Magic Whistle Radio Hour 132

Things I've collected over the years or acquired on mixtapes and comps or gathered from the internet or the library or my parents' attic. The different sources are the reason for the volume disparity. I make no claims to "discovering" or "owning" anything. Probably neither do you. It's whatever I feel like playing that week. Every Saturday. No repeats. Things that may or may not be familiar. Who knows? The time's next to each song in case you don't like something or it's icky or if you don't want your kids to hear it. Don't let offense at one song cloud your impression of the curation as a whole. Past weeks here too. Just type "Audio" in the search engine. Or if you're too lazy to press a button more than once, here's everything up to July 2017. You don't get the all playlists, though. You can right-click this if you want to save a zip file of this one (containing an mp3 of the file) for later. Here what information I was able to find:

59:48 WARREN COVINGTON- Mama and Papa Twist (1962)
“America has 'flipped' over dances before. In their own time, the charleston, tango, rhumba, the lindy, and so on, have caused no small amount of excitement. It's safe to say, though, that no other dance, has captured the imaginations (and sacroiliacs) of so many people as has the present dance phenomenon, THE TWIST.
“The twist is probably the first teen fad that hasn't been frowned upon by parents. The reason is simple...there are as many, if not more, adults doing the twist than teenagers.
“Warren Covington, whose musical appeal to dancers young and old alike is perhaps as universal as the twist, has captured the magic new beat in this album with an unusually bright combination of authenticity and inventive originality.”
