We've got all sorts of ditties this week on CSTM, but certainly need to salute Ellie Greenwich, who wrote, co-wrote & produced some of the 20th century's boppiest & zaniest songs; songs that kept getting sung by The Ramones, Tiny Tim, The Cramps & Alyssa Milano well after The Ronettes, The Butterflys, Darlene Love, & The Shangri-Las finished topping the charts.
Plus we'll need to pay a little attention to the plight of dogs in summer & the embarassment of the owners that kill them.
recorded in the studios of WRIR 97.3 FM Richmond VA
