Music on Only A Game 11/7/09

Each week Only A Game's Senior Producer Gary Waleik chooses what you hear in-between segments.  This week he says, "Apologies for the weak musical showing this time. I promise to do better next week," so you know this week's music blog will be spectacular.  Here's what you heard:

New York, New York by Eddie Layton (from “Ya Gotta Have Heart”, Silva America, 1997)
Gary's Take: The late Eddie Layton never got to flaunt his Hammond organ in The House That Nick Swisher Built, but I bet he was there in spirit.

 Blue and White by the USC Trojan Marching Band (from Fight Songs, Delta, 1989)
Gary's Take:  If blue and white are Duke’s colors, why aren’t they also The White Devils?

The Riviera Set by Syd Dale (from Music for TV Dinners: The ‘60’s, Scamp Records, 1997)
Gary's Take:  This also happens to be the music favored by the OAG staff when we relax with our brandy snifters and Cubans. I mean cigars, not expatriate pitchers.

You Drive Me Ape (You Big Gorilla) by The Dickies (from The Incredible Shrinking Dickies, A+M, 1979)
Gary's Take:  A wonderful bit of nonsense from the masters of nonsense. This track sounds every bit as absurd as it did 30 years ago.

This program aired on November 6, 2009. The audio for this program is not available.
