To hear this list, click here for a direct link to CJAM archived show.  No waiting!
(Link is live for about 4 to 6 to 8 weeks from original broadcast date.)

Coincidentally, Dave Konstantino, the host and dj of Revolution Rock, played another Willie C. Echols tune on the following Tuesday after I played this one. We agreed that, surely, that is the most radio play the Moon Man has gotten for a very, very, very long time. The Moon Man is back! Right here on CJAM 99.1-fm!
from Moon Man, by Tomi Ungerer, 1966, Harper & Row.


  1. This might have actually been my hundredth show...
    It's either this week or last week...
    Still fun!

  2. Oh yeah...The Skeletones Four, they're alright!

  3. Would it be advisable for you to save this show and play it back at a later date to appreciate your future health?
