Episode 140: The Executive Version (Vinyl Solution Part VII)
(Featuring a carefully chosen selection of novelty recordings, exquisitely arranged and presented for a person of your discerning taste.)

Here is the horrible truth: I’m am perpetually 12 years old.  Then again, most of us are, but when I see a record that has a novelty song on it, I buy it.  That’s just the way I am.  While Halloween has offered a lot of opportunities to work funny, it has only recently occurred to me to really work this angle of my sense of humor on this show.  These are records I never really get to feature on this show, and I love getting a chance to lay out a good set that runs though this ragged, strange, and wonderful area of vinyl recordings.

There are weird things you can find on records that YouTube and CDs just don’t offer.  Fortunately, I had with me in the studio a lot of like minded folks who like a good Garage stomper as much as a guffaw.  Again, this features mostly new-ish stuff to my collection, but a few classics surfaced (Billy & The Boingers, Monty Python, etc.), but much of this hour is very new to me.  I was pleased to locate such a great a diverse batch of wax, and while I will try to lay off the weirdness for the next few shows, I can’t deny how much fun this show was.

See you in seven!
