There was a terrible version over here by a comedian called Frankie Howerd. Yuk.

This is the best Ish Kabbible record!
  11:25am dano59:

On the theme, as i read it ... Come A Little Bit Closer
  Swag For Life Member 11:29am Ira:

@dano59--I don't think so. I'll return to the theme next set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30am Listener Baby:

Thought I had the theme, but shot myself down with a little research. Scratching my head??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32am Tim 07030:

Roll Over, Beethoven for the theme?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33am Mike Sin:

Well all right -- nice surprise! Hi Ira.
Avatar 11:34am djsheilab:

I've been listening since the start and it's been a real treat. Thanks Ira!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36am ChrisB.:

Hey @djsheilab! Did you get to Baltimore?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39am Listener Baby:

I think I got it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42am Listener Baby:

If I'm right, if Teardrops were pennies by Dolly and Porter would work. Again, if I'm right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44am Listener Baby:

Nope, I'm wrong again.
  11:45am P-90:

Happy Birthday @Mom!
Avatar 11:46am Clay Pigeon:

Enjoying the show! Yo-Yo. Wow! Some of that Donnie stuff was recorded in Muscle Shoals. He is a talented man. Loved the Three Dog Night. One track by them I loved that yiou rarely hear is Pieces of April. Take care, Ira.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48am Listener Baby:

There is a real obvious theme here, but it's too obvious. If I'm right, don't play a Kinks song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49am Matt in Nebraska:

Never heard this version of "Looking at You" before. Awesome!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51am Listener Baby:

Actually, the whole of the show follows a certain theme.
  11:52am dano59:

OK Ira ... Annie's Song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53am Listener Baby:

All American artists?
  11:53am dano59:

It's a nice parlor game ...
  11:55am paul:

All Mormon artists.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55am Listener Baby:

Wait.. Under 3 minutes? Doesn't the funkadelic tune ruin that?
  11:55am mrmucho:

if dano59 didn't get it, can we get a hint? is it musical (e.g. "key change in last verse")?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56am Gaylord Fields:

Best birthday wishes to Mom the K!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57am ChrisB.:

Beloved Met Rusty Staub very ill, apparently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57am AndyIowa:

Hi Ira! Enjoying your playlist! Let's Go Mets! ⚾️
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58am melinda:

That Mets song was great.
  Swag For Life Member 12:02pm Ira:

All of the artists have something in common that relates to another of their songs.
  12:03pm georgia:

Are you still adhering to the theme? If not what was the last song of the theme?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:03pm Gaylord Fields:

Would "Mickey" by Toni Basil fit the theme?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:04pm Tim 07030:

They all have a song named 'Maggot Brain'?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:04pm Gaylord Fields:

Okay, by your hint it doesn't. Back to the drawing board.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:05pm Uncle Michael:

I'm unable to think this hard this early.
  Swag For Life Member 12:06pm Ira:

@Georgia --first set (except bed music) and third set (incl. bed) were themes. I'll return in the next one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm Gaylord Fields:

I'm going off to watch No Wave films at MoMA — that'll be easier to decipher than this theme.
Avatar 12:08pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Each one of these artists saved Iggy during an overdose by dumping him in a tub full of ice?
  12:09pm mrmucho:

I got it. "Hotel California" by the Eagles, "Sugar Magnolia" by the Grateful Dead,
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:09pm Uncle Michael:

Sly had moved on from recording as Sylvester Stewart by this time?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:10pm common:

ira. all.
  12:10pm mrmucho:

"Money" by Pink Floyd
  12:11pm Slaboch:

I was listening to Penny, but now I'm tuned in! Clearly I have been missing a very divisive show theme thus far!
  12:13pm mrmucho:

ok I was not precise enough. but the Eagles was right.
  12:14pm stumped:

California link?
  12:15pm georgia:

that buttermilk pt 1 sounded a lot like 2120 s mich ave
  12:15pm paul:

All American artists.
  12:17pm Gaylord Fields:

Well, MS has a particular format. And this is close...
  12:17pm mrmucho:

5th Dimension - "Stoned Soul Picnic"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm Listener Baby:

They all have vibes?
  12:18pm mrmucho:

Hall & Oates "Private Eyes"
  12:19pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Damn, I missed the Mets Special !
  12:19pm Gaylord Fields:

My amended guess: “I’m 28” by Toni Basil
  Swag For Life Member 12:19pm Ira:

@mrmucho - that song would work!
  12:21pm Slaboch:

"I Spy (For the FBI)" by Jamo Thomas
  12:22pm mrmucho:

"Coal Miner's Daughter" by Loretta Lynn
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22pm mcgreivey:

What a bunch o' groovy toonz.
  12:23pm paul:

Ira, I have to leave soon. Please post the theme on the comments board after it's revealed. Thanks!
  Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Ira:

@mrmucho - yes!
  Swag For Life Member 12:24pm Ira:

@paul - will do
  12:24pm mrmucho:

Ira's hint gave it away for me. This was tough!
  12:24pm paul:

  12:24pm Gaylord Fields:

Or “The Ballad of John and Yoko” by the Beatles?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24pm mcgreivey:

I think the theme "good songs". Final answer.
  12:25pm mrmucho:

None of the other songs posted are right, I believe. Ira also kinda gave it away on the last mic break.
  12:26pm mrmucho:

"Our House" by Madness
  12:27pm Gaylord Fields:

Or any other Beatles song not on the “1” album.
  12:29pm Dennis Diken:

diggin' the show Ira! great to hear YFF with Richard Peterson. "Big City Dick," the documentary on Peterson is a must see!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm Uncle Michael:

I'm pretty sure that's not the theme. Will say no more.
Avatar 12:33pm Joe B:

i can't pretend i don't know when beatlefest is .... it's right down the street! next weekend!
  12:33pm mrmucho:

ok if this Hollies song counts, then I will also say "Stand" by REM
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm Uncle Michael:

If he theme is what's being hinted at, how could any MC5 song fit?
  12:36pm mrmucho:

"Oops I did it again" by Britney Spears
  12:39pm mrmucho:

the theme is very related to Michael Shelley's show
  12:39pm Cliff:

Love it, no idea what the theme is though!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Tim 07030:

the Britney gave it to me, mr mucho.
