Hippie Love Turbo Radio Show - Code Word "Avocado"

On this week's Hippie Love Turbo Radio Show, on KUCR 88.3 FM, I played a song by The Troyes and I mentioned that they were from Battle Creek Michigan and that the bassist Jason Newsted was from Battle Creek as well. Are there some sort of rock and roll amoebas floating around in Battle Creeks drinking water? Who knows?
Unfortunately, I made a mistake in this episode and I said that I played: It's Monster Surfing Time from the album of the same name but, in fact, I played There's A Creature In The Surfer's Lagoon. Doh!

Man, does that album have a neat cover!

During this episode I played the song Batman and Robin Swing from the 1966 album Batman And Robin and I talked about how Sun Ra was involved in its production. You can read more about it on WFMU's Blog.
Hopefully, you are still in the reading mood, because you may have heard me play a song by the band Les Albatros and I speculated that their name was probably based on Samuel Taylor Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, which is a quick and spooky read that I really dig.
And of course we can't forget this weeks sleazy film recommendation: Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion.

The songs featured during this episode are below:



The Boston Boppers - Whirlwind Girl

The Good Vibrations - Call Me Lightning (The Who cover)

The Bittersweets - Hurtin Kind

The Sensational Guitars of Dan and Dale - Batman and Robin Swing

Cliff Honiker - Come On, Satan

Los Monstruos - Tenemos Que Irnos de Aquí

Antique ‎– Chaucha

Les Albatros - Flash

The Vejtables - I Still Love You (Unissued Alternate Version)
