I think Burt Bacharach would have been very happy to write "French Navy". That is some really good songwriting.
Sat. 1/12/13 11:22am
It don't get more catchy and melodic than the French Navy (the song, not the martial entity).
Sat. 1/12/13 11:28am
Doggone it, missed Ken Nordine! Love "Colors" in particular and word jazz in general.

Sat. 1/12/13 12:44pm
Great song. Ever hear the other Jack Webb "sing" Try a Little Tenderness? If not, you should.
Sat. 1/12/13 12:45pm
the Montclair Times article spelled Monkees wrong. Its a great piece, though.
Sat. 1/12/13 12:47pm
P- will check it out - email it to me if you have it
ME - they're fine - but they are of the patty of pressed together rice and spices - and I like the fake meat kind better - but the "garden burger" model is the one most restaurants serve - ALSO dont like their fries or shakes....

Love the "safe" play of "Bright Future in Sales". Thanks for at least getting it played. Fountains of Wayne are terrific! Replayed your show with the interview from last year just this past week.
