Mullard Luminous Picture Valve presents:

2018/01/13

     “As played by the amazing June Barrett with such gleeful, star-quality, damaged ferocity, Icy manages to steal scenes from a memorable gallery of supporting skanks, including thuggish matron Kendal Kaldwell (best known as the ample bikinied lesbo producer coaxing hapless brilliant screenwriter Pia Zadora into a hot tub at the end of Lonely Lady); foul-mouthed shit-starter Aimee Eccles (as Spider), and even raunchy redhead Carole Ita White -who got fired from Laverne & Shirley when all the laughs she was getting as nemesis-nasty Rosie Greenbaum sent Penny Marshall whining to her showrunner brother Garry- but went on to become a grindhouse Bette Midler with other cherished appearances in Chained Heat, Hellhole, The Naked Cage and Savage Streets.”

Here’s the recording* of last night’s (2018-01-12) KNYO and KMEC Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and enjoy.

Or, thanks to Hank Sims of Lost Coast Outpost, you can get it *this other way, from this other place, which you might like better because it offers an instant-play option and isn’t surrounded by confusing flashing ads.

And here are links to a few not necessarily radio-useful but worthwhile items that I set aside for you while putting the show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

/Hey, Boy, Hey Boy,/ from The American Astronaut (2001).

Rather good lip reading of President Biff singing the Star Spangled Banner.

…But blown out of the water by Beyonce’s /La Fway/. Swallow all the Pepsi in your mouth before you play this, because if you don’t it will shoot out of your nose and ruin the keyboard.

(I started to say the president’s National Anthem was like Eddie Murphy singing /Roxanne/ in /Beverly Hills Cop/, but I guess I misremembered that, because it turns out Eddie Murphy actually knew the words to /Roxanne/ and sang it just fine.)

“Ya know, Eddie, ya really shouldn’t be taking shots at my car like that, considering what /you’re/ driving.” Thanks, Jack Morton Productions, Inc. That was a thoroughly creepily enjoyable nine minutes. Would go again.

Reimagining classical paintings for the present day. (This is what all forms of self mutilation –piercing, scarification, tattoos– look like to me. There’s this beautiful creature scribbled all over, and stuck through with nails, and with a pair of panties on her head.)
