Thanks, Doc. I thought I saw that on a Jerry Lee album when I was a kid.
Valhalla Memorial Park in the valley (where Lorna was stuffed in the ground) is a great place to take a date with a bottle of turkey 101. Not like there is much more to do in N. Hollywood than drink, date,produce porn or build spy planes! HiCCuP!!!
Hey Von R U familiar with that song Nutrocker?Later covered by Emerson Lake and Palmer on their Pictures At An Exposition album.
KDKA Pittsburgh Django Jack Bogut loved "The Shortest Song in the World ", and lots of other schtick
49 cents is about what they still cost, in some thrift stores.
My 7 year old was just going crazy over "Tell Me Baby". "That song's been stuck in my head for like two years!"
Where did this come from?!?
Von: Yes! A personal favorite of mine was The Slithery Dee. Sort of a Santa's helper, Krampus deal. Absolutely my entry point for radio. Toured the station, met someone. I'll have to ask my mom if she remembers who.
Steve - Was Bogut the one that did "Old Frothingslosh, the pale stale ale with the head on the bottom"?
The Cadets recorded for Modern Records, the Bihari Bros. Label in Cal. The same group recorded under the name The Jacks on RPM records. They only used the name The Cadets when they appeared live on stage. Wacky but true.
Usually, as Fool's Raradise unfolds, I scan my cable listings for future monster movies to record on the DVR. I've discovered of late that the Bollywood show 'Namaste America' is on during Rex's time slot. Turns out FP & Hindi film dance routines are a great match! The sight of dozens of colorfully clad, naan-fed beauties gyrating to the sounds of the Sting Rays is a Thing of Beauty. The experience is most heartily recommended.
Makes sense, Doc. George Clinton did something similar with Parliament/Funkadelic in the seventies. Same band two labels, simultaneously.
Von: Sounds right. Apparently we did meet Jack B during a station tour that my mom talked them into.
Jennifer in Colton:
Accordion songs , Rex!? Is it that late in the show already???
Von - Yes!!
http://wfmu.org/profile/481351118/Von_the_Trucker No, Old Frothingslosh ("A Beer So Light, the Foam is on the Bottom") was from Rege Cordic, who preceded Jack Bogut in the morning slot on KDKA in Pittsburgh. Cordic was immensely popular, but was attracted to the glitter of Hollywood, and left the 'burgh to pursue his fortunes out there. He never had the success on the West Coast I think he was hoping for.
