Great to see that someone remembers the Wildweeds. Al Anderson from that group went on to NRBQ the group that has been called the greatest bar band in the world. Never played on Toronto radio but I think I heard them once on CKLN:

when many canadians think of this next song their thoughts go to a 1971 cover version by the poppy family. personally, as a kid growing up on the east coast of the u.s.a. my thoughts go to the 1967 original (plus my brother bought the 45 when it first hit the wmex airwaves). here's the original version of "no good to cry" by "the wildweeds".

The original...


 

The only commercial that I stop to watch and turn up the volume for.

It doesn't get any better for soundtrack selection.

There are two versions of The Jaynetts recording of Sally Go Round The Roses.  The stereo version is amazing and does not sound like a 55-year-old song.

Okay, let's listen to the stereo version...



 

Awesome, thanks.  Even the cover art on YouTube looks better.  Thanks.

Hey, at least they played the stereo version which, in my opinion, is superior and seems less dated than the mono version with the organ.  In music, as well as other aspects of life, sometimes less is more.

I only heard this song ONCE...on a university radio station in the mid 70s.  I ended up recording a small snippet of it on cheap cassette that I still have to this day.  It sounds like a Night At The Opera outtake, mainly because it was produced by Freddie Mercury, with BrIan May's unmistakable guitar sound in the mix as well.




But why wasn't it a hit?

It's an I.R.S. (It Really Shoulda) been a hit. Great find!

Er, make that "hear" the treble ....lol

Oh gosh don't post that - Irvine will mock me for liking AM Stereo ...lol.

But the bigger plus here is not that it's in stereo, but that a wideband receiver was used.  Here the treble and the consonant blends?  It's quite clear, and appears to utilize full 10 K response.

Even in mono, that's a benefit.  Listen to an AM station on a GE Super Radio, and believe it for yourself.

I found a tape recorded off CJCJ AM featuring Doug Austin and Rob Cowan where they play the stereo version of Sally Go Round the Roses.. I have other AM stereo snippets posted to the site from 1050 CHUM but I think I recorded most of those off cable FM but I believe this was recorded right off AM.

This is during the Music of Your Life era from the late 1980's. You will also hear Harold Hosein on this XMAS time air check. Highlights for me are the fact that they play Rock Around The Clock and Sally Go Round The Roses.

Fast forward to the other end of Dale's target range...the late 1980s. Here is a very on-topic offering - Devil's Radio, from George Harrison's 1987 "Cloud Nine" album. I've selected a version that includes the lyrics. It's even more relevant today.

Enjoy...

...and that is why I love paying taxes for CBC TV. Shows like Marketplace cover Bell's issues quite well. 
(but as a friend points out...can CBC "bad mouth the government" lol)

There are two versions of The Jaynetts recording of Sally Go Round The Roses.  The stereo version is amazing and does not sound like a 55-year-old song.  The mono version with the background organ sounds terribly dated in my opinion.  The lyrics could be interpreted in two ways. The Baby could be an ex-boyfriend or a child delivered out of wedlock.  Either way, it is a very mature song for the era, which was loaded with tunes about teenage angst.

The song hit the charts in September of 1963 and the world changed dramatically a few months later with the Kennedy assassination in November and the British music invasion led by the Beatles in 1964

I heard this song for years and years and never knew its title since it was only played as fill music to TOH newscasts or as bumper music in and out of commercial breaks. Produced by George Martin --

From 1962, Ketty (not Kitty) Lester. It grows on you. Check the piano licks...
