A Short Dose of "Helping Out Our Readers"

Boy does your copy of Loop De Loop need to be upgraded! Leave it to the Diamond record collector to set you on the path to the perfect copy!
Trivia: Those are the Bobbettes (of Mr. Lee fame) on background vocals! They had several releases on Diamond records around the same time. Also sending you their Diamond release, Sandman.

Actually, David Lewis sent that clip in with his comment so I just used his copy ... but thanks for the upgrade ... and the trivia lesson! (kk)

You will, of course, remember the hit "Betty Davis' Eyes." One day, while listening to the local college station, WCWM, Williamsburg, VA, I heard a parody called "Marty Feldman's Eyes." I was unable to call the station, and I never heard the record again anywhere. But it was unforgettable. Do you know who recorded "Marty Feldman's Eyes?"
Chris Astle
Sure do ... "Marty Feldman Eyes" was a clever novelty parody done by comedian Bruce "Baby Man" Baum. Although it never officially charted, it did get a bit of airplay for a few weeks back in the early '80's ... and was a regular feature on Dr. Demento's program, too! (Naturally, we've got it to share with you again today!!!) kk

I logged onto Hit Parade Radio to hear Larry Lujack but he was nowhere to be found. Do you know in what time slot he appears? I miss hearing him!
Steve Davidson
Lujack won't officially be on the air until September ... right now they're just getting the stream up and running in the hopes of lining up radio stations around the country to carry the programming. Stay tuned to these pages and we'll keep you posted as things develop further. (kk)

Wow! It's already been three years since Paul McCartney was 64!!!
We told you yesterday in our Leftovers Page about Macca's upcoming concerts at Citi-Field in New York City next month. Now comes word of another one of those awesome Liverpool Tours offers. Sounds like they've secured some of the highest price tickets for Paul McCartney's Saturday Night Show at Citi-Field. (July 18th)
They've packaged it together with a New York City Walking Tour of Beatles Sites, one night's deluxe hotel accomodations and a souvenir gift. Their note reads:
Along with the premium concert tickets to Paul's historic return to the NY Mets' (new) baseball field, you will also get to see many famous sights related to Beatles history including: Strawberry Fields and the Imagine mosaic in Central Park, the Dakota, Plaza Hotel, Ed Sullivan Theater, Radio City Music Hall, Carnegie Hall, Manny's Music, former U.S. Apple offices & much more.
You will follow in the Beatles' Manhattan footsteps! Visit the places that link Paul, John, George & Ringo with the Big Apple! This 2 1/2 hr tour is professionally guided, and is filled with historic & fun important Beatles facts along this long and winding road walking tour. There are also trivia questions and prizes along the way, so plan on spending a few Fab Four Fun hours in New York City. For

further information, email
Sounds like a blast! (Heck, I'll bet scalper ticket prices are going for two to three times what these guys want for the entire tour package!!!) Meals and transportation are not included ... and there are only 20 spaces available ... but if this sounds like Macca Mecca to you, drop them an email for all the details. (kk)
