Up The Line – October 18, 2010

October 18. We’re supposed to be well into spring, and pretty well into summer. Would somebody please mention that to the weather?

That aside, today is the birthday of Bobby Troup. He was in the original M*A*S*H movie, and had a major starring role in the TV series Emergency.

But he was also a songwriter, and wrote Route 66 for Nat King Cole, so that was one of the songs played tonight.

I also threw in versions by my dearly departed friend, Rod (Beachhead) Jeffrey and another version by the Brian Setzer Orchestra.

Add some Eric Clapton with Steve Winwood at Maddison Square Garden and a touch of Jeff Healey, and you have a feel for where tonight’s show went.

Also, just a short note to mention Al Britton from the Bondi Cigars, who’s not been feeling well the last few weeks, and to wish him well. Let’s hope that you’re back up and about real soon now.
