!
