REPLAY- This summer (2014) marks the 30th anniversary of the writing and recording of the original "Blow Me"!
Hello Music Lovers-
There’s a song that has faked out unsuspecting wedding guests and juke box fans for years and has closed an untold number of bars across the country each night since it’s release as a 45rpm single in 1984.
Join me and listen to Song Snatch #114, to travel back to a time when slow dancing to the big bands was king, make it a ladies (or gentleman’s) choice, and listen to the very first song I (Red Peters) ever recorded with The Babe Marino Orchestra and The Alan Pinchloaf Singers, “Blow Me (You Hardly Even Know Me)” !
(episode running time- 3 minutes and 26 seconds)
(You can hear more of my songs and download them at iTunes and wherever fine music is sold; also at www.redpeters.com and www.oglio.com, and sing-a-long to all your favorites at www.redpeterskaraoke.com)
