This week we're talking about work. We're talkin' about golden parachutes, poison pills, golden handshakes. We're talking about workin' like a dog, work around the clock, workin' 9 to 5; talking about all the workin' stiffs who're workin' for a livin', who live to work, labor intensive, doin' odd jobs, married to their job, them employee of the month hard at work.

You can't say enough about Merle Haggard.

I had a boss so mean once, his time clock punched me.

I'm gonna get outta here and see if I can beat the traffic. You know what it's like when everybody gets off work.

Selected BobTalk

We’re gonna be talking about next to nothing, for nothing, nothing doing and all or nothing. We’re gonna be talking about nothing to write home about and nothing to shout about. Nothing to sneeze at, good-for-nothings, and nothing going for ya. Much ado about nothing, next to nothing, thinking nothing of it, and having nothing to do with ya.

Always enjoy a song with a story attached. It’s like getting a two for one, and he makes a good point. Mind your own business! You don’t have to get involved; you don’t know that whole story. Before you go jumping in, take a moment. Look at the situation. Ask yourself: Will I really be making this better? I guarantee ya, 9 times outta 10, the answer is nooooo. (about It’s Nothing To Me)

Boy, what can you say about that? Just fabulous. (about No Love, No Nothin’)

With a song this good, you only need one (about Nothing Takes the Place of You)

Huh-ha, that sounded like me playing harmonica. Short and sweet with a steady beat. (about You Ain’t Nothin’ But Fine)

Selected BobTalk

I think we all know there’s only one way to begin.

Ya know when I heard Herman’s Hermits sing it I thought it was just about having a piece of cake, or ridin’ on a Ferris wheel. But when I hear Earl-Jean sing it, I know exACTly what she’s talkin’ about!

Ya know, nobody sings like that anymore. He makes it sound effortless, no matter how difficult it really is. I like the elegance of a guy like Clyde McPhatter; it’s like watching Fred Astaire.

You can just tell he’s one of those guys raised on Western swing, looking forward to rockabilly. I sure would like to know more about him; if ya know anything, give us a call here at the station. (about Jimmy Ballard)

You know, sometimes I get jealous of you people listening. Some of you are hearing these songs for the first time, and that must be exciting. I remember what it was like when I first heard ‘em, and I tell ya even after all these years it’s still an amazing record – but that first rush of hearin’ it…wow! (about Somethin’ Else)

Here’s The Silver Fox, back when he still had a little bit of black in his hair. (about Charlie Rich)

A beautiful song of quiet despair…a lot of times the arranger gets ignored, but on a record like this you can’t imagine it without his touch. (about Something Cool)

Next up, part two of a two part record. Side one is kind of a straight read. Part two – it’s wild! Not surprisingly, the guy performing it is wild too. (There’s Something on Your Mind Pt. 2)

Selected BobTalk

I can’t imagine Jimi Hendrix writing a song called ‘Bipolar Disorder.’

A lot of people are unfamiliar with the way that Annie and other vocal lead singers would take jazz solos and put words to them; well this is one of the most famous ones.

Walter basically reinvented the harmonica. When he was growing up, he was obsessed with the Louis Jordan records, and would practice playing Louis’ saxophone solos on his harmonica.

The Thin Man from West Plains (about Porter Wagoner)

Here’s a wild record with a surprising person at the helm. (about It’s Fun To Be Living In The Crazy House)

Here’s a man that some call the William Faulkner of jazz. Now I’ve got to tell you, I’ve heard this guy play since the 60s, and I’ve never heard anybody call him the William Faulkner of jazz. But there it is in a book. I mean, somebody just wrote that; I can’t imagine anyone calling him the William Faulkner of jazz! I mean that would be like calling Garnet Mimms the Gabriel Garcia Marquez of soul music. It’s just not done. I’m getting excited over nothin’, let me just play the record. By the way, I consider William Faulkner to be the Mose Allison of literature. Here they are, together again, Mose Allison and William Faulkner, singing the Percy Mayfield song ‘Lost Mind.’

The third in our trilogy of demented country songs (about Psycho)

Few things go together as well as country & western music and crazy people.

Selected BobTalk

We’re gonna be looking at officers and fuzz, bulls and coppers, private eyes, private investigators, police and private detectives, deputies and constables, lawmen, marshals, and meter maids, the law, and the man. But of course that’s just one side of the law. We’re also gonna turn the Theme Time spotlight on bandits and buccaneers, burglars and cheats, conmen and crooks, looters and marauders, something and pickpockets, stickup men, swindlers, thieves, thugs, gangsters, gunmen and hijackers. Bruisers and Godfathers, Mafioso and mobsters. I’m sure we have a lot of listeners on both sides-

Nat Cole Trio – Call The Police “What made their sound so swingin’ is that they didn’t use a drummer and the rhythmic pulse was carried by that big bass fiddle.”

The forgotten man of the Bakersfield sound (about Red Simpson)

Using bad as a bit of braggadocio and not casting any aspersions on his abilities. (about Bad Detective)

A man who never forgot where he came from; he’s the real deal. (about Merle Haggard)

This is Theme Time Radio Hour, your police headquarters for illicit themes, illegal schemes, and hijacked dreams.

This week we’re gonna indulge our sweet tooth, go into sugar shock, look at some eye candy, meet back at the sugar shack, take some candy from a baby, give some sweets to my sweet, get sweet and low-down, and maybe even revisit the sweet bird of youth.

Listen to this and you think it’s a traditional song but it’s not – Elizabeth wrote it-

I don’t know anything about Ray Batts except for this song…another mystery man, another great record-

You play me a Nancy Sinatra record, and I’ll play you a cover of it by a band from Singapore.

Listen the drums on this record, they’re quite good. You owe me five bucks, Jim. (about So Like Candy)

Boy, when was the last time a record hit the charts with accordion or a guitar like that?! Been much too long. It’s not that I like old music, it’s just that I’m not hearing anything like that from out in left field nowadays. (about Sugar Bee)

Here’s a guy who could talk about Trotsky as well as about the Delta Blues. He could tell you about politics and literature, could identify all the French symbolist poets, and play blues and ragtime on the guitar. I could talk about Dave Van Ronk for a long time. He could totally electrify a coffee house and you could never tell when he was drawing to an inside strength. It was a privilege to know him; he was a singular individual, and hearing just one song will only give you a clue.

Heh heh heh…Welcome to the Underground Garage. I’m Little Steven.

People think of him as just a jolly fat man from New Orleans, but they don’t realize what a bluesy piano player he is. Here he is with a song that’ll help you get down to the real nitty-gritty. (about Fats Domino)

He’s flamboyant and an artist you can’t ignore. (about Guitar Slim)

Everybody always thinks of rockabilly as being a guitar-based music, but you can’t imagine that record without Jerry Lee Lewis pumpin’ the piano all over it. During the 60’s and the 70’s the guitar hero became popular, but for my money give me that pumpin’ piano. The only reason the guitar became so popular is because you could wear it around your neck and stand in the middle of the stage. The poor guy playin’ the piano was stuck in one spot and unless you were Little Richard or Jerry Lee Lewis you were relegated to the background. I feel we lost something when it became all guitars and no piano. Another thing that happened is that somewhere along the line people seemed to think the solo was more important than the song. On some of my favorite blues records there isn’t even a solo at all. The guitar playing is mostly call and response to the vocals. If you’re lucky maybe there’s a one chorus guitar solo. It’s not about the length of the solo, it’s the feel, and a lot of those blues records had more feel than you could ever put in a twenty minute solo.

Here’s another one of those records that I don’t know anything about. There was more than one artist named Bobby Moore, and the records I have don’t all sound like the same guy.

Before they started making operas, The Who were one of the great singles bands of the 60’s.

Selected BobTalk

We’re gonna take a few ticks of the clock to look at heart and hearth. We’ll look at family trees, family dinners, family planning, and family jewels. There’ll be Dutch uncles, grandfather clocks, kissing cousins, sons of a gun, and maybe a couple of SOBs. It’s all in the family. Let’s get it goin.

He was a brilliant singer and one of the best guitarists to come out of Jamaica…he was a proselytizer of the healing powers of marijuana…he was kinda like the Dr. Phil of ganja. (about Peter Tosh)

You know, people used to go into the studio when they had a song or two, when they had something to say. Nowadays, people just go into the studio ‘cause they got time to kill. They sit around, they order sushi, get some Starbucks, wait for inspiration to hit, and the records sound like that. There’s some records that take two years to make and you listen to ‘em, and there’s nothin’ on ‘em! This record, I guarantee you, took less than two hours to make, and wasn’t even the A side. You be the judge. What would you rather listen to? A whole record about nothin’ or a 45 called Little Sister?”

It’s kind of ironic: we’re doing our family show, and this is probably the least family-oriented song we’ve ever played. It is not for the pusillanimous listener, so if you’re listening with young children please send them out of the room for a few minutes. Unless you’re listening in the car. In that case turn the radio down for a while. (about Uncle Bud)

As good as that record sounds, you gotta see what they look like! That, my friends, is what I call showmanship. (about The Wild Tchoupitoulas)

The question I have is, ‘Bring WHAT on home to grandma?

A weary skeptical record, with a darkness born of drug use. This song was all over the radio and its power could not be denied. (about Family Affair)

Selected BobTalk

I like to think of myself as a glass half full kinda guy. I don’t like to think about all the people that drowned in the great flood, I like to think about all the animals Noah saved. So this week we’re gonna climb aboard Noah’s Ark and take a look around. It’s gonna be a marvelous musical menagerie as we listen to songs about, for and by the many members of the animal kingdom. Come on! Watch where you step.

D. Bartholomew has a writing credit on this song, but I think the lyrics go back a lot further. I have a postcard with a poem on it from at least the 30’s; but Dave did put a distinctive, driving guitar beat behind it. Anything that gets this type of thought across, I’m all in favor of…A tale of morality and monkey business.

It’s not totally politically correct but we must remember it was a different time. (about Hold That Critter Down).

It sounds like she’s singing it to the man she loves but no, she’s singin’ to an elephant! (about Bonnie Raitt)

Orginially the song was a satire. Queen Elizabeth had a habit of referring to her ministers with animal nicknames. She called Sir Walter Raleigh her fish. The French Ambassador Simier was her ape. And the Duc d’Alencon was her frog. So this song wasn’t just about marriage in the barnyard, but it was a scathing political satire. I didn’t get that the first time I heard it.

One of the few R & B records I know that has as steel guitar solo in it. (about Barnyard Boogie)

Ya know, like when you take a gal out to dinner and then at the end of the night she gives you a little peck on the cheek, and then she calls me to come over? You know what you were doing buddy? You were fattening frogs for snakes!

Selected BobTalk

Don’t be a jackass! We’re gonna go ape. Take the bull by the horns. Play a little cat and mouse. Shoot some fish in a barrel. And go hog-wild. ‘Cause I’m crazy like a fox, proud as a peacock. So unless you’re ugly as a toad I’m ready to talk turkey. There’ll be no weaseling out as we have as much fun as a barrel of monkeys.

One of my three favorite songs about meese. (about There’s a Moose on the Loose).

Telling us to feed our heads. That’s not a direct quotation from the dormouse, by the way. (about The Jefferson Airplane)

Here’s another strong-willed woman, and I mean that in the best possible way… (Coyotes are) a very vocal animal… use short barks to warn of danger…whine and whimper when they are establishing bonds. They produce high pitched barks to summon puppies and sometimes, late at night when they’re all relaxing, they sing Joni Mitchell songs.

I think that might have been produced by the Chinese-Jamaican producer, Leslie Kong. Chinese-Jamaican…that’d be a good kinda food. Get myself some General Tso’s Jerk Chicken! (about Monkey Man)

This is Theme Time Radio Hour, your home for barking dreams, roaring themes, and slithering schemes. Climb aboard Noah’s Ark with us. It’s a musical menagerie, animalistically speaking.

Selected BobTalk

Here’s a guy as far away from the prodigal son as you can imagine. (about Steve Earle)

He sings this song, he pounds the piano. He says he wrote it and that’s good enough for me.” (about Jerry Lee Lewis)

A traditional song, but in the hands of someone like Van Morrison you can see how hard it is to separate the performer from the performance. It’s like a great jazz musician bringing a new interpretation to a song you’ve heard dozens of times.

Born with the name Mary Isabel Catherine Bernadette O’Brien – a lovely Jewish name.” (about Dusty Springfield)

Let’s wander over to the succulent fruit department…ya know I better get out of the peach orchard before I get myself in trouble.” (about Somebody’s In My Orchard)

 “He had a loud guitar and a swingin’ band…you hear this (trombone) solo and you can’t believe that Al (Grey) played with Duke Ellington’s band…it’s pure gutbucket!...We don’t play a lot of instrumentals all the way through, but that one was so swingin’ we had to play the whole thing. (about Clarence Gatemouth Brown

We don’t often play two versions of one song, but these two are so different, and Wanda’s rocks so hard, that we got to play both of them. (about Fujiyama Mama)

The sweet, gentle sounds of Mississippi John Hurt. You can hear elements of the songster tradition, the music that came before the blues, carrying elements of minstrel songs and other native American forms.

In a crypt near his birthplace, buried along with him, were his Gibson Les Paul guitar, a ring he wore every day that was given to him by Prince Asfaw Wossen of Ethiopia, a marijuana bud, a soccer ball, and a bible. His needs were simple.” (about Bob Marley)

Known as Betty Bebop, but she hated that name. She thought that bebop was limited and she wanted to do more, and she did. (about Betty Carter)

Selected BobTalk

It's one thing to make an entrance, it's another thing entirely to get out alive.  So for the next hour we'll be checking all the exits, finding our way outta here…and this show might run a little long this week, but that's OK.  What are they gonna do, fire me?

Great loose sounding record.  Really sounds like he's in it.  You know what drives me crazy?  I see all these pictures of rock bands in the studio, and they're very careful to make sure you can see the bottle of whiskey they have with them.  They want you to know they're on the edge.  You listen to their records, they don't sound like that.  What's up with that?  This guy, Peppermint Harris, probably just had a couple nips before he went into the studio and he sounds lose as a goose.

And it has been good to know you this year and here we are at the end of another season. May you have warm words on a cool evening, a full moon of a dark night, and a smooth road all the way to your door. I'm going to head on down to Elmo's Lounge.  We’re having our wrap party there.  Sampson's Diner is catering.  If you happen to be driving by and the light is still on, come in and have a drink. It'd be good to see ya.  In the mean time, see ya later, so long, and don't ever forget, every goodbye is the birth of a memory.
