  1:10pm Brez:

Who could forget Charles Napier's performance in one of the WORST original Star Trek episodes, "The Way to Eden" (the space hippie episode)? Sorry, Chuck, but I wish I could forget that episode entirely!
  1:12pm Poptveye:

...and the fun scum cop on Rockford !
Avatar 1:14pm Marc Francis:

It has begun.
Avatar 1:20pm Tony in Durham NC:

I see curvy, buxomy Vixens...beating the stuffing out of Charles Napier! It's a good thing.
Avatar 1:25pm Debbie D.:

I'll be in Coward's Corner if you need me.
Avatar 1:36pm Tony in Durham NC:

  2:35pm Geetar graft:

Billy Butler played guitar on the Lester Lanin tune.
  2:39pm Bob O'Booey:

Long John Hunter...great guy & bluesman.
Told me how he used to swing from the rafters while playing bars in El Paso & Juarez.
They don't make bluesmen like that any more.
May he show 'em how to swing in heaven.
Love & peace to his wife Gayle.

Rochester NY, Rex? Nick Tahou's Hots, home of the Garbage Plate for starters!
  3:02pm Bob O'Booey:

Rochester: birthplace of Wegman's...greatest supermarket in creation.
And home turf of Gary Lewis (Yes, that Gary Lewis)
  9:06am inspector clouseau:

Discovering great hot rod music websites trying to solve the mystery instrumental on your minimal info. Gotta be a name, like Link Wray, likely soundtrack, circa 1960. But there's too much to sift through.
  7:30pm JC:

I'm just listening to the show. I don't know if the mystery instrumental question has already been solved. The song is called Dragster by Johnny Fortune
  8:32am inspector clouseau:

I see JC has already solved the mystery instrumental. I found "Dragster" when Bill Kelly played another Johnny Fortune song this week. Label is Park Ave.
