Uncle Floyd

When one is young you get tuned into the underground culture. Even when it isn’t hip and happening, it’s underground so that makes it hip and happening.

When I lived in NJ there was a TV show way up on the UHF channels. It was called The Uncle Floyd Show and it was kind of like The Soupy Sales Show for those of you old enough to remember that. It was a kids show that was really meant for adults. There was a lot of inside and local humor. Floyd wore a plaid jacket and a funny hat. He had a cast of live characters and a cast of puppets. Floyd played the piano and did a lot of parody songs.

One song that we all loved back then was called, “Deep in the Heart of Jersey.” Again, my thanks to the people that upload this stuff to YouTube so you can all hear it. This one has no video, just the song.

Please enjoy Deep in the heart of Jersey.

sounds a little perv-ish, this Floyd character.

Hey, if it made to Dr Demento, then it's on my a-list! For a song, I can think of no higher praise.

Pam, No he wasn't a perv, but it was very inside where one had to watch the show for a week or so before the jokes started to make sense.

Darev, I have the entire collection on 45 RPM.
