I'm back. Let's celebrate!


Hello fellow interwebbers. It's been brought to my attention that the Junk Shop Juke Box has been off the air for a solid two months! I knew it had been a while, but i didn't realize it was that long. I'll spare you all the details of why exactly. Without getting overly personal on the internets, a couple things factored into my absence. About two months ago i purchased a brand new computer, therefore didn't have any music files in the new one. I've been working a lot. And on the days that i do have off, i'm just plain lazy and/or drunk. Long story short- I felt like blowing it off and taking a vacation, so I did that. Now i'm back.

Today i had the day off, and the opportunity to sit around the house with no distractions. I finally got around to backing up my old laptop to the external hard-drive, and transferring some music files into the new computer. It's a tedious boring task, and that's why i've been putting it off...

Since i've been away so long, i decided to compile a short playlist for your listening enjoyment.
Nine old Honky-Tonk drinking songs and a few old beer commercials of the same vintage. All the songs are from my personal collection. Some of the commercials are and some aren't. Some of these songs have been featured here in the past, but some haven't.

 
Crack a cold one and enjoy!


Here's the playlist:

I’m gonna tie one on tonight - Wilburn brothers
Schlitz malt liquor commercial
An hour and a six pack away - Cal Smith
Here i am drunk again - Moe Bandy
Busch beer commercial
I come home a drinking - Jack Webb
Beers and tears - Carl Butler & Pearl
Redneck county spot
I gotta get drunk - Durwood Haddock
Drinking and thinking - Gene Shannondoah
Miller beer commercial
On tap in the can or in the bottle - Hank Thompson
Heileman’s Old Style beer song/commercial

The whole towns batty about Cincinnati


I'm not a Cincinnati fan, so i don't know if they play this one at the ball park or what, but it's old. They are still called the 'Red Legs' on the label.

Here's a bit from their wikipedia page explaining the short lived name change:
Twice in the 1950s (the McCarthy era), the Reds, fearing that their traditional club nickname would associate them with the threat of Communism, officially changed the name of the team to the "Cincinnati Redlegs". From 1956 to 1960, the club's logo was altered to remove the term "REDS" from the inside of the "wishbone C" symbol. The "REDS" reappeared on the 1961 uniforms, but the point of the C was removed, leaving a smooth, non-wishbone curve. The traditional home-uniform logo was restored in 1967.

I found two copies of this record in a dirty milk crate at a yard sale in Kentucky last summer. One of them was cracked, this is the other one.

Go sports!

You can see clearly now


My girlfriend picked this up for me recently at an estate sale. Neither of us remembers John Coleman, as she was a matter days old in March of 1973 (Postmarked on the mailer) and i was still a bun in the oven with a few months left to cook...

I did a little googlin. It seems that John was a Chicago TV weatherman at the time. It's one of those flexi records, and in my sleeve has not one, not two, but three copies of it. Anyone out there a John Coleman fan? Send a personal message. We'll work something out. I don't need three copies of this...

Enjoy!
