Hokey Pokey Disco
In honor of my first contribution to this year's 365 Days Project, I'd like to present an update to the original 365 Days go-round. "Hokey Pokey Disco" was one of my favorite tracks from the first go-round, so when I came across another song with the same title, I had to own it.
It wasn't until the night before my radio show that I realized what I had.
This track comes from DISCO LUMMI STICK ACTIVITIES, released by Kimbo Educational Records in 1979. That's not the cover (I didn't get one with my copy) but an illustration of lummi sticks preparing for Kaiju. The original "Hokey Pokey Disco" came from DISCOROBICS, also released by Kimbo Educational Records in 1979. See a pattern here?
Indeed, this is the same guy who narrated the DISCOROBICS version, only this time he doesn't have the backup singers, so he has to sing it himself. While he may have outstanding diction and the speedtalking skills required to lay down disco dance moves to the beat, he does not possess the ability to carry a tune.
I bought a song based on a title and came up with a sequel. This is one of my favorite finds, and my thanks go out to Jason Cox for posting the first "Hokey Pokey Disco."
So Do We Get a Podcast, or What?
Yes, yes you do. The Super Secret Safe-Harbor Broadcast is now available for a week for your downloading and listening pleasure. This is NOT work-safe. Let me repeat, THIS IS NOT WORK SAFE. But it is fun.
