Listener comments!

  1:23pm mustafa bin loaded:

great stuff. looked up Una Merkel on the web. Quite a lady.
  1:28pm Greg G.:

Always great to hear the hillbilly hijinx, Rex. but I'll be grateful if you never again bring that Buddy Starcher record with you to the station!!
  1:29pm mustafa bin loaded:

does anyone know any place on the web to see old episodes of Jerry Springer. Like 10 years ago. I encountered a guy who says he was on an episode with his ex girl friends on an episode about hillbilly love or something.
  1:35pm mustafa bin loaded:

I thought Rex lives miles below the earth's surface. or is that just where he broadcasts from.
  1:40pm G:

@mustafa -- that show has been on for over twenty years, and i just checked and there are over 3600 episodes now. for most popular shows, there are fan sites with episode lsitings and episode summaries. find one of those, and search "hillbilly love" or whatever exact wording he gave you for the show topic. the year would have to be early 00s or 90s, given when he told you this.
  1:43pm mustafa bin loaded:

he gave me the episode number but no avail during my search. season 13 episode 600.
  1:43pm Tom:

Do you mean Ugly Stickers issued by Topps back in '65? That was the only time Wolverton, Wood, and Saunders worked together on a series.
  1:44pm berlinwolf:

great otis blackwell with let the daddy hold you
on jay-dee 808. wild & great sax.

  1:46pm Myself:

Long Gone John, Una Merkel and Myself are ALL from Kentucky !

Seek Hillbilly love and ye shall find Hillbilly love
  1:55pm john:

  2:08pm Parq:

That's it -- I'm changing the name of my autobiography to "Tatters of Jive".
  2:11pm Listener Jumpy from Brooklyn:

I love derivative!
  2:25pm Tom:

I'm sending you six dupes from my collection of Ugly Stickers. # 6, 27, 29, 30, 43, and 44. Look for them in your station mailbox later this week.
  2:28pm mustafa bin loaded:

the local market must have mislabeled the price for the pork rib roast I got. It was only six dollars. Didn't realize it till I got home. Going to roast it and wife make mash potatoes.
  2:42pm Don (trip dub):

Said Tarzan to Cheetah.
  2:43pm Tommy Atomic:

I would like to nominate 'Ungawa' as the greatest word in any language.
  2:46pm mustafa bin loaded:

anyone see the James Brown videos on youtube of him doing Japanese noodle commercials. Miso noodles. twenty years ago. He sings in Japanese.
  2:50pm AJ:

  2:56pm Tommy Atomic:

  3:53pm Atomic ache:

I would like to second the nomination of 'ungawa' and all versions and variations thereof as the greatest word(s) in any language and i hope i never find out what it means.
  11:30am Richard D:
