CLA Radio 05/01/15: One-Hit Wonders (1955-1965)

CLAR134-OneHitWonders

Set list revised 4/26/15.

The next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday night, 05/01/15, 7:00 Pacific/10:00 Eastern–and at 9:00 in Dallas) will consist of a very random sampling of one-hit wonders from the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s (another theme suggestion from Breck Nichols).

Hope you can stop by and listen, and join us in chat!

Here’s the Spotify playlist.

    Threw me off for a moment with this one: Jack Nitzsche: The Lonely SurferI thought, “Wait, he’s too young to have had a hit that far back.” Then I realized that wasn’t the right spelling for Mr Fastbuck’s last name! Just think. I’ll be able to listen to the 5/1 CLAR live & in person, so to speak. With the host of the show, anyway. Assuming you don’t lock yourself up in your room for the show and not come out ’til it’s over. This trip, I’ll be able to hear the whole show instead of being at the hospital listening to Daddy-O’s stories.  And J.I.T. will be at work.  Bwahahahahahahaha!!!!!  😀 I’m obviously getting a kick out of this whole work thing. I’m sure it will wear off. But for now… why not!?!
