Terry Knight, Don Gardner, and Covers By Tom Jones - Hippie Love Turbo Radio Show - Code Word "Cardoon"

On this episode of Hippie Love Turbo, on KUCR 88.3 FM I kept the talking parts pretty brief, so here is a quick rundown on some of the stuff I talked about:

I started the show with Terry Knight and The Pack's song How Much More and I mentioned that the group had a hit with their version of I (Who Have Nothing) which was also covered by Ben E. King and, perhaps more famously, Tom Jones. Here's a neat video of the group making a television appearance back in 1966. During the video, Terry is briefly interviewed as he talks about being from Flint, Michigan before the group "performs" on some bleachers.

Later on, you heard Don Gardner perform My Baby Likes To Boogaloo and, much like Terry Knight, Gardner also performed a song that Tom Jones covered. However, unlike Terry Knight and The Pack, Don Gardner co-wrote his hit, I Need Your Lovin'. My favorite version of the song, beyond the original, is Otis Redding's version from his first album Pain In My Heart.

When I played Gary Indiana's own Oscar Hamod and The Majestics' No Chance Baby, I talked about how they performed a fuzzed out psychedelic version of House of The Rising Sun and how I'll probably play it sometime in the future. Well, if you are impatient, I suggest checking it out!

That's just about it for this episode! Thanks for reading the blog and be sure to listen over the air on KUCR 88.3FM on Saturdays at 9pm, or on Mondays at 10pm PST. You can also listen through KUCR.org, Radio Garden, or Tune-In.
