Gary US Bonds recorded all those hits right down the street from my house!

Please ask Chad about the Dick Van Dyke show experience.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sat. 2/1/14 11:16am Ken From Hyde Park:

I see that Anna Gordy Gaye has died (age 92); sister of Motown founder Berry Gordy and ex-wife of Marvin Gaye. RIP
  Sat. 2/1/14 11:16am Julia:

I never realized how suggestive Brand New Key is.
  Sat. 2/1/14 11:25am AZ Dave:

"Actual" number one hit? I thought everything we heard on this show was???!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 2/1/14 11:27am Greg from Bloomfield:

OH YEAH. This song is the star of my jogging playlist.
  Sat. 2/1/14 11:38am myron feld:

I have this by The Orlons (and it's great). Was Gary's first?
  Sat. 2/1/14 11:39am myron feld:

Meaning "Not Me."
Avatar Sat. 2/1/14 11:54am Jimmy Wipper:

Maybe we can get a Gary US Bonds/Swamp Dogg reunion here in Norfolk. They'll be screaming out the windows from here to Willoughby!
  Sat. 2/1/14 12:03pm calzone!:

We had Gary US Bonds play our community college in 1981...he was riding high on the Springsteen connection at the time. When he arrived for the show I introduced myself as a the 'Concert Committee Chairperson'. He laughed, looked behind me, and exclaimed, "Chairperson, well you don't have such a flat ass"! Oh Gary, what a card! :) He put on a great show btw.
  Sat. 2/1/14 12:13pm mrrecord:

I'm confused...does he have writing credit? Does he have paperwork/contracts for anything? I license and publish music for a living
  Sat. 2/1/14 12:16pm mrrecord:

he can claim royalties going back 2 years in the US through ASCAP, BMI, or SESAC for any exploitation of his music (if he has writing credit). Other countries, longer
Avatar Sat. 2/1/14 12:17pm Michael Shelley:

he said he gets his publishing - but nothing from the master side
  Sat. 2/1/14 12:22pm drewo:

Saturday morning music history class with Michael Shelley - always a blast! Thanks Michael.
  Sat. 2/1/14 12:27pm mrrecord:

if he has paperwork re: master, he might be able to claim a lot more revenue legally.

Crap, what was Michaels email address again?!
  Sat. 2/1/14 12:43pm Toddophonic:

Was never the biggest Bill Withers fan, but that cut was great!
Avatar Sat. 2/1/14 12:43pm Uke Goldberg:

My typewriter-teleivison says Stevie Wonder and Hank Crosby wrote tears of clown as an instrumental and Smokey Robinson added lyrics later.
Avatar Sat. 2/1/14 12:45pm Uke Goldberg:

Opps, I see that wasn't tears of a clown you played but Gan't Get Used to Losing You :P

It must be my chronic traumatic encephalopathy acting up.
Avatar Sat. 2/1/14 12:50pm Joe B:

Great interview and show!
Avatar Sat. 2/1/14 12:53pm Joe Belock:

Hey Todd get to work! You got a show to prepare for!
