Transportation show

This week's show is made for those who are always on the go, it's "Transportation" from October 14, 1972. Here's the gang on three-wheeled bicycles with the opening number, "Gotta Travel On".

Once again, our old favorites bring a show that always warm up even the coldest of winters, such as Guy & Ralna's rendition of "Do Lord", Jimmy Roberts with "Arrivederci Roma" and Tanya with the ever popular "Walkin' The Floor Over You".

Next, we join the gang for a nice, relaxing boat ride with "Cruisin' Down the River" with Myron Floren at the squeezebox and some fine dancing by Cissy King, Bobby Burgess and Mary Lou Metzger.

The band gave us some very fine instrumentals, such as "Lazy River", "The Gypsy In My Soul" and a fine rendition of "Wheels" with a great guitar solo by Neil Levang.

Arthur Duncan once again did some fine tap dancing, to the tune of "The Happy Wonderer", plus great solos by Norma Zimmer with "Beyond the Sea" and Ken Delo with "Wagon Wheels".

And here are some of the most gorgeous hobos ever to hop a train with "Waitin' for the Evening Train" followed by Bobby Burgess' and Jack Imel's routine to "Walkin". Add some Sandi & Sally telling everyone that "We Can Fly" along with a great closing number in "These Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines" and you got a show that has wheels!

Mary Lou interviewed Ken Delo this week, he talked about his time in showbiz as part of the team of "Delo and Daly", and how they were the biggest thing to hit Australia since Robert Menzies, The Croc Hunter and Aussie Rules Football. He also talked about his growing up in Detroit, just sixty miles north of here in Toledo!

Next week's show is a salute to "The World" from 1974, stay warm and have a great Super Bowl Sunday everyone!
