Take a look at the label to the left. You now know as much as I do about this single. You also know why I had to have it when I saw it at a record show.
Here's the General Tire theme in disco and non-disco versions. Why? We'd need to travel back in time to the 1970s to find the answer. Maybe you got a copy free when you bought a new set of radials. Maybe it was sent out to retailers to provide pleasant background music while customers waited for installation of their new all-weather tires. It obviously wasn't sent out to radio stations, as it has "Not for Broadcast" in large, nasty letters on both sides. Not that I pay attention to things written in large, nasty lettering.
Setting the whys aside, one listen to the disco General theme answers the question of which brand of tires Shaft prefers. I've included Side 2 for the sake of completion--it's a very easy listening, almost MUZAK take on the theme.
Program and Download Notes
I've noticed that EggDisk tends to be a bit slow before 12:30PM Eastern Time. If you're having problems downloading, try a little later in the day.
Tomorrow night's show will be about baseball, and will be a bit on the talky side. I'll be joined in the studio by Sean Lily and, perhaps, a special MVP guest from the world of comedy who just got back from performing in the Aspen Comedy Arts Festival. I've got some great baseball-related oddities to share as well, including Bruce Springstone and a disco tune about Pete Rose.
