  1:17pm Listener Jumpy from Brooklyn:

Cindy just asked who Mike Mazurki was. I described him as best I could and she replied, "Oh, him."
  1:22pm Slop Mahoney:

I watched the great Maz in "Live Wires" yesterday...he gave Slip, his "pal" da woiks !...great stuff
  1:22pm Daddy-O:

Wasn't Mike Mazurki in a Bowery Boys flick, where he was playing airplane with Slip and Satch ?
  1:23pm Slop Mahoney:

Thats it !
  1:24pm Daddy-O:

He was also on an episode of Adam-12
  1:32pm ::JT::

I'd never heard the Moon records original, just the Tav Falco & LX Chilton renditions... wonderful! Besides Cordell Jackson, anything else interesting in Moon vaults?
  1:39pm tony in durham nc:

The Saturday Afternoon Tradition promo is poifect! TV worth watching. More slop, please!

  2:02pm ::JT::

Ben Sandmel: http://www.erniek-doebook.com/
  2:06pm mustafa bin loaded:

Almost looks like that cigar is a photoshop on Mike Mazurki.
  2:10pm Daddy-O:

Thank You Mr. Ballard, Indeed !!!
  2:18pm Daddy-O:

I actually went to the address in Bricktown, but alas, no surf records were to be found !!!
  2:19pm Daddy-O:

I once played this at a car show in Asbury Park, and I swear, this one geezer was pulling his hair out....SCREAM!!!!!!!!
  2:21pm Count reeshard:

Scream! AMAZING!! In one fell stroke, Ralph Nielsen effectively nullifies the entire recorded output of Peter Gabriel !!
  2:22pm RevPhil:

I got news for you Rex Hank Ballard did not create the Twist. Go to www.uncamarvy.com and go to the Spaniels article and get the real scoop on this.
  2:26pm Daddy-O:

Love This !!!!! Just bought it from G- Mark last night....Cool Cover !!!
  2:29pm G:

A lust-filled kick??? Holy crap, guys, we gotta go see that one!!!!!!
  2:32pm Marc Grobman:

Great to hear Ralph Nielsen's "Scream" again. Since I live within about 50 miles of where Nielson was playing, I've long hoped to sometime email you and Dick Blackburn with the news that I've popped 100 unplayed copies and to see what each or you would trade for a copy. The best record I've gotten so far from Dick BB is the great satire of all macho-boasting muscle car songs, Gene Savage's "Big Machine." Rex and Dick, if I fulfill my little dream of finding you a copy of "Scream," I want even better in trade. You're warned.
Marc Grobman
  2:35pm Count Reeshard:

Just when I think I've got a comprehensive collection of Mad Daddy airchecks, you surprise me with another unheard (by me) one. Thanks, Rex.
  2:41pm ::JT::

*shiver* *shudder*
  2:41pm G:

Let me see, am I getting this? His program frightens you, you don't like it? Is that it?
  2:43pm kat330:

"I think you're fweaky, and I like you a lot."
  2:45pm ::JT::

"Heeeeeereeee kitty kitty kitt.....ty"
  2:48pm Nancy K:

In the hazy memories of my beloved transistor, I seem to recall that Mad Daddy came on after Murray the K on WINS.
It seemed like it was very late at night but I was very young.
  2:50pm RevPhil:

That Idols record remind me of "A Fool In Love" by The Ikettes.
  2:51pm rick:

Regarding Don Mincher, who also played for the A's and Angels, I believe, my first baseman's glove which I have had for the past 35 years or so is a Don Mincher autograph model. I'm not sure you can get very man autograph model baseball gloves nowadays which is puzzling.
  2:56pm Bill W:

RIP Don Mincher & vet ump Harry Wendelstedt, but to complete the circle of life, Orestes Cepedes makes his Cactus League debut for the A's in 10 minutes.
  2:59pm Daddy-O:

Vernon Green....Haunting record, one of his best !!!! Great Minds do think alike !!!
  2:59pm kat330:

Special thanks for Little Marie Allen with Chuck Booker's band's "Humdinger"!
  3:02pm ::JT::

Great show, thanks Rex!
  3:38pm G:

@Nancy K: wikipedia says: ""Mad Daddy" reached the peak of his popularity at WHK [Cleveland], hosting record hops and live after-midnight shows dressed in a Dracula costume. In July 1959 he moved to WHK's sister station in New York, WNEW 1130 AM, where "Mad Daddy" was not well received. He played it straight as Pete Myers there until 1963, when he moved to WINS and resumed the "Mad Daddy Show." This show was syndicated to other stations until WINS changed format to all-news in 1965. As again just Pete Myers, he returned to WNEW once more. Myers lived until November 4, 1968, when he took his own life in New York City, shortly after he had been informed that his show was to be moved from afternoons to evenings at WNEW."
