Episode 60: Havana Nagila

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, January 23 2008 (10:00 PM - 11:30 PM) at Zodiac Racquet Club, Southgate MI
    “This week, Mike, Schmoe, and Mickey return to reviewing albums, taking a look at
Havaña Daydreamin’.  Plus, we introduce a new segment to the podcast: Hud’s Hooker Korner, hosted by special guest Hud.  (And the Roger Clyne podcast starts at 38:49.)

    So much for resolving to do a faster turnaround with the editing.  This episode was recorded on Wednesday and didn’t get uploaded till late on the following Monday!  For some reason Zodiac was very crowded on that Wednesday and we were thinking we might have to resort to the old empty haunted beauty parlor again (as we had done in Episode 34); but fortunately, the back room cleared out in time for us to set up and make our phone calls.  Greg, who had suggested this week’s album review, was unexpectedly incommunicado; but we were able to reach Mike.
    01:30 - Lucy’s cookbook at Amazon & Borders
    01:53 - Lucy’s cookbook at Barnes & Noble
    02:02 - Ralph MacDonald’s CD, Mixty Motions
    02:19 - Ralph MacDonald’s site
    02:39 - Paul Shaffer’s Day in Rock
    03:49 - the decade and millennium too, but century sounds better
    04:19 - no pun intended
    04:48 - announcements not “announces”
    05:22 - as you can see here, our last album review was Homemade Music in Episode 55
    11:19 - no, it’s a tilde there, too.  Here’s the Wikipedia source of my Havana information; and here it is at BuffettNews and at Buffett World
    13:32 - no, I’m wrong.  My dictionary defines “dapper” as “neat in appearance” (not just in attire) so I guess it can still apply
    16:33 - the other song titles from this January 19 2008 episode of Car Talk were “Get Off the Stove, Grandma, You’re Too Old to Ride the Range”, “I Don’t Know Whether to Kill Myself or Go Bowling”, “One Day When You Swing that Skillet, My Face Ain’t Gonna Be There”, “If You Won’t Leave Me, I’ll Find Someone Who Will”, and “Billy Broke My Heart at Walgreen’s and I Cried All the Way to Sears”
    20:34 - anyone else remember the old Radio Shack CB tribute LP All Ears?
    20:51 - I don’t know why but I always pictured the narrator of “West Nashville Grand Ballroom Gown” as a trucker.  But, now having admitted it out loud, I went back to check the lyrics and there’s really nothing there to suggest that idea
    22:52 -  songs taken From the Vault at COBO.org.  The first one was edited to save time
    25:10 - also, edited to save time
    26:45 - I really should not have been so quick to say that.  Not having bought that CD, I don’t know what its liner notes might have been
    28:58 - Schmoe sees “Defying Gravity” as being about getting high.  I see “Defying Gravity” as being about death.
    36:15 - speaking of carbonated beverages, it’s fairly well known we in the north call it “pop”, the coasts call it “soda”, and the south calls it “Coke”.  This map is a good breakdown of usage
    38:39 - Schmoe refers to our Changes review in Episode 34
    38:55 - link to Turbo Ocho concert clip
    39:11 - an unnamed person recommends the Download Helper add-on for Firefox
    39:42 - hear “I Do”, “Mercy”, and the other Turbo Ocho songs at the RCPM audio player
    40:15 - that would be Chad Heckler, who appeared in Episode 52
    40:30 - more details about Mike’s custom guitar coming soon…
    42:24 - “Jim” being, of course, Mike’s brother and the singer of our theme song
    42:40 - Government Honey and Voodoo Cafe
    42:56 - themes for Hud’s new Hooker Korner segment by Bernard Herrmann and Ira Newborn
