Sounds of the Hall in roughly 33 1/3 minutes!

Let’s try this again, following the technical difficulties that caused last night’s Thrifty posting to fade into the cloud

Greetings, seekers of the weird, the rare, the unusual, and the literally near-worthless! I come to you again in Saturday Night Shut-In form, bringing a wide variety of tunes culled from the thrift stores, yard sales, and garbage cans of our proud nation’s capitol.

  1. Our apologies for the glitch in the original posting of HVB’s latest Thrifty Music edition of Saturday Night Shut-In. Here it is again, in all it’s beat-to-hell glory!

  3. HVB, I don’t have time to get down to specifics yet, but I finally got to listen to this whole episode. GREAT work. As always you are a tribute to what this place can be.

    Although the one unexpectedly downbeat song did bring me down, man, your rip captured some of the warmest scratches known to the digital age.

    As always, I encourage others to step up to the mic!

  4. A really quality, wonderful show, HVB.

    Nice show, some excellent obscurities.

    Thank you, one and all. I have to admit, this particular collection set a high bar for me. Still, one must always march into any headwind with vigor and determination. I shall endeavor to meet or exceed my own high standards in future installations of this series.

    The “Can You Waddle?” song would have been much more brilliant if they had found a word that rhymes with waddle.

    I’m not ashamed to admit that I thought Love-itis was originally penned by the J.Geils Band.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the show.

      The real lost opportunity in that Waddle song is the lyric in the bridge. You just *know* that it was originally written thusly:

      Nothing looks so good as a good-lookin’ girl doin’ the waddle

      She looks so fine with her big behind doin’ the waddle… it drives me out of my mind!

      … but instead, it got bowdlerized to:

      She looks so fine in her big boss line doin’ the waddle… it drives me out of my mind!

      … which is not only less truthful, less hit-worthy, and generally less cool — it doesn’t make any sense! Bad decision, Mr. Producer-guy! Let the Spartans be the Spartans!
