Happy Halloween from Mad Daddy & Fool's Paradise!

Mad Daddy Rides Again! A Halloween Treat From The Fool's Paradise Archives!

Here's an audio excerpt from a pile of Mad Daddy airchecks recorded by a couple of young Clevelanders back in 1958. It features Mad Daddy at the height of his considerable powers with classic platter chatter and some sleazy RnB sounds from the likes of Fenton Robinson, The Rays and other notables!

Listen closely and hear the two teenaged archivists who recorded these shows goof on the Mad Dad and put down their own pals on tape ("Olson wears Batty Bucks on his ears!")

These two from the pimples and braces set are true below for the countdown!

Mad Daddy (reel to reel)

Thanks, Rex!

I know this post is 4 years old but are there more tapes available? I'm a big Mad Daddy fan and always on the lookout for more Mad Daddy airchecks...unfortunately there isn't much stuff around.

I just found this tape of an old Fool's Paradise show. I wonder if it was Bill Tash & friend that made the tape? I'm still looking for the Dec 31 1958 tape you played a clip from recently.
