Remembering Carl Gardner


Remember all those song Ray Stevens used to sing, you know those funny ditty’s like Yakety Yak, or that song Charley Brown, by whoever.  Guess what, someone did them first, the Coasters, and Carl Gardner was the singer and main man for that band.  The video attached is another song made famous by Ray Stevens, “Along Came Jones“.   Enjoy.  Oh, and for the youngsters watching, TV was only black and white back in the 50’s, no colour, no HD.
