Orson sounds a little bitter. :)

  12:08am Holly in NC:

Hello Therese & fellow listeners, looking forward to show (burrows even further into blankets, wine close to hand)
Avatar 12:09am Droll:

G, When you start at the top, the only direction you can go is... strong drink, which played no small role in the making of that recording.

@Droll: Plonk Power.

Presidents Day special, called it first 0:-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11am fleep:

Presidents Day. The day our founders set aside for mattress sales. Good evening, Therese.
Avatar 12:11am BadGuyZero:

I need to get this Marilyn Monroe recording. After all it IS essential.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:14am fleep:

To the young folk listening: we didn't actually talk like this back then, we looked and sounded a lot like you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16am G:

I never talked like Orson, and that's a fact.
Avatar 12:17am tomB:

I'm so old I remember when this was new. But I never heard it till now Therese. We tend to forget there was another Romney!
Hope you play some cuts from the 1st Family

"The Holy Spiro"... that was a groaner
  12:18am Destroit:

hello Therese and all the good ones. Looking forward to the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19am G:

He really needed the money, obviously. Dare I say of Orson; from hunger :)
Avatar 12:19am Droll:

fleep, Yeah, but you still rode dinosaurs and powered cars with your feet.

This Orson is truly shameless. This needs a 4-on-the-floor beat, a bass loop, and filter sweep.
Avatar 12:20am fred von helsing:

OTOH Orson also did "The Third Man". Been reading about postwar Vienna. What a cesspool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20am G:

Keep on Rockin' in the Dick World
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22am G:

Orson was great in the 40s. By 1970ish, well, judge for yourselves :)

  12:28am Skirkie:

I have an LP of Reagan reading bible stories I'd've lent you.
Avatar 12:28am BadGuyZero:

@fred: I own a print of "The Third Man" on 16mm!
Avatar 12:29am Droll:

Skirkie, I'll make an offer on that!
Avatar 12:29am BadGuyZero:

It was re-released in 1973. Originally came out in 1969.
Avatar 12:30am fred von helsing:

@bgz color me impressed !
Avatar 12:32am fred von helsing:

The Begatting falls on the Orson Is Cool side. He lent his gravitas to solidify Tricky Dick's rep as an absurd abherration.
Avatar 12:32am amEdeo:

Avatar 12:32am BadGuyZero:

I was looking to see if copies of that Orson Welles record were for sale. I didn't know that record info off the top of my head.
Avatar 12:34am BadGuyZero:

So they're imposters is what you're getting at?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34am Ken From Hyde Park:

The kids & I were collecting presidential dollar coins, but they're only available to collectors now. You can't just go to the bank and pick them up anymore.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36am fleep:

Must stop thinking of Spinal Tap

Hmmmm...note to Kenzo. URLs with dollar signs do funny things in the comments.

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by.

Gosh, news reports saying Mindy McCready is dead at age 37. From a self-inflicted gunshot wound. RIP
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43am G:

"On February 17, 2013, neighbors called the Sheriff's Office of Cleburne County, Arkansas, reporting gunshots. McCready was found dead on her front porch as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot."
Avatar 12:44am BadGuyZero:

@Ken: Yeah...saw that earlier. The father of her kids committed suicide a few weeks ago. A sad, sad situation.
  12:46am Holly in NC:

@BGZ - not that there's anything wrong w that, right? ;-)
@Droll, double amen
Hi KP!
  12:48am Holly in NC:

@BGZ re Rush!!!!

Great. Now I've got Busta Rhymes' "Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See" stuck in my head.

@Holly: I was hoping that's what you meant.

Therese, just bought Hull today because I enjoyed it so much last time you played it.
Avatar 12:53am KP:

By the way, Mrs. KingPenguinRock was a Girl Guide in England. And approves of this message.
  12:56am Holly in NC:

Thetese, might have to follow KP's lead (Leed?) - this is great.
  1:02am Marmalade Kitty:

I've heard The Who Live at Leeds but not Hull Hmm one to check! Is it good, kP?
  1:03am Marmalade Kitty:

That was hull, Hmm......? :)
  1:11am Marmalade Kitty:

Who would wanna go to Hull? Hmm..
Avatar 1:12am BadGuyZero:

Bobby Hull?
Avatar 1:13am KP:

Wow. Sweetheart. and a Mcguinn track. Thrilled.
Avatar 1:21am tomB:

Jansch, Haden, & Thompson--all the hits from the new bin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30am Therese:

The new bin is like candy.
Avatar 1:37am KP:

Heaven & Hull. Actually had Hull show as bonus in Leeds box but when I saw it today, on a Sunday, could not resist.

Nice! That will be fun. Do they still wear the surgical masks?

I believe so.

Avatar 1:54am BadGuyZero:

I wonder what Vance thinks of this Medusa record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57am Therese:

I wonder what Vance thinks about just about everything. He is an enigma...
Avatar 1:57am KP:

Isnt this a little heavy for Vance?
Avatar 1:58am amEdeo:

Tic Tacs? I'm not some Johnny Come-RiteAid.
Avatar 2:02am BadGuyZero:

@amEdeo: I was thinking of the episode of "Seinfeld" in which Elaine has a co-worker that's a sidler.
Avatar 2:03am BadGuyZero:

I wonder if cinnamon toothpicks are still a valued commodity on elementary school playgrounds.
  2:07am Holly in NC:

Teatree toothpicks the happening thing around here.
Avatar 2:08am amEdeo:

Why stop when you can combine 'em? Cinnamon and Teatree toothpicks.

BGZ, one of my co-workers is from Moscow. She will back you up on your dashcam assertion.
Avatar 2:36am BadGuyZero:

Every piece of video footage of that meteor I saw looked like it was from a dashcam. I guess all the cars from "Bullitt" and "The French Connection" must be in Russia now.
