Guy here. During the show I said that Moon Mullican’s big hit was “Filipino Baby.” That’s not correct. While Moon Mullican had a number of hits (he had a #1 country record in the United States in 1949 with “I’ll Sail My Ship Alone”), “Filipino Baby” was T Texas Tyler’s hit.

Also, I forgot the name of Emitt Rhodes’ band prior to his solo career; it was The Merry-G-Round.
