In Maine, WBZ was the best station I could get during the day. (MEX , KBW   
and PTR only came in at night.)  I remember Carl DeSuze and his   
"dissertation" on "The Twister" - a tongue-in-cheek commentary on "The   
Twist".  Funny, but skewed towards the "Adult" view rather than the   
Teen's view.  Anybody have a tape?

I remember Carl (perhaps others, too) using a verse & chorus from Peter   
Seller's "They're Moving Grandpa's Grave" as a drop (took me 20 years to   
find out what it was and get a copy of it).  They also had a song(?)   
snippet that said "Rub your belly with linseed oil and wrap your head   
with aluminum foil" - anybody know where that comes from?  Have a copy?
