Being Vincent Price was a pretty good gig.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Being Vincent Price is pretty much my dream job.
Tip for any Jerseyans: The Orange Squirrel in Bloomfield does a Vincent Price dinner every October. 5 or 6 courses, all recipes from his personal cookbook.

Picture of Melody getting married to Danno (in a cave!) !

Photoplay (October 1970)

"James MacArthur & Melody Patterson: Marriage on the Rocks"

By Lisa Reynolds

They got married in a cave. She had to change her gown ‘cause of the cave dust. After such a beginning, it must be love.

This girl loved F Troop
  1:38pm .:

She dated Bobby Fuller, too.

Songs like "My Mumblin' Baby" are why I pledge to FMU.

Hey! Wait a minute? Bob Dudley Butler? Is that you Rob?
  2:02pm RevPhil:

Future jazz singer Gloria Lynne was in THE DELLTONES.
Had a hit with "I Wish You Love."
  2:06pm bobdudleybutler:

I am sometimes known as Rob but mostly Bob or Bobby. I live near London in the UK.
  2:08pm Bklyn Kid:

do they have radio shows like this around London? can I stream it?
Avatar 2:10pm Marc Francis:

I know a Rob who makes music as The Voluntary Butler Scheme & Gene Dudley, that's why I asked.
  2:13pm bobdudleybutler:

Some great shows on BBC6 music - including your very own Mr Iggy Pop who plays a very diverse selection of music from different genres. Check on BBC website - not sure if you can get it outside the UK. Dudley is my middle name - I used to think it was a bit weird but people tell me its cool!
  2:23pm Bklyn kid:

Tasteless songs like this Chop Suey ding dong is why i pleadge to wfmu

Is this the original version of Hound Dog?
  2:34pm kinkykitchendancers:

Big Mama Thornton's was the original version of Hound Dog.
