    What is the bumper music after the news and before Mike Malloy?

    Anonymous, me again it is a instrumental.

    10:42 PM  
    Professor Blogger @whut said...

    most likely the orchestrated Pink Floyd numbers.

    I was wondering, if anyone will ever come back to this thread, if anyone can tell me the name or artist of a song that was played on 3/6/2006 on the Randi Rhodes Show, while Mike Malloy sub'ed in for her. The lyrics go: "Hail, Caesar! This is what you're fighting for! Hail, Caesar!" and went on to say something about Jeb getting George elected. I have Googled, emailed, searched and consider this a prayer... If Silent Jay doesn't update his song list... I'll... I'll... wait.

    Malloy plays quite a few found bits off the internet. Good luck on finding that one.

    I've been trying to find out which concert Al's version of Terrapin Station is from because it is one of the best I've heard - and I've heard many. Does anyone know the date?

    A deadicated deadHead could help you out there. I couldn't scratch the surface of the mountains of bootlegs.

    There is some soft rock instrumental music that plays in the background of Randi's and Hartmann's show and I'm wondering who does it. My guess is that it's coming from Air America... and plays when a local affiliate doesn't have spots to run (or is asleep at the wheel). For instance on today's Hartmann show twice the show would break... play one ad which I assume are AA's ads, then go to this instrumental rock music that would end exactly when Hartmann's own bumper music started. It almost sounds as if these songs were recorded just to fit into a 60 or 120 minute time slot.

    Anyone know who does them? Thanks!

    Probably something with no copyright restrictions.

    McLusky, The Cramps, Mission of Burma, Husker Du, the Talking Heads!?

    Wow, most of my favorite bands are present on these lists.

    They could benefit from some Sonic Youth though.
