    He and Hanzi should hang out. He's insane. He thinks the shitty song he put out 800 years ago should be played on the radio The guy might be more dilusional than Eric the midget. Oh and great booking once again Booey. Who's on next week, Jerry Lee Lewis?

    Chubby Checker, Fats Domino. . . . surprised there wasn't a musician re-named "Johnny Rook."

    I couldn't believe what I was hearing. Think Chubby's become a little soft in the head. First of all, The Twist is a great little song but its a relic from another era and it is now a novelty, not a mainstream song. Second, Chubby does get airtime - I hear The Twist and Let's Twist Again on both Sirius (60s on 6) and over terrestrial radio on CBS-FM in NY.

    In other news, Fogerty is pissed that Proud Mary isn't played on Sirius Hits 1.

    Checker is out of his skull. It's an old song.

    Poor guy must be broke as fuck. I actually felt sorry for the guy but man is he insane. That was a totally different era, no one cares anymore. You don't hear Jerry Lee Lewis either so stop whining.

    I'll be hearing his voice in my head all day saying over and over "But it's the number one song in the world!"

    Chubby is old and broke.
    Someday soon Robin and Booey will be goofed on while calling into a radio show to pay the bills after Howard flees to Florida.

    All I know is, I have the top 100 songs from the years 1950 to 1980 on my Ipod, and when Chubby's novelty songs come on, I skip them. Every time.

    Last summer Chubby checker was at a little ice cream shoppe about a block from our beach cottage in nc. The place was packed! He had a nice tour bus too.

    Was he working at the ice cream place? Sorry that was mean, I feel for the guy, he can't seem to let the past go.

    FYI that list he was referring to also has The Macarena and that shitty Olivia Newton John song so that proves that list is worthless.

    Chubby's concept of radio is outdated. He apparently still thinks over the air broadcasting of music is what determines popularity. Music is divided up into different genres these days, both on satellite and on the web. If Chubby wants to hear his song played, he needs to find the right niche.
