About the show

Playing tracks by

The Greenbrier Boys, Harry Nilsson, The Soul Brothers Six, The Wild Ones, The Outsiders and more.

Songs you know and love but not the versions you're familiar with. Hear the original versions of tunes that later became hits for other bands or performers.

What made songs like "Wild Thing", "Something Stupid", Everybody's Talkin'" or "Bend Me, Shape Me" hits. You're about to discover some of the reasons.
