After many trajectorily successful years on WAIF…

1

It was the final episode of Bubbles in the Think Tank ORIGINAL on WAIF 88.3FM in Cincinnati. But the love continues on at Bubbles in the Think Tank EAST on WMFO 91.5FM in Boston. And it is agreed…we said all there is to Read more ›

Don’t Let It Be

3

It was a wild night. At the time, it was the biggest fundraiser WAIF had ever had. 40 bands in 5 hours.  Each doing one Beatles song. The Southgate House was packed.  Dagmar Haagerstom was the MC. Pool of Gyrations…well…that’s Read more ›

As if the show wasn’t big enough already, here’s catch up to the fifth power.

When passwords and user ID’s and previously saved form-thingies go missing, Muffin tends to slack off. Just a bit mind you. I mean it not like she’s a month… 2 months… ‘that’ far behind. So enjoy 10 or so hours Read more ›

Fluff those feathers.

Tired of turkey leftovers already? Lines too long at the mall? Pants refuse to button? Yes, a little bird told us that you might need a black Friday pick-me-up. Tweet tweet tweet

Lovey happy bubbly

In pursuit of happiness And bubbles And love It’s what we do

Drop pants, not bombs.

This is where it might get confusing. There was a gun show. There was a knife show. There was cable and software failure. And so both shows are sadly non-archive-able. So we will mosey straight to the heavy artillery, the Read more ›

Save a horse

English Muffin isn’t much of a hat girl, but she does want a cowboy hat. Not the belt, boots or chaps. Although if they happen to become available at the same time as the hat, she could be convinced to Read more ›

Horn broken, use finger

And sometimes English Muffin drives off the rails and forgets about stuff. But never about poor Henry Bliss. Flatten by a taxi on September 13, 1899. And that date, 62 years later was the day that Dave Mustaine came screaming Read more ›

It can never be the same without the magic words

Pop pop pop Giggle Wombadi Wombadi Wombadi Ahhhhh,  Bubblegum euro pop… So much sugar and silliness.

Is it a threeway or a threesome? And do spectators count?

Not just eye-candy. But do I really need to say anymore?

And the ransom note said “Listen to the vinyl”.

Yup, Radio Porkopolis hijacked the airwaves/stream once again last night (Thursday). In the studio with JF were The Dopamines. Their vinyl release party is tonite (Friday) but they let us have a sneak listen before anyone else. That means that Read more ›

Whatcha gonna do with all that junk?

I don’t know about you but my trunk is full. I’ve a butt load of old books I really need to take to the bookstore. I’m up to my arse in candles; scented, coloured, plain and/or a mix of all Read more ›

Watch out for the booby trap.

It was all in the name of science. And science would never lead us astray now, would it? I mean, gamma rays, spiderbites and plant toxins aside, experimentation can be good. And so Boobquake in the Think Tank occured. The Read more ›

And it was all a dream.

And then Alice woke up and Bobby was in the shower, Sue Ellen wasn’t drunk and JR cuddled puppies and painted rainbows. My favourite Dallas (or Dynasty, Colby’s or Falcon Crest) story is of watching it with my mum (yes, Read more ›

I smacked Cliff and nicked his notes

So we have zipped through chapters 1-8 (and some of 9) of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and to be honest, it’s a blur. All this eat me, drink me, tea party, hedgehogs and tarts has befuddled me. So a quick Read more ›

Tasty tiny tarts.

The Queen of Hearts, she made some tarts, all on a summers day. The Knave of Hearts, he stole those tarts and took them clean away. The Kings of Hearts called for the tarts and beat the Knave full sore. Read more ›

Can I play with madness

We all know that Muffin is a bit of a metal head. High school days saw her in the “Kill ‘em all” t-shirt, driving the Escort with Anthrax turned up to 11. Military days saw her in the uniform, driving Read more ›

Leftovers served below.

Who’s the favourite now?

Not that I ever try to outdo my sister… But still… Yes, I have posted a picture of my mother’s cat, Takka. Nothing makes my mum smile quite as much as her ‘furry’ children (the other furry one, Clover, had Read more ›

Does a duck’s quack echo in the woods?

1

Well, I’m sure it does but the bear was hungry. Mmmm, duck a l’orange. But I digress. Last night’s show was all about the love. Because, well, that’s what Bubbles in the Think Tank is about. Love. And silliness. But Read more ›

We kissed to that voice each night

Getting ready for last night’s show had me looking to the past.  I must’ve listened to a portion of 15 cassettes of Unsanitary Outhouse from the 1986-89 era.  Strangely, most of them did not have Bill Brinkmoeller on them.  Why Read more ›

You’re just talking about words

I’ve been quizzed a few times over the years about why I will occasionally play material that is clearly not funny on Bubbles in the Think Tank.  I usually just fall back on the standard “it’s not a comedy show, Read more ›

The rave of the brave

Was it the fireworks, the sight of the moon for the first time in weeks, or just the delirium of a four hour show?  Whatever it was, I’ll take a bucket of love like this anytime… it was olympian silliness Read more ›

If you’re from Kentucky, you can beat the odds

Kentucky is the saddest state.  Or so says the Centers for Disease Control. But you’d never know it by listening to Bubbles in the Think Tank.  Oh, we are definitely prone to a bout of melancholy on occasion or even Read more ›

Are you Randy in the Morning?

Now that’s an intimate question. Or is it just another insider style question asked by the self-styled leader of the original Think Tank Posse that merely references the title of a song about a radio show host?  How referential do Read more ›

Here’s a quick way to know everything you need to know about Belinda

2

This show is so pre-9/11. Really.  The date of the show is August 27, 2001.  All in all, a pretty good show.  The first half (joined in progress) is a rollicking leftover and request show.  Belinda has just made her Read more ›
