Lyda died from heart failure at the tender age of 31
Avatar 1:14pm Juke Joint Jonny:

The Ajax soap commercial came before either the Doors or the Dristells, I'll wager.
Avatar 1:15pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Or Kinks.

Thelma Todd ended tragically, and apparently, so did Lyda. Those shorts must have been cursed.
Avatar 1:42pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Tiny Bradshaw! This is darn close to music, Rex, watch out pardner.
  1:44pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Hey Rex. Heading down to Asbury. Thanks for the beach tunes!
  1:49pm NO BROW:

My Man Roosevelt! The Honeydripper! Good afternoon, Fools!
  1:52pm NO BROW:

Andre? Man, I tuned in at the right time! Is that the "Pig Snoots" and "Blame it on Obama" guy? Love him!
Avatar 1:53pm Mailman Tom:

Hey, this song really swings!
Avatar 1:54pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Swings? Rocks? Practically Ska.
  2:04pm Stuart Rose:

Didn't the Dolls do this song?
  2:04pm NO BROW:

I only WISHED I had a voice like that Gadabouts guy!
Avatar 2:05pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Clear enunciation isn't doing Stranded In The Jungle much good.
Avatar 2:10pm BEAVO:

Yes the Dolls did it, Saw them do it live when they did that reunion tour back in 09 I was on the 2nd LP.
  2:15pm Listener Jumpy:

Sort of Sub-Mariners?

…makes you wonder, don't it.
