WPON-AM 1460 - Insane World Of Mike Sain - Wacky Wednesday - June 6, 2006

The "Insane World Of Mike Sain" airs every Wednesday at 9:00 AM Eastern Time on WPON-AM 1460 Detroit. Today's theme was "Wacky Wednesday" which featured various wierd novelty and comic tunes from the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. Mike played many long-forgotten one hit wonders plus some other early gems that offer a rare glimpse into the zany sides of Rod McKuen, Merv Griffin, and Burt Bacharach. He also played Sly and the Family Stone's "Hot Fun In The Summertime" in memory of Billy Preston who passed away yesterday. In addition to his many hits from 1969-1982 on both the R&B and Pop/Rock charts, the multi-talented Preston was a prolific studio musician who played keyboards for Sly and the Family Stone and many other groups.

All but three of this morning's songs are included on the CD, Golden Age of American Rock'N'Roll: Special Novelty Edition.
