    1. Steam was an appropriate name for the band, because they were just a bunch of studio musicians and there wasn’t actually a band until this proved to be a hit, and none of the guys on the record were part of the traveling band. I like to think that Nancy Faust, who played the organ at White Sox games for many years, helped keep this a popular song, because she’d play it whenever an opposing pitcher was knocked out of the game, especially after he had been roughed up by the South Side Hi Men…

    1. Nancy Faust, who was the organist for the White Sox, would play it as an opposing pitcher was leaving the mound after being roughed up. I think they still do it even though she retired (after 40 or so years; she was young when she started).

  1. Funny this was going to be the B side… fun song…I remember our high school band doing this one.
