When it comes to cheese, Bill Shatner is King Cheddar! (hmm, all this talk of cheese is getting me hungry...)

I have heard many of Shatner's attempts at singing. I have never heard the guy even try to produce a singing voice. I don't know if he is even capable of doing it.

Sweat much, Shat?

Man, does it get funky after 4:20 in.

I see why Taupin said this was Shatner's "interpretation" of the song...

I've seen part of this before, but I still can't believe that 1) this exists, 2) Bernie Taupin witnessed it first-hand, 3) that they were NOT exaggerating on Family Guy, and 4) they allowed Shatner to do anything with music after The Transformed Man...

Okay, first the Life Day clip...now the Rocket Man clip...what's going to be the next disturbing scifi-related clip?

So, who is the cross-eyed lady announcer?

That is Karen Black. She was in a number of things in the 70's...none of which come to mind right now. ;-)

Karen Black was in Trilogy of Terror, and several low budget cheesy horror flicks. She was most recently seen as Mama Firefly in House of 1000 Corpses; and she's still just as crosseyed today.

Karen Black's most memorable movie IMO was 1988's "The Invisible Kid".A very awful movie,however,it feature the one highlight in that movie,it's when Chynna Phillips ("Wlison Phillips") drank some chemical that turned her invisible and she begins undressing,and that's when Karen Black walked in her son's room,when the unseen teenage girl was at the time.

Man, what is there to say about William Shatner's "singing"? Several years ago, my mom & I were at a rummage sale, where somebody was trying to sell a Telly Savalas LP. I showed it to my mom, who said, "I didn't know that Kojak could sing" The guy said, "Actually, he can't. He's worse than William Shatner" LOL

It would be interesting to hear an aircheck of the early Loop...get an idea of what they were putting out on the airwaves before they went personality-driven, unabashedly hardcore rock.

It says video not found or access denied. I can't play it at all.

Was that pilot they're talking to high? What was the matter with him?

LMBO @FuzziyMemories and BabyBear on your comments!!


Comment posted in Arby's - "America's Roast Beef Yes Sir!" (Commercial, 1981) by OldTime on Thursday, June 14th, 2018 at 5:33am CT

It used a red/white/blue motif. That wouldn't do today, too offensive. Now it would be pink, cream and aqua, with a vegan represented just so no one feels left out.

So much better than Ving Rhames bellowing "AW-Bee's! We have duh Meats!"

LMAO @ T.K. comment!!!!!

I miss those big cans of Hi-C Citrus Cooler - it was the perfect drink to go with brown sugar cinnamon Pop Tarts.

Where do you guys think you're going? Have some beer before you go out driving on those dark, icy roads!


Comment posted in WLUP - 'The Loop' FM 98 - "Do You Like Music?" (Commercial, 1978) by David H on Sunday, May 13th, 2018 at 10:57pm CT

Why, I like music. Especially "good ones." I think I'll give this musical radio station a try.
