3 Chords & the Truth: Tunes from wonderland

If you're younger than your Mighty Favog, who apparently is something of a fossil, you probably don't remember when your TV picture being in living color was a pretty big (and expensive) deal.

It was a glorious entertainment development way back when, during the Age of Wonders, when the wonders of technology were spaced out just enough for us to appreciate them all.

Now, it seems, I'm always at least one wonder behind. Because fossil, no doubt.

Too, the wonders don't seem so wonderful anymore. Just kind of "meh" as wonders go. Maybe we just have too many of them too fast today. Maybe I'm just jaded in my old age.

And that, Cap, is kinda, sorta the inspiration for this episode of 3 Chords & the Truth.

THUS, we start the Big Show with seriously wonderful music from the time when color TV was a true wonder. And, looking back on that era, so was the music. Especially our opener this week, Lenny Dee's wondrous 1966 take on Chris Montez's fantastic 1965 take on Petula Clark's 1965 original of "Call Me."

And if it's possible, the program just might get better from there. A little trippy at times, too.

So, that's about all I have to say about that. Just do yourself a huge favor and listen. Preferably on one of those massive 1960's console stereos. Those things were awesome.

It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.
