DJTweeny: A Firesign fan or two at Whole Foods, apparently ;)
Deputy Dang: I'm going to shut up about food.
Deputy Dang: This was my intro to Firesign Theatre, back in the 70s.
Deputy Dang: Sadly, the late 70s. I'm on the trailing edge of Firesign fans.
beet: You started with the best
J. A. M.: I actually thought of FST when I saw the label on the bulk canister that read ‘ Groat Clusters’. You can’t make this stuff up.
DJTweeny: How could you not?
beet: I'll have to go buy a can just out of respect.
DJTweeny: Was it a real thing before FST?
J. A. M.: Hmm... I have a can of field peas...

||||||||| Cease says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, Cease exits at 10:54 PM.
Deputy Dang: I like this song.
DJTweeny: and as Proctor has said, it's a true story
Deputy Dang: Are these collages archived at the internet wayback machine, or whatever it's called? It makes me sad to think it won't be remembered 500 years from now.
DJTweeny: I have them in my private collection, and of course they're all available at www.kurtericson.com/cat
Deputy Dang: I once found a LOT of naughty songs at archive.org, with keywords something like party songs or double entendre. a lot of it was stuff only produced on 78s.
||||||||| Bebop Lobo reminds all you hep cats to listen to Firesign’s NEW 24/7 RADIO STATION Click to listen anytime!"
DJTweeny: You can listen and download them from there :)
DJTweeny: I have a couple of DJ friends who have immense 78 collections they've digitized
Deputy Dang: Are you familiar with the Mad Music Archive? http://madmusic.com/
DJTweeny: never heard of it
Deputy Dang: They have a lot of comedy music. Not focused on FT, of course, but it might be another resting place.
Deputy Dang: They started as an archive of Dr Demento shows (have you heard of those?).
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Deputy Dang: Once upon a time, the shows older than 10 years were available for free download, until attorneys got involved. :-/
Deputy Dang: If you have any interest in them hosting an offsite backup, let me know, or send a note to "Captain Wayne" and tell him Dang sent you.
DJTweeny: I have friends who are very much into Dr. Demento
Deputy Dang: But I'm probably talking well outside of my area of knowledge, so take it for what it's worth.
DJTweeny: One of our DJs is quite familiar, you might like his show
DJTweeny: It's Byron Lee's "Fun Zone", come on after me on Sundays at RFD
DJTweeny: want to check it out
DJTweeny: www.dishnuts.net 7-9pm Central Sundays (I'm on 5-7 Central)
Deputy Dang: Okay, I'll make a note to foll.ow up on Sunday. At this time, Mad Music Archive is somewhat of a concentrator/combinator for comedy music and/or podcasts. I'm setting a reminder now...
DJTweeny: ots of fun and crazy music on his show

Deputy Dang: Thanks--that helps.
DJTweeny: my show is www.kurtericson.com/txroadkill/roadkillshow
DJTweeny: join us, I play Firesign and then take music requests :)
Deputy Dang: Okay. I've been lurking occasionally, but I'll add it to my Sunday go-to-meeting schedule. :-)
DJTweeny: please do :)
Deputy Dang: I have a gut feeling that if we were able to look back in history, and view life from the perspective of the comedians/jesters/minstrels of the day, we might be better at keeping things in perspective.
||||||||| "11:09 PM? I'm late!" exclaims Merlyn, who then rushes out through the french doors and down through the flowerbeds.
Deputy Dang: (And I'm willing to admit that this might mean my perspective is wrong. :-( )

DJTweeny: cheerio...
