SOJ Streaming Now in the Giant Economy Size We heard you, so now you can hear us! The most online listeners we can accommodate has iincreased to 150! Things will, of course, start getting dicey again as we approach the maximum, but the possibility is less likely. If you live in the Akron area and can hear us on radio, please consider doing so.

No Bottles...No Cans...No Cameras...No Nothing.TicketsAll the way back in 1966, a relatively unknown Jimi Hendrix was booked "on speculation" to appear at a local venue. They thought Hendrix might be big someday, but the show soon fell though the cracks and was forgotten when the recording industry decided guitar legends were just a passing fad. This "comp" ticket pair is believed to be the only one in existence. If you have them and were planning on attending, sorry -- Someone finally remembered, and the show was eventually canceled after multiple postponements. The Richfield Coliseum box office could not be reached for comment... we can't even find their parking lot.

Video of the WeekThe Rutles sing "Hold My Hand" on the Ed Sullivan Show February, 1964.

Much more than a "tribute act," The Rutles were a Beatles-like fictional band and parody created by Monty Python stars Eric Idle and Neil Innes for 1970's UK television. They became an actual group that toured and recorded, releasing multiple songs and albums. Not only that, but the Rutles parodies were covered by other bands.

The Rutles were the subject of two TV mockumentaries "All You Need is Cash" (with an appearance by and support of George Harrison), and "Can't Buy Me Lunch." Songs, albums, and videos are still available on Amazon. Really. No joke.

Not enough? Here are Get Up and Go and Cheese and Onions by the Ruttles, and The Pirate Song by (the real) George Harrison. For more info, visit The Ruttles website, or click here for a slightly more factual story on The Rutles.
