Greasy Kid Stuff
"Greasy Kid Stuff" probably isn't the best name for a children's radio show, especially considering what's been happening on Capitol Hill recently, but it's definetely worth a listen. I caught a part of KNRK's fairly new "kid and adult friendly music program" last Saturday morning. This week's show had a robot vs. monkey theme and for a full hour DJs Belinda Miller and Hova Najarian rolled out tracks sticking strictly to the theme.
The simians struck first with the Hoppin' Haole Brothers' "Monkey's Brain" as the two sides dived into battle. I didn't listen long enough to hear who was left standing by the end. Still, I think the monkeys deserve the win for Big T Tyler's "King Kong," a jazzy track that laments the big ape's ill-fated trip to NYC.
According to the show's blog, it looks like robots won with Berserk's "Giant Robots." Or maybe the DJs were judging this FM battle strictly on a points system. When I jumped out of my car for an early tee time (yeah, I golf), the two sides were tied.
"Greasy Kid Stuff" airs every Saturday morning from 8 - 9 AM on 94.7 FM in Portland. Tune in, if you're ever up at that hour. Speaking of monkeys vs. (bunny piloted) robots, check out this animated video for a band called Xploding Plastix. It even has a twist ending.
And for something creepier, check out Gnarls Barkley's latest.
