Seems almost sleazy that my nav skills allowed me to find so many recollections — all in one place, really! — of the sound over the car radios that I (and many friends, over the years) would hear in these fleshy ears, and then (of course, afterward, repeatedly) we could still “hear” them in our mind’s ears. If we had them, that is (they are). So here, for the summertime, I will start a sidebar-type of posting (not a regular post, but a page) on my tree. I am probably actually out of my tree, and now the tree is not where I left it (did I really?) sitting or standing, whichever that particular tree was doing.
Summertime Blues (from the “cheer”)
Ain’t no cure, not even “more cowbell” as it has been said or heard elsewhere (not saint elsewhere, the old hospital TV show). Then there was “Please, Mr. Custer” but it was not meant to please any “mister” or any sort of mist, for that matter. Mist is not much matter, since it is so floaty (not to mention moist). Floaty floatie flow-teeeeeee………
Now, this has (had, will have) no connection or association intended, other than the happenstance of remembering the really old old song earlier in the day and then the one that was done more than once but has that seasonal repeating-forever quality to it. What they have in common (mostly) is having been played on uncounted millions of AM radio sets around the world over the past decades, and they will (obviously if I can help it) continue to do so in some fashion, somewhere, someday.
Addendum #1 (say that 8 times really fast!)
See if the connection is obvious here, or if it is not, then what is it?
(this is 03 in 67, or BG-OTBJ would be another way to short-describe)

i JUST HEARD THIS IN sPANISH ON THE tv BY SOME “STRAIGHTJACKET”-NAMED GROUP ON THE LATE-NIGHT SHOW (cONAN o’bRIAN) WHERE SOME OF THE MUSICIANS WERE WEARING FACE-MASQUES (THIS ONE GUY LOOKED LIKE SOME cREATURE fROM tHE bLANK lAGOOF OR SOMETHING… IT WAS TASTY, i THOUGHT — PREVIDED OR PRESUMING THAT THIS IS WHAT WE COULD SAY IT IS THAT i DO, RATHER THAN SOMETHING OTHER THAT ACTUAL “THINKING” AS SUCH):
(OF COURSE i DO NOT MEAN i HEARD this VERSION, SINCE THIS IS THE ORIGINAL IN MY EXPERIENCE AND THAT MAY BE THE PROBLEM RIGHT THERE)
