One of the most famous classic pop tunes was written on the University of Oklahoma campus by a guy who was trying to impress a girl. Of course, there’s always been a lot of that going around, but few tunes with that sort of origin have gone on to see the kind of success enjoyed by Pinky Tomlin’s “Object of My Affection,” which he wrote in the early 1930s for the woman who would become his wife.
Saturday on SWING ON THIS, we’ll have Milton Brown’s take on Tomlin’s time-honored number, along with the usual piebald potpourri, this time including Leon Russell’s take on a Bob Nolan cowboy classic, Leon McAuliffe channeling Lionel Hampton, and the Bagsby Brothers doing Irving Berlin. Plus, even MORE disc-jockeying mistakes than usual.
That’s SWING ON THIS, Saturday at 7 p.m., Tulsa time, over radio station KWGS, 89.5 FM and live-streaming everywhere over publicradiotulsa.org
