WACKY WEDNESDAY: Uncle Junior is 90!



Dominic Chianese, who played Corrado "Junior" Soprano in The Sopranos was born this day, February 24, 1931in New York City.

Happy birthday, Uncle Junior!

Though mostly known as an actor, serious Soprano fans know Chianese is a talented singer as well. Before his success in acting he also knocked around New York bars and coffee houses. He was master of ceremonies on open mike night at Gerdes Folk City in Greenwich Village. 

In the below scene from The Sopranos, Uncle Junior showed off his vocal talent:

Here's a little song from Chianese that Mafia movie fans should recognize

Here's a duet with Raul Malo of The Mavericks

To conclude, here's Chianese singing an Elvis/Hank Snow song. 

Buon Compleanno, Dominic!

THROWBACK THURSDAY: The Greatest Polish-American Country Star

 

Pee Wee King performing in front of Wisconsin's largest cactus  

Not all country stars come from the South. Hell, Hank Snow, who was born and raised in Nova Scotia,  knew a lot more about squid jigging than cotton picking, could have told you that.

Similarly Julius Frank Anthony Kuczynski -- born 107 years ago today -- wasn't a native son of Old Dixie. He was a Polish kid from Wisconsin, the son of polka musician. His first musical gig was in his dad's polka band.

But he went on to fame and glory in country music under the name Pee Wee King. His best known song, written with his musical partner Redd Stewart, was that beautiful "Tennessee Waltz." (I can't help but wonder whether the song would have become as famous if he's called it "Wisconsin Waltz.")

From his biography on the Country Music Hall of Fame website:

He changed his name to King (after the then-popular polka performer Wayne King) and formed his own high school band, Frankie King & the King’s Jesters. In 1933 young Frankie King joined the Badger State Barn Dance and soon had his own radio show on WJRN in Racine.

King’s lucky break came in the spring of 1934, when he met promoter J. L. Frank. He moved with Frank to Louisville in 1934 to back up Gene Autry for a time,  joined Frankie More’s Log Cabin Boys as accordionist on WHAS radio, and in 1936 married Frank’s stepdaughter Lydia.

In 1936 King was in Knoxville performing on WNOX. In 1937 he formed the Golden West Cowboys and moved to Nashville to begin a ten-year run on WSM’s Grand Ole Opry, with the exception of 1940, when he worked primarily out of Louisville. In 1941–42 he and his band were featured with the Camel Caravan, a WSM touring company that presented some 175 shows at military installations in the United States and Central America.  At various times his band included Eddy Arnold, Redd Stewart, Ernest Tubb, Cowboy Copas, and Minnie Pearl.

After joining the Grand Ole Opry in June 1937, King helped introduce an array of new instruments and sounds to that program’s stage, including the trumpet, drums, and the electric guitar. In addition, he dressed his band members in spiffy western outfits designed by Hollywood tailor Nudie Cohn. His nattily attired Golden West Cowboys generally produced a smooth and danceable sound during their heyday in the 1940s; in the 1950s they even branched out briefly into mild rockabilly.

Here are a few of Pee Wee's performances, starting with his hit, "Slow Poke."

Here's his version of the country classic "Bonaparte's Retreat." (Click link for more on that song.)

Finally here are two of King's best known songs, "Tennessee Waltz" and "You Belong to Me" with Redd Stewart on vocals.

Pee Wee died in 2000 at the age of 86. The accordion fell out of favor in country music. But there was real power in his music.

Happy Birthday, Mr.  Kuczynski!

WACKY WEDNESDAY: R&B Inspired by Children's Music


Bob E. Soxx & The Blue Jeans

I owe this Wacky Wednesday post to a veteran rock 'n' roll disc jockey and Facebook friend of mine known as Truly Judy. She recently posted a 1963 Top 40 list from a Kentucky radio station, WKLO that contained a couple of songs that I'd been thinking of lately that basically were soulful renditions of children's songs. I'd often thought of these two together, and realized they were pre-Beatles early '60s numbers. But not until I saw that chart did I realize they were popular during the same week in January 1963.

Here's the higher ranking tune at Number 5 -- at least in Louisville that week -- by a guy called Johnny Thunder (not to be confused with Johnny Thunders!). Listen, then go take a bath!

And coming in at Number 14 -- at least in Louisville that week -- was "Zip-a-Dee-Doo -Dah" by Bob E. Soxx & The Blue Jeans, who sound far more hip than Uncle Remus did in Song of the South.

But Thunder and Soxx weren't the only R&B singers to take a children's story or nursery rhyme into the realm of rock 'n' roll. 

Here are The Coasters gooding Mother Goose.


And here's LaVern Baker with an ode to a couple of characters from Alice in Wonderland.

THROWBACK THURSDAY: Songs for Patty

 On this day in 1974 years ago, members of a violent, ragtag bunch of self-styled revolutionaries called the Symbionese Liberation Army kidnapped Patricia Campbell Hearst, the 19-year-old granddaughter of William Randolph Hearst, setting off a tragic and bizarre series of events that turned into something of a bad action flick crossed with a twisted soap opera when Patty later announced to the world she was renaming herself "Tania" and was joining her captors and started taking part in bank robberies.

Those were the daze ...

So here's a musical salute, to sweet Patty, starting with this delightful ditty from the late great Warren Zevon. It's the first time -- only time? -- I heard her name in a song. (This version is from Late Night with David Letterman in 2002, about a year before Zevon died.) I've always wondered if Patty Heart


Back in 1987, Camper Van Beethoven released the mock-ode "Tania" on their album Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart.


A couple of years before Camper's tune, The Misfits also released a Patty song on their compilation  Legacy of Brutality. It was called "She."

Though her actually name is never mentioned, the lyrics, by Glenn Danzig, made it obvious who the song was about:

She walked out with empty arms
Machine gun in her hand
She is good and she is bad
No one understands

She walked in in silence
Never spoke a word
She's got a rich daddy
She's her daddy's girl
 
This video consists of actual security camera footage of Tania in action:


UPDATED! Thanks to Tommy T. who reminded me of this song a few hours after I originally posted. It's not about Patty, but two loveable gals named Judy and Jackie who "went down to Frisco, 
joined the SLA ..."


This last video, featuring L7's song in John Waters' movie Serial Mom, doesn't actually have anything to do with Patty, except that she appeared in that movie, as well as several other Waters movies. She struck up a lifelong friendship with the filmmaker that's actually kind of touching. In Serial Mom she portrayed a juror who is murdered by Kathleen Turner for the offense of wearing white after Labor Day.
