While living in Tinsel Town, I had a 3 hour weekly Jazz radio show on KCSN
for 16 1/2 years titled "Bob Ringwald's Bourbon Street Parade."
On one show, I played nothing but cut after cut of "Royal Garden Blues." I
did not refer to the fact that I was repeating the same song over & over. I
would back announce the previous song & then announce the next one, just as
if it were a different song.
Of course, each recording was by a different band.
I can't remember how many cuts I played that day, maybe 35 or 40. I believe
that Listmate Stan Brager was my engineer at the time so maybe he remembers.
