AnalogPlanet Radio's WFDU HD2 "Funny Music" Radio Show Streams Now

President's Day seemed like the ideal day for a "funny music" show, so do your patriotic duty and listen and hopefully laugh at it all.

All but one song is vinyl-sourced. That one other track was never available on vinyl and you'll have to guess which, if you care. Otherwise, there are plenty of out of tune instruments, funny voices and sharp song parodies. My favorite is "Godfrey Daniels", Neil Innes' Elton John/Bernie Taupin send-up. Another interesting cut is The Goldwaters' "It's Over Now", which demonstrates that the more things change, the more they remain the same! Have a good laugh. You deserve one!

That Bruce Willis wore on that famous episode of Moonlighting where he claimed to be able to see through, erm, something?

So when will you play "What A Shame Mary Jane"?

That Tom Lehrer was really intense!

I first heard "Living Room Light" on a 2-lp WB/Reprise Loss Leader.
Bring those back, labels! 'Schlagers', 'Whole Burbank Catalog', 'Schlagers' - all terrific.

Randy Newman might be the humblest guy in pop music. He wrote "nice meeting you" on my copy of Little Criminals. I was on the moon for weeks.
