Doug Clark & His Hot Nuts - Rush Week 1964

On: Friday, November 25, 2011

Doug Clark
Birth name
North Carolina
~1936 - Sep 16 2002 age 66
Doug Clark and the Hot Nuts, also known as Doug Clark and his Hot Nuts, The Hot Nuts and, since the death of Doug Clark in 2002, Doug Clark's Hot Nuts, is a rhythm and blues, rock and novelty band that has played party and club dates for more than fifty years. Starting in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, they became famous on the college circuit in the southeastern United States in the early 1960s for their risqué song lyrics and jokes, and for allegedly performing in various states of undress. Their signature song was Hot Nuts. Other songs that they were known by included: My Ding-a-Ling, Big Jugs (based on Big Bad John), He's Got the Whole World by the Balls, Baby Let Me Bang Your Box, The Bearded Clam (is a delicacy that won't be found in the deep blue sea), Gay Caballero and Two Old Maids. It has been said that the Hot Nuts were the inspiration for the Otis Day and the Knights group in the movie Animal House. Their first album had a picture of the band on the cover, with Doug Clark "flipping the bird" to the audience. All of the Hot Nuts albums were on the "Gross" label, a subsidiary of Jubilee Records created solely for the band. Even though Jubilee published a line of "party" records with risqué material, the Jubilee name did not appear anywhere on the Gross albums. Doug Clark and the Hot Nuts influenced contemporary artists such as Too Short and Ol' Dirty Bastard. ~wikipedia
Band members on the original Gross album Nuts to You were Doug Clark (drums), June Bug (trumpet), "Big" John Clark [Doug's brother] (saxophone), William "Chicken" Little (guitar) and Prince Taylor (vocals). Later, various other musicians were in and out of the group, which later was up to nine, including a female vocalist named "Tootsie." The group was active into the 2000s, but Doug Clark died on September 16, 2002. His son, Doug, has reportedly joined the band, who will henceforth perform as "Doug Clark's Hot Nuts." ~bsnpubs

Transfer Your Vinyl LPs, Cassettes To MP3

On: Thursday, November 24, 2011

Interested in transferring your own cassettes and/or vinyl albums to your PC? Here's what I've been using lately:

If you already have a turntable or cassette deck:
The whole package
Close-up of the included cable
Available now from Sears on sale at this link for $22.99 from $29.99 USD. This version uses a mini-jack (the size of a stereo headphone jack) plugging into your cassette deck or turntable amplifier and a USB plug on the other end into your PC. The software included is Audacity, popular and widely used free audio software. Audacity will "record" your sounds to MP3 format and clean the sound, too, as an option.  Flapjack easy.
If your amplifier output is not mini-jack, there may be other versions/cables available and I know the local Radio Shack have many mini-jack/audio converter plugs that are dirt cheap. 

~~~~~~ OR ~~~~~~~

You can buy a turntable with USB output. This runs about $139.95 on the 'net. Check this link for more information
~~~~~~ OR ~~~~~~~

You can buy a turntable with a CD burner built in on this link, $250 and up.

Brenner & Blitzer - Have A Jewish Christmas? 1967

Raymond Brenner
aka Ray Brenner
Official Site

aka Barry E. Blitzer
New York City, New York, USA
Apr 21 1929 - Jan 27 2010 age 80
Official Site
Ray Brenner and Barry E. Blitzer are one of television's most active comedy writing teams.  Ray, a native Californian, worked on such shows as The Real McCoys and Dinah Shore; Barry, a displaced New Yorker, achieved recognition as a writer on the Sergeant Bilko Show, for which he was awarded an Emmy.  The boys first collaborated on McHale's Navy and subsequently scripted for such shows as Donna Reed, Andy Griffith and Get Smart.  They're currently in their second season as staffers for Gomer Pyle and are also contributing to the Carol Burnett Show.

Lennie Weinrib has become one of the busiest “voices” in radio and television.  You hear him regularly on commercials for Avis, Hunts Tomato Sauce, G.E., Pepsodent and countless others.  In addition to his practically full-time voicing schedule, Lennie is a director, writer, actor, comedian and singer—and is currently active in all these fields.  He was the comedy star of the famous Billy Barnes Review which had long runs in Los Angeles and New York, and was recently featured in such TV shows as The Man From UNCLE, Laredo, Jericho and others.  Lennie narrates all the tracks on this album.

Benny Rubin could easily qualify for the title of “Mr. Show Biz.”  In his more than fifty years as a performer he's played everything from Mississippi Riverboats to Burlesque to Vaudeville where he headlined at the Palace Theater.  A master dialectician, Benny has appeared in numerous movies as well as being a near-regular on the Jack Benny television show.  He recently finished a picture with Don Knotts and can be seen in guest appearances on the Joey Bishop Show.

Naomi Lewis is one of radio and television's best known voice specialists.  Early in her career, she headed her own TV series, NBC's famous “Rootie Kazootie Show” which ran daily for over thirteen hundred performances.  Since then she has been lending her comedic talents to commercials including those produced by the inimitable Stan Freberg.

Christine Nelson is regarded as one of the most versatile comediennes on the scene.  She's appeared on many of television's outstanding comedy shows: Ray Bolger, George Gobel, Danny Kaye and has appeared in several movies including “Send Me No Flowers” with Doris Day and Rock Hudson.  Among her outstanding successes was the role of “Sarah Jackman” in the Allen Sherman comedy album.

Reginald X. Carlisle is the pseudonym for a famous radio, television and screen personality.  Since Reggie has relatives living in both Israel and the Vatican—he prefers to remain anonymous.
