October 7: The Good Life

We have a section of our music library containing a genre called “The Good Life”.  It’s a slew of cheesy, hokey music that ranges from Frank Sinatra to cat music to moog/accordian/string/swing versions of mainstream songs/artists to old-school TV commercials.

Needless to say, I enjoy The Good Life.  So I played a whole bunch of it during this show.  So much so that a listener called in and described the set as a “cheese fest”, suggesting a Good Life artist that I should dig up (Jim Nabors, who played Gomer Pyle in the Andy Griffith Show and struck out on his own as a singer).

There you have it.  Enjoy The Good Life.

Also, keep an ear out for a Senator performing the Star-Spangled Banner…and here is your quiz question: What kind of blades should children be careful of (“Remember – child safety is no accident!”)?
