Here Serene and Steve run down side 3 of Serene's figurative double album, the 24 Originals Happening Now album, which was modeled after a 1967 TV record album offer called 24 Original Happening Hits. This miracle of science crammed 24 songs onto two sides of vinyl by severely editing and prematurely fading out all your favorites. Musical genres covered on this baker's half dozen include bubblegum, Philly Soul, goodtime music, grunge, countrypolitan and psychedelia. Edited out for your protection, the pair wasted a lot of time looking up minutia on the internet about such subjects as "did Ian Whitcomb write 'This Sporting Life" and "did Tom Waits ever cover a Buck Owens record." Existential questions posed by this podcast include the meaning of "wolf tickets," how did Cole Summers get his first DUI in Marin County and should Ethel Merman's disco album be designated as a weapon of war.
Songs include "Your Heart Ain't Saying," "I've Got So Much To Forgive," "If Tallulah Were Mine," "Tight Wad," "Scranton" and "Yellow Shampoo."
