Last week's Torpitidy Festival wasn't especially well received. Or maybe it was, the entropic spiral being so contagious that it immobilized everyone, preventing them from writing in or calling during the show.
Actually, one of the regulars (who shall go nameless because his girlfriend might find out) did call during the show and he definitely sounded sedated. But I don't think it was because of the music.
Anyway, I thought a good way to bounce back from all the slow songs on the last show would be to play lots of bouncy-jolly Frank songs this week. And once you start thinking about it, there's a lot of 'em!
"Wowie Zowie," "Wet T-Shirt Night," "Poofter's Froth Wyoming Plans Ahead," "Rudy Wants To Buy Yez A Drink," "Pygmy Twylyte," "Cletus-Awreetus-Awrightus," "Camarillo Brillo," "Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance," and more that we'll no doubt get into on the show.
And while we're tapping our collective foot to all this bounciness, why not quaff the latest bubbly bev by our Friend in Frank, Tony Magee of Lagunitas Brewing Company. Tony's minions dropped off some Lumpy Gravy Ale at the studio, and somehow it ended up being consumed along with my birthday dinner. Yum.
