Afternoon, Rex + Fools!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Greg and fellow fools!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm ChrisB.:

Jimmy (on phone): "What number is this?" Spanky: "How many guesses?" Jimmy: "Squint Eye." From "Mush and Milk," Our Gang, 1933, Hal Roach.

Hi Greg, Ken, and fellow fools !

Finlayson must have been all over the Hal Roach films. I remember him most from Laurel and Hardy.
  1:17pm pacific standard simon:

There's a cute little Laurel and Hardy home movie on youtube that shows Finlayson without all the mugging -- don't even recall that he has the mustache.
  1:21pm rw:

Rex: My daughter loves your show. Especially the "Mamma" echo.
Me too.
  1:23pm pacific standard simon:

Hey, chatting on Rex's playlist is way better with the WFMU android app -- no squinting at the awful blue and black color scheme!
  1:27pm pacific standard simon:

No auto-refresh or login either, though. :(
  1:28pm Brez:

Rex, funnin' up another Saturday - thank you, sir!
  1:29pm rw:

Huh... is there an ap for iPhone too? Not that I should be spending time chatting. So much to do!!!
  1:32pm pacific standard simon:

@rw - sure is!
  1:33pm rw:

Oh found it. I already had it installed. Just never clicked on chat.
  1:35pm rw:

PSS: thanks. You're right. No math either.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Gaylord Fields:

@pacific standard simon: Dohhhhhhhhh!!! Finlayson wore a prop mustache onscreen.
Avatar 1:37pm Mailman Tom:

What's James Finlayson doing in an open casket?
  1:39pm pacific standard simon:

Say Rex -- has there ever been a John Zaremba Memorial Playlist? I've been watching a lot of Alfred Hitchcock Presents episodes lately, and it seems like he's in every other one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39pm Gaylord Fields:

@rw: Fun fact — WFMU is the first radio station to develop an iPhone app.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm fleep:

Cutting edge technology to listen to scratchy old records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43pm coelacanth:

-I want to hear each & every scratch.

Hi Rex, everybody.
  1:44pm rw:

fleep: man, I was just about to say the same thing, only your comment is much funnier than mine was gonna be.
  1:46pm pacific standard simon:

Some dope reviewed the app in the Amazon app store and his big complaint was that he couldn't figure out how to get other stations on it. Talk about d'oh moments!
  1:50pm rw:

I bought an old cracked iTouch off a kid in my neighborhood for $50 specifically to run the FMU ap through my stereo. No other radio stations are necessary.
  1:50pm pacific standard simon:

That King Charles track had the BEST guitar-- wow.
  1:54pm pacific standard simon:

It's funny that Jimmy didn't wear a toupee on the top of his head for his movie roles, but did wear one on his upper lip!
  2:00pm pacific standard simon:

I gotta get up and out of bed so I can see this casket picture. Besides, my Kindle battery is getting low.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Gaylord Fields:

@pacific standard simon: Also, in real life he did all his squinting with his left eye.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm pacific standard simon:

HA! There we go. Back to squinting again.

Good to "know", Gaylord!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm pacific standard simon:

Damn, the starting bid for a VG+ copy of that King Charles 45 was $30. Holy cow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Guido from Cologne:

Wasn't this "Divorce" an André Williams production?

The Black Pope couldn't foresee a certain Rex on the horizon

Dumps- Surely true ...But some of these more obscure artist were Counting on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Guido from Cologne:

This was a real nice time again in paradise!
Loved it (as I always do)!
But Dumps said it better!
