OMG it’s like the B-52s crossed with Dillinger Escape Plan!
/has watched Uncle Floyd on UHF.
LOVED the Stickmen! “Funky Hayride” was a staple of my radio show BITD. WRUR FM, 88.5 on the dial, “your friends on the left”
Man, I fondly miss the Uncle Floyd show, such wacky bits…
I loved the fact that he got a cameo in Good Morning Vietnam as a phone operator…
The keyboard player later went on to become on of the first female pilots for a major carrier in Paraguay. That’s a true story I just made up.
I’m glad that you cited your sources; otherwise I might have doubted the verisimilitude of your tale. I presume that the keyboard player was employed by Aerolínea Falsa?
Was a big fan of Uncle Floyd back in the day. Presented as a kids show, it worked much better for adults. He’s even had a viewer mail segment where viewers would send in fridge-level artwork, also by adults.
Mostly I was there for the piano-playing, which was excellent. My favorite songs were Cowboy Charlie and Deep In the Heart of Jersey, also in rotation on the Dr. Demento show.
