PG-009 Musical Impressions

Hello everyone!

Can you believe we’re actually putting out two podcasts within a 4 week period? No shit! Well, part of it is due to the fact that we recorded a longer than usual show on New Year’s Eve. Then it took us forever to get it together. We decided to divide it into two shows. Trouble is, in between all this, there was a parade of death. David Bowie, Lemmy Kilmister, Paul Bley, Paul Kantner, Glenn Frey, et. al.

In this episode we start the discussion of what our most influential musical connections are. In some cases, as with Rita, we look at the perfect albums. Phil talks about experiences with music. Keep in mind, none of this is comprehensive and it is all subject to continued discussion. There is much to discuss. We love music. I think our collection includes over 1000 LPs, well over 1500 CDs, hundreds of cassette tapes, and yes, we still have 45s. Not the largest collection in the world mind you, but we have invested in tunes.

This episode also includes a new Shart Industries commercial. They love us and we love them. They have proven to be very big supporters and sponsors of the Prehensile and Gretel Show.

One thing Phil wants to correct: he makes reference to WZMF radio, back in the 60s and 70s; it was indeed out of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, not Milwaukee, as Phil states on this episode.

At any rate, we hope, as always, that you enjoy this episode and if you have any comments or suggestions, please send them to comments at prehensileandgretel.com

We might have a contest coming up soon!

Thanks to all of you who’ve been listening. More good stuff coming!

Special thanks to our secretary Blanche Nesbitt and also to Barry Flavonoid, who plays the role of our loyal Schnauzer.

  1. Rita Reebius

    I feel it is my duty to report that the Reebius household also enjoys one 8 track tape. It is The Captain and Tennille, “Love Will Keep Us Together”, purchased on a lark by me (Rita) at a thrift store. It is prominently displayed in our home. I believe their music is the reason punk happened. You cannot force thinking young people to listen to that level of insipidness and not expect a backlash. But they *could* sing.
