Hooked on your show

I became hooked on your show several months ago and continue to be entertained by the unique videos you offer, in addition to your patter which is very different from any other’s. You have an infectious laugh and you also have a great show!
I am wondering if you can identify a song I heard only once while on leave in mid 60′s in Seattle Washington area. It was a response to, “There coming to take me away Ha Ha” One line was ” they took my brother away yesterday. He was a babbling idiot.”
I have found nothing. I have searched for it since the late sixties after I returned stateside and have found nothing.

NOTE TO DAVID: First, for those listeners who aren’t familiar with the original song by Napoleon XIV
There were a couple of response songs. It’s probably the one you’re looking for. “I’m Happy They Took You Away, Ha-Haaa!” was recorded by a female performer named Josephine XV, and was a featured track on the 1966 Warner Bros. album.
Jerry Samuels wrote and recorded a sequel to the original record during 1990, named “They’re Coming To Get Me Again, Ha Haaa!” (which concerns Napoleon XIV relapsing to madness after being released from an insane asylum), vended by the company “Collectables”

I DO NOT KNOW IF YOU REMEMBER ME AND DAN, BUT WE MET AT SMART AND FINAL. WE WENT TO THE ZOO TO SEE YOU, BUT BY THE TIME WE GOT THERE IT WAS TOO LATE.
DAN AND I GO TO ROMANO’S MACARONI GRILL IN NORTHRIDGE AND THERE IS THIS VERY SWEET WOMEN NAMED KELLY. SHE SAYS SHE’S YOUR FAVORITE WAITRESS. AND I CAN SEE WHY. SHE IS REALLY OUTGOING AND FUN TO BE WITH AND A VERY NICE PERSON.
MAYBE WE WILL GO TO EAT THERE SOMETIME AGAIN SOON.

Sail On Sailor
Recieved: May 30, 2010 at 5:16 p.m.
I just about lost control of steering tonight. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing — Carl Wilson’s Sail On Sailor, a fantastic song. Carl and Dennis Wilson were good friends of mine.There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of them. I heard Carl perform Sailor live in 1997 at a Fourth of July concert — his last summer tour before his death in 1998. His health was deteriorating, and he had to sit during most of the show, but did manage to stand for the whole song. Hearing it tonight brought back so many memories.
Now — if you would play Mike Love’s Sumahama (1979), I’d be so surprised I’d have to pull off the road.

I listen to you on the weekends on Earth but is there a station you are on that I can listen during the week?
NOTE TO LARRY: There are more than 50 stations that carry my syndicated shows now. One of them in Savannah, Georgia actually carries my shows 7 days a week. Here’s the link http://www.big983.com/

I am an old KHJ listening fan. Will there be a boss radio reunion one day on KRTH for fun, and will KRTH bring back a doo wop weekend?
keep rockin Charlie!
NOTE TO FRED: It would be a little difficult to do a Boss Radio Reunion, since myself, Humble Harve, Sam Riddle and Johnny Williams are the only ones still alive from the line-up I joined in 1967,
As for a doo wop weekend, you never know…

I wanted to thank you for not only sending the mp3 file, and burning the CD for me, but also for giving me the chance to talk about my Dad. My mother and I finally buried his remains last week, so it was a rough time for me. It was such a pleasure to finally meet you- everyone at Black Card Radio was so welcoming and accommodating. The whole interview lifted my spirits. So once again, thank you.
I wish you a wonderful week, and please keep me posted about the interview on YouTube.
NOTE TO CHANELLE AND LISTENERS: HERE’S THE INTERVIEW WITH CHANELLE!
Hazel Eyes Song
Recieved: May 22, 2010 at 1 p.m.
From: Madeline Carrozzi
Re: A lady looking for song about hazel eyes. I remember a song that was called “Jealous Eyes or My Jealous Eyes” (very old song). Part of the words in song said “my eyes change from blue to green.” Do you think that is what she is looking for? Don’t remember female artist who sang the song… it goes way back to maybe 50-60′s.
NOTE TO MADELINE: Actually it turned out the song I figured out for her was Kelly Clarkson’s hit back in 2005, “Behind These Hazel Eyes” that she was trying to remember.
Kevin Costner & BP oil spill

One morning I turned on KBIG, as usual, & no Charlie Tuna. What!!?? Shortly after the new staff started (yuk!), I began looking for a new station. Luckily it was a Saturday, and as the radio dial tuned into KEARTH, there you were! Oh, happy day! What a wonderful voice you have! You always have interesting stories to share, and your response to your listeners is uplifting and refreshing in these stressful times. KEARTH is now programmed #1 on all my radios.
It seems that you like the unique, so I thought you’d be interested in these two Kevin Costner stories:
