I have heard of, but had rarely actually heard, the Fugs. Now I think I may have to embark on a quest to acquire everything by them, because Nothing is the best thing I heard today, even better than Bobby Sherman on the 70s station!
  10:58pm JakeGould:

Well, will be 100% honest here as a teenager in the 1980s who served Knishes, Cherry Lime Rickeys, Buttermilk and Sanka (many times all the same order!) while listing to the Police on my Sanyo walkman knock off… Gem Spa was a very light shadow of what it once was.

It used to be every corner store owned by a Jew in NYC served egg creams and related stuff… That slowly faded away in the 1980s and is gone now.

I appreciate their desire to keep the history alive but it never felt right in recent years.

When that Pepsi ad was new I thought the slogan was SO clever - "beats the others cold" it's a saying AND Pepsi is literally served cold!
Those were simpler times.

Excellent show Ira - I was gonna say “great” but that word has been hijacked indefinitely. Always love and look forward to your fill ins. Hope Dave can shake this shit. Cheers from northern ca somewhere between weed country and wine country.

damn, didn't think the Crazy Horse version of Get a Job could be topped but here we are!

I miss the Spazz but this is a great show
Avatar 11:47pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Joe B: When/where did Crazy Horse do it? Also, I'm shocked to see that comment because I know from Monday afternoons that you are a Sha Na Na man.

TOPT - it's on the Americana album from 2012
  Swag For Life Member 11:49pm Ira:

As Georgia points out, the definitive version of Get a Job is from Melvin & Howards.

I don't know why Satanic Majesties get slagged so much when it has such great songs.

And the 3-D cover! Who has had a cooler cover?
Avatar 11:56pm Joe B:

ah yes thanks TOPT!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm mariano:

Right PJ? All my life I'd heard how horrible it was, then decades ago hanging out with my uncle and some friends I ask "What album is this" (it had been playing a while) and they said TSMR, and I was blown away. I'm glad I got to hear it that way, not knowing who it was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm Scott Williams:

Great show Ira, thanks! And zero dropouts - tho a lot can happen in 3 minutes...
  11:58pm Uke Lele:

This is amazing, thanks Ira <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm mariano:

Thanks Ira, thanks for the no-dropout 3-hour block, Scott (hope I didn't just jinx you), take care y'all!
  11:58pm PJ:

RIP Florian. Years ago, I read an interview with Florian or Ralf, or both, and one of them made the comment that, after seeing the effect that 19th century music had had on Germany in the 20th century, they wanted to remove all drama from their music. They succeeded, and it was beautiful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm Yes:

thank you Ira , Scott and everyone
