200 Faces.

336 Years.

Train your monitor.

It’s spelled “hamster.”

“This guy could play an armadillo tail nailed to a railroad tie.”
Justin Johnson plays a 4-string hurley.

Camógaíocht is only played by women and is almost identical to Iománaíocht which is only played by men.

Georgetown University students opine on the President’s immigration policy.

Members of Congress attempted to deport a naturalized U.S. Citizen over false allegations.

Aynaz Anni Cyrus grew up in post-revolution Iran, where if a 9-year old is raped, she has committed adultery by default, and may be tortured and/or sentenced to death. LISTEN TO HER STORY.


On 16 July 1969, Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and the team of Apollo 11 captivated the entire world by sending men to the moon and returning them safely to Earth in just 8 days.

When they were preparing for the moon shot, THIS was No.1 on the Billboard Charts. THIS was No.1 when they left. A month after the astronauts returned, the top hit was THIS.

Three years later, the crew of Apollo 15 placed the only art installation on the lunar surface, a memorial to those astronauts who lost their lives .

Saturday Matinee – Tony Joe White, Jane Rose, Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band & RelaxTrio

Saturday, 20 July 2019

BTW, that’s “poke sallet” for you city slickers. Poke is poisonous, and I remember it being called “hillbilly acid.” Young pokeweed is edible when cooked, but no U.S. food organization endorses the consumption of pokeweed regardless of how it is prepared, and the berries can kill you. It’s a lanky odd-looking weed with purple stems, grows to +6 feet.

“Sallet” is of French origin and refers to a mess of greens (including spinach, mustard greens, etc.) cooked until tender.

Jane Rose is nasty. I love it.

Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is worth a listen. Country gospel rock is always good for the soul.

Finnish band RelaxTrio kicks psycho billy to a new level of psycho billy, whatever that means, but that girl pounds bass.

Linda Teränen (Vocals & double bass)
Oskari Nieminen (Vocals & guitar)
Vilho Voutilainen (Drums & backing vocals)

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more whatever.

I want one that tastes like Skyline Chili but I’d settle for a marble-sized eggamuffin.

Saturday Matinee – Traffic Circle, Yes, Commander Cody & Bill Kirchen

Saturday, 13 July 2019

I have that record somewhere. I think it’s called “Roundabout.”
Oh wait.

YES, they did some some cool stuff to listen to while sitting in the dark at 2:30AM staring at a lava lamp and watching rotating light cylinder projections on the walls of your dorm bedroom and suddenly realizing that all your friends had gone to bed. C’mon admit it. They sang like musically talented prepubescent girls. Relayer was their last decent album IMO, but none of their stuff was roadtrip music.

Commander Cody‘s classic cover (of Charlie Ryan‘s 1955 recording of “Hot Rod Lincoln“) featured the King of Dieselbilly Bill Kirchen.

Check out what Kirchen did with some guitar mods over 60 years ago:

See what he did there? Now listen to this:

Be patient, there’s some awesome in that vid.

Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll do something or other tomorrow.
