I Wonder Who My Daddy Is-Eileen Fulton

A couple of touching childhood songs coming up,firstly,Eileen Fulton, the long running star of CBS soap opera, 'As The World Turns',articulating her daughters question 'I Wonder Who My Daddy Is?'.
Now Mizz Fulton is obviously very popular with the men-folk as there seems to be quite a line-up of candidates for the role...hard to tell just how 'tongue-in-cheek' this one was in this post-modern, cynical world...

The Saddest Story-John Kelly

Taking it's cue, rather bizarrely from Billy Holiday's classic 'Strange Fruit' is this warning tale of inter-racial love from Song Poet maestro John Kelly. I'm guessing it's from the 50's but that's about as much as I know...

Bird Of Prey+Easy Livin'-Uriah Heep

Terminally unfashionable, so it seems, and I don't know why? How could anyone not love these two tracks from Uriah Heep? The Heep are still rockin' although my particular favourite frontman, David Byron may have past on to pastures new in 1985...check out this vintage show in Japan, very low quality source, but you certainly get the drift...
