D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: Rock n’ Roll

To me, records are about the joy of discovery. Gently placing the tiny needle in that delicate groove and waiting to see if it will be a HIT (yaaay!) or a MISS (boo!). But when it comes to records about comic strips, they’re all winners in my book. What’s not to like?

Here’s a rare and nifty number that I would give a 70 if I were on American Bandstand. It has a good beat and you can dance to it. (Thanks and a tip of the Hatlo hat to Mr. Craig Yoe for the generous gift of this classic wax.)


(click for a closer look)

That’s Larry Martin (who?) singing about some all-time great stars of the strips in this song called “Comic Strip Rock ‘N Roll” by Robert Ashley and his band. To hear this rarity, click on the bar below…


(if no bar appears please click here to listen)

Next Tuesday, tune in for more tunes!

Dick Tracy’s Chester Gould was awarded a plaque from The American Institute of Men’s and Boys’ Wear in 1957, for his “good grooming and his efforts to divest Young America of its thuggish, silver-riveted leather jackets!”

Pogo Schtick!

When Pogo ran for president in his comic strip, many readers planned on voting for the possum! Walt Kelly went on the radio urging listeners not to throw away their vote- Pogo’s campaign was just a joke!

Blandy And Dullwood!

After years of drawing Blondie, Chic Young (1901-1973) summed up the cartoonist’s lot: “Drawing a comic strip is very interesting in a dull, monotonous sort of way!”
