I'll post a write-up on
Putney Swope some time later...

    (Here's where I cut-'n'-paste a clever YouTube comment while passing it off as my own...)

    Barack Sr. and Obama's Mama!

    But on the real... was that Ronnie Dyson?

    I remember "Putney Swope" from TV. Yeah, they actually showed it on a local D.C. independent station (Channel 20) when I was a kid. And it was quite a scan'lous event.

    ^ Wow, it was Ronnie Dyson. He had a few nice hit singles.

  3. The Obenson Report said...

    Yup, it was... not that I had any idea who he was until I read your comment. I had to look him up.

    Now I know... I'm listening to some clips of him on YouTube right now.

    ^ My favorite of Dyson's is "One Man Band." I relate to the lyrics totally.

    Anyways, I look forward to your full post on "Putney Swope."

    LOL! Irreverently hilarious lyrics!

    I STILL haven't seen Putney Swope!! It's been on my DVD rental list forever but still doesn't seem to be available here in the UK.

    Remind me next time I'm in your neck of the woods.
