Message: 1 Date: Wed, 30 Apr 2003 13:30:31 -0700 (PDT) From: David Coyle Subject: Odd Musical Moment on TV I was watching one of those blooper specials on I think it was ABC the other night. It was a 50th anniversary show, hosted like always by Dick Clark. Anyway, he showed an outtake that apparently hasn't been aired before, from the show "McHale's Navy" in 1962. The cast was bored waiting for the director to yell action, so they start improvising. One of the cast members starts singing "Papa-oom-mow-mow," ala the great Rivingtons hit, and another starts improv-ing lyrics in a high-pitched doowoppish voice, singing "I love you baby, baby, I love you..." Pretty soon the whole cast, including Ernest Borgnine, is "papa-oom-mow-mow"ing and dancing around. It was pretty funny. Of course, this was followed up by the classic "naked woman at the door" clip from "The Soupy Sales Show." David -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Rhino/Warner Strategic Marketing no longer owns these masters. They're now in the hands of Nancy herself, so she (and her managment) calls the shots as to how the material gets reissued and compiled. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I > have been thinking of developing a concept to give such stations > one element they are missing that original Top 40-50-60 stations > had - some new songs added every week! I have long said -- I believe at least once in this very forum -- that I would love to program an oldies radio station that went on the air on, say, January 1, 2004, that was limited in its playlists only to songs that came out before, say, January 1, 1958. And on January 8, 2004, you can add any song that was released the week of January 1-7, 1958, and so on in perpetuity. I think that would be a fascinating listen.

It must also be said that if "Don't Know Why" had come out in 1965 on Pye or MGM -- and there is absolutely no reason why it couldn't have, from the song to its arrangement and production -- most people on this list would be hailing it to the skies as a forgotten classic of the '60s and demanding that someone play it to musica. It's a phenomenal song and an excellent performance. S -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Are there any > other shows that we should consider? Check for how to broadcast. Basically all I do is upload my songs (mp3s) to their servers and they stream them for me. Basic service costs 4.99 per month. As for other stations - check the stations I have recommended or type in oldies (or any genre) in the search box. Glad you liked the station. BTW that's me doing the "Golden Age of Pop!" liner! :) Billy -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 6 Date: Wed, 30 Apr 2003 15:33:23 -0700 (PDT) From: Artie Wayne Subject: Re: Early Nancy Sinatra Mikey.....How ya' doin'. Have you ever heard the XXX rated version of "Like I Do" It was actually commercially released on a b-side of one of her early records. I heard that it was recorded as a joke....... but it wasn't funny to her father Frank Sinatra who fired everybody at the label who helped it escape!!! I no longer have a copy of it.......I gave it to Stanley Greenberg [Florences' son] which earned me some points at Scepter records. regards, Artie -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 7 Date: Thu, 01 May 2003 15:30:55 -0000 From: Patrick Rands Subject: Songs Of War I'm not sure how many, if any of you, tuned in Tuesday night when I played my songs of war segment on my radio show (90,3 FM in the Boston area) but for the record here's what I played that hallowed eve. Songs of War radio special (Tues Apr 29th 2003, 06 -7:20 PM) Tennessee Ernie Ford - Ballad Of The Ghost Squadron Donna Lynn - Navy Blue Diane Renay - Kiss Me Sailor Fats Domino - Sailor Boy Goldie & The Gingerbreads - Sailor Boy Brenda Hall - Soldier Baby Of Mine The Exceptions - Soldier Boy The Soldier Boys - I'm Your Soldier Boy The Detergents - Soldier Girl Dale Brooks - Army Green The Shangri-Las - Long Live Our Love Sugar and Spice - Cruel War Miss Toni Fisher - West Of The Wall Phil Ochs - Draft Dodger Rag The Turtles - Eve Of Destruction The Spokesmen - Dawn Of Correction Chris Lucey - World War 3 Major Herschel Gober - Picture Of A Man The Zombies - Butcher's Tale (Western Front 1914) The Pretty Things - Private Sorrow The Animals - Sky Pilot The Masters Apprentice - War Or Hands Of Time Edwin Starr - Stop The War Now Nara Leao - Grandola, Vila Morena Vince Vance & The Valiants - Bomb Iran Believe it or not I forgot to play The Shirelles song Soldier Boy. I'd like to thank Phil Milstein and Phil Chapman for setting me up with some of these songs, without them it would not have been possible. Maybe next time I can go from 1980 to the present day (Soldier Girl by Polyphonic Spree anyone?). Have a good one! :Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 8 Date: Thu, 01 May 2003 19:47:28 +0930 From: Norman Subject: Re: Radio Hi With the recent discussion of available radio stations giving us our kind of music I was prompted to share this site with you: It is a Community station in Adelaide that includes some interesting programmes playing 50's 60's and 70's memories. Should anyone be interesting to listening it is broadcasting via the net. The time zones would be a problem I suppose. My recommendations would be Phil and Rob, John Morrissey, Mark Constable, Alex Rex and Judith Waugh. I have had the pleasure of appearing on three of those programmes playing my choice of 60's pop so I know from experience that you will hear some interesting titles spun with a distinctive Aussie outlook. John Morrissey has a particular liking for music that is American, as well as Australian, and often features the such gems as The Fireballs, American Breed and even Paul Revere and the Raiders. All music played by the announcers is their personal choice and because they lived the 40's 50' 60's and 70's they know what was being listened to below the top ten.

Message: 9 Date: Thu, 01 May 2003 19:26:56 +0100 From: Mick Patrick Subject: Re: Linda Laurie & Bert Berns My recent missive concerning Linda Laurie prompted an off list response from Brett Berns, son of the great Bert. Here's an extract: > Thanks so much for your Linda Laurie bio...I don't know many > people who could name Keetch, Caesar and Dino.

Is she in > New York City? Linda Laurie's most famous composition, "Leave Me Alone (Ruby Red Dress)", is published by Anne-Rachel Music Corp and Warner/ Chappell Music Inc of Los Angeles, and The Brooklyn Music Co of Santa Barbara. I suspect Anne and Rachel are Linda's middle names, making her Linda Anne Rachel Gertz. I imagine she would be contactable via one or the other of those companies. I have a nice photograph of Linda buried in my collection, plus a 7-inch 4 track EP from France containing her above-mentioned pair of Keetch label recordings, should such pictorial artefacts ever be required. Brett, can you tell me anything about another of your father's Keetch acts, the Pussycats, purveyors of the cod-Jamaican "Come On And Ska"?
