Don Hinson and The Rigamorticians- Monster Jerk - Riboflavin Flavored Non-carbanated Polyunsaturated Blood





Here is one time Vegas radio deejay Don Hinson's "Monster Dance Party" picture sleeve 45. Produced by Gary Paxton (Monster Mash) it's probably best remembered these for "Riboflavin Flavored, Non Carbonated, Poly-Unsaturated Blood" which was covered by goth punkers 45 Grave in 1980.

In 1980, 45 Grave recorded their first song, "Riboflavin Flavored, Non-Carbonated, Poly-Unsaturated Blood", included on the LAFMS (Los Angeles Free Music Society) art rock compilation album, "Darker Skratcher". Don Hinson at the time was a popular radio personality in Las Vegas, Nevada (and later for 20 years in Los Angeles, California). Mr. Hinson recorded the song in the wake of Bobby "Boris" Pickett's 1962 novelty song hit "Monster Mash" hoping to emulate the latter song's success and have an international hit record. Both "Monster Mash" and the Don Hinson original recording of "Riboflavin Flavored, Non-Carbonated, Poly-Unsaturated Blood" were produced by noted novelty song record producer Gary S. Paxton of Skip & Flip.

These whiny bitchy artists need to keep their stuff in print, if they don't want people to d/l it (duh!)---and quit their damn crying. 45 Grave's version of this song is probably better anyway, and I usually buy stuff when I like it, and it is in print and affordable. Thanks for posting it, even though someone whined and caused it to be removed. Not everyone has the time or money to track down rare music on Ebay for hundreds or thousands of dollars.

Well, guys, I was a good friend of Hinson's and I doubt very seriously if he had anything to do with sending the violations order. He wasn't that kind of guy. He was funny and wise and we always had a great time together while he worked at KLAC and I at KZLA in side by side studios. We had an intercom that was always buzzin's with one of our crazy gags or thoughts! You would have loved him, honest! He passed away a number of years ago and I miss him....
