Coming up Monday, Uncle Warren's Attic #76 will take us back 90 years, 70 years, 25 years and five minutes ago. But there's a weekend ahead, and here's a fine way to pass at least five hours while you're waiting for the new show. Sure, you could spend that time by going to see The Avengers twice, but this is free! free! free!
If you didn't realize I had settled back in the Attic again, you can catch up with the rest of us by clicking on these links to listen to/download the last three months of excitement (not counting the two weeks of reruns) ...
Uncle Warren's Attic #66 - re-establishing the series with the likes of The Crows, Jimmy Davis, John Cale and Sunny Gale.
Uncle Warren's Attic #67 - Awesome old movie music with Beverly White, Louis Jordan and the King Cole Trio, plus a segment of the immortal "Flick's Tongue" narration by Jean Shepherd.
Uncle Warren's Attic #68 - The original Betty Boop and famous songs recorded by other artists before the big hit versions. Seriously, "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)" by Jerry Lee Lewis?!
Uncle Warren's Attic #69 - Excerpts from the 1912 presidential campaign, World War I music, and translating the dialogue from Star Wars I. To be honest, this one looked better on paper.
Uncle Warren's Attic #70 - St. Patrick's Day the way it may have sounded on the Victrola.
Uncle Warren's Attic #71 - The premieres of "This Terrifying Report" and "Poetry Corner," plus a lot of songs with food themes, like "Pumpernickel," "Hotta Chocolotta" and "Sweet Potato Piper."
Uncle Warren's Attic #72 - The Academy Awards for 1942-43, "Barney Google" and "16 Old Ladies Locked in the Lavatory." What's not to love? Here's looking at you, kid.
Uncle Warren's Attic #73 - An especially swingin' episode with Scat Man Crothers, Glenn Miller, Raymond Scott and some other happy stuff.
Uncle Warren's Attic #74 - A fun hodgepodge from the late 1950s and early '60s, including the immortal "Manhattan Spiritual" and a followup to "Hey Paula."
Uncle Warren's Attic #75 - The story of meeting Barry McGuire and how it inspired me to write and record an album and then write a book.
