Magic Whistle Radio Hour 188

Things I've collected over the years or acquired on mixtapes and comps or gathered from the internet or the library or my parents' attic. The different sources are the reason for the volume disparity. I make no claims to "discovering" or "owning" anything. Probably neither do you. It's whatever I feel like playing that week. Every Saturday. No repeats. Things that may or may not be familiar. Who knows? The time's next to each song in case you don't like something or it's icky or if you don't want your kids to hear it. Don't let offense at one song cloud your impression of the curation as a whole Past weeks here too. Just type "Audio" in the search engine. Or if you're too lazy to press a button more than once, here's everything up to January 2018. You don't get the all playlists, though. You can right-click this if you want to save a zip file of this one (containing an mp3 of the file) for later. Here what information I was able to find:

0:00 THE STARLETTES- Jungle Love (1958)
2:19 CAROLE ROBERT & THE IMPROVISTES- Le Fruit Defendu (1966)
4:00 TIFTON SINGERS- Kid Stuff
6:02 CLIFF WARWICK & THE DOLLY BEATS- Sindy (1966)
“Two years ago' Cliff Warwick was a second year art student at a Liverpool art school. At the end of the term Cliff was in charge of the big Student's Ball. Because all the good groups were unobtainable, Cliff was stuck for music. Cliff and his mates decided they would do a few numbers themselves. They clicked—and that was the beginning of The Dollybeats!
“They were such a success at the Student's Ball,that someone asked them to play one night at a fabulous all night coffee bar in Liverpool.
“A talent scout just happened to be there the night Cliff and the Dollybeats played there. He was so impressed, he signed them up—there and then—to do a tour with one of the big groups! It was during this tour that Sindy first heard about Cliff and the Dollybeats, When you hear this record, you'll find out just how Sindy got to meet them personally. How they liked Sindy so much, they wrote a song just for her.
“Sindy is thrilled with the song and she thinks Cliff Warwick and the Dollybeats are great. When you play this record, you'll think so too!
”The name of this group and the names of the members are fictitious and if anyone considers he has been defamed by the use of his name then the supposed defamation is entirely unintentional”
