Podcast: July 26, 2020 – Good Time Charlies

Episode #847

This is another in our collection of timeless Standby episodes, which you may hear again sometime when I’m not able to put together a new episode for whatever reason. I’m pretty sure you won’t mind.

Have you ever noticed how many songs there are about or by Charlies? No, seriously, it’s an epidemic or something! You wouldn’t think that Charlie would pop up so often in songs, but we’ve got two hours of Charlies for you, and there are a whole bunch that I had to leave off! Good Times, Charlie!

So, Charlie, whoever you are, this one’s for you!
