"YAKETY YAK v. YAKETY SAX" on WMBR's Subject to Change Program
Sunday, November 3, 2019
12:00pm - 2:00pm
The Apocalypse is Nigh! Or so you will think as PatNauseum tackles perhaps the most ridiculed and ridiculous instrumental in pop history, Boots Randolph's "Yakety Sax" (aka the Benny Hill song). We'll explore the history of this dubious smash, including an extended detour into the Coasters' "Yakety Yak" (by Lieber-Stoller) whose saxophone solo is the inspiration/culprit for Boots. Get ready for two hours of hi-speed antics, which will include Jamaican versions so good you just might forgive the host for this show.
