Before our feature presentation, ACME would like to start the evening with another Road Runner/ Wile E. Coyote Looney Tunes cartoon, the 1958 Chuck Jones directed , Hip, Hip Hurry:
Rather than having incidental music composed and arranged specifically for the cartoon, this is one of six Warner Brothers cartoons featuring a non-thematic stock soundtrack due to a musicians' strike. It was scored by John Seely of Capitol Records using stock music from the Hi-Q sound library.
In 1963, before the Rolling Stones hit it big, Charlie Watts met Shirley Ann Shepherd and they began dating. On October 14, 1974, the couple married. They have been married ever since.
The ACME Eagle Hand Soap Radio Hour would like to commemorate their anniversary by asking you to join us in listening to the Rolling Stones' 1973 album, Goat's Head Soup, which hit the US Billboard 200 in the No. 1 spot on October 13, 1973 and stayed there for four weeks. (It was the group’s fourth number one album.)
Great musical trivia (I'm being encouraged to stop encouraging gambling in taverns): The song Waiting On A Friend was originally recorded in 1972 during the sessions for the album Goats Head Soup. The song didn't make the cut but was repackaged and released on Tattoo Younine years later.
