Ginger, I’ve got a problem… I’ve got a real problem… Now you’re a girl, right?
Well, if you’re not sure about that, you have got a problem!
I wrote about a weird radio program, available over the internet, The Retro Cocktail Hour – a few days ago. Today, I received a notice that a new show was up, technically a rebroadcast, and something in the playlist caught my eye. One song was by Tina Louise, recorded in 1957 (the year I was born) – seven years before that fateful three hour cruise. She recorded one album, It’s Time For Tina… and what do you know? She can sing.
This is truly the best of all possible worlds (even if you like Mary Ann better).
Tina Louise singing Embraceable You from her album. If you don’t want to listen to the whole thing – jump up to about 2:33 – That’s the Jazz God Coleman Hawkins on tenor sax.
