Catch the new episode of Dave’s Gone By (#403) "A Goodman is Easy to Find" LIVE, this Saturday, December 8, 10am-1pm(MT), streaming on UNC Radio.
Featuring: Rabbi Sol Solomon chats with JON GOODMAN, son of novelty-record pioneer Dickie Goodman. Plus: Inside Broadway, Saturday Segue, Bob Dylan - Sooner & Later and more.
Says Dave about this week's show, "Dickie Goodman's 'The Flying Saucer' was the monster hit of 1956, and his comedy style was an important ancestor of the sampling and mash-ups found in today's pop. Not only that, his gambling, lousy timing and self-inflicted fatal gunshot wound seem to be a major influence on the NFL."
