    The initial episode of Duffy's Tavern, broadcast as part of Forecast, the NBC program that put on shows to gauge audience reaction. Duffy's passed the test and went on to a network run. Ed Gardner as Archie the bar keep mangles the King's English and the humor is genuinely off the wall. Good stuff.

    Old time remakes float my boat, because I can dance to them when all the DJ has, is some 80's hip hop.
    Ask a DJ for The Andrews Sisters and you will get a blank stare, ask for Candyman................
    Ask for a 1930's blues song and you will definitely get a blank stare, but ask for The Cherry Poppin' Daddies,
    You might be lucky with a Jackie Wilson request, but this guy will just blow you away.
    There is so much more.............but for now, just enjoy.

  10. Clancy Brothers -- Bringin' Home The Oil

    This is a very special nostalgia piece for me. The NBC News space coverage of the Apollo missions which I eagerly followed as a little guy was sponsored by Gulf Oil and I remember this commercial well from those historic TV broadcasts. In fact I practically knew this song by heart. At that time I couldn't decide whether I wanted to be an astronaut when I grew up or "a workin' on a tank ship" lol


    I'm an able-bodied sailor
    And I've often crossed the Line
    On whaling ships and sailing ships
    And ships of every kind
    But now I've got the very best job
    I've had for many a day
    I'm workin' on a tanker
    Bringin' oil to Bantry Bay

    Bringin' home the oil, me boys
    Bringin' home the oil
    Sailin' all around the world
    Bringin' home the oil
    A workin' on a tank ship
    Is very hard we toil
    A sailin' into Bantry Bay
    Bringin' home the oil

    She is the biggest ship, me lads
    That ever sailed the seas
    Yet graceful as a swan she goes
    We sail her at our ease
    From Araby around Cape Hope
    We proudly make our way
    To keep all Europe movin'
    From our base in Bantry Bay

    They're building other tankers now
    To speed more oil to you
    Universe Kuwait, me lads
    Japan and Portugal too
    Also the
    Universe Ireland
    I'm very proud to say
    Is among the giant ships
    That's bringin' oil to Bantry Bay

    "Osborne was Canadian and was the son of Lord Oliphant which made him the heir to a barony in Scotland. He started his bandleading career in 1924 and began to receive national recognition on network radio in 1929 when he took over for Rudy Vallee at New York's Heigh-Ho Club when Vallee left for Hollywood to star in the film The Vagabond Lover. Osborne retired from bandleading in 1957 and became the entertainment director at Harvey's Casino in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. " Dismuke

    Rundquist A-List Customer

    That's actually The Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem, if you want to get technical about it, though Makem would leave the group that year. The tune is from an old traditional called "The Gallant Forty-Twa" that they first recorded on 1964's "The First Hurrah!". Liam Clancy sang the tune on the record, but that's Tommy Makem on the commercial spot. Thanks for posting. I've never seen that before.
