Speaking of One-Hit Wonders...

Some of you may not be reading the comments from posts that I put up last October, so let me call your attention to this comment that was just posted in reference to last year's One-Hit Wonder Week:

Tom,

Thanks for the story. Mostly accurate, except that it was not the Brothers Righteous who suggested more current dead people, but their producers Lambert & Potter. I'll always be indebted for their contributions.
Your timing is interesting, as I'm about to release my first full length album in 28 years, probably before September. Please check alanoday.com in a couple weeks!
Chordially,
Alan O'Day


Alan O'Day! Far out! Maybe we'll hear from Peter McCann next!

He seems to regularly scan the net for his name, and I discovered to my embarrassment.

Scraps said...

er, "as I discovered".

I am dismayed to hear that you hate "Undercover Angel." What a cheerful little song.

I have emailed Alan, by the way to ask about the status of the victim in "Angie Baby." I'll post whatever response I get.

How would an ordinary OPC reader become aware of a new comment posted to an older item? I assume that we need to rely on you to bring comments of interest to our attention, as you did in this case.

And now, with Scraps's posting of something from his website, I realize that I have met this Scraps person. (I have a good memory; it was an Echo thing.)

OPS: Bringing good people together. Oor at least people. "together."

!

You do have a good memory; I was on Echo for maybe a year, ten years ago. And went to few events. Though I played in the Echo softball games for a few years.

And looking at your profile, it's like I've seen you at Barbes as well, since Velma and I were regulars there from the first night (we followed Jeffrey Cobb over there from the Ale House). We don't get out there much anymore, alas.

What is this "OPS" of which you speak?

ONE POOR SPELLER.
