On November 29, The WANG DANG DOODLE returned to the Commodore with the most excellent DJ work of Dave the Spazz and Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus. Usually, the big, boss Commodore night of November is held on the day after Thanksgiving, but on this rare occasion, it was held on the Saturday after. It didn’t seem to matter, as both DJs dug deep into his respective bag of tricks and pulled out some fine food records to spin for the crowded room.

Dave the Spazz, of course, is the great WFMU DJ whose Thursday night show is the rage of the “in crowd” scene, and he digs all sorts of rockin’ stuff. See for yourself by streaming a recent broadcast HERE!!

Mr. Spazz played Huey Piano Smith records and The Boog played several Huey Piano Smith songs as performed by others. When these two DJs get together, you can always expect them to play monkey records. Toward the end of the evening, as the DJs go one-on-one, matching record-to-record, Mr. Spazz played Wanda Jackson’s fabulous “Funnel of Love” only for The Boog to counter with “The Time Funnel” by Jan Davis. It was another great night at the Commodore, with folks dancing violently, monkey videos showing on the TV screen and copious amounts of beer spilled on the floor!

Here’s a list of all the records played by Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus:

None of these records are for sale.
