Mea Culpa

Mea culpa. mea culpa, mea maxima culpa . . .

For I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word and deed.  Last week’s playlist was naughty, dirty, salacious, scabrous, you name it.

But that was then.  This week, we’re all sweetness and light, with music as pure as the driven snow.   Songs about baby animals (aren’t they cute!) songs by, for and about children (aren’t they cute!) and songs about the Blessed Virgin Mary.

What exactly is Salty Dick?

Only one in every thousand Americans can get this right, even though it’s multiple choice!

Hint:  Pictured below, sailors between bouts of whoring and buggery lying about on deck singing songs of, well, whoring and buggery.

So what is Salty Dick?

  1. A disgusting English confection like Spotted Dick, only more savory and best served with potatoes
  2. A sexually transmitted disease peculiar to sailors
  3. A mythical creature not unlike Moby Dick or Tricky Dick
  4. An unlikely gentleman with a PhD who sings filthy songs

If you guessed no. 4, congratulations!

Tonight on In Heaven There Is No Beer, we lend an ear to the scabrous crooning of Salty Dick, a professor of ethnomusicology who holds a PhD in Scatology from Pudendalia University.  And, of course, an accordionist.

Late Night Accordion Music

For consenting adults. On the radio. With everyone’s favorite accordion DJ:

unnamed-1

After a two week hiatus and more trouble than you can imagine, we are back and undaunted.

Easter music, blasphemous Good Friday carols, two Accordion Babes and the works. Plus tales of derring-do on the airlines and in small potatoes criminal court.

Why Americans hate immigrants

Isn’t it obvious? Because they take all the good jobs! Our jobs! Just look at this babushka, right off the boat and she has the cheek to head straight for Carnegie Hall. Oh the injustice.

Join us tonight in tracing some of these dubious clans that have come to America freighted with their infernal musical instruments: the Irish, Italians, Germans, Basques, Scandinavians, Poles, Estonians, even Canadians and Mexicans.

The inevitable conclusion: the accordion is undermining our American way of life. ‘Nuff said.
