Saturday Matinee – G.E. Smith, Buddy Guy & Danny Rockabilly

Saturday, 23 May 2015

The very underrated G.E. Smiths Top Ten Seconds on SNL.

We may have posted this one before, but so what. It’s awesome. Buddy Guy‘s “Damn Right I Got The Blues.

So let’s wrap up this bad baboso with Danny Rockabilly and His Clan. [Music is cool, vid might not be safe for kids.]

Have a great weekend, folks, and remember those who sacrificed their lives on this Memorial Day weekend.


Saturday Matinee – Jim Huish, Jim Stafford, School House Rock & Amber’s Drive

Saturday, 10 January 2015

When I’m Gone (The Cup Song) Jim Huish of the Nashville Americana-pop group Amber’s Drive offers up a cover of the song “Cups (When I’m Gone)” [via].

Jim Stafford‘s “My Girl Bill” popped into my head the other day for no good reason. I’d forgotten about it for decades, and kinda wished it had stayed that way. So where do we go from here? Maybe this.

I never watched SHR, but that one seems familiar.

Amber’s Drive has good harmonies, a nice vibe, and a song that jives with my attitude these days. Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Sparky, Linus & Lucy, Magic, Douchebags, & the Downchild Blues Band

Saturday, 2 October 2010

Loni Anderson (Good God, look at that hair!) introduced a tribute to Charles Schulz, creator of Wee Folk, aka Peanuts. Today is the 60th anniversary of its debut. RIP, Sparky.

David Benoit’s version of Vince Guaraldi’s classic  “Linus and Lucy.”

Amazing magic trick [found here].

Remember when SNL was funny? Buck Henry was one of the top writers in the early days.

According to one source, “Downchild” was the band that inspired Dan Akroyd to create The Blues Brothers.

BTW, The Competition will be closed at Midnight, Pacific Standard Time, tonight, so get yer last minute entries in.

Have a great weekend, folks.

Gimme A Reason

“Knock knock.”
“Who’s there?”
“Babs’ uvula.”
“Babs’ uvula who?”
“I dunno, Babs, but but I do know this.
Babs, your uvula is on the fritz.”

[Image from here, with our favorite completely unrelated knock-knock joke in italics from SNL/Chevy Chase a long time ago.]
