I had to say something
To strike him very weird,
So I yelled out,
"I like Fidel Castro and his beard"..........

Post subject:  TTRH 70 Danger

I found TTRH70 dangerously boring. :-(
Thanks God Dave Edmunds helped me out of the wreckage when I fell asleep...
Wonder who suggested Bob to play Eddie Constantine. I loved the guy as a charming B rank actor when I was a kid, but was unaware he sometimes used to sing.

Ha! Yeah, musically speaking, I found the first listen of Danger to be less than interesting, but as is the case with most TTRH shows for me, it takes a few listens to get attached.

But with each show I'm learning more and more to trust Bob's song selection decisions (assuming he chooses all the songs). His superior taste goes without saying, and the Mercy Dee Walton tune sealed the deal for me yet again.

I also laughed out loud twice during this show:

Once when he described the possum faking death -- "it falls to the ground, it's eyes glaze over, it's tongue lulls out to the side, and no amount of prodding, shaking or poking will revive the animal".

And another when he said "... Danger is our middle name. Actually, Time Radio is our middle name".

He may not write any of this material, but his delivery is priceless.

At about 20:30 (between Clarence Ashley and Leonard Cohen) there is a brief snatch, under the voice, of 'Serenade to a Cuckoo' (1964) by Roland Kirk.

TTRH #71 : Birds
track 6 : Bluebird of Happiness

I was very surprised Bob Dylan had a word about L'Oiseau Bleu, a 'fairy' play written in French in 1908 by Belgian Count Maurice Maeterlinck, Nobel Prize winner literature in 1911. This Flemish romantic was not at all a musician and hence not a trompetist as erroneously mentioned by Bobby.

I had to edit again this topic since 'my' playlist of Season One recently disappeared on ER!!!
Luckily I saved it on my Mac, webmaster, since not sticky on your site :-)
Now the long list shows all the episodes.
Hope this will be useful to some of you.

TTRH 72 More Birds
Track 6 : What a pity Bob allowed us only for 1:21 to listen to Miles Davis' marvellous version of Bye Bye Blackbird... :-(
(fortunately also extended in the background of track 7)

I obviously adored The Trashmen's crazy Surfin' Bird when I was 20 but never heard The Bird's The Word by The Rivingtons released the same year (1963). Nice introduction, Bob!

Most interesting discovery, thanks to this episode, was to dig into the Nazi musical propaganda listening on the Internet to multiple samples by Charlie & His Orchestra.

Nice work, PFB. This is a very useful reference for me, as I'm sure it is for many others.

TTRH #73 : Joe.

Joe Louis used to be one of the most popular boxers in the world (even more than crazy Muhammad Ali aka Cassius Clay). More than 60 songs are dedicated to him.

Just discovered a DVD is available via Amazon on this band. (unfortunately only Region 1 DVD format).

However 42 audio tracks can be downloaded in full and free from the Internet.

Great stuff of historical value which even Churchill loved to listen to.
Whereas Bob made me discover Slim Gaillard during Season 1, he brought me Charlie & His Orchestra during Season 2. Much appreciated!!!

Indeed, Stewart, unusual BD plays on his weekly show a record one can hear any time on any commercial station.
(however I still like to listen from time to time to this 50 years old great hit of The Killer in my music bar)

TTRH 75 came over as a very cold shower since totally unexpectedly as final episode of the second season.

Despite the sad note the tune by Roy Hogsed was fortunately a happy one. :-)
Till September, Bob. Next season better?

I completed playlist TTRH #74 Heat.
Red Hot by Billy Lee Riley was released in fact two years after the original version by Billy 'The Kid' Emerson (on the Sun label as well).
