Part 2 of my conversation with guest Ric Dube as we dissect the strange connections of '70s-era pop hitmakers. I've also got music from Deerhoof, Fat History Month and The Baseball Project.

Show notes:

- Recorded at More Lost Time world HQ

- Christopher Cross' surprisingly long career

- Producer Michael Omartian was in disco act Rhythm Heritage, which released the #1 hit "Theme from S.W.A.T." in 1976

- Also did theme from Baretta

- Steve Barry formed Rhythm Heritage with Omartian

- Barry produced Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods

- Ric plans his funk album

- Sammy Davis Jr. sang the Baretta theme

- "Billy, Don't Be a Hero" was big hit for Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods

- Ric's unsealed Bo Donaldson record

- First discovered while touring with the Osmonds

- The sadness of the 1970s package tour

- The Osmonds actually had a few cool songs

- "Hold Her Tight" was a Zeppelin sound-alike

- Recorded during their "rock" phase, which didn't last long

- Donny and Marie were the big moneymakers

- Donny Osmond had a few hits in 1989

- His mid-'70s song "C'mon Marianne" was much better

 

Music:

Deerhoof - Milk Man

Fat History Month - Angel From Montgomery

The Baseball Project - To the Veterans Committee
