Part 1 of my conversation with guest Ric Dube as we discuss an unlikely number one single from 1973. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from Pixies, Quasi, The Julie Ruin and Ghost Wave.

Show notes:

- Recorded at More Lost Time world HQ

- Talking about Vicki Lawrence's "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia"

- We forgot to watch the movie

- This was her only hit

- Written by Bobby Russell

- Lawrence was already a regular on The Carol Burnett Show

- Later starred in Mama's Family and her own talk show

- Very confusing story song about murder and infidelity

- Song was offered to Cher but Sonny Bono nixed it

- Later covered by Reba McEntire

- Ric: Should've been an animated movie with animals

- Revenge and death throughout

- We're confused

- Casey Kasem would've been annoyed

- Bobby Russell had two top 40 songs of his own

- "1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero" hit #36

- Could've used an oompah band

- Satire on suburban life

- "Saturday Morning Confusioon" got up to #28 in 1971

- Merging Charlie Rich and Harry Nilsson

- Ric: This guy might be a genius

- Next up: Tony Orlando and Dawn

- To be continued

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:

Pixies - Indie Cindy

Quasi - You Can Stay But You Got to Go

The Julie Ruin - Oh Come On

Ghost Wave - Here She Comes
