  1. A little belated, but just saw your thread and stopped by to wish congrats! Here is a little jingle that someone shared with me on my last B-day. Hope you appreciate it as much as I did on yours! The happy birthday song/ by Arrogant Worms https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACUjMNDSrgY
  2. Thanks Dargo, Yeah, I started it on a whim before I realized that there already were some very good threads with similar tastes and buku content on these boards. So I tried to make it a little different, but my time quickly grew short, along with the thread. BTW , I owned this very same album (linked by darkblue) when I was a kid and Marty's "El Paso" was endemic on the radio. I played that song so often that I ended up scratching the LP . at the end of the song where he sings "one fatal kiss and Felina good-bye..." so it went "one fatal......skeeeRatchhh.... goodbye." I memori

  4. Wishing All a Happy Saint Patrick's Day! It was Saint Patrick's Day in 1985 or '86. After almost a year in the bush I was in Anchorage when a friend asked me if I liked Celtic music. I gave it a quick thought and told her that I'd been fond of the Irish Rovers since I was a wee lad. She then invited me to attend a concert with her that evening being held on the University of Alaska campus sponsored by the local chapter of the Irish Claddagh Society. She was sure that I would enjoy myself... and it was there that I was first introduced to the duo of Tommy Makem & Liam Clancy. T
  5. Hi Lawrence, Yes, but it won't be a regular thing. Last Fall I had an opportunity that I couldn't refuse, to get remotely off grid for at least six months. My contract was set to expire but the Pandemic had other plans for me. Now I can't leave even if I wanted to, so I'll be where I am for who knows how long. Internet access is distant and limited, so I decided I should make the most of it while I can. I have thought about you guys a lot, and wish you all well. I think the TCM crowd by nature is perhaps better suited to hunker down, so long as they have access to their favorite

  7. Yeah me too, I'd seen it a few times before, but just had a hankering to rewatch. But that was the last WATCH TCM ON DEMAND movie that I have been able to see that I have wanted to see since Thursday night. TCM went kaplop (for me & Win 7 Pro & Firefox) last Tues-Wed., then everything worked again for Thurs (Valentines Day), and Friday practically eveything refused to load again (just like in your OP). All except 16 movies which I had already seen numerous times, and half of those (that haven't yet expired) have also stopped loading now. Nothing "new" added since last Friday on will
  8. Great remembrance story Swithin. And the narration and vintage photos reminded me of something right out of a PBS documentary. That song is a classic and I've never heard it sung just like this before. Very sweet, almost like an homage to a bygone era. Thank you, and please share again.
  9. Thanks again Mike, I'm all for Open Source Everything (Down with DRM, Up with Open Source). Yes, even good ole Firefox uses some of the "good" stuff from Google... I'll take the good stuff, I just don't want to be strapped by their lousy telemetry spyware anymore than Microsoft's. Firefox and Linux has stripped that crap out. I think I told you about back when I still occasionally used Google Chrome for troubleshooting. What happened is Googles persistent spyware wouldn't stay contained in the Google browser, it escaped and infected every other browser on my PC. It was a real hassle
  10. Andy Williams and Roger Miller - (In The Summertime) You Don't Want My Love (1960) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRuzBp7eIP8 Thanks Princess, I remember the song, but not much about the history around it, so I just checked it out. In 1960 the song, written & performed by Roger Miller, was also recorded by Andy Williams, and The Chordettes, Skeeter Davis, and Teresa Brewer in 1961. But the lasting impact was not held by either Miller, nor any of the female artists, but as you said it was good old Andy ("Moon River") Williams. BTW, I fell in love with

  12. Okay, just so things don't get too stale, I'll mix them up a bit. YES! WE HAVE NO STEVE BANNON! ?????? - A Randy Rainbow Song Parody
  13. Ha ha, I remember that one, thank you so much. A year or so later these songs came out and for some reason I kinda have them all jumbled together with the Rooftop Singers (in an appealing way). They were so catchy that I even memorized the lyrics to King of the Road and Flowers On the Wall. Roger Miller - King of the Road - With Lyrics! (1965) Roger Miller "Dang Me" (1964) Roger Miller - England Swings (1965) The Statler Brothers - Flowers On The Wall 1966 (Country Music Greats) Daddy Sang Bass By
  14. Too funny Nipper, These Perry Como songs were often on the radio when I was a kid. (I ended up memorizing the lyrics of the last two). Perry Como - Catch a Falling Star (Audio) Perry Como - And I Love You So (Lyrics) Perry Como "It's Impossible"
