The Ronnie McDowell Show

In 1977, country artist and songwriter Ronnie McDowellcaptured lightning in a bottle when he co-wrote and recorded“The King Is Gone,” a moving tribute to Elvis that topped the country and pop charts and sold five million copies. Mike Curb, president of Curb Records, thinks that Ronnie may have done it again with his new song “Hey, Mr. Oilman.”

The song, about the high cost of gasoline and what it is doing to the American heartland and its people, has struck an immediate chord with people across the nation and every day excitement about it continues to build. The single will appear on Ronnie’s upcoming Curb release CD, entitled Hey, Mr. Oilman.

The Dixie Cups

The Dixie Cups hail from New Orleans and are best known for their hit song Chapel of Love.  The three girls who comprised the group were Barbara Ann Hawkins, her sister Rosa Lee Hawkins and their cousin Joan Marie Johnson. They were originally known as Little Miss and the Muffets. The group was renamed the Dixie Cups, and their version of Chapel Of Love was released in 1964 on Red Bird. It became a huge international hit, a million seller, and a solid number one record in the United States.

The Dixie Cups added two more top forty hits in 1964, People Say and You Should Have Seen The Way He Looked At Me. When there was a pause in one of their recording sessions, the girls began a chanting song that they had learned in New Orleans called Iko Iko. It was a call-and-respond type of chant with some percussion in the background, and when they recorded it, it became their final top forty record, in the Spring of 1965.
