Classic Rock Bottom

Moving along with our True Oldies, I am gonna open up this chapter with another interpretation of that old chestnut, Summertime- this one from 1960, by the group that did the original Barbara Ann- long before the Beach Boys.
Then a not so well known Summer song by a cat named Elvis Presley.
I hear he did some things before 1964, although you’d never know it by today’s Oldies radio.
Got a song from Frankie Lymon’s brother that only serves to remind me…oh, never mind, lol!
Then a set of songs that were known as “grind” songs- very little movement of the feet, but the rest of the body was definitely in action.
We also called them “songs that kept the cleaners in business”, if you know what I mean!
All the groups’ names begin with a C oddly enough, and I threw in a rocker just for the hell of it.
These shows all prompted By Bruce Morrow taking my place on Sept.2 with our station’s Les Marshak.
Takes 2 guys to replace me- even just for a week!
I ended with a song I said needed no introduction, didn’t give it one, and never identified it or the next one.
For the interested or curious, they were the Del Vikings and the Edsels (bad name for a bad car!).
We will continue with more.

Here is the link to those antiquities:

Dear RJ,
The Elvis song was called Summer Kisses, Winter Tears.
An excellent song that fell through the cracks and was mostly ignore.
Thanks for listening my friend,

Enjoyed part 2 as well. I really liked the Elvis song. I'm listening at work so it's a little hit and miss, and I couldn't make out the title to the Elvis song, but it was quite good. Thanks for the show Mike.
