This past Sunday, good old Bob Stroud, on his Rock and Roll Roots show on WDRV, the Drive in Chicago did his annual Summer Show, playing the songs that make the season so enjoyable (although I like fall just as well).
Unfortunately, I overslept and missed the first of the three hours, but he does have a set list, so I got those songs.
All comments are mine.
ALL SUMMER LONG-- BEACH BOYS-- The original Boys of Summer.
CRUISIN' MUSIC-- RASPBERRIES-- Not really familiar with this one.
A SUMMER SONG-- CHAD AND JEREMY-- Or was it by Peter and Gordon? Who can tell these two groups apart except their mothers.
UNDER THE BOARDWALK-- JOHN MELLANCAMP-- Singing about what is probably one of the most gross places in the world if you've ever smelled wet sand that receives no sunlight. And we're not even going to go into what people drop on the boardwalk that finds its way between the cracks.
REMEMBER (WALKIN' IN THE SAND)-- SHANGRI-LAS-- Love the start to this one.
CALIFORNIA SUN-- RIVIERAS-- Nothing like a good California song by a band out of Indiana.
In a Summer Mode. --RoadDog
