With all fun and joking in its place, MadMan and the DaffyDoc Do enjoy the flash of firework and the smoke of spent gunpowder cloaking the pastures and hillsides. We eagerly anticipate the days when ground tremblors brings the report of the charges spreading across the open country.
HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY ! We decided to reach into the folk vault and found a classic by Woody Guthrie. And as with most of the tunes we craft, we spun it into our own fusion of Country, Pop, Jazz and Blues and called it Okie Tusk !
Join us tonight as we once again begin to solve the issues surrounding our crowded minds and insulting our collective intellect. We’re so sharp, we didn’t even realize we’d chosen a patriotic song for the Fourth ! 😀
“When I stay out ’til quarter to three, will you lock the door?” We’ve all said it. Sneaked in late, trying not to make any noise and wake anyone. Only to trip over the rug, step on the cat and break a glass all in one fell swoop.
Doc and MadMan continue on their journey through the Great American Songbook with this beetles classic, followed by talk of Alligators in the Arkansas river (IT’S TRUE !), songs of the Equinox and the good folks who keep Roye Park clean, safe and functioning. Hang with us for regular banter on the state of the area, State and country. We be DJAMMin” !
Alligators in Oklahoma. Sounds like a fish story, eh? Nope. They’re here … and in Lake Eufaula, no less ! Holy dinosaur, BatDude ! MadDude and the Batty Doc visit a bit about the newly discovered revenants of another epoch… IOW… them Alligators done made it to the Fly-Over States. They talk more about the shape of things in school systems, more disc golf and MadMan even reveals his own accomplishment. He’s running half marathons now ! Holy Kraut and Hold the relish. He’s hot doggin’. Come to think of it, MadMan’s hosting a disc golf evening at Roye Park in the Big Stig this Saturday at 18:00-ish ! That’s gonna be where NW 9th and NW 10th dead-end on the north side of the Stigler Metro area. If you’ve never been out there, you’re cheating yourself. Kudos go out to Friend of DJMM, Flo Conklin and her group for the diligence in keeping the park in REMARKABLE shape TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER !
Check in with us as we do that cover on Goin’ Down to the Country where the water taste’ like wiiiine ! Go ahead and jump in that water and stay drunk all the time, but BEWARE THE DINOSAURS ! DJAMM IT !
It’s Reunion Days weekend in our neck of the planet, but that doesn’t stop us from cavorting with Hell’s Angels in Monterey, CA ! MadDude and the Doc revisit some old tales of partying with the Hell’s Angels in a California broccoli patch. More talk of disc golf, terrapin races and such high brow pastimes as to make a stuffed shirt positively FLUTTER ! Lend us an ear when we talk about beer, even though neither of us drinks a drop of it. lol We’re trolling up on 200 episodes, dear Devoted and Gentle Listeneers, and we’d like to say we do it ALL for you. But we actually do it for ourselves, so that would be a lie, wouldn’t it??!! Dr. Jeffrey and the Madmann DJAMMIN’ TOOOO-NITE !
“What IS that flower you have on??” How many times have we asked that question, you say? Doc and the MadDude axx it just once more in this tribute to early 1970s country and pop. MadMan shares his rich OKC airshow experience with Doc and our good friends who listen in. An unforgettable performance by the Blue Angels rocked his socks along with Mrs. MadMan and MadMia bookending it.
Doc fires back with a story about an unexpected encounter with two F-14 Tomcats… while sitting in a CLASSROOM ! Old experiences come forward with tales from Airbases Past. Climbing roses, ‘maters ? We’re trying ! Stick around for what Tanya Tucker and Helen Reddy couldn’t accomplish with five million singles as the Daft and Deft Duo manage with their own brand of penache and flatus. Join them on this randy romp through the Oklahoma Hills with another perspective of contemporary culture. Dey be DJammin’ it fa SHO!
The witching hour, you say? P’shaw ! Let that ever-lovin’ light shine on me ! Although this song was about a train, in part, Doc and MadMan re-sect the Creedence classic, only to learn that it’s an OLD, old blues song with roots deep in the sweltering south.
MadMan and the Daft Doc discuss at length the unexpected historic flooding in Eastern Oklahoma. Hundreds of thousands are people are displaced or completely homeless, having lost all they have worked an entire lifetime to attain. Interstate 40 was re-routed through our lovely town because the main artery was closed due to the flooding. Brings back memories of the I-40 bridge collapse due to the barges ramming it in 2002. The roads disintegrated overnight. WOW !
A short tip to the Mudlarks of this year’s Rocklahoma and the trillions of brain cells which must have died painful deaths. What a mess !
Stick around for a great night of occasional banter, a laugh or three and a halfway glance into our own polluted perspectives. WE BE DJAMMIN’ !
Can you hear The Possum’s call to his country lover? Yup, we start tonight with the comparison of a lovely young love interest to cheap rotgut and sodey-pop wine ! MadMan and his non-medical colleague take on the task of examining the body politic of America, solving the problems of mankind in general, and examine the necessity of a good pizza, plenty of Diet Coke and a strong capo. Join us this week for another half hour of country covers and wry perspective of pop culture ! DJAMMin it !
