Hey Rex! Is that the Japanese submarine pilot from Gilligan's Island?
Avatar 1:12pm Juke Joint Jonny:

I dig Vito Scotti! Man, he was in everything. Wonderful how Hollywood could never decide if he was their default Italian or Mexican, so ended up doing both. Also, notably he played a lot of high-energy crazy artist types. What's that still from?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm Mike East:

Lunchtime! I can smell that garlic naan. Hey Rex!

Avatar 2:23pm Mailman Tom:

Vito Scotti had a dual role on Andy's Gang, he played Rama on the Gunga the East Indian Boy segment of the show and also Mr. Pasta Fazool.
Avatar 2:28pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

actually it is too late to make menudo today. I will start it tomorrow morning.

A little "Dirt" left over from Jim Boss and the Sundowners got caught on the needle?
Avatar 2:39pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

I thought about shipping some food down or some delicious Vermont beer for the DJs and volunteers. I will be bringing some local brew for the Hoof since I have had a few requests for some. Even though it looks like there won't be much room for the public this year as it is not at Maxwell's but at the station on the new ground floor. I think some listeners are planning a meet up elsewhere. Don't think it is organized yet.
Avatar 2:40pm RetroArtBlog.com:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm fred:

@GMMM: Ken said the H'n'F wouldn't be open to the public because the station doesn't have the required license. I haven't heard much about that meet up, then again I'm an ocean away
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46pm fred:

@GMMM: BTW, if I ever get time and money at the same time -- don't hold your breath -- I'm definitely going to spend some time in Vermont, this looks like my kind of place
Avatar 2:48pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

The Hoof is planned to be streamed again probably through Ustream. Wife and I have already made plans to be in the area over the weekend for the Hoof and other things going on that weekend. We made the plans before we knew the Hoof isn't at Maxwell's. But so many listeners might want to have a meet up like at the Barcade or some place. Or even at Maxwell's.
Avatar 2:53pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

I think I will be bringing down some growlers of the now famed Hill Farmstead beers. They cleaned house recently at a rewards thing for beer. Won like 8 out of the 10 prizes. You can only get the beer at restaurants and pubs that have it or right at the brewery in VT where I get it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm fred:

What kind of beer is that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Super bummed it's not at Maxwell's—that's usually one of my favorite nights of the year.
Avatar 3:00pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

hillfarmstead.com the guys are master brewers from another planet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm fred:

@greg: Something memorable might still happen at Maxwell's. There are enough people feeling the same way to make it happen. Maybe not at Maxwell's, but I'm sure something will happen
Avatar 3:02pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

yes fred, that is what I'm talking about. I live away but still could help organize.
Avatar 3:03pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

maybe I could also finally do the sneeze box thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:04pm fred:

@GMMM: you should get in touch with Dave B, he's likely to have something in mind
Avatar 3:05pm Green Mountain Man Mark:
