Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm BronwynB:

@uncle michael: thought the same thing, though the very beginning of that track sounded like batman louvin brothers-style
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Uncle Michael:

If Al Hirt had played this when I went to his club in NOLA, all might not have been lost. What a clip joint.

ABC canceled "Shindig!" mid-season to put that show's "Part Two" episodes in its timeslot.

{Batman, Robin, climbing wall on bat-rope. Window opens, Joe Belock pops out}

Robin: Holy Blind Shakes, Batman, it's the People's Champ!

Batmans Right you are, old chum. He's protecting the city's airwaves just like we're protecting the city streets.

Joe: Hi there, Batman and Robin. Could you hold this plug for a minute? I'm trying to get the cord for my headphones untangled.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Uggh, sorry about that.
Picture of Adam West's epic Simpsons appearance.

good one parq!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm Uncle Michael:

The fact that West and Shatner never did dinner theater "Odd Couple" is kind of tragic.
Avatar 12:36pm Joe B:

wow that would have been awesome. no script, just the two of them fighting over which one is felix and which one is oscar

holy butt-shot?
Avatar 12:39pm David Shortell:

They couldn't get Burt Ward for that "Tickler" track, apparently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I like in the Batman movie where he just happened to have a can of shark repellent spray in his utility belt.
OTOH, the TV episode where the they were about to be eaten by a giant clam gave me nightmares.
  12:41pm P-90:

Farewell, beloved Bat Dude...
  12:42pm frenchee:

@Parq, I can totally picture that Belock moment
  12:42pm Bluesman:

Ken, the delivery is priceless. Batman grunts: "Bat...shark...repellent!"
  12:43pm pinto bean:

Fitting tribute to the only Batman that matters
Avatar 12:43pm Parq:

Joe, UM, throw in Jack Lord as Speed or Murray, and you got a real dust-up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm blee:

So interesting to know that this is members of Sun Ra's Arkestra
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm Ken From Hyde Park:

When the TV series played, a blurb on the screen said "In Color." Our TV was black and white and I'd yell "No, it isn't!"
  12:48pm KP:

Holy B, as in Belock!
  12:51pm Dennis Diken:

great going Joe! do you have Sam Chalpin's version of "Batman" on hand?

Joe, do you have any of the Nelson Riddle TV soundtrack stuff you could play?
  12:56pm frenchee:

That was bat-tastic!
Avatar 12:57pm Claw!:

too bad Wesley Willis' "I Whooped Batman's Ass" isn't exactly radio-friendly...

Has anyone mentioned the Penguins winning the cup?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03pm Whosondephone:

  1:05pm Adam:

"Batman" by Voivod, please :) ?
Avatar 1:07pm Parq:

Dominick, deadly perceptive of you.
Avatar 1:08pm Parq:

I can't remember what show, but I remember seeing Jan and Dean do their version on TV.
  1:09pm greektitan:

There's a Voivod cover of the Batman theme as a bonus track on the Dimension Hatross album, but maybe that's the wrong kind of band for this show?
  1:09pm Bluesman:

Joe - for moment there I thought you were going to need some Bat Throat Spray!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm paul b:

Sorry was away for a few minutes have you played the Jam's version of the Batman theme yet?
  1:11pm greektitan:

I didn't realize someone mentioned the Voivod cover before I posted something about it.
  1:15pm Dean:

Looks like "Look Out for the Batman" was performed, nominally, by The Merriettes: https://www.discogs.com/Merriettes-Its-The-Batman/release/1152714

The artist associated with the group, Tony Eira, appears in a Copyright Catalog for 1967 under a different name, Antonio Teixeira, Jr.: http://bit.ly/2rj9cG6 Evidently, Eira was a jazz bassist.
  1:16pm Larry from Westwood:

Great show. Working from home and digging the show. How cool that Dennis D of the Smithereens is listening!
Avatar 1:19pm Joe B:

thanks dean for the info. also thanks for the requests i couldn't get to, sorry!

great catch dominick!
  1:30pm frenchee:

I love the "new" Dion album.
Avatar 1:32pm Carmichael:

Are the Osmonds sitting in with Zappa?!?
Avatar 1:34pm Parq:

Miss Miriam has been getting a lot of good press on the Dion release, and deservedly so. The prevailing tone seems to be that the execs who shot down the album in the sixties were a gang of money grubbing pinheads -- which, I'm sure, is accurate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm mrdonutsu:

Holey Osmond Crap! www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38pm Guido from Cologne:

Killer set!
Osmonds! ... who would have believed!
Avatar 1:38pm Joe B:

and that was from the donny and marie pilot. it got picked up even with that!
Avatar 1:39pm Joe B:

thanks guido!
Avatar 1:41pm Parq:

Tragically, it was probably picked up because of that.
Avatar 1:42pm Claw!:

I *just* got my swag from the postman, and I am excited!
Avatar 1:43pm WO Town Wick:

That Dion album is so good. Beautiful sound--nice physical package to the record, too. My 70+ year-old uncle was visiting this weekend and I played it for him -- blew his mind.
Avatar 1:43pm Claw!:

this tomato sticker is hella cute... now to agonize over what to stick it on... decisions, decisions!

Xetas, uncomfortably homonymic to the Zetas.

Hey, Imaginary Icons! Nice!

hopefully yours will come soon, Pi!

"you're killing me"

"Its not my fault" They xeroxed the melody, the riff or whatchamacallit
  1:55pm jt:

Loved the Batman at the beginning of the show, took me back.. damn. That was good t.v. Is Tv still this good? I haven't watched in 20 years.
  2:06pm Anonymous Coward:

Hey HEY, as Krusty would say - Madder Rose in the house!
  2:06pm Jeff formerly from Rahway:

It feels like summer alright! I'm checking in from deep inside the NJ pine barrens. 100 F here in S Jersey but we have a cold river, cold beers & cool tunes from TCM.
  2:11pm George in WO:

This new Alejandro disc is fantastic!! I see he shares song writing credit with his producers, McCaughey and Buck.
