One-Hit Wonders Week

Mar 17, 2016
One-Hit Wonders
Anonymous

From March 11th through the 18th, we will celebrate the biggest one-hit wonders of the ages.  We’ll start with the first charted rock and roll songs and come right up to within the past few years. We decided to hold off on ones from 2010 forward as we’re not sure the artist is done just yet.  The artist might still have another hit.

The guy who always calls it like he sees it pays tribute to his late friend, mentor, and outlaw music icon, Guy Clark. In this session, we welcome back Steve Earle for a live performance.

The song sometimes called the "hippie national anthem" can be found in all kinds of places. It's been used on The Simpsons and in Forrest Gump, recorded dozens of times by the likes of The Kingston Trio, The Dave Clark Five, Jefferson Airplane, The Staples Singers and the Carpenters (twice). You may have even heard it in a Walmart commercial a few years ago.
