Forgotten Hits: November 11th

Forgotten Hits: November 11th: Van Morrison performs his hit "Brown Eyed Girl" on American Bandstand.  Although this record will go on to become one of the most over-played songs in America, it will NOT be a hit in England.  This will also be Van’s only appearance ever on this program.   

Includes a couple of surveys, and you can listen to "Tapioca Tundra."  Probably been a while since you've heard that one.

Like, never.

Actually, no; "Tapioca Tundra" was the B side of the Monkees' hit single "Valleri," but when I tried it, I found I liked it much better than the other song. I even bought THE BIRDS, THE BEES & THE MONKEES CD just for that song, since I had long since lost the 45. Listened to TT as recently as a week or so ago.
