Is Corky pairing his hot dog with a Faygo Red Pop? The beverage of my youth.

re: Swamp Hop: Please do not play racist music unless you are prepared to talk about it on air.
  1:32pm davefromtoronto:

that clip never made sense to me - how can she be surprised he thinks she looks like a tramp then brag about what a tramp she is...

  1:35pm davefromtoronto:

hey eartha lime if that was the case he's be talkin the whole show!

you never been to fool's paradise before?
Avatar 1:35pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Rest assured, Smokey Wood, I will endeavor to keep on truckin'g. This cut makes it easy to do
  1:45pm davefromtoronto:

hey if you're gonna play songs that objectify women you better talk
about it!

Wats the other radio station he has a show on?
Avatar 1:56pm Mailman Tom:

Hey Dave from Toronto: Yes, that audio clip irritates me every time I hear it. It makes no sense.
  1:56pm davefromtoronto:

you wouldn't believe some of the stuff that gets played here.

so offensive they're not offensive...i think.

ha - thanks M Tom - while we're at it do you know what "crawdad holin' means?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Rex often acknowledges stuff is Politically Incorrect
...as if any of us weren't aware of it.
Clearly - Rex is not glorifying any of that - no Hates here
- but it goes w/ the Vintage - & So Bad it's utterly Great - Historical aspect of the focus here
...seems to me.
...Bad things happen to rabbits in these choons periodically...

"We're back on the scene with the record machine, correct time now 11:17." Guess I stayed up later! So great to hear your remembrances.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...If anything - Rex here helps expose the pioneering work of Minorities & Women that aren't getting enuff historical cred - to this day
- w/out some middle class whitewash of what attitudes really were...
Avatar 2:12pm Juke Joint Jonny:

The bomb throwing Rabbit makes an important point. It's difficult to accept this music on its own terms, in the context of its time, but it is necessary to do that, and rewarding.

i did custom metalwork and helped with the stained glass for the lampoon building, it was the coolest building, got the whole tour. it's a sphinx!

Always great to get confirmation SesameStreet was as subversive as we liked to believe.

Nat Lamp Radio Hour was the best. We listened to it every week. Much funnier than Saturday Night Live!

That voiceover kind of sounds like Rosko... could it be??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

How great is he - ?!
Avatar 2:55pm Joe B:

awesome show!
Avatar 2:56pm Juke Joint Jonny:

A show for the ages, R.
Avatar 2:56pm Joe B:

did he say this is jimmy castor on vocals for money?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm listener 126464:

Thanks Rex and Chris! That was great
  2:57pm Papito:

Ah man, I don't wanna say bye bye ! It ain't fair !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm efd:

@Joe I thought he said Jimmy Castor was on that label, not (necessarily?) on that record.
