This song chronicles elation, although I suspect that the song is not one of James P.’s most lasting, and Bob Hayes looks more dour than thrilled. But no matter.

Carl Sonny Leyland, pianist extraordinaire, also has his own radio show. He creates it from his home and relies on his large collection of jazz, pop, and blues rarities, so it is worth tuning in to.
Marc Caparone tells me that it’s on the Paso Robles NPR radio station, KCBX, which streams it live on the web as well. Sonny broadcasts live on Friday nights at 8pm Pacific time. The link for the station: http://www.kcbx.org/ and the link for streaming:
Hey! Hey! Listen your cares away!
