Hey Mr JS, plenty this week for me to research as not heard before, The Pizzicato Five for sure, always in search of feel good tunes and that was one for my eternal playlist, and you cant fail with Mr Cooke, thanks as always 😎🎶🎶😎

Johnny Switchblade

Thanks as always, SID! The Pizzicato Five album that that song is from, "The Sound Of Music," has a similar energetic and upbeat vibe throughout. J. Switchblade sez: check it ouuuuut....

Great show, Johnny. Loved Ramblin' Red--could've sworn it was Jimmie Rodgers himself. "Song for the Asking" was a great way to close.

Thanks as ever, tferd! I like on "Song For The Asking" when Paul Simon bends that note on his guitar, and the orchestra emphasizes it. Have a great weekend!

The Captain Maniac Show

Thanks, Johnny! yes born to be wild isone of my signature tunes like roadhouse blues!

The Captain Maniac Show

An eclectic set for sure -- everybody from Joe Tex to Skynyrd! (Back in the old days, local R&B bands would always play Joe Tex's "Show Me", and in the Vancouver area, that tune was a big hit.)

Also good to hear Steppenwolf and their tune Screaming' Night Hog! Always loved that one, but of course my fave Steppenwolf song is not Born To Be Mild, but Who Needs Ya! Rock on!

Thanks as always, Captain M! I bet I will play "Show Me" on this show at some point. And I've heard a certain Captain has been known to belt out a version of "Born To Be Wyld" -- when the moon is full and the stars are correctly aligned.
