Hello, Goodbye

 

Selected BobTalk

Every place I go, and I go a lot of places, people say hello.

A little riff rocker (about Hello with Sherman Williams Orchestra).

One person we got to say hello to is someone who said goodbye much too soon. He’s the man who brought rock and roll into America’s living rooms. Here’s a song that reached number nine on the Billboard Charts…then they turned it over, and the B side went all the way to number one. (about Hello Mary Lou).

As Todd (Rundgren) always used to say to me ‘Dum vivimus, vivamus,’ which roughly translated means, ‘While we live, let us live.’ Todd’s a smart guy.

His dad was a river boat pilot who taught him guitar at age four. And as much as he loved music, he loved baseball just as much. He actually received an offer to join the Philadelphia Phillies, but patriotic-minded Harold joined the army instead. When he got out of the army, he heard Elvis’ Mystery Train, and started writing songs (about Conway Twitty).

This record is probably most familiar to ya from Fats Domino, but I couldn’t resist playing this hard rocking version (about Hello Josephine).

The man who brought accordion into Western Swing (about Pee Wee King).

A song that’ll help you get down to the real nitty gritty (about Hello Mello Baby).

Alvis Edgar Owens, Jr. nicknamed himself after a mule on his family farm (about Buck Owens).

Here’s an example of some great Hawaiian-influenced music that caught the ear of New Yorkers...An example of how Hawaiian music met big bands and created something new (about Hello! Aloha! How Are You?).

The song was originally called ‘Hello, Hello’ and if it had kept that name we couldn’t have played it here, because we need a hello song that says goodbye!

I always love the crazy fade on that record…

Selected BobTalk

As usual, Willie the Shake said everything you need to say, so for the next hour we’ll just be presenting footnotes of a musical variety on the subject of youth and age, young and old… (after reading from William Shakespeare).

Here’s that madman, the gentleman out of Tippo, MS, no stranger to you long-time listeners (about Mose Allison).

A trumpet player and a singer who filled that gap between rhythm and blues and jazz (about Hot Lips Page).

Got kind of a beatnik sound to it, so feel free to snap your fingers, on the two and the four, please! (about Like Young).

Yeah, Ridin’ that rainbow to cloudsville…crazy, man!

The Ramones mostly wrote their own songs, so when they decide to do someone else’s, it better be a hell of a song.

Here’s an example of how a great song is not a prisoner of time or place. Music travels through the air, so it knows no boundaries, it knows no borders (about Enjoy Yourself (It’s Later Than You Think)).

Recorded for A & M. And I believe the A & M Studios were on the site of Charlie Chaplin’s old studio, right there on Labrea. I’m not sure if this song was recorded there, but it would be somehow appropriate because Charlie Chaplin was definitely an older guy who had a taste for the younger girls (about Older Guys).

Maybe someday there will be a question on the Trivial Pursuit card ‘Who was the first artist ever played on YJeme Time Radio Hour (about Muddy Waters).

Interestingly, oftentimes when Charlie Poole performed live, he would obscure parts of the lyrics when he sang. He forced record buyers to buy his records, simply so they could figure out what he was singing…He was known as a country artist, so that’s mostly what he recorded, but if you saw him live, you would hear a mixture of minstrel songs, Victorian ballads, humorous burlesque-type numbers, as well as old-timey country music.

From his best selling album, Harvest…gee I thought it would have been ‘Trans’!

Selected BobTalk

There is great music happening all over the country, and sometimes you got to seek it out and if you don’t seek it out, it’s just gonna disappear (about Seven Days).

That song is kind of a mash-up between a couple of blues standards (about Lucy Mae Blues).

It’s time for Monday, and if I know my radio show that sounds like a sound cue (before Blue Monday).

Supposed to only be a B side, for those of you who don’t know what a b side is, that was other side of a 45 that wasn‘t a hit. The A side, in this case, was supposed to be Let’s Spend the Night Together but most DJs thought it was too sexual.

Kind of an English / Irish way of saying next Wednesday. The Finnish call it something I can not pronounce, but it is translated as ‘center of the week’. Here in the US we just call it Hump Day.

They had kind of an unusual instrumentation…the got a drummer, a guy playing saxaphone, and Mark Sandman who sings and wear a homemade D-tuned, 2 string bass that he built himself (about Morphine).

After all those wasted days and wasted nights, you know there’s gonna be a Sunday morning coming down.

Well I can see the sun coming up over the horizon meaning our day here is done. Night creeps in, throwing shadows across the Abernathy building.

This is the city-Los Angeles, Ca...Sometimes you want to know about more than just the city, you want to know about the whole state. That’s where I step in, I host the radio show.

There’s a lot of earthquakes in California. If you feel a tremor there’s two things you should do: get in a doorway and makes sure that doorway’s in Cleveland.

It never caught on enough to get it in your local music store. I wish it had, it’s sure cut down costs on the road (about San Francisco Bay Blues).

West coast schemes, California dreams and specific pacific themes.

Selected BobTalk

It’s October, or as I like to call it, Rock-tober. Which of course means next month is Roll-vember…May you never hear surf music again. That’s actually Jimi’s thought, not mine.

You’ll hear a siren on this record; it’s not really a siren, it’s Jane Mansfield screaming (about Rock Around the Rock Pile).

A lot of people think that Ray Charles stopped making tough R & B when he left Atlantic Records. They think all of his records had strings and he was going after the pop audience. While a lot of his albums were like that, he was still issuing singles that had that great combo sound. Here’s an example.

You know why that record sounds so good? Because it was a performance. The whole band was playing together in the studio. It wasn’t a thing assembled from parts, put together in little bits and pieces, until you had a complete take. Everyone started at the same time and finished pretty much at the same time, and all the time in between you just hung on for dear life. You can feel that energy in the record. And you can hear also in there how the line is blurry. It’s a hillbilly record, but if I told you Louis Jordan recorded that song you wouldn’t blink an eye. (about Gonna Dance All Night).

If you’re listening to this show while driving, pull over and get your rest. Don’t be tempted by those little white pills: the crossroads, the greenies, the bennies, the West Coast turnarounds…no matter what they’re called, they spell trouble, and that’s with a capital T. A public service announcement from your friends here at Theme Time Radio Hour. (before A Tombstone Every Mile).

This one’s for all the metal heads (about Uranium Rock).

For all you first time listeners, this is how we roll: with nothin’ but classic rock!

Selected BobTalk

Here at Theme Time Radio Hour, we’ve always aspired to be the Cadillac of radio shows. So it’s only apropos that we take one of those baby’s out on the road!

That’s from 1954, and you can tell by the way that saxophone roars in that rock and roll was just around the corner (about A Pretty Girl (A Cadillac and Some Money).

Perhaps the best rockabilly record to come out of England (about Brand New Cadillac).

You can tell those guys got their start in a swing band. You hear a little bit of Count Basie’s ‘Sent For You Yesterday and Here You Come Today’ in that song (about Paul and Dud Bascomb).

One of them mid-fifties recordings. Features Bob’s brother, Billy Jack Wills. I like this song because it uses Cadillac as a verb.

A record like this isn’t even about the song, it’s about the whole thing: the singer, the musicians, the lyrics and the sound – especially the sound. You couldn’t make a record that sounds like this today (about Courtin’ in a Cadillac).

One of the premier rhythm and blues vocal groups…In front and center was Earl Carroll, with a straw hat and a cane. He would always bring down the house when he sang the song that gave him his nickname. In 1961, Earl got an offer to join The Coasters, and for the next 20 years her toured and recorded with them. That was a time when there was more than one Coasters group out there on the road. I can’t speak about the other ones, but if you saw the Coasters with Earl Carroll you were in for one hell of a show (about The Cadillacs).

The veracity of this song is not total; however, it is quite catchy (about Geronimo’s Cadillac).

Selected BobTalk

William Shakespeare was asking ‘What a piece of work is man’. Here on Theme Time Radio Hour we’re more concerned with all the pieces. Tonight, or today if you’re listening during the day, I’ll be speaking off the top of my head. I excited down to the tips of my toes cause I have my fingers in a lot of pies but I’m not going to leave you without a leg to stand on. I’m gonna tell you that today we’re gonna be talking about the human body from head to toe.

It’s important in a show like this to define our parameters, so let’s start things off with Smokey Robinson and The Miracles-From Head to Toe

Did you know that it only takes 7 pounds of pressure to rip your ear off? Everyone’s tongue is different. They’re like fingerprints, though they wouldn‘t be as convenient for identification. Many people think that parts of your body continue to grow after your dead. This is not true. It’s an illusion. Your nails and your hair look like they keep growing because your body dries out and begins shrinking. Strange but true.

We’re discussing the human body here on Theme Time Radio Hour, and here’s the largest organ of the body, it grows faster than any other organ; I know you’re way ahead of me. You know it’s the skin.

Louis was an influence on many people. As a matter a fact, back in the 50’s when they asked Elvis Pressley where he got his wiggle, he told them ‘from Louis Prima, of course.’

This is Theme Time Radio Hour with Boney Themes, Sinewy Schemes, and Muscular Dreams.

That combination of fingers you don’t want to be on the business end of (about Fist City).

Here’s another great finger song (introducing Finger Poppin’ Time).

Like the speed metal of blue grass (about Roll In My Sweet Baby’s Arms).

He’s in love with a woman who’s got some big legs. I understand his position completely.

We’d like to remind you that what soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul and the more you use your brain, the more brain you will have to use.

Well, as the sun sets over the harbor here in Caanes (?), I can see that it’s time for us to go. In closing I want to leave you with the words of Walt Whitman:

'I sing the body electric,

The armies of those I love engirth me and I engirth them,

They will not let me off till I go with them, respond to them,

And discorrupt them, and charge them full with the charge of the soul.

 

Was it doubted that those who corrupt their own bodies conceal themselves?

And if those who defile the living are as bad as they who defile the dead?

And if the body does not do fully as much as the soul?

And if the body were not the soul, what is the soul?’

Good Question Walt. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to go get a full body massage. I’ll see you next week right here on Theme Time Radio Hour with more full-bodied, Schemes Dreams and Themes. Au revoir from Caanes.

This week we’ve got kind of a controversial subject… Something you’re not allowed to do inside a restaurant, or even a bowling alley. It didn’t used to be that way. It was something you used to be able to do right out in public. You didn’t have to hide in your own house doing it. Today’s show is all about smoking. We’re not here to encourage it or to glorify it. You’re smart enough to look up all the facts…So sit back, smoke ‘em if you got ‘em, and enjoy the next sixty minutes as we blow a few musical smoke rings your way.

Can get you in trouble or can remind you of the wonders of the night before (about Lipstick Traces on a Cigarette).

You know some people don’t smoke tobacco. They’re smoking some other stuff. Perhaps you’re familiar with it. Some people call it pot
