Neon Beat on Radio George - 6.10.13

On The Neon Beat this week, Juke 2: Barbra Streisand opens up the set with a "tailored" piece recalling the old NY neighborhood, "Sam You Made The Pants Too Long." Dean Martin follows up with a song, that well could have been called "thematic" for the man's ongoing personae, "Little Ol Wine Drinker Me." Listen to a cool memory by Petula Clark, "There's A Cat In The Window." Hear a couple of Frank Sinatra songs in this set, "S'posin" from his "Swinging Session LP" and a film song "Forget Domani. Hear a lush version of "Stardust" by Nat King Cole. Listen to Tom Jones, The Drifters, Al Martino, Louis Armstrong and more.

On The Neon Beat this week, Jukebox 3: Georgia Gibbs launches this hour with a rousing version of "Kiss Of Fire." Then we grab a flight to the moon with Tony Bennett. Listen to Frank Sinatra sing a good old sing along standard "I've Got The World On A String." Enjoy a fun novelty number by the great Leroy Anderson that became the theme for The Late Show in the 1960's, "the Syncopated Clock." We'll play another great period instrumental by Percy Faith, "The Song From Moulin Rouge." Hear Kay Starr's "Side by Side," Laugh a little with the Playmates "Beep Beep." Johnny Mathis, Eartha Kitt, Dean Martin and more.
