Song of the Week - "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" by Nancy Sinatra

Last week we listened to "Don't Let the Sun Catch you Cryin'" by Gerry and the Pacemakers. I wasn't planning on staying in the 60s this week, but I finally stumbled upon a nice copy of this record in my favorite used record store. Nancy Sinatra released her debut album Boots in 1966. And here is her hit song, "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'."

Listen to the Song of the Week every Wednesday at 10am and 10pm, Central.  Watch the video below, featuring the original video made by Nancy Sinatra for video-jukeboxes.

Playing Anthony Frizzell's 1974 K-Tel album on the next AiV

I love finding albums that were at one time owned by others who wrote their names on the cover or the label. I recently purchased a K-Tel album and discovered that it was owned by Anthony Frizzell. His neat signature appears across the label of side 2 of Today's Super Greats, Part-2.

This is a great album, with 14 hit songs that span 1970-73.  The artists include Rod Stewart, Dawn, Shocking Blue, Joe Simon, Chairmen of the Board and many more.

You can hear this episode at the following times (Central) through the month of April:

12:30pm Saturday
4:00pm Sunday
2:00am Wednesday
