033 - The Clover and the Honey Bees

We start off with a rare track from Richmond, Virginia-based band the Clover. They recorded just two songs back in 1966, and this episode we play the "B" side of that lone 45 RPM.

Then we jump back to 1963 for a song by the Satellites. According to Arcania International's Brent Hosier (who researched and compiled the "Aliens, Psychos, and Wild Things CD series),  the Satellites were heavily influenced by the Beatles. I don't know, though. In the track we play, "Next Boy" sounds more like a Who song to me.

And in an interesting juxtaposition, we feature the girl group Honey Bees in the Soul Spotlight singing "It Happened on a Tuesday" then follow it with a song from Tuesday's Blues. Guess things didn't work out so well!

Remember -- you don't need an iPod to listen to a podcast. Just download it straight to your computer from this link!
