Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Gaylord Fields:

Ira, I've signed on specifically to answer the question you asked in your head: Which Perry Mason episode did Tommy Noonan appear on? Rest assured it was "TCOT Crying Comedian" on which that favorite actor of yours was Perry's client. [Spoiler alert: He was innocent, and the real killer confessed in the courtroom.]

I've never actually listened to Parachute. I figured it must sound more like Savage Eye than like SF Sorrow, but I was wrong, I think.

I love Cross Talk, but it sounds like no other Pretty Things record that I've heard.

Dave the Spazz or Ira the K? I can't tell the difference. It's all good.
  Swag For Life Member 10:33pm JG:

Can never remember if Gator is the sequel to White lightning or if White lightning is the equal to Gator
  10:33pm Farkus:

O maybe Farkus watch Gator instead. Cause Bowinkle, he's making me mad. Farkus like boats jumping dirt roads, and Burt Reynolds.

Is concession stand shrimp the forerunner of gas station sushi?

the vagueness makes me suspect it's a "soup of the day"... meaning "whatever soup we decided to make today"
  10:56pm Bowinkle LeMotoe:

Bat soup, of course.

Watched Across 110th Street, the other night. Anthony Quinn and Yaphet Kotto. Odd casting, but apparently it might have been John Wayne and Sydney Poitier. Filmed in extremely gritty locations.

I'm thinking this is the best night I've had in a long time.
  11:20pm lomojunkie71:

I shouldn't think anymore.
  11:21pm JakeGould:

Still feeling liminal but at least I feel movement.
  Swag For Life Member 11:21pm Ira:

@Ken: Nothing funny about microphone "P" pops!
  11:22pm Tim 07030:

Is this the downbeat part of the show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm McGroovey:

I think this is probably the Downbeats part of the show.
Avatar 11:24pm Joe B:

gimme a downbeat, maestro!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm McGroovey:

Oh. I was wrong; it's the Downbeats, not the Downbeats.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm JOE FROM DC:

How long can we stay downbeat? And was that Hank Ballard singing lead on the first Downbeats?
  11:24pm lomojunkie71:

He will pick it up with from a motel 6
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm JOE FROM DC:

Now these are some Downbeats! Did any of them appear on Upbeat?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm McGroovey:

I'm guessing he's going to play the Downbeats, not the Downbeats, next.
  11:27pm Tim 07030:

Did any of the many Downbeats cover ‘Murder Most Foul’?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28pm McGroovey:

So many different funny jokes.
  11:28pm spodiodi:

i can't get enough of that jam, Tim
  11:29pm JakeGould:

@McGroovey: Why can’t there just be one funny joke?
  11:30pm Jed:

Playing the Downbeats is one thing, and there's nothing wrong with the Downbeats, but I'll be danged before I sit here and listen to the Downbeats!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30pm McGroovey:

Maybe there is just one good funny joke, and we've all just been laughing along politely with all the other jokes?
Avatar 11:30pm TDK60:

..there'll be a quiz..

Another good band name would be The Canadian Pennsylvanians.

Not sure about which came first, Ira, but I do believe Garner Ted Armstrong plays on both songs.

I like doughnuts with cream in the middle.
  11:41pm otto:

Thanks for the tunes and chitter chatter Ira and all - ta ta!
  11:42pm JakeGould:

But that’s not the kinda doughnut they were singing about.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm McGroovey:

Hey, cool discovery, that Donuts I mean Doughnuts song is freely downloadable at archive.org
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45pm McGroovey:

He, cool discovery, that Jackson Brothers record is available as a 7" from Norton Records. I'm adding it to the list of things I want to throw money at them for.
