Open Mic, Insert Foot

So I’m live on Oldies this past Sunday… setting up the one hit by Bobbie Gentry… you know, the one about the guy who fell off the Tallahatchie Bridge…

Somehow, and I still don’t know how, it came out “Ode to Billy Joel” instead of “Ode to Billie Joe”.

My program director wanted to know if that meant Bobbie Gentry was an Uptown Girl. Bah… I make the blunder and HE gets the better joke out of it… šŸ™‚
