Thi edition of The Week That Was is brought to yoy by Pepsodent toothpaste. You’ll wonder where the yellow went when you brush your teeth with Pepsodent!
John Howell and I got talking about Pepsodent yesterday…
Happy Father’s Day to all you fathers, grandfathers, stepfathers, foster fathers, uncles, and mothers and grandmothers who have ended up doing the job of father. From 1969, The Winstons, “Color Him Father.”
Here’s the summary for last week.
- (Song Lyric) Sunday: Brenda Lee, “Ballin’ The Jack”
- Monday: Tommy Emmanuel, “Stay Close To Me”

- Thursday: Pierre Bensusan, “Silent Passenger”

We looked at kid actors and the records they made in their spare time. Some were good, some, not so good.
If you haven’t voted in this week’s battle, three songs named “Bluer Than Blue,” please do so, as I’ll be takllying the votes and announcing the winner tomorrow.
We were asked about motivational speakers, favorite flavors, what’s rustling in the bushes, and ideal temperatures. No deep questions about deep philosophical topics, which means this week we’ll probably really get slugged…
Ambrosia was the featured artist this week.
Discussed the joys of cat ownership.
We went into the pros and cons of riding versus driving.
We visited WKBW in Buffalo, New York, and recreated their Top 10 from 1959.
My original word, “Fizzies,” was being used, so I changed it to “jazz” and wrote a little about my love for it and about colors of noise.
Pretty standard week coming up. I’ll announce the winner of my latest Battle of the Bands tomorrow, as well as share some world music and answer Melanie’s questions. Tuesday will be the penultimate Two for Tuesday, because it moves to Fridays, becoming Five For Friday on July 10, replacing The Friday 5×2, which moves to Tuesday beginning July 7 and becomes Top Ten Tuesday. I’m waiting for prompts for most of the rest of the week. Stay tuned!
