Playlist for the Unpopular Music webcast for August 16, 2014

Bum a ride on the omnibus of art with today's playlist.

Today's opening is taken from Roger Corman's beatnik murder tale A Bucket of Blood. It's a hoot and a holler daddy-o, like wow you know. Here's the complete film. It's barely over an hour long and makes for good rainy-day entertainment.

The show ends with a remembrance of Robin Williams. Despite some of his corny, hammy and maudlin performances, I always remained a fan (I went as Mork for Halloween in 1979, or so, after all).

Become closer to immortality after the break...
