Hazy Osterwald Jet Set

I found this album as I did most of my records — for a buck at a thrift store down in Phoenix somewhere. But I had not idea how dear it was until recently when one of my fellow deejays at LuxuriaMusic told me he’d give his life for it. Seems its lead off track, “Swinging London,” was included on the second volume of “The In-Kraut,” a popular series of groovy German pop obscurities from the sixties and seventies. Oddly enough, this album doesn’t appear to have found its way onto any of the share sites on my short list. Either nobody else has it, or the blogosphere has issued a collective thumbs down on this album.

VPILFs, Veronica and Vocabulary

It has often been said (OK, never) that politics and bubblegum make strange bedfellows, but junk news junkies who are fans of the musical genre hit the trifecta this week. First, there were those Brady Bunch and Jonas Brothers name droppings in relation to the National Democratic Convention, and today John McCain announced Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his VP running mate. BG&OD listeners might remember Sarah from her work as a sexy steno in show fave Adam Ant's "Goody Two Shoes" video from the early '80s.

Got Plans To Live A Little This Saturday?

If your answer to the above question is "yes," we hope you'll consider checking in with us at 3PM (Pacific Time) for "C'mon Live A Little," the show that crams as much music as it can into a broadcast hour. For the record, that's just just a couple minutes shy of 60 minutes worth, allowing for the occasional commercial or station ID. But what's a couple minutes among friends? What remains promises to be pure ear candy. Once again, host Derrick Bostrom has cobbled together a typically puerile selection of tracks which are sure to get you off your feet -- if not to dance then certainly to do housework.

The Dudsome Brothers

MTV--His opponent may be trying to brand him as a celebrity, but Barack Obama isn't the biggest star in his own daughters' eyes. When Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, took the stage at the Democratic National Convention in Denver on Monday night after their mom Michelle's speech, they had no idea their dad was going to be beamed in live via satellite. When Mrs. Obama told the girls she had a surprise for them, the potential first lady was pretty surprised at the response. "Is it the Jonas Brothers?!" Malia asked.

Had he not passed away earlier this month, Louis Teicher would have turned 84 on Aug. 24. In this Sunday's special Beyondophonic Action Hour, F&T's long-time manager Scott W. Smith will join your host Tothar to celebrate Mr. Teicher's legacy. Via phone, Scott will share swell stories about the twin piano team, including an inside scoop on the duo's dazzlingly visionary and futuristic "prepared piano" recordings.

The Banana Splits in TV comeback!

 
BECKY SIT DOWN!

Children's TV classic The Banana Splits is getting a modern makeover.

Fleegle, Bingo, Drooper and Snorky are to star in new comedy shorts and music videos on the Cartoon Network in the US, and its website, from September.

A series of DVDs, live concerts, music CDs, and online games from the anarchic crew are expected to follow.

"Everything that made The Banana Splits popular in the '60s is back, including the group's terrific humour and music," said Jordan Sollitto, of Warner Bros.
