Shyboy Tim & Ledge in Mankato, 2010

I just got off the phone with the Legendary Stardust Cowboy, and he said he had a mild stroke on Saturday night.  He's in the hospital right now, but he'll likely have to move to a rehabilitation facility to build his strength up.  For a few weeks now he's had some numbness on his left side, but it wasn't attributed to a stroke.  Maybe it has always been a stroke, but we'll know more when he hears more from the doctor.

As of now, the Legendary Stardust Cowboy Holiday Card Shower is now a "GET WELL, LEDGE!" card shower!  He could use your support now more than ever, and your cards and letters always help lift his spirits.  Please send your well wishes to:

Norman Carl Odam
Legendary Stardust Cowboy
P.O. Box 730742
San Jose, California  95173

Thanks, Radio Heroes!


Friday, November 29, 2019


It's a holiday tradition around the Shuffle Function Conglomoplex to play a Beatles Fan Club Christmas records every morning through Christmas Eve, and this year we start playing them on Monday, December 16th!  You can hear the band go from fresh faced with new found fame through disillusion and separation in just seven days!  Most of the records are pretty fun, and they're a great way to gear up for the big day.  1966 and 67 are probably the best, but they're all worth hearing.  Here's the schedule for when we'll be airing them:

Monday the 16th - 1963
Tuesday the 17th - 1964
Wednesday the 18th - 1965
Thursday the 19th - 1966
Friday the 20th - 1967
Monday the 23rd - 1968
Tuesday the 24th - 1969


Between 1963 and 1969 The Beatles issued special Christmas message records to their fan club members.  They were issued on Flexi-Discs, which are records pressed on a thin plastic sheet.  Less durable than a traditional vinyl record, but cheap and easy to distribute.  Here's a video by a kind of douchy guy that explains what a Flexi-Disc is:

During the holiday season we like to play all of these records on the morning show, because they're fun curiosities, but also because you can actually hear the band changing through the years.  On the first one they're happy go lucky and excited by all the success, but by 66 and 67 they were at the peak of their studio innovation, and they produced scripted skits with sound effects.  The final two years illustrate the band fracturing, though not overtly.  Each member recorded their own messages with no involvement from the others.  By 1970, the final year that they issued a Christmas record, they just put out an anthology of all the Flexi-Discs on an LP.

The original Flexi-Discs are pretty expensive to find, but you can find the 1970 album at decent prices if you aren't too picky about condition.  There are also quite a few bootlegs out there, and some of them even have outtakes from the Christmas sessions.  Finally, there's good ol' YouTube, which is where we're finding the source material for this post.  Enjoy!



If the Black Friday sales and endless Christmas decorations haven't tipped you off to what time of year it is, then this blog post surely will. IT'S TIME TO WISH THE LEGENDARY STARDUST COWBOY HAPPY HOLIDAYS! The Ledge is family to us, so we ask that you include him in your seasons greetings mail list. He doesn't have any family members close by, so he usually spends his holidays alone. Way back when, in the early days of Shuffle Function, we asked him if he had any plans for the holidays. He told us he'd be doing what he always did - going to a Seven-Eleven to eat a turkey sandwich, drink a slurpee, and then go home. We knew then that we had to do something, and the idea of the card shower was born. This was our chance to let him know he wasn't alone, and that he is loved all over the world.

We'll be giving out his mailing address a bunch on the radio show between now and then, but here it is for your convenience. You can decorate the envelope however you like, but he likes lots of stars and spaceships.  Here is his address:

Norman Carl Odam
Legendary Stardust Cowboy
P.O. Box 730742
San Jose, California

If you're feeling adventurous, include a self addressed stamped envelope. We can't guarantee that you will hear back from The Ledge, but the odds are better if you do. If you do hear back from him, drop us an email and let us know. He has been very inventive with his replies in the past and we love hearing about it.

We can't thank you enough for making our favorite cowboy happy. He means the world to us, and we love to hear the excitement in his voice when he calls us during the morning show to let us know about all the cards he is getting. For his birthday this year he told us he got so many cards that the ladies at the post office couldn't believe it! This made him so happy, and a world with a happy Legendary Stardust Cowboy is a better world to live in. Thank you, Radio Heroes!


There are still copies available of the Legendary Stardust Cowboy Christmas card with his rendition of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas on a gorgeous red flexi.  They're guaranteed to make the folks on your Christmas card list feel loved and super special.  Visit for details and ordering!

This morning we managed to finish off the KMSU Fall Pledge Drive during Polka To You Puke. In fact, we finished it almost an hour early and kept piling on the pledges. By the time we had sung our final "E-I-E-I-E-I-O" we had shot past the goal of $25,000 by almost $1,300! To all of you Radio Heroes who called from the first second the Pledge Drive started last week until today, we thank you. From the bottom of our music geek hearts we thank you. This was an important Pledge Drive because it was the first time we were working with our new station manager Dwayne, and although there was no reason what so ever to be nervous, I admit to I was nervous. But we crushed it with your help! Dwayne now has a Pledge Drive under his belt and a successful one at that. Thanks to all the local businesses who helped us with Matching Grant Challenges and thanks again to our Radio Hero. We truly do have the best listeners in the whole wide world!
