John Bunny born in 1863 and died in 1915. That's the oldest person that's ever been on the Memorial Playlist!

John Bunny looks like he's familiar with John Barleycorn.

Mmmmmmm. Saturday.....

John Bunny looks *exactly* like my old boss, which is terrifying.

I love Rex's Fools Paradise, everyone should be made to listen.
  1:26pm Bklyn kid:

yes they should, starting with the song after Mohawk Squaw
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Also, Rex— I volunteered you to sing Frank Gorshin's Riddler song at the Hoof & Mouth. Hope you don't mind.

Hi Rex and FMU family. I find the political climate exciting. Trump just Hit Us With His Rythm Stick. Peace and love to all ; )

Ahoy fellow Fool - happy Saturday. Thanks for another perfect start to a west coast day, Rex!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm JohnEBGood:

Hey Rex
Are the records on your site 78's?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Wait, what was the name of that place with the records again?
Avatar 2:10pm Reeshard:

Back in the golden era of locally produced Detroit TV, there was a travelogue host named George Pierrot (local pronunciation: PURR-oh). George was a large figure squeezed into a wingback chair with a globe next to him. It was assumed, both by his guests and viewers, that George had been everywhere. George offered, by way of proof, a comprehensive knowledge of international food. If a visiting filmmaker remarked "Tuscany's quite a place, isn't it George?" George would respond, "Ah…the gnocchi!" Whenever I hear Rex catalog the continental U.S., sandwich hut by burger joint by rib shack, I'm happily transported back home, sitting on the living room rug, watching big George on TV.

Don't forget the brown sugar and the horseradish in those cocktail wieners.
Avatar 2:40pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Hey, Reeshard, thanks for the memories of George Pierrot! I remember He was so eternally stuck in that chair we kids snarkily assumed George was immobile from the neck down. Which made the idea that he was so well traveled funnier.
Avatar 2:40pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Yup. That's a square alright.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm Greg from ZONE 5:

"Dick Whittinghill" is the squarest name I've ever heard.

You WFMU listening squares keep the world in place

No Brow is quite a square.

There's some real radio exploitation there. Going to need some marathon bucks to fix up the turntables.
