Another baseball jingle

From back when NBC was a class operation (1968), here’s the jingle they used on their weekend “Monitor” radio block when it was time to give the baseball

going to be some hoopla, including a performance of it during the seventh-inning stretch of the All-Star Game — as far as I know, the first time that’s happened since 2001. No word on its use during the World Series. I’ve got my fingers crossed, but I assume Bud Selig has other ideas.

Just in time to spend the checks from your grandparents

Our Baseball Music page has been updated to match the new format — and, more importantly, now with links in addition to the iTunes links.

I also acquired a new baseball-themed radio station jingle, from WCAU in Philadelphia — it’s available for download at the top of the music page, along with all

the other baseball jingles I’ve got.

Music to watch the playoffs by

At last, some musical content that’s more on-topic than the Larry Finlayson update.

I haven’t been keeping up very well with the baseball songs page (although I’m planning to update it as part of a renovation of both and my personal site, hopefully by the end of the year if I get around to it). But it’s there, and its content is able to be searched, which is how I recently heard from a musician named Howie Newman.

In 1979, he recorded an EP of five original baseball songs called “Baseball’s Greatest Hits” — about a decade before Rhino ripped off the name for their compilation — which is available both through iTunes and in the popular “compact disc” format.

He also has a couple of other original baseball songs on two more recent releases, also available via iTunes. And he has two baseball songs available as free downloads. One is off “Baseball’s Greatest Hits” and is called “Astroturf.” The other is more recent and is called — well, I don’t want to totally give away the surprise, so I’ll just say that my collection of baseball songs now includes musical mentions of Joe DiMaggio, Ozzie Smith, and Johnny Damon.

Finlayson for your life

Way back on May 31, 2004, I made reference to Larry Finlayson, singer of the “Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown” theme song. Courtesy of someone who recently found that post, I now have more information about him:

He was my teacher in elementary school in Berkeley, California. I happen to be recording his LP from 1979 to MP3 right now. It’s called, “Give Your Friend A Smile…”. It was recorded at the Music Annex under the name of Finlayson Music Production in 1979. Larry was/is indeed a songwriter and played the guitar in this album.

With those pieces of additional information in hand, a quick Yahoo! search reveals that he’s using a different name these days. And he’s available for weddings! I’d consider hiring him if the “Race for Your Life” theme is still a part of his repertoire, assuming I ever have a wedding.

The jingle Levi’s been waiting for (maybe)

This is from KWK radio in St. Louis in the late 1950s or early 1960s, and you

My first game of 2006

Yes, Dodger Stadium has new seats this season, in lovely pastel colors which really do look like they’re from 1962. They also renumbered the seats, so that instead of having aisle numbers, with seats starting at “1” on one side and “101” on the other side, the reserved level now has section numbers like a normal stadium. (Things were even weirder on the field and loge levels, with one row letter covering two rows, one with seat numbers increasing and the other with seat numbers decreasing — presumably,

that situation has been dealt with as well.)

Yes, quite a few Chicagoites will show up at Dodger Stadium when the Cubs are in town, wearing the world’s cutest baseball cap…

Someone near us had a radio, so I know that Vin Scully described 6-foot-7 Cubs pitcher Sean Marshall as “a tall drink of water”…

This game had something for everyone, from bone-jarring collisions to wildly errant throws. Best of all, though, is the fact that the Dodger Stadium music selection committee has provided the world with a new, particularly appropriate song to play for bases on balls: Tegan and Sara’s “Walking with a Ghost,” in the form of the White Stripes’ cover version. Why is it particularly appropriate? Because walks haunt.

Life outside the diamond is a wrench

There’s one former Dodger in the title, and another former Dodger alluded to in the lyrics, and half of was in the audience, so of coursePiazza, New York Catcher” was performed in Los Angeles — even though Stuart Murdoch had to refer to a cheat sheet a couple of times for the lyrics. Of course, it now refers to a bygone era, but replacing “New York” and “Mets” with “San Diego” and “Padres” would break the rhythm.

Incidentally, $30 for a concert, not including the Ticketmaster “convenience” charges that brought it up to nearly $45, and I didn’t even get to sit down! Baseball is truly your best entertainment value, although it’s somewhat unlikely that you’ll hear a lot of Scottish art-school alterna-pop at a baseball game. (But if you are very lucky, you will hear “Walk Away Renee” — referred to in “Piazza, New York Catcher” — played on the organ.)

Which reminds me…only two weeks till the season starts.

Opening Day 1994 seems like such a long time ago

Hanger-on Dan just sent out an e-mail with the subject line “News of earth-shaking impact” that turned out to contain a link to an news story and the words “Prepare to be a Reds fan.” Now, I don’t have an especially fast connection, and I was using much of the speed I do have to download clips of the new Australian version of “Family Feud,” so after I clicked on the link in Dan’s e-mail, it took quite a while to load. I pondered — what could it be? What could it be?

It was better than I could have imagined, especially if Tuffy makes the team (and I like Quinton McCracken, too, but he’s no Tuffy).

Incidentally, you may note that Channel Nine in Australia appears to be using the slogan “Still the One.” This was the slogan of the ABC network in the U.S. way back in the late 1970s, tied to the then-reasonably-current song of the same name by the band Orleans. Wow, things take a long time to get to Australia!
