Catch the new episode of Dave’s Gone By (#508 – “Winning Streak”) – LIVE, this Saturday, May 9, 9am(Mountain)/11am(Eastern) streaming on UNC Radio (www.uncradio.com).
Featuring: Rabbi Sol Solomon chats with legendary songwriter RAY STEVENS (Everything is
Beautiful, The Streak). Plus: Greeley Crimes & Old Times, Saturday Segues (Billy Joel, In the News), Inside Broadway, Wretched Pun of Destiny (Larry David), Dylan – Sooner & Later (Ray words).
Says Rabbi Sol Solomon about this week’s show, “The year was 1974. Naked people were running across college campuses, the Oscars, the Super Bowl, Yom Kippur services… These `streakers’--most of whom were men, goddammit--were immortalized by Ray Stevens in his novelty hit, `The Streak,’ which caused even more people to take up the pastime. I will beg Mr. Stevens, therefore, to write a song called `The Worshipers,’ about nubile stewardesses who have a compulsion to seduce rabbis. Worth a shot, no?”
