Today on ‘Tickets @ 2’ it’s [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Jackson 5[/lastfm]’s “ABC.” The song was written and produced by a group of Motown songwriters known as “The Corporation.”
They were: Freddie Perren, Fonce Mizell, Deke Richards, and Berry Gordy, Jr. Freddie Perren was a former school teacher, which probably influenced the school metaphors in the lyrics.
This became the Jackson 5’s second # 1 hit by knocking out [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Beatles[/lastfm]’ “Let It Be.”
After the Jackson’s were signed to Motown, they moved to Hollywood for years of rehearsals. Some lived with Berry Gordy, some with Diana Ross.
When it plays between two and three we’ll take caller # 6 for a four-pack of tickets to Legoland California to check out the new Star Wars themed mini-land; 1-800-232-KRTH (5784)!
