Weekday Funnies.....Where You Gonna Go When The Big One Hits?

I figure it's Monday.....or at least it was when I posted this.....and on Mondays people could use a little funny.

In 1969, I was a DJ and music director at a little college radio station in Ypsilanti, MI when this strange and unusual 45 crossed my desk. Back in those days, Top 40 radio still had a sense of humor concerning the music it played. If you looked through the charts of that era, they're rife with things like....

and.....

For those of you younger listeners, they were "Loving Has Made Me Bananas" by Guy Marx (1968) and "I Was Kaiser Bill's Batman" (1968) by "Whistling Jack Smith", and actually whistled by studio musician John O'Neill. But I digress.....

As it were, this little ditty crossed my desk. It had a good beat, you could dance to it and I liked the lyrics (and am strongly resisting the urge to type "I'd give it an 85, Mr. Clark"). And it was fun.

The group is Shango, formed in Los Angeles in the late 60's by Tommy Hamilton, who went on to team up with Joe Frank Carollo and Dan Hamilton to have this smash.....

But prior to that, Reynolds put together a quartet that included actor Stuart Margolin (best known for playing Angel Martin on "The Rockford Files") and record producer Jerry Riopelle. The three wrote this little ditty, and it went on to be a moderate hit. If nothing else, it answers the musical question of where did Every Mother's Son tie up their boat after the big one hit.

Have a great day, and if you don't know the Swim, maybe Bobby Freeman can help.

Later, gator.....
