Our Word for the Day on the Ingram mess is Contravene…
In writing liner notes, sometimes there are no words… Listen, kemosabe. Nobody is better at one liners than Dan Ingram! Period. Now, obviously, Big Dan doesn’t make a funny every break, but most. If you take the time to really LISTEN to this tightly scoped aircheck, you’ll be laughing before it’s done. I’m not posting the punch line, you need to hear it, every time!
This is posted on the occasion of Dan Ingram’s 83rd birthday. Happy Birthday, Kemosabe and here’s to many more!
This came in recorded HOT! What I mean by that is, the levels were so high that theres a bit of distortion on the recording. Its more noticeable at the beginning than at the end. Cassettes can be a wonderful thing. In this case, obviously recorded on a high-end recorder, it runs 50 minutes, unscoped. For the purposes of archiving, I had to once again, edit the entire tape and bring it to you scoped, to comply with current copyright law. If at some time in the future, laws are relaxed regarding online music content, perhaps I will be able to post unscoped tapes, but trends being what they are, it does not look like that will happen anytime soon.
The commercial breaks are mostly spliced out, however, I kept two in. One is a hilarious live read from Dan Ingram about an Italian Restaurant and the other is a computer store, which I kept in for historical purposes. I mean, really… anyone out there want a new palm device? Blackberrys became all the rage 15 years ago but who uses one now? (Someone does, I’m sure).
