Renny's Riot
Wednesday July 12th, 2023 with Reprehensible Renny
More curveballs than a Sandy Koufax no hitter, with island hopping music, roller-skating songs, some country & rockabilly grit & grind & finishing off with some unhinged strings.

I couldn't find my version of Horrible World, Ugly People.

Who is listening? Please drop me a line.

Hey Renny, some lovely sunshine reggae in the summer. Love that version of Memphis!

1:39 PM, July 12th, 2023
Ha, yes always liked that tune Renny. Fits in perfectly I thought.

1:42 PM, July 12th, 2023
I think Mr. Cliff is describing what could be, not what actually exists.

1:43 PM, July 12th, 2023
Renny G (host)
Thanks Ian & Frankie. Yeah, I always think of reggae when it's hot and muggy out. Not today, but when I put the show together.

1:44 PM, July 12th, 2023
Hey Renny ... nice summery start to the show on such a nice summery day! 😊

Oh Baby was recorded behind L.P. Buford's store, at a Labour Day BBQ in Como, Mississippi.

Had to laugh at `Roxy Roller'. Probably a low brow point of glam rock. Catchy tune though.

2:23 PM, July 12th, 2023
Renny G (host)
I couldn't believe that it was Bryan Adams singing that version.

2:24 PM, July 12th, 2023
Must have been before his nuggets dropped LOL

2:30 PM, July 12th, 2023
Renny G (host)
Ha! Ha! Ha!

2:31 PM, July 12th, 2023
First time listening! Loving it!

2:47 PM, July 12th, 2023
I did a wiki to find out that `Luther', was actually Luther Perkins. He died after a tragic house fire when he was 40. Apparently he and Johnny were `amphetamines' buddies. They probably stayed up all night and day working on the music.

2:48 PM, July 12th, 2023
Renny G (host)
No relation to Carl. Yes, I knew about he fire. Johnny Cash has some very bad mojo in his life.

Welcome to the Riot, Coco.

Had not has

2:52 PM, July 12th, 2023
Yes I was very suprised he was not related to Carl.

2:53 PM, July 12th, 2023
Renny G (host)
Carl did have brothers that he played music with. They were in a bad car accident on their way to go play on the Perry Como show. One died a few years later from a brain tumor.

Listening while I work here in London Ontario and thanx for playing the Spiny Anteaters. For some reason, I think they moved to Ottawa after living in London for a couple years.

The fools!

I remember their posters.

Renny G (host)
Hey Dave. Thanks for listening.

3:02 PM, July 12th, 2023
I didn't know Carl had musical brothers, I'll have to look that up. I actually saw Carl play with Johnny at the Ottawa Ex, in I think 1969. It was the whole show with the Carter family and the whole deal. It was in the afternoon outside about 90 degrees. As I remember Carl played a few songs, including Blue Suede Shoes and Matchbox (Blues), a song I knew from the early Beatles.

Renny G (host)
Wow. I'm envious.

3:17 PM, July 12th, 2023
What a show! Touching all the bases and sliding into home!
