Did You Know: “Down On The Corner” By Creedence Clearwater Revival

Today’s ‘Tickets @ 2’ song is “Down On The Corner” by CCR.

The song tells the story of a fictional jug band, Willy and the Poor Boys, who were street musicians “playing for nickels, can’t be beat.”

Just as The Beatles took the role of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Creedence became Willie And The Poor Boys for the album.

John Fogerty did all the singing, he recorded a bunch of vocal tracks that were overdubbed to create the effect that he was harmonizing with himself.

By the way, those who saw Fogerty last month at the El Rey Theatre on Wilshire said he knocked it out of the park.

When we play it between two and three we’ll take caller #7 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to see Roger Daltrey perform at the OC Fair in a benefit for ‘Teen Cancer America’ Saturday, August 10th.
