Oh baby baby baby..... goodness gracious, this
here's the Wolfman. I'm back and that's a natural fact, Jack! I'm subbing at the microphone for my good friend Shady Del Knight and I'm here to play stax o' wax at the greatest little station in the nation, SDMM!
Ask your pretty car hop "Do fries go with that shake?"
attention to these songs,
baby, or the Wolfman's
You know that the Wolfman is your doctor of love. Lo and behold, here's a young lady who writes her own prescriptions. It's Natalie Assenti aka Debbie Dovale, a 13 year old singer from the Pittsburgh area, performing the killer B side of her 1964 Roulette single "Come Home." Physician, heal thyself! Debbie Dovale sings "I'm My Own Doctor."
Now listen here, the Wolfman's got the hottest wax in the whole wide world! Up next, a Bronx girl group called the Chiffons. These ladies are best known for their hits "He's So Fine," "One Fine Day" and "Sweet Talkin' Guy." This one is a rare album track that knocks me out, a catchy keeper called "Every Boy and Every Girl."
You're diggin' the cat on the radio, Wolfman Jack, and I got a treat for you, a terrific girl group from Nashville,
a trio called the Avons. Singing a song written by Ronnie Wilkins of Ronny & the Daytonas, these ladies laid down a sizzling slab of Northern Soul
on the Groove label - "Push a Little Harder," baby! AHHHOOOOOH!!!
Awwww, if you got the curves, baby, I got the angles! This here's the Wolfman and I've got another treat that's hard to beat. It's sweet little Maureen Gray, the Philly filly who started making records at age 12 and went on to sing with Eric Clapton, David Bowie, George Harrison, John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Although it's autumn, Maureen reminds us that life's a beach and "Summertime Is Near!"
(Aug. 1963, B side of "The Story of My Love")
She's back! Donna Reed's daughter Mary Stone aka Shelley Fabares returns to SDMM with a killer cover of Neil Sedaka's big hit "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do." Take it away, Miss Fabares!
(from the September 1962 album
The Things We Did Last Summer)
Now hear this. It's blue-eyed soul songstress Babs Tino performing a song penned and produced by Burt Bacharach who worked with Babs on several of her recordings. The old Wolfman says
this pleasing platter is Babs' best - "Forgive Me!"
but I just did, baby! That wraps up this
edition of Clap For The Wolfman.
