There is an erotic creature loose in the studio! Her name is June Diane Raphael and she's left her buddies at How Did This Get Made? to countdown the Billboard Tastemakers Chart, the Movie Chart, and to play a quick round of Chart Roulette. She and Howard discuss Devo awareness, commiserate over scares and frights, and define "upstairs" versus "downstairs." And that's just a taste! Be sure to listen for the announcement of the 12 Cups of Summah winner, you stumblebums!

In case anyone is interested, the purpose of the whiny vocal exercise is to focus the air stream to the mouth while employing the nasal cavity for resonance.

Putting "K" after a number does in fact mean thousand like Kulap thought. The "K" stands for the metric prefix Kilo which means one thousand. Putting "G" after a number also means the same, but it is only related to money. Grand is a slang term that has come to mean one thousand dollars, but has its origins in using the term to describe a large amount of money from the early 1900s.
Kulap probably had to learn the metric system as a child seeing as she isn't an American. Still waiting on seeing the birth certificate to prove me wrong.

Another great show guys!
What's high in the middle and round on the end? O-hi-o! I might visit if they turned the state into a Devo theme park.
Howard, I had a beer can collection about the same age as you, back in the early 80's....my favorite was Billy Beer.
Keep up the phunny!

Really liked the show today with June Diane Raphael. Special day, my birthday, and got my new WC tee, yahoo! Better than summah? Well, close. Been listening since at least Jen Kirkman. So glad. I'm 64 today, and it's good to know what you youngsters are up to. Heh heh. Also the charts help me stay culturally literate.

I wonder how excited June will be for Anne Hathaway being announced as cast in the film adaptation of the musical she name checked liking (Les Mis)? Her shuddering at Howard comparing her to Anne was one of my favorite moments of the episode. You're hilarious on all your EarWolf appearances June.

FYI...the song that everyone liked that was playing during 50/50 trailer was "Lunchmeat" by a band called Menomena. They are truly one of the best bands to see live....I will go out of my way to catch them whenever they come to Socal/Phoenix. They are very Portlandish....being from Portland. LOVE THEM!!!
I know this band would make it past into the Vilauckerman household, but I think even Howard would dig them.
Hopefully fellow listener Will is telling the truth and is actually 64....that just made me smile and made my day.
