A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on his shoes

Mark Twain

I always tell the truth… even when I lie…

– Tony Montana (Scarface)




Welcome to the underground garage. I’m Little Steven.



We will discover that the truth can set you free.







You know who told me that joke? It was Orson Welles! And I’m dying if I’m lying.



Well, it sounds much nicer when you put it to music.










Before they started making operas, The Who was one of the great singles bands of the sixties.




It’s like some people say. The devil has all the good songs.








Hearts on fire
My love for you brought only misery
Hearts on fire
Put out the flames and set this cold heart free
One short year our love burned
Until at last I guess you learned
The art of being untrue and then goodbye
What could I do except to cry and moan
Lord, what have I done
Once we were as sweet and warm
As the golden morning sun
Hearts on fire
My love for you brought only misery
Hearts on fire
Put out the flames and set this cold heart free
Friends say it’s just a game
And that no one is to blame
Go out forget her lies
But she’ll be there and sparks will fly
My love has turned to hatred
Sleep escapes me still
God, please take this heart of mine
’cause if you don’t the devil will
Hearts on fire
My love for you brought only misery
Hearts on fire
Put out the flames and set this cold heart free
Hearts on fire

-Gram Parsons





I feel like we lost something when it became all guitars and no piano.




Fool me 25 times and maybe you’re Guitar Slim.




Don’t play that song for me
It brings back memories of days that I once knew
The days that I spent with you
oh no, don’t let it play
It fills my heart with pain
Please stop it right away
I remember just-a what it said
It said: “Darling, I love you”
You know that you lied
“Darling, I love you”
You know that you lied
“darling, I love you”
You know that you lied, you lied,
You lied, lied, lied, lied

Remember on our first date
You kissed me and you walked away
You were only seventeen
I never thought you’d act so mean
But baby you told me you loved me
You told me you cared
you said, “I’ll go with you darling almost anywhere
But darling, you know that you lied, lied, lied, lied, lied





It’s not about the length of the solo, it’s the feel. A lot of those blues records had more feel than you could ever put in a twenty minute solo.



She sounds like a spirited gal. Not the kind of gal that Faye Adams was singing about. At least if this next song is to be believed.




People see us everywhere.
They think you really care.
But myself, I can’t deceive,
I know it’s only make believe.

My one and only prayer, is that some day, you’ll care.
My hopes, my dreams come true, my one and only you.
No one will ever know, how much I love you so.
My only prayer will be, some day you’ll care for me,
But it’s only make believe.

My hopes, my dreams come true, my life, I’d give for you.
My heart, a wedding ring, my all, my everything.
My heart I can’t control; you rule my very soul.
My only prayer will be, some day you’ll care for me,
But it’s only make believe.

My one and only prayer, is that some day, you’ll care.
My hopes, my dreams come true, my one and only you.
No one will ever know, how much I love you so.
My only prayer will be, some day you’ll care for me,
But it’s only make believe.

-Conway Twitty



My advice, pick the one you like best and see the other two on the side!



Here’s another one of those records that I don’t know anything about






True love (your love)
True love (your love)
True love, baby
That’s what you give to me

True love (your love)
Your love (your love)
True love, baby
That’s what you give to me

God made the world
And he made it round
I got my baby
And I’m glad I found

Her love was meant for me
And my baby, she’ll always be

She gives me true love (your love)
True love (your love)
True love, baby
That’s what you give to me

Uh, true love (your love)
Your true love (your love)
True love, baby
That’s what you give to me

True love (your love)
Your love (your love)
Your love, baby
That’s what you give to me

Love was made, I don’t boast
When He made you, He made the most
You’ve got that certain touch
To me, baby, you mean so much

You give me true love (your love)
Your true love (your love)

-Carl Perkins




That’s why, til this day, if you have air conditioning in your car, you see their names. Hoii, Norm and Max.



We will discover that the truth can set you free.










We’ve been here for the past three and a half hours playing our favourite songs.



You’ve gotta take everything I say today with at least a grain if salt, cos half of what I said wasn’t true. And the other half was a lie. That’s the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Theme Time Radio Hour, your home for
what Dreams, who Themes and why Schemes

Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers

– Voltaire

“You’ve written a couple of songs Bob. You got any advice?”

– caller “Bob”





Maybe there’s a guy walking by. He’s walking home to see his wife.Or he’s walking away from his wife. Or his wife’s waiting for him. Or she’s not waiting for him. Or she’s with someone else.



All you’ve got to do is get outside of your own head







As a younger man, I thought about going into journalism.



Do you take this man to be your lawful wedded wife?











Are you having a good time? Are you enjoying yourself? Are you comfortable?




Here’s “Who do you love?” Or should that be “Whom do you love?” We’ll look that up and get back to you.






What is this thing called love?
This funny thing called love?
Just who can solve its mystery?
Why should it make a fool of me?

I saw you there one wonderful day
You took my heart and threw it away
That’s why I ask the lord in heaven above
What is this thing called love?


-Cole Porter





Rudyard Kipling, questionable poet


There will be a quiz at the end of today’s broadcast.





I’ve talked to your Mother, and I’ve talked to your Dad
They say they’ve tried but it’s all in vain
I’ve begged and I’ve pleaded, I’ve even got mad
Now we must face it, you give me a pain

Oh, How can I miss you when you wont go away
Keep on telling you, day after day
But you wont listen, you always stay and stay
How Can I Miss You, When You won’t Go Away?
How can I miss you, when you wont go away

Your never ending presence, really cramps my style
I dreamed, that it wont always be the same
At first I was attracted, but after a while
Have you ever heard of, a hard to get dame

Out of three billion people, why must it be me
Oh why, oh why won’t you cut me loose
Just do me a favour, and listen to my plea
I’m not the only chicken on the roost


Dan Hicks



David Bowie sings a song about a city of them.



Perhpas they were invoking the Socratic Method.




I’ve been made blue.
I’ve been lied to.
When will I be loved?
I’ve been turned down.
I’ve been pushed ’round.
When will I be loved?

When I meet a new girl,
That I want for mine,
She always breaks my heart in two.
It happens every time.

I’ve been cheated.
Been mistreated.
When will I be loved?

When I meet a new girl,
That I want for mine,
She always breaks my heart in two.
It happens every time.

I’ve been cheated,
Been mistreated.
When will I be loved?
When will I be loved?
When will I be loved?

– Phil Everly



He was the son of noted sex bomb, Mamie Van Doren.



Socrates, looking for truth until the very end.








Another riddle for the ages was the riddle of the sphinx



As I always say, you don’t dance to the information.






Alan Freed was a big fan of this record. Or maybe he just got paid to be a big fan of this record. I’d like to think he was really a big fan cos I like the record.



I just love the word “sphico”

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!

Let’s start on the straight and narrow


In Sweden the number’s 80000. I don’t see how that saves any time!





There’s no helping some people!



It worked out well for everybody. Well, except maybe for Decca Records.








This was years before he walked down Electric Avenue.


Let’s cross over to the other side of the law now. That’s where you find the really interesting people.



Breakin’ rocks in the hot sun
I fought the law and the law won
I fougth the law and the law won

I needed money ’cause I had none
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I miss my baby and I feel so bad
I guess my race is run
She was the best girl that I ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

Robbin’ people with a six-gun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I miss my baby and the good fun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I miss my baby and I feel so bad
I guess my race is run
She was the best girl that I ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

Sonny Curtis




I think I got this for a quarter. And I’m giving it to you for free.


I’ve got a friend named Stan. He’s not very smart.



If you’ll gather ’round me, children,
A story I will tell
‘Bout Pretty Boy Floyd, an outlaw,
Oklahoma knew him well.

It was in the town of Shawnee,
A Saturday afternoon,
His wife beside him in his wagon
As into town they rode.

There a deputy sheriff approached him
In a manner rather rude,
Vulgar words of anger,
An’ his wife she overheard.

Pretty Boy grabbed a log chain,
And the deputy grabbed his gun;
In the fight that followed
He laid that deputy down.

Then he took to the trees and timber
To live a life of shame;
Every crime in Oklahoma
Was added to his name.

But a many a starving farmer
The same old story told
How the outlaw paid their mortgage
And saved their little homes.

Others tell you ’bout a stranger
That come to beg a meal,
Underneath his napkin
Left a thousand dollar bill.

It was in Oklahoma City,
It was on a Christmas Day,
There was a whole car load of groceries
Come with a note to say:

Well, you say that I’m an outlaw,
You say that I’m a thief.
Here’s a Christmas dinner
For the families on relief.

Yes, as through this world I’ve wandered
I’ve seen lots of funny men;
Some will rob you with a six-gun,
And some with a fountain pen.

And as through your life you travel,
Yes, as through your life you roam,
You won’t never see an outlaw
Drive a family from their home.

– Woody Guthrie


I wanted to talk about Jack the Ripper. I wanted to talk about Don King.


I fought the law and guess who won.




Well I’m running police on my back
I’ve been hiding police on my back
There was a shooting police on my back
And the victim well he wont come back

What have I done?

I been running monday tuesday wednesday
Thursday friday saturday sunday runnin
Monday tuesday wednesday thursday friday
Saturday sunday

Yes, I’m running down the railway track
Could you help me? police on my back
They will catch me if I dare drop back
Wont you give me all the speed I lack

– Eddy Grant



That’s what we call a “way homer”.



We’re going to play one quarter of his recorded output.


You’re not going to believe this story.







That’s not just a law. That’s just common sense.


Whenever a law is broken you can be sure that we’ll be there. I’m not going to tell you which side we’re going to be on. But we’ll be there.

Happiness is a warm gun.

– John Lennon



Theme Time Radio Hour, your home for delirious
Dreams, happy Themes and ecstatic Schemes

Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.


– Oscar Wilde


Happiness depends upon ourselves.

– Aristotle

by punkshits




Way to make lemonade, Jackie.


You know who’s really happy? The guy that got paid to do this research! Probably hadn’t even have to leave his house.




Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.

– Ernest Hemingway



Some people have to get high to make other people happy


I agree. So says me.




The U. S. Constitution doesn’t guarantee happiness, only the pursuit of it.

– Benjamin Franklin





Yes indeedy-do, I could not be happier to be with you today!


Richard Gere told me something the Dalai Lama once said



by daniellekiemel

Well I never kept a dollar past sunset,
It always burned a hole in my pants.
Never made a school mama happy,
Never blew a second chance, oh no

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.

Always took candy from strangers,
Didn’t wanna get me no trade.
Never want to be like papa,
Working for the boss ev’ry night and day.

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love, baby won’t ya keep me happy.
Baby, won’t ya keep me happy.
Baby, please keep me

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.

Never got a flash out of cocktails,
When I got some flesh off the bone.
Never got a lift out of Lear jets,
When I can fly way back home.

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.

– M. Jagger/K. Richards




I can’t promise I’m going to make you happy but I’m going to do my darnedest


There’s a name for people who want to go where you go. They’re called stalkers.



by Djabolica

I was so tired of being upset
Always wanting something I never could get
Life’s an illusion love is a dream
But I don’t know what it is

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

I was so tired of being upset
Always wanting something I never could get
Life’s an illusion love is a dream
But I don’t know what it is ‘cos

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

Life’s an illusion love is the dream
But I don’t know what it is
Everyone’s saying things to me
But I know it’s okay okay

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

Life’s an illusion love is a dream
Life’s an illusion love is the dream
Life’s the illusion love is a dream
Life’s the illusion love is the dream

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays
Todays are good

Bet you are tired of being upset
Always wanting something you never can get
Life’s no illusion love’s not a dream
Now I know just what it is

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

– Pete Shelley



I don’t know about you but I’m feeling high and happy


Elmore James. Not to be confused with James Ellroy, noted crime writer.



by R_A_e


I want to be happy
But I won’t be happy
Till I make you happy, too

Life’s really worth living
When we are mirth-giving
Why can’t I give some to you?

When skies are gray
And you say you are blue
I’ll send the sun smiling through

I want to be happy
But I won’t be happy
Till I make you happy, too

Happiness is a warm gun.

Dreams, happy Themes and ecstatic Schemes

Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.


– Oscar Wilde


Happiness depends upon ourselves.

– Aristotle

by punkshits




Way to make lemonade, Jackie.


You know who’s really happy? The guy that got paid to do this research! Probably hadn’t even have to leave his house.




Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.

– Ernest Hemingway



Some people have to get high to make other people happy


I agree. So says me.




The U. S. Constitution doesn’t guarantee happiness, only the pursuit of it.

– Benjamin Franklin





Yes indeedy-do, I could not be happier to be with you today!


Richard Gere told me something the Dalai Lama once said



by daniellekiemel

Well I never kept a dollar past sunset,
It always burned a hole in my pants.
Never made a school mama happy,
Never blew a second chance, oh no

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.

Always took candy from strangers,
Didn’t wanna get me no trade.
Never want to be like papa,
Working for the boss ev’ry night and day.

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love, baby won’t ya keep me happy.
Baby, won’t ya keep me happy.
Baby, please keep me

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.

Never got a flash out of cocktails,
When I got some flesh off the bone.
Never got a lift out of Lear jets,
When I can fly way back home.

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.

– M. Jagger/K. Richards




I can’t promise I’m going to make you happy but I’m going to do my darnedest


There’s a name for people who want to go where you go. They’re called stalkers.



by Djabolica

I was so tired of being upset
Always wanting something I never could get
Life’s an illusion love is a dream
But I don’t know what it is

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

I was so tired of being upset
Always wanting something I never could get
Life’s an illusion love is a dream
But I don’t know what it is ‘cos

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

Life’s an illusion love is the dream
But I don’t know what it is
Everyone’s saying things to me
But I know it’s okay okay

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

Life’s an illusion love is a dream
Life’s an illusion love is the dream
Life’s the illusion love is a dream
Life’s the illusion love is the dream

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays
Todays are good

Bet you are tired of being upset
Always wanting something you never can get
Life’s no illusion love’s not a dream
Now I know just what it is

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

– Pete Shelley



I don’t know about you but I’m feeling high and happy


Elmore James. Not to be confused with James Ellroy, noted crime writer.



by R_A_e


I want to be happy
But I won’t be happy
Till I make you happy, too

Life’s really worth living
When we are mirth-giving
Why can’t I give some to you?

When skies are gray
And you say you are blue
I’ll send the sun smiling through

I want to be happy
But I won’t be happy
Till I make you happy, too


– Vincent Youmans / Irving Caesar

Theme Time Radio Hour, your home for crazy
Dreams, loopy Themes and psycho Schemes

I have seen the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness

– Allen Ginsberg

Great wits are sure to madness near aligned

-William Shakespeare



Crazy
Crazy for feeling so lonely
I’m crazy
Crazy for feeling so blue

I knew
Youd love me as long as you wanted
And then someday
Youd leave me for somebody new

Worry
Why do I let myself worry
Wondrin
What in the world did I do

Crazy
For thinking that my love could hold you
I’m crazy for tryin
Crazy for cryin
And Im crazy
For lovin you

– Willie Nelson


Do vague acquaintances treat you as they know you far better than you would expect?


If craziness was a continent this would be the National Anthem.


Few things go together as well as Country and Western music and madness






It’s so relieving
To know that you’re leaving as soon as you get paid
It’s so relaxing
To hear that you’re asking whenever you get your way
It’s so soothing
To know that you’ll sue me, this is starting to sound the same

I miss the comfort in being sad
I miss the comfort in being sad
I miss the comfort in being sad

In her false witness, we hope you’re still with us,
To see if they float or drown
My favorite patient, a display of patience,
Disease-covered Puget Sound
She’ll come back as fire, And burn all the liars,
leave a blanket of ash on the ground

I miss the comfort in being sad
I miss the comfort in being sad
I miss the comfort in being sad

It’s so relieving
To know that you’re leaving as soon as you get paid
It’s so relaxing
To know that you’re asking wherever you get your way
It’s so soothing
To know that you’ll sue me, this is starting to sound the same

I miss the comfort in being sad
I miss the comfort in being sad
I miss the comfort in being sad

– Kurt Cobain




Time flies where you’re talking crazy



I’m getting excited again. Let’s just play the record.




I consider William Faulkner to be the Mose Allison of Jazz




Step right up and buy a bottle now folks!




In a buildin’ tall with a stone wall around
there’s a rubber room
When a man sees things and hears sounds
that’s not there
He’s headed for the rubber room
Illusions in a twisted mind
to save from self-destruction
hmm it’s the rubber room
Where a man can run into the wall
till his strength makes him fall and lie still
And wait for help in the rubber room
From his blurry vision of doom
a psycho in the rubber room
The man in the room right next to mine
screams a woman’s name
hits the wall in vain
He’s in the rubber room
I hear footsteps poundin’ on the floor
God I hope they don’t stop at my door
Hmm I’m in the rubber room
Now they’ve come to get me but they find
I’m a screamin’ pretty words tryin’ to make ’em rhyme
I’m n the rubber room hmm
a psycho I’m in the rubber room hmm


– Porter Wagoner





I’m almost frightened to go to the phones but I think we should



Farewell Frances. Farewell Kurt.

Dreams, Feline Themes and Kitty Schemes

No matter how much cats fight, there always seem to be plenty of kittens.

-Abraham Lincoln

A cat’s rage is beautiful, burning with pure cat flame, all its hair standing up and crackling blue sparks, eyes blazing and sputtering.

-William S. Burroughs




I believe cats to be spirits come to earth. A cat, I am sure, could walk on a cloud without coming through.

-Jules Verne

Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a purpose.

– Garrison Keillor



TIGER, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare seize the fire?

And what shoulder and what art
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand and what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain?
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? What dread grasp
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears,
And water’d heaven with their tears,
Did He smile His work to see?
Did He who made the lamb make thee?

Tiger, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

– William Blake (1757–1827)



This one’s for all the cat people out there.




So keep dial turned right here … I know it’s not actually a dial – I just like saying that.



Actually we won’t be doing much talking about the caboodle







I hear the click-clack of your feet on the stairs
I know you’re no scare-eyed honey.
There’ll be a feast if you just come upstairs
But its no hanging matter
Its no capital crime

I can see that you’re fifteen years old
No I don’t want your ID
You look so restless and you’re so far from home
But it’s no hanging matter
It’s no capital crime

Oh yeah, you’re a strange stray cat
Oh yeah, dontcha scratch like that
Oh yeah, you’re a strange stray cat
Bet your mama don’t know you scream like that
I bet your mother
don’t know you can spit like that.

You look so weird and you’re so far from home
But you don’t really miss your mother
don’t look so scared I’m no mad-brained bear
But its no hanging matter
Its no capital crime
Oh, yeah
Woo!

I bet your mama don’t know that you scratch like that
I bet she don’t know you can bite like that.

You say you got a friend, that shes wilder than you
Why don’t you bring her upstairs
If shes so wild then she can join in too
Its no hanging matter
Its no capital crime

Oh yeah, you’re a strange stray cat
Oh yeah, dontcha scratch like that
Oh yeah, you’re a strange stray cat
I bet you mama don’t know you can bite like that
I’ll bet she never saw you scratch my back

Jagger/Richards



I’ve always been partial to Mimi Van Doren



No two tigers have identical stripes … unless they’re wearing the same pyjamas.



Here he is with great evidence of his religious background, The Mighty Sparrow and Sell the Pussy.




That’s certainly a pet lover’s dystopia.


I was getting some photos developed when I ran into John C. Reilly.


I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail, it’s plain to see;
I won’t be much when you get thru’ with me.
Well, I’m a losing weight and a turnin’ mighty pale.
Looks like I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail.

Well, I thought the day I met you, you were meek as a lamb;
Just the kind to fit my dreams and plans.
But now, the pace we’re livin’ takes the wind from my sails
And it looks like I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail.

I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail, it’s plain to see;
I won’t be much when you get thru’ with me.
Well,I’m a losing weight and a turnin’ mighty pale.
Looks like I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail.

Well, ev’ry night you drag me where the bright lights are found;
There ain’t no way to slow you down
I’m as ’bout as helpless as a leaf in a gale;
And it looks like I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail.

I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail, it’s plain to see;
I won’t be much when you get thru’ with me.
Well,I’m a losing weight and a turnin’ mighty pale.
Looks like I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail.


-Buck Owens


It’s a song that raises more questions than it answers. The first time I heard it was on a warm Summer’s day. I thought I was hallucinating.



When we come back, I’ll solve the mystery of the Black Cat Bone


You better leave (meow) my kitten alone (meow, meow)
You better leave (meow, meow) my kitten alone (meow, meow)
I done told you big bad bulldog
You better leave her alone (meow, meow)

Don’t you know my kitten is a dream?
Don’t you know my kitten is a dream?
So, get your hands off of her, ’cause I’m her lovin’ man

*Mr. Dog I’m gonna hit you on the top a yo’ head
The Batgirl’s gonna miss you
And you’ll wish that you were dead

If you don’t lee-ee-eave my kitten alone
Yes, I love my little kitten
Like you hounddogs love your bone

Mr. Dog, I’m gonna hit you on the top a yo’ head
The *Batgirl’s gonna miss you
And you’ll wish that you were dead

If you don’t lee-eee-eave my kitten alone
Yes, I love my little kitten
Like all you hounddogs love your bone

Oh yeah
You better leave
You better leave

You better lee-eee-eee-eave.

Little Willie John




Now I don’t condone this behaviour … Don’t shoot the messenger


Sometimes we just play artists that confuse us totally …. by the end of this song, she starts speaking in a language that I can’t understand.

Dylan’s magnificent and seminal Theme Time Radio Hour series continues into Season 3 with this great show on the theme of Cats!

As usual, lots of great info and facts, corny jokes and witticisms.

More corny jokes than usual this week! ! And with the pussy angle (wasn’t that a porno movie title?) bucketloads of double entendres!

Lotsa literature too, this week a revisit to William Blake, cool cat poet!

Mad John C Reilly is back again – does that guy ever speak any sense? – with some totally insane piece! We’ve listened to it a few times and it still makes zero sense!

Nice to see Dylan aficionado Cat Power put in another appearance.

Some amazing music too of course. A really eclectic array this week!

We really liked the original version of Leave My Kitten Alone – a song we’d only known via the Beatles version – by Little Willie John. And of course the Stones classic Stray Cat Blues, with its very dodgy lyrics that wouldn’t see light of day if released today!

Seems to be a lot of cartoon theme tunes this week too!

The rather obscure theme of Cats lends itself to some really weird and bizarre stuff! The Stones and cartoon themes aside, surely the most obscure selection of Season 3!

Where the hell else are you likely to hear crazy but wonderful stuff like “The Cat’s Got The Measles, The Dog’s Got The Whooping Cough” by Walter “Kid” Smith and Norman Woodlief??! Or the totally bonkers “A Fish House Function (For A Cross Eyed Cat Named Sam)”?

All in all, a wonderful show!!

Truly the cat’s pyjamas!!

Next week’s show seems to be about the GOP! Yap, the theme will be Madness!



Enough yapping, let’s get back to some more music.

Theme Time Radio Hour, your home for

“Wise men speak because they have something to say. Fools speak because they have to say something

– Plato

Everybody believes in something and everybody, by virtue of the fact that they believe in something, uses that something to support their own existence.

– Frank Zappa




Something attempted, something done, Has earned a nights repose.

-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Sometimes something’s got to happen before something is going to happen.

– Johan Cruyff

Religion is something left over from the infancy of our intelligence, it will fade away as we adopt reason and science as our guidelines.

-Bertrand Russell



Turn your radio up because I’ve got something I want to talk about.



I speak because there’s got to be something between the records.


She was robbed …. Four months later Herman and the Hermits covered it and took it to the top of the charts. Four months later? It’s like they didn’t even give her a chance!




Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me
I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don’t need no other lover
Something in her style that shows me
Don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

You’re asking me will my love grow
I don’t know, I don’t know
You stick around now it may show
I don’t know, I don’t know

Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her
Something in the things she shows me
I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how


– George Harrison



Nobody sings like that anymore. He just makes it sound effortless, no matter how difficult it really is. I like the elegance of a guy like Clyde Mc Phatter. It’s like watching Fred Astaire.



Hey, here’s something interesting !!!



You know when I heard Herman’s Hermits singing, I thought it was just about having a piece of cake or riding on a ferris wheel. But when I hear Earl Jean singing, I know exactly what she’s talking about.




He’s the only President you could fit in your pocket.


Uh-Look-ah there
There she comes
Here comes that girl again
Wanted to date her since I don’t know when But she don’t notice me
when I pass
She goes with older guys from out of my class
But that can’t stop me from-ah thinkin’ to myself She’s sure fine
lookin’ man
She’s somethin’ else
Hey look-ah there
Across the street
There’s a car made just for me
To own that car would be a luxury
But right now I can’t afford the gas
A brand new convertible is out of my class
But that can’t stop me from-ah thinkin’ to myself
That car’s fine lookin’ man
It’s somethin’ else
Hey look-ah here
Just wait and see
Workin’ hard and savin’ my dough
I’ll by that car that I’ve be wanting so Get me that girl and we’ll go
ridin’ around
The town will be all shocked with my white top down
I’ll keep right on and dreamin’ and-ah thinkin’ to myself When it all
comes true, man
Wow! That’s somethin’ else
Look-ah here
What’s all this?
Never thought I’d do this before
But here I am ah-knockin’ on her door My car’s out front and it’s all
mine Just a ’41 Ford not a ’59
I got that girl and I’m-ah thinkin’ to myself
‘She’s sure fine lookin’ man
Wow! She’s somethin else ‘

– Eddie Cochran


Here’s his attempt the hit the stratosphere.


Woke up this mornin’ feelin’ fine.
There’s somethin’ special on my mind.
Last night I met a new girl,
In the neighborhood, whoa yeah.
(Ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo.)
Somethin’ tells me I’m into somethin’ good.
(Somethin’ tells me I’m into somethin’…)

She’s the kind of girl who’s not too shy.
And I can tell I’m her kind of guy.
She danced close to me like I hoped she would.
(She danced with me like I hoped she would.)
(Ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo.)
Somethin’ tells me I’m into somethin’ good.
(Somethin’ tells me I’m into somethin’…)

(Ahhh,) We only danced for a minute or two,
But then she stuck close to me,
The whole night through.
(Ahhh,) Can I be fallin’ in love?
She’s everythin’ I’ve been dreamin’ of.
(She’s everythin’ I’ve been dreamin’ of.)

I walked her home and she held my hand.
I knew it couldn’t be just a one-night stand.
So, I asked to see her next week,
And she told me I could
(I asked to see her and she told me I could.)
(Ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo.)
Somethin’ tells me I’m into somethin’ good.
(somethin’ tells me I’m into somethin’…)
(somethin’ tells me I’m into somethin’…)

(Ahhhh.)

I walked her home and she held my hand.
I knew it couldn’t be just a one-night stand.
So, I asked to see her next week,
And she told me I could.

(Ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo.)
Somethin’ tells me I’m into somethin’ good.
(somethin’ tells me I’m into somethin’…)
(Ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo.)
To somethin’ good, oh yeah, somethin’ good.
(somethin’ tells me I’m into somethin’…)
(Ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo.)
To somethin’ good,
Somethin’ good.
Somethin’ good.

– Gerry Goffin & Carole King




I wonder who was across the street from that church.



Something you remember people saying are their last words. If you’re going to be quoted, you hope it’s something good!

This week’s show is really really something!

Yap, Dylan’s magnificent and seminal Theme Time Radio Hour series continues into Season 3 with this great show on the theme of Something!

As usual, lots of great info and facts, corny jokes and witticisms.

More great Tom Waits madness. A clutch of nasty yet hilarious Jewish insults!

Loads more amazing music too with some stone-cold classics. Starting with Bob’s pal, the late great George Harrison and one of his many fine moments , the sublime “Something” from Abbey Road.

Lots of nice words from Bob too about one of his heroes, the great rock pioneer Eddie Cochran, dead at only 21.

Nice words too about Leonard Bernstein and great praise for the class and elegance of Clyde Mc Phatter’s amazing vocalisations.

It’s wonderful to hear the ‘original” version of “I’m Into Something Good” by Earl Jean McCrea. Infinitely better than the vile version from the awful Herman’s Hermits! And Bob is vehement in that same opinion too!

Of course also there are a few more obscure tracks such as She’s Got Something by Jimmy Ballad, who we’d never heard of before.

Also the fine “This Could Be The Start Of Something Big ” by polymath Steve Allen. We didn’t know the extent to which he was a musician too!

It was great too to hear “He Was Really Sayin’ Somethin'” by The Velvelettes and weird to hear Dylan make mention of Bananarama – who actually did a rather good cover of this with the Fun Boy Three back in the eighties!

All in all, a wonderful show!! Surely something, indeed!

Next week’s show seems to be about pussies or something! We only know somewhat cryptically that TTRH will be “letting the cat out of the bag”!



We’ve got to go for another week. But I hate to leave anything undone.

“Nothing can come of nothing: speak again.”

King Lear (I, i, 92)


– William Shakespeare



“Life is a tale told by an idiot — full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

– William Shakespeare

“Nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.”

– Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)





I couldn’t be more excited because today I’m going to talk about nothing.



As most of you know, I’ve studied nothing my entire life and I like to think I’m a bit of an expert.



There you go. you’ve got Freudian Therapy, Jungian Therapy, Reichian Therapy. And now “Them-Timian Therapy”. You know which one my money is on.


Hey mama, when you leave
Don’t leave a thing behind
I don’t want nothin’
I can’t use nothin’

Take care into the hall
And if you see my friends
Tell them I’m fine
Not using nothin’

Almost burned out my eyes
Threw my ears down to the floor
I didn’t see nothin’
I didn’t hear nothin’

I stood there like a block of stone
Knowin’ all I had to know
And nothin’ more
Man, that’s nothin’

As brothers our troubles are
Locked in each others arms
And you better pray
They never find you

Your back ain’t strong enough
For burdens doublefold
They’d crush you down
Down into nothin’

Being born is going blind
And buying down a thousand times
To echoes strung
On pure temptation

Sorrow and solitude
These are the precious things
And the only words
That are worth rememberin’


– Townes Van Zandt



Dr Dre was a member of NWA – not to be confused with the NRA, or the WBA.



That sounded like Me playing harmonica !!!




…. a dog commonly known as Snoop.



If you are going to say nothing, you ought to keep it sweet


I got plenty of nothing
And nothing’s plenty for me
I got no car – got no mule
I got no misery

Folks with plenty of plenty
They’ve got a lock on the door
Afraid somebody’s gonna rob ’em
While there out (a) making more – what for

I got no lock on the door – that’s no way to be
They can steal the rug from the
floor – that’s OK with me
‘Cause the things that I prize
– like the stars in the skies
– are all free

I got plenty of nothing
And nothing’s plenty for me
I got my gal – got my song
(I) Got heaven the whole day long

Heyward/Gershwin/Gershwin


We’ve learned nothing and we’ve accomplished nothing. And I certainly hope you enjoyed it.




No love, no nothin’
Until my baby comes home.
No fun with no one,
As long as baby must roam.

I promised him I’d wait for him
Till even Hades froze.
I’m lonesome, heaven knows,
But what I said still goes.

No love, no nothin’
And that’s a promise I’ll keep.
No sir, no nothin’
I’m getting plenty of sleep.

My heart’s on strike,
And tho’ its like
An empty honeycomb,
No love, no sir, no nothin’
Till my baby comes home.




Well Bill, say you do get divorced, you can start writing Country Songs …..



I call it the Theme Time Radio Hour silent treatment ….

Dylan’s magnificent and seminal Theme Time Radio Hour series continues into Season 3 with this great show on the theme of Nothing!

A theme based on the combined IQ of GW Bush, Paris Hilton and Sarah Palin? Kinda …. but not really!

Surprisingly, for such a nothing theme, there’s some amazing music and the show is especially entertaining!

We note that in the great intro is the line “a wealthy man terrorises a waitress“! Could this be a reference to the scumbag William Zantzinger of “The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll” infamy (who we wrote about yesterday) who kicked the bucket a week or so back?! Gotta be!

As usual, lots of great info and facts, corny jokes and witticisms.

Some great marriage advice too! A new breakthrough treatment called “Them-Timian Therapy”! I’ll remember those nuggets next time my marriage is on the rocks. Probably in a day or two!

A few guests, including some bimbo rabbiting on about tanning!

Loads more amazing music too with some stone-cold classics. Most of the Rat Pack are here today too – well the best two, Sammy and Frank anyway!

And one of our all time favourite songs, the majestic, harrowing and sublime Townes Van Zandt classic “Nothing” which Elvis Costello speaks very nicely about in the intro!

Of course also there are a few more obscure tracks such as the great Nothing by The Fugs and the magnificent It’s Nothing To Me by Harry Johnson, who we’d never heard of before.

We also loved the track Nothing But The Wheel – a new one to us – by Peter Wolf with some backing singer called Mick Jagger!

Is that really Dr. Dre and Snoop? Yap, some Nuttin’ But A “G” Thang! Yap!!! And did Bob really say “shizzle my nizzle“?

All in all, a truly wonderful show!! One of the best of Season 3, no doubt!

Next week’s show should really be something though!

Yap, the next theme is Something!



We’ll be back again next week and with any luck, we’ll talk about something.

Tracklisting

Intro
Nuttin’ But A “G” Thang – Dr. Dre Featuring Snoop Dogg (background)
Nothing – The Fugs
Don’t Say Nothin’ (Bad About My Baby) – The Cookies
There Is Nothin’ Like A Dame – Sammy Davis Jr.
Sweet Nothin’s – Brenda Lee (Little Miss Dynamite)
I Got Plenty O’ Nuttin’ – Frank Sinatra (Mr. Frank)
It’s Nothing To Me – Harry Johnson

No Love, No Nothin’ – Marlene Dietrich
Nothing Takes The Place Of You – Toussaint McCall

What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god.

– William Shakespeare



No man is born into the world whose work

Is not born with him; there is always work

And tools to work withal, for those who will….

-James Russell Lowell


It is necessary to work, if not from inclination, at least from despair. Everything considered, work is less boring than amusing oneself.

-Charles Baudelaire





What about your hypocratic oath, Doc?



The song title’s long, but the artist’s name is short.


Big boss man
Can you hear me when I call
Big boss man
Can you hear me when I call
Oh, you ain‘t so big
You‘re just tall, that‘s all

You got me working, boss man
Working ’round the clock
I want me a drink of water
You won’t let me stop
You big boss man
Can you hear me when I call?
Oh, you ain’t so big
You just tall, that’s all

Gonna get myself a boss man
One gonna treat me right
Work me hard in the day time
But I’ll sure rest easy at night
Big boss man
Can you hear me when I call?
Oh, you ain‘t so big
You just tall, that‘s all

by Al Dixon & A. Smith


I wonder which is worse, Street Prostitute or Poultry Processor? Well, anyway, both of them probably hate Mondays. So here’s their National Anthem.



Famous people don’t start out famous.



Some jobs are timeless and will never disappear. Such as gigolos ……


They call it stormy Moday, but Tuesday’s just as bad
They call it stormy Moday, but Tuesday’s just as bad
Wednesday’s worse, and Thursday’s also sad

Yes the eagle flies on Friday, and Saturday I go out to play
Eagle flies on Friday, and Saturday I go out to play
Sunday I go to church, then I kneel down and pray

Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy on me
Lord have mercy, my heart’s in misery
Crazy about my baby, yes, send her back to me

– T-Bone Walker


If I had to work for any Boss, I’d want it to be Bruce Springsteen




I don’t mind working, ’cause I used to be jerking off most of my time in bars,
I’ve been a cabbie and a stock clerk and a soda-fountain jock-jerk
And a manic mechanic on cars.
It’s nice work if you can get it, now who the hell said it?
I got money to spend on my gal,
But the work never stops, and I’ll be busting my chops
Working for Joe and Sal.

And I can’t wait to get off work and see my baby,
She said she’d leave the porch light on for me.
I’m disheveled and I’m disdainful and I’m distracted and it’s painful,
But this job sweeping up here is gainfully employing me tonight.

Well “Tom, do this” and “Tom, do that”, and “Tom, don’t do that”,
Count the cash, clean the oven, dump the trash,
Oh your loving is a rare and a copacetic gift,
And I’m a moonlight watch manic, it’s hard to be romantic
Sweeping up over by the cigarette machine,
Sweeping up over by the cigarette machine…

I can’t wait to get off work and see my baby
She’ll be waiting up with a magazine for me.
Clean the bathrooms and clean ’em good, oh your loving I wish you would
Come down here and sweep a-me off my feet, this broom’ll have to be my baby,
If I hurry, I just might get off before the dawn’s early light.


– Tom Waits




Well, Merle, I’m know they’d like it on whatever planet you’re thinking about sending it to.


I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear;
Those of mechanics—each one singing his, as it should be, blithe and strong;
The carpenter singing his, as he measures his plank or beam,
The mason singing his, as he makes ready for work, or leaves off work;
The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat—the deckhand singing on the steamboat deck;
The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench—the hatter singing as he stands;
The wood-cutter’s song—the ploughboy’s, on his way in the morning, or at the noon intermission, or at sundown;
The delicious singing of the mother—or of the young wife at work—or of the girl sewing or washing—Each singing what belongs to her, and to none else;
The day what belongs to the day—At night, the party of young fellows, robust, friendly,
Singing, with open mouths, their strong melodious songs.

– Walt Whitman





People don’t want to hear about what your dog did last week …



Dylan’s magnificent and seminal Theme Time Radio Hour series continues into Season 3 with this great show on the theme of Work!

Just reminds me, I forgot to go to work again today! Oh Fuck!

Another excellent show. Lot’s of great info and facts, corny jokes and witticisms.

And job interview advice too! I’m gonna really need that after I get sacked tomorrow!

The great Tom Waits is on board again with a fine track.

Loads more amazing music too with some stone-cold classics.

Of course also there are a few wonderfully obscure tracks – none moreso than the very strange The Coat And The Pants Do All The Work by Harry Reser!

A wonderful show!!

Can’t wait for the next one. We don’t know what the next theme is though as the show cuts out just as “Pierre” announces it!



See you round the water cooler

TTRH3.10x Bob Dylan TTRH Season 3 Repeat ‘Christmas’

Bob Dylan’s Theme Time Radio Hour

Season 3 – Repeat

Christmas

Misc /mp3 192 kbps/ 82 MB/ RS

Theme Time Radio Hour – Your home for Yuletide Dreams, Xmas-Tree Themes and Santa Schemes


Well it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. And for the next couple of hours, it’s going to sound like Christmas too. This is the special yuletide extravaganza edition of TTRH, chock full of Christmas themes, holiday dreams, and jingle bell schemes.


I heard the bells on Christmas Day

Their old familiar carols play,

And wild and sweet

The words repeat

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come,

The belfries of all Christendom

Had rolled along

The unbroken song

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Till, ringing, singing on its way

The world revolved from night to day,

A voice, a chime,

A chant sublime

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Then from each bleak, accursed mouth

The cannon thundered in the South,

And with the sound

The Carols drowned

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And in despair I bowed my head;

‘There is no peace on earth,’ I said;

‘For hate is strong,

And mocks the song

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!’

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:

‘God is not dead; nor doth he sleep!

The Wrong shall fail,

The Right prevail,

With peace on earth, good-will to men!’

-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Who Took The Merry Out Of Christmas ?

People all over the world forgot about Merry

Too busy fighting wars

Trying to make it to Mars

Searching for light and can’t seem to find the right star

Searching for light and can’t seem to find the right star

Who Took The Merry Out Of Christmas ?

-The Staple Singers



Some people call Bob Seger the poor man’s Bruce Springsteen, but personally, I always thought Bruce was the rich man’s Bob Seger. I love ‘em both though.




I think it’s actually against the law to do a Christmas programme and not play one of Charles Brown’s songs … this is one of the best.

Dylan’s magnificent and seminal Theme Time Radio Hour series continues with this episode themed on Christmas, that time for families to bicker and fight; that time for getting drunk in the morning, staying drunk all day and watching repeats of rubbish movies on TV!

Of course, being XFM, this is another repeat! Even worse, this time doubly so!! This was originally the 34th episode of Series 1 and was a special Two-Hour Episode themed on Christmas and New Year’s. It was repeated already in Season 2! Here she be again! Great work on the “recycling”, XFM!

“Mommy quick come here
Santa’s sweaty and he smells of beer”
He says “kid shut your mouth, you give me a headache”
And he’s jolly and hairy
But it’s hard to be merry
When the guys at the bar all say he looks like a fairy
But he’s doing it just for the loot
The man in the Santa suit

Fountains of Wayne


Right now we’d like to say Feliz Navidad to all of our Cuban Friends!


King Stitt was a toaster, and I don’t mean you could put bread in him…That was so good we might play it twice!



To all of our friends listening in behind bars, we know you made mistakes, we’re sorry you have to be there, but Merry Christmas to all of you, from all of us here, at Theme Time Radio Hour.


Yap, it’s another repeat! Being atheist and a tad cynical, we’re not big fans of the whole Christmas debacle! That’s why roykeanz changed his forename by deed poll to Scrooge! However, there are a lot of things we like in this show!

Lotsa literary stuff, as usual. There’s a reading by Dylan of the 1822 poem “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” by Clement Clarke Moore; as well as a reading of the 1862 poem “Christmas Bells” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Some Charlie Dickens also!

That vile cretin Oliver Cromwell rather strangely gets spoken about. Damned seventeenth century puritans! Almost as bad as all these fucking twenty-first century puritans!

Lotsa guest this week. We get Matt Groening, Steven Wright, Barry White and others.

Typically varied songs across the show, of so many various musical styles – blues, punk, ballad, jazz, rock steady, reggae, Cuban, South African, etc etc etc!

Some great blues tracks here by the likes of Hop Wilson and Sonny Boy Williamson as well as a “non-blues” track from the great bluesman Leadbelly.

Some really good numbers such as that from Gerry Mulligan & Judy Holiday, The Bellrays,Bob Dorough & Miles Davis etc.

I liked the title of this one; I Want A Casting Couch For Christmas!! We guess that Marilyn Monroe wrote the lyrics!

Of course, being Xmas, a few of the songs are turkeys! We’ll let em slide!

Bob is in rare form with the witticisms and the bad jokes! He must’ve had his snout in the Christmas punch bowl (or around the Xmas pipe!) for a few hours before recording!


If you’re spending Christmas in Jamaica, you might see Santa riding a cart and a donkey !

I don’t need to tell you anything more about Sonny Boy Williamson, we’ve played him a lot on TTRH. Here’s Sonny Boy with his hands in his baby’s dresser drawer, and you wouldn’t believe what he’s trying to find!




One of the most popular features on Theme Time Radio Hour is the double entendre – the song that says one thing and maybe means another. This one skates dangerously close to being a single entendre … Kay Martin played in a lot of hotel lounges; our paths crossed more than once when I was on the road. She’s a fine performer, always put on a good show!



By the mid-60’s Nancy Wilson was the second biggest seller on Capital Records. You know who number one was? That’s right, Glen Campbell! ….. Nah, I’m just kidding. It was the Beatles.

The Three Wise Men – Caspar, Balthazar, and Melchior. Three names you don’t hear much any more – well, except for Balthazar!

According to research, the most popular resolution in early Babylonia was to return borrowed farm equipment … I wish Harold would bring back my lawn mower.






Irving Berlin struggled with writing a Christmas song. He stayed up all night writing it. The next day he told his secretary, ‘Grab your pen, and take down this song, I just wrote the best song I’ve ever written. Hell, I just wrote the best song anybody’s ever written.’ That’s pretty confident.



We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, a pocket full of money and a cellar full of beer.

The sands are number’d that make up my life.

– William Shakespeare





Numbers are intellectual witnesses that belong only to mankind.

-Aristotle; Metaphysica (10f-1045a)



Once hanky panky gets into your brain pan, you gotta do something, or it’s going to haunt you.


A witty statesman said, you might prove anything by figures.

-Thomas Carlyle

Forty days and forty nights
Since my baby left this town
Sunshinin’ all day long
But the rain keep comin’ down
She’s my life I need her so
Why she left I just don’t know
Forty days and forty nights
Since I set right down and cried
Keep rainin’ all the time
But the river is runnin’ dry
Lord help me it just ain’t right
I love that girl with all-a my might
Forty days and forty nights
Since my baby broke my heart
Searchin’ for her in a while
Like a blind man in the dark
Love can make a poor man rich
Or break his heart I don’t know which
Forty days and forty nights
Like a ship out on the sea
Prayin’ for her each night
That she would come back-a home to me
Life is love and love is right
I hope she come back home tonight


-Muddy Waters


For those of you who are not musically inclined, this will help you count out the number twelve.



Keep listening Donald and don’t send me any more e-mails.

All you girls think the days are gone
You don’t have to worry, you can have your fun
Take me, baby, for your little boy
Three hundred pounds of heavenly joy
This is it
This is it
Look what you get

You been creeping and hiding behind his back
‘Cause you got you a man that you don’t like
Throw that Jack, baby, outta your mind
Follow me, baby, have a real good time
This is it
This is it
Look what you get

Hoy! Hoy! I’m the boy
Three hundred pounds of heavenly joy
I’m so glad that you understand
Three hundred pounds of muscle and man
This is it
This is it
Look what you get

If the men’s all mad then the women’s glad
If the little kids’ happy then the old folk’s mad
I’m so glad that you understand
Three hundred pounds of muscle and man
This is it
This is it
Look what you get



Here’s Ann Peebles singing a song about herself, 99 LBS. Or as they call it in Hollywood, “chubby”.



25 lbs. of pure cane sugar
In each and every kiss
You wouldn’t know what I’m talking about
If you never had lovin’ like this
I don’t mean to be brash
Just know it’s a natural fact
Good things come in small packages
You’ll have to agree to that

99 lbs. of natural born goodness yo
99 lbs. of soul
Now I’m 99 lbs. of natural goodness yo
99 lbs. of soul

25 lbs. of tenderness in each and every touch
25 lbs. of understanding my man
And I don’t want me to worry too much
24 lbs of something else that I can’t even name
And it all adds up to 99 lbs
All put together in a fine white frame

And I’m 99 lbs of natural born goodness
99 lbs of soul
Let me tell you now
I’m 99 lbs of natural born goodness

-Ann Peebles


I heard of a place where you give them your telephone number and they tell you what you had for lunch today


All you girls think the days are gone
You don’t have to worry, you can have your fun
Take me, baby, for your little boy
Three hundred pounds of heavenly joy
This is it
This is it
Look what you get

You been creeping and hiding behind his back
‘Cause you got you a man that you don’t like
Throw that Jack, baby, outta your mind
Follow me, baby, have a real good time
This is it
This is it
Look what you get

Hoy! Hoy! I’m the boy
Three hundred pounds of heavenly joy
I’m so glad that you understand
Three hundred pounds of muscle and man
This is it
This is it
Look what you get

If the men’s all mad then the women’s glad
If the little kids’ happy then the old folk’s mad
I’m so glad that you understand
Three hundred pounds of muscle and man
This is it
This is it
Look what you get

-Howlin’ Wolf


Merle writes about everything






There’s a song John Lee Hooker never heard.


Dylan’s magnificent and seminal Theme Time Radio Hour series continues into Season 3 with this great show on the theme of Numbers – but this time from 11 up!

Another excellent show. Lot’s of naughty references! The great Tom Waits once again. Some amazing music with a few wonderfully obscure tracks.



Have a happy holiday and we’ll see you on the back side.

Theme Time Radio Hour, your home for Celebrity Dreams, Renown Themes and Superstar Schemes

Glory is like a circle in the water,
Which never ceaseth to enlarge itself,
Till by broad spreading it disperses to naught.

William Shakespeare (1564 – 1616)



He who pursues fame at the risk of losing his self is not a scholar.

Chuang-tzu (369 BC – 286 BC), The Great Supreme


Some of the most famous people around are criminals. Have you thought about a life of crime?

– Bob Dylan



Not everyone loved the Beatles.

– Bob Dylan



Ida Lupino was a femme fatale.

– Bob Dylan

Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think you’d name an airport after a guy who died in a plane crash.

– Bob Dylan


blue Gene baby

skinny white sailor,
the chances were slender
the beauties were brief
shall I mourn you decline
with some thunderbird wine
and a black handkerchief?
I miss your sad Virginia whisper
I miss the voice that called my heart

sweet Gene Vincent
young and old and gone
sweet Gene Vincent

Who, who, who slapped John?

white face, black shirt
white socks, black shoes
black hair, white stet
bled white, died black

sweet Gene Vincent
let the blue roll tonight
at the sock hop ball in the union hall
where the bop is there delight

here come duck-tailed Danny dragging Uncanny Annie
she’s the one with the flying feet
you can break the peace daddy sickle grease
the beat is reet complete
and you jump back honey in the dungarees
tight sweater and a pony tail
will you guess her age when she comes back stage?
the hoodlums bite their nails

black gloves, white frost
black crepe, white lead
white sheet, black knight
jet black, dead white

sweet Gene Vincent
there’s one in every town
and the devil drives ’till the hearse arrives
and you lay that pistol down

sweet Gene Vincent
there’s nowhere left to hide
with lazy skin and ash-tray eyes
a perforated pride

so farewell mademoiselle, knicker-bocker hotel
farewell to money owed
but when your leg still hurts and you need more shirts
you got to get back on the road

-Ian Dury



You may be forgotten by most Ida, but you’re surely not forgotten here.

– Bob Dylan




I’d rather be thin than famous,
I don’t wanta be fat,
And a woman throws me outta bed
Callin me Gordo, & everytime
I bend
to pickup
my suspenders
from the davenport
floor I explode
loud huge grunt-o
and disgust
every one
in the familio

I’d rather be thin than famous
But I’m fat

Paste that in yr. Broadway Show


– Jack Kerouac





That’s a little tip out there for you kids, editing is an important part of songwriting

– Bob Dylan




Sure he says that. But offer him a pot of ale and safety and see what he does.

– Bob Dylan


Say, where did I see this guy?
In red river?
Or a place in the sun?
Maybe the misfits?
Or from here to eternity?

Everybody say, is he all right?
And everybody say, whats he like?
Everybody say, he sure look funny.
Thats…montgomery clift, honey!

New york, new york, new york, 42nd street
Hustlers rustle and pimps pimp the beat
Monty clift is recognized at dawn
He aint got no shoes and his clothes are torn

I see a car smashed at night
Cut the applause and dim the light
Montys face is broken on a wheel
Is he alive? can he still feel?

Nembutol numbs it all
But I prefer alcohol

He said go out and get me my old movie stills
Go out and get me another roll of pills
There I go again shaking, but I aint got the chills

Arrrghhhgorra buh bhuh do arrrrgggghhhhnnnn!!!!

– Strummer / Jones




His epitaph was “I never met a man I didn’t like.” I could have introduced him to a few.


– Bob Dylan


It’s hard to discover a land that has as many people living in it than the land that he left!

– Bob Dylan


Dylan’s magnificent and seminal Theme Time Radio Hour series continues into Season 3 with this wonderful show on the great theme of Famous Folk!

I imagine you could write a very good song about Tom Hanks.

– Bob Dylan


Another fabulous show!

We really loved this one!

A great theme and some fascinating stuff. As well as loadsa corny jokes and witticisms. Starting with a wonderful piss-take on Andy Warhol’s famous quote on fame!

Some great extracts and lots of wonderful movie references this week too.

Jack is back. Yap, Jack Kerouac again, this time with the quirky poem ‘I’d Rather Be Thin Than Famous’!

Loadsa other literary references as usual, too from Willy the Shake to Mark Twain to Emily D to Robby Burns to Sammy Johnson and many more.


There are benefits to being captain.

– Bob Dylan


Wonderful music this week, as usual.

Very eclectic. Pop to ska to blues to country to pop to punk to jazz to soul to reggae … and everything in between!

A few real obscure tracks this week.

We really really liked the inclusion of the wonderful “Sweet Gene Vincent” by Ian Drury & The Blockheads, and the lesser known Clash track “The Right Profile”.

Most of the rest too! Maybe not the Paul Simon track though!

Next Week: Numbers (from 11 on up)



So long Paul. So long Artie.

– Bob Dylan
