SHUFFLE FUNCTION TURNS 7! JUNE 5th @ 6pm!

Hey Shufflefunctioneers,

Shy Boy Tim and I will be celebrating Shuffle Function's 7th Year Anniversary this June 5th at 6 p.m. I can't believe how time flies by on the radio..................it seems like just yesterday that I was saying my first word on the air, "ummmmmm". In the past we have used our anniversary show to highlight some of our favorite musicians - the bands or artists that motivated and influenced us over the years and were an inspiration for what we wanted (and want) Shuffle Function to be. This year is no different, as we will be celebrating the music of The Fleshtones and sharing our interview with Peter Zaremba.



This is one of the hardest working bands around, still hell bent on having fun and making their fans shake their money makers on the dance floor. They got their start in the late 70's in New York City and have been cutting albums and touring the world ever since. Anyone who grew up watching MTV, back in the day when they actually played music videos, may remember Peter Zaremba as the host of The Cutting Edge. This was a show that introduced me to many of the bands that I still love to this day. There is a new documentary on The Fleshtones being made, and the trailer pretty much sums up everything I could possibly say about this great band. You can watch it here: www.coldcutsproductions.com/fleshtones/trailer.html

So mark your calenders for June 5th at 6 p.m., grab your dancing shoes, and help us celebrate Shuffle Function's 7th Anniversary with the music of The Fleshtones and our interview with Peter Zaremba. I can't leave you without adding some more eye candy of this amazing band!!

This is perhaps as close as The Fleshtones have come to a hit, as introduced by some 8th grader for their school music video show!!



alright - I'll stop after this!!

EVEN COWBOYS GET THE BLUES


Hey Shuffle Functioneers,

I just got off the phone with the Legendary Stardust Cowboy, and he is feeling a little down in the dumps. He just had some extensive dental work done, leaving him strapped for cash and exhausted, and I don't need to tell you about the economic recession we've all been experiencing. It is taking it's toll on this Cowboy's spirits, and we need to help buck him up a bit. If you have a chance, grab a card or write him a letter. The Legendary Stardust Cowboy loves fan mail. He will still talk to us about all of teh Christmas cards or birthday cards he has received from Minnesota fans - in fact his drummer even made a scrapbook of them for The Ledge!!!

His mailing address is:

Norman Odam
The Legendary Stardust Cowboy
P.O. Box 730742
San Jose, CA 95173

thanks everyone - have a safe Memorial Day, and we will see you at the Shuffle Function Grind Fu Cinema this Saturday!!!

HAPPY INDIANA JONES DAY!

The nearly 20 year wait is finally over! The new Indiana Jones movie is in theaters TODAY and the gang at Shuffle Function is going to take it all in on opening night. Anticipation is high, and there's plenty of anxiety over whether or not it will dissappoint, but we're all looking forward to what the film holds in store for us.

Here's a cool Indy treat for you: The first ten minutes of the legendary shot-for-shot remake of Raiders Of The Lost Ark! Over the course of 6 years during the 80s a bunch of kids remade the film direct to video. It was shot out of sequence, they are noticeably older in parts, and one of the cast members even had his very first kiss during filming! It has been spoken of and rarely seen for years, and bootlegs DVDs have been evasive.

Well, thank goodness for the YouTubes and the InterWeb! HERE'S THE FIRST TEN MINUTES and it is amazing! These kids were 12 years old when they started this, and the creativity they show in recreating the film is remarkable. Enjoy!

A BUSY WEEK FOR SHUFFLE FUNCTION

Hey Radio fans,

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up about a couple of exciting items on Shuffle Function's morning show agenda this week.

On Thursday the new Indiana Jones movie opens. I have been in love with Harrison Ford since I saw him as Han Solo when I was ten years old. As of late it has been a bumpy ride (I don't think that his last 5 - no I just checked IMDB, his last 10 movies have been even remotely good), but I hope that The Crystal Skull will return that pupply love feeling. I plan on spinning some appropriate tunes for the day, wearing my Indy hat, and practicing my whip skills during Thursday morning's show, so be sure to tune in. Here is a classic clip from Raiders Of The Lost Ark, performed entirely by action figures!!!



On Saturday Bob Dylan celebrates his 67th birthday but we are marking the occasion with two hours of Bob's music on Friday, from 6 to 8 a.m. Shyboy Tim is loaded for bear when it comes to his Dylan collection, so if there is something you would like to hear from this Minnesota boy made good, please don't hesitate to request it. Drop us an email at shufflefunction@hotmail.com
I have a little video clip to get you in the mood, history in the making really. A word of warning - Dylan drops the f bomb so look away kids!!




Thanks for listening!!

THEY SAY YOUR MEMORY IS THE FIRST THING TO GO

I have the best excuse for being forgetful now - I am 40. On this morning's show I promised to enter last weeks playlist into the blog today, but I then promptly forgot to grab it before leaving. So I will try my best tomorrow.

While nosing around on the on-lines today I saw a headline stating that Tom Waits was going on tour. I immediately clicked on the dates to see if Minnesota was on the list, and sadly we are not. It is a tour of the Southwest this time out.

Waits announced the tour, and the inspiration for the "GLITTER AND DOOM" tour in a press conference this morning. It is just as odd and quirky as you'd hope, but watch for yourself below.




Someday he will come back to Minnesota, someday. Scarlett Johansson's Tom Waits cover album is due out soon. Having heard the first single, I honestly don't know whether to laugh or cry. I really don't want to pass judgement until I hear the full album, but Scarlett is not such a STRONG SINGER. There isn't a video for her cover of Wait's 'Falling Down' as of yet, but here is a clip of the song paired up with scenes from "Lost In Translation".



What do you think?
