Ah, the age old problem: lack of a suitable container for fruit. Been there, man.
  1:37pm ScottC:

This a dirty song!
  1:40pm Marc Grobman:

Hi Rex, As always, I'm flippin' o'er yer show's grooves. Did you know that Candy Johnson also did a version of "Hound Dog"? (Great gargey version on Canjo 102, 1964.) And that there's an 'FMU connection? Doug Shulkin (of "Give the Drummer Some") once told me he played drums with the Candy Johnson Show band. (Although I doubt he was on her 1964 recordings.)

Best wishes,
Marc Grobman

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm Greg from ZONE 5:

@Rex: You should do "The Square" at Hoof & Mouth!

@Marcel: Yup. Probably going to do more standing still and drinking than dancing though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Marcel M:

@Greg: I hear ya! Not much of a dancer and more of a stand around awkwardly drinker myself.
