It’ll be no surprise to you that we’re coming from Costa Rica this week



I don’t know anything about Ray Batts. Except this song.







Delmore Schwartz, candy covered poet.

If you gotta go to jail, don’t tell them you’re in there for stealing sugar!







Listen to that Bo Diddley beat.

Sammy what were you thinking?




I’ve got a secret
I ain’t gonna tell
I’m goin’ to heaven in a split pea shell
Oh, Lordy me, didn’t we shake sugaree
Everything I have is down in pawn

I pawned my watch, an’ I pawned my chain
[Even I don’t deserve myself, so ?] ashamed
Oh, Lordy me, didn’t we shake sugaree
Everything I have is down in pawn

I’ve got a song to sing
Ain’t very long
I’m gonna sing it right if it take me all night long
Oh, Lordy me, didn’t we shake sugaree
Everything I have is down in pawn

I’ve got a secret
I ain’t gonna tell
I’m goin’ to heaven in a split pea shell
Oh, Lordy me, didn’t we shake sugaree
Everything I have is down in pawn

– Elizabeth Cotten





I guess this blows our chance of doing an entire bear show.


I don’t know much about the medieval lollipop.




Here lies the powder and perfume
The pretty clothes are scattered ’round the room
And it’s so like Candy

Here lies the lipstick and the face
The coloured tablets keep it all in place
And it’s so like Candy
So like Candy

What did I do to make her go
Why must she be the one
That I have to love
So like Candy

Here lies a picture of a girl
Her arms are tight around that lucky guy
And it’s so like Candy

And in her eyes a certain look
I thought I’d seen the last of long ago
And it’s so like Candy
So like Candy

I remember the day that picture was taken
We were so happy then
But that’s so like Candy
She seemed so sweet to me I was mistaken
Oh no not that again
But that’s so like Candy
She just can’t face the day
So she turns and melts away

Here lie the records that she scratched
And on the sleeve I find a note attached
And it’s so like Candy
“My Darling Dear it’s such a waste”
She couldn’t say “goodbye”, but “I admire your taste”
And it’s so like Candy
So like Candy


– Elvis Costello / Paul McCartney





Francis Copolla is opening a new vineyard down here and he invited us down. And I’d do anything for Francis.

What was he doing for those twenty years? Mostly fishing. And they called him ‘Lazy’?




In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
There’s a land that’s fair and bright
Where the handouts grow on bushes
And you sleep out ev’ry night
Where the boxcars are all empty
And the sun shines ev’ry day
Oh, I’m bound to go where there ain’t no snow
Where the rain don’t fall and the wind don’t blow
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

Oh, the buzzin’ of the bees in the peppermint trees
‘Round the soda water fountains
Where the lemonade springs and the bluebird sings
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
You never change your socks
And little streams of lemonade
Come a-tricklin’ down the rocks
The hobos there are friendly
And their fires all burn bright
There’s a lake of stew …and soda, too
You can paddle all around ’em in a big canoe
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

Oh, the buzzin’ of the bees in the peppermint trees
‘Round the soda water fountains
Where the lemonade springs and the bluebird sings
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains


– Harry Mc Clintock




Well Candy, you’re not dreaming. And you’re not crazy.

I think here at TTRH we’re all grown ups, so why don’t we listen to the original version.




It’s not that I like old music. It’s just that I’m not hearing anything like that from out of left field nowadays.

Listen to the drums on this record. They’re quite good ….. You owe me five bucks, Jim!
