Classic Rock Bottom

Another Part from last year that is exclusive to you- a musical look at Teachers.

You know, Teachers have to go Back To School too.
I wonder how they feel about that?
Not as miserable as I was, I’ll bet, lol!
We will begin this musical look at Teachers with some words- funny words- from New York City’s own (the Bronx), and former NYC substitute teacher, Robert Klein.
Opening a very long set.
After that, well, there are Good Teachers and Bad Teachers- the ones we relate to are mostly fictional, we see them in movies or TV series.
The real GOOD ones toil anonymously, dedicated to their students, going well beyond the school day and their duties, and never getting much credit for it.
They should be celebrated.
As the true BAD teachers should be revealed.
How to do that, I leave to you.
I do music, and we begin our take on Good Teachers with a another comedian- whose standup routine was the idea for a television series.
To be continued…

Here's the link for Pt.1, at WLSO.FM:

Dear Scott,
Nice going, you did pick .38 Special.
Now stop pointing it at me, lol!
I have to be honest, I never even thought of Cheech & Chong's Sister Mary Elephant.
That would have fit in beautifully.
See, sometimes people come up with GREAT suggestions!
I didn't have a shortage of songs though, but that would have changed things.
Thanks for listening & writing- see what you think of Pt.2 later,

Dear RJ,
Glad you liked it, Pt.2 will be here later.
Now don't be too hard on yourself, Seinfeld was a good guess.
It's only looking backwards where Welcome Back Kotter seems easy to get- don't be a Monday Morning Quarterback, lol!
And I will testify that you do in fact HAVE half a brain...and more, lol!
Yeah not much happened with that cast, particularly Gabe Kaplan- where the hell IS he?
I was really proud of the Jethro Tull, as I said on the show I hadn't heard it in ages.
And I can vividly remember finding it, I was looking through my vinyl albums, and there it was, the Benefit album.
But what I played was from the CD.
In A Big Country was their big hit here in the States, and I am happy to introduce you to The Teacher.
I make the occasional good call, lol!
Thanks as always for writing, listeners like you guys make the show worth doing,

Hey I got one! 38 Special!

I love the comedy routines sprinkled in, actually made me think of Sister Mary Elelphant from Cheech and Chong which may have worked well here too. Maybe in part 2?

What a great show. But I'm so disappointed in myself. Why did I guess Seinfeld? Only because you said stand-up that inspired a TV show. But if I had half a brain, I would have thought about the subject and certainly remembered a TV show named Welcome Back Kotter. I loved that show. I did not know that Kaplan's stand-up routine inspired it. The bit with Horshack/Horse shit was hilarious. And the "up your nose" bit for the show was "up your nose with a rubber hose". Great memories, and you're correct, John Travolta (Vinnie Barbarino) was the only cast member who every really did anything else.

I loved the .38 Special and Jethro Tull songs. Those were great picks.

The big surprise for me was the Big Country song. The only song I remember by that band was actually called "Big Country" or "In A Big Country", I'm not sure of the exact title. But "The Teacher" is a really good song that is totally new to me. Good call Mike.
