Pat Novak For Hire 11/27/09

Heard on Olde Time radio Pat Novak For Hire:

“Sooner or later you get burned, and it doesn’t make any difference whether you’re a man or a mouse. Because down in the waterfront, in San Francisco, they build the traps both ways… Down here, if you reach out to help a panhandler, the guy’ll take your arm and hand you back the dime… I rent boats and deal any place that’ll give a good trade-in on a second-hand soul.”

Watching The Detectives 11/27/09: The Streets Of San Francisco

This show was special because it was so close to home, and I’d seen most of the places in the show open.

Plus it had the funk. Listen to them lay that wah wah down!

With a real actor! Karl Malden. And Kirk Douglas’ kid.

And the best guest stars!

Also, where I picked up the phrase “Buddy boy“.

And the Ford LTD Broughm

Yes. Another Quinn Martin Production: The Streets Of San Francisco.

Stuck In My Ear: Jon Butcher Wishes

Stuck In My Ear: Jon Butcher Wishes

A song I haven’t heard since maybe 1990. But it pops into my head from time to time. Sadly, the album’s out of print, and while I haven’t checked, it would probably be impossible to find the original CD.

Jon Butcher has a Hendrix-esque quality to his sound. Doesn’t hurt that his band’s name was the Jon Butcher Axis (Bold as love, perchance?)

Not really a music video, but its embeddable here. I just like to hear the song.

More Jon Butcher later.
