Hippie Love Turbo Radio Show - Code Word "Fig"

On this week's Hippie Love Turbo Radio Show, on KUCR 88.3 FM, I played a little ditty by
The Poets that was used during a real silly party scene in the movie: Frankenstein Meets the Space Monster.
Hey, space lady! Do you like rock n roll music?
During one of the breaks I got a little agricultural and mentioned the clumsy but lovable Fig Beetle, also known as Figeaters, and I speculated that Lebanese band The Cedars, were most likely named after the beautifully fragrant cedar of Lebanon.

This week's movie choice was: A Penguin's Memories, which is a unusually endearing movie about a penguin that tries to readjust to life after fighting in the "Delta War" (an analogue of the Vietnam War.) It's bizarre seeing cute animals tackle such dark topics, but what adds to this strangeness is knowing that the main penguin characters originated from Japanese beer commercials for the brand Suntory Beer. Read more about this film here.

The songs featured during this episode are below:

The Cedars - I Don't Know Why

The Strangers - Fever

The Crystal Rain - Hey Ma Ma

Bandolero - Together

The Painted Ship ‎– Frustration

The Baroques - Mary Jane

Shoremen - She's Bad

Namelosers - Susie Q

The Ghost Squad - Sitting In The Park
