This week, the annual Potpourri show features early songs Mick Jagger and Keith Richards gave away to friends and other artists, including Gene Pitney, Del Shannon, Adrienne Poster, Marianne Faithfull and Cliff Richard. The second segment highlights Jackie & Gayle, a long-forgotten female duo with an interesting story that belies their lack of chart success.
Potpourri continues with the "original" Knack, a late 1960s psych-pop band whose name was later revived in the 1970s. This is not the "My Sharona" band! The final segment features a six-pack of tunes honoring "The Working Girls," featuring The Box Tops, Jethro Tull, Queen, Lou Reed, and a couple of surprises.
El Chicano's take on Van Morrison's "Brown-Eyed Girl" is the Cover of the Week, a double-shot of the Young Rascals precedes a holiday classic from Stan Freberg, and the Vintage Tunedex features the New Musical Express Top 10 for the week of November 25, 1964.
So, for a different spin on the golden oldies and regional hits that time forgot, join Daniel on Sunday, December 1, for two-plus hours of music educational fun on Rock and Roll 101, now in High Fidelity! Class is in session at 6 p.m. Mountain Standard Time, on KQCK-Live Internet Radio, Queen Creek, Arizona.
