The Neon Beat on Radio George - 1.18.17

On The Neon Beat this week, Jukebox 1: Going into the new week, still, with some minor internet issues. Which we hope to have resolved by mid week. Bear with us as we migrate Radio George to a new hosting site to smooth out the dropouts. Juke 1 begins with The Lettermen singing a great Paul Anka song, “Put Your Head on my Shoulder.” Then we track a bit o-grease as we spin “Little Darlin” by the Diamonds. Perry Como follows with “Jukebox Baby” and a hit song by The McGuire Sisters. Enjoy a little classic folk with Peter Paul and Mary with their version of “Lemon Tree.” Dean Martin performs one of his hit standards, “You’re Nobody Til Somebody Loves You,” and then we “Let Ourselves Go” as we play a swinging version of an Irving Berlin song sung by Ella Fitzgerald. Enjoy a Broadway favorite by Robert Goulet from “Porgy and Bess.” Frank Sinatra laments a “Same Old Saturday Night.” Barbra Streisand sings a film standard, “Taking a Chance on Love.” We’ll team up Doris Day and Buddy Clark with a 1947 tease called “Love Somebody (but I won’t say who). Enjoy period instrumentals with Herb Alpert and the TJB, and the soulful clarinet of Acker Bilk. Hear hit songs by Sam Cooke, Patti Page, Lou Rawls and more.
