This is great stuff...thanks Doug.

Some songs here are great, like "Broken Hearted Melody" by sassy Sarah Vaughan, which went to #1 on KYA in the Bay Area. And "Sea Of Love" at #1 here, killer song. "Caterpillar Crawl" is one great instro and "Linda Lu" is a fine gtr. rocker by a black rockabilly singer, Ray Sharpe. Sleeper of the week, "The Mummy" by Bob McFadden...really Rod McKuen. Finally, "Leave My Kitten Alone" by Little Willie John is a very obscure double entendre, about a pussy...I mean kitten. Other records, not so much.
