I heard that Vin Scelsa had mentioned my web site on his
radio show, I was thrilled.
edition of "My Midlife Crisis" was posted to
the web on November 2, 2003.
Since the last show, Warren Zevon has passed on. The first set of music is an elegy to Warren, including his performance of "Don't Let Us Get Sick," from Idiot's Delight, January 27, 2000.
On the last edition of "My Midlife Crisis," I played several bits by Belle Barth, one of the so-called "dirty" comediennes of the 1950s and 1960s. Another comedienne from that era who I wanted to present on that program is Pearl Williams. The show ran long, so I left her on the cutting room floor.
An article by Michael Bronski in the Boston Phoenix ("'Shut Your Hole, honey. Mine's making money.' Funny girls talk dirty") provided all the excuse I needed to present a little Pearl on this show. I read from the article on the program, but if you want to read the entire article, click here.
