Subject: RE: Rare Tarriers Recording - Take A Listen
Thanks for posting that, John. I used to listen to Jean Shepherd's show back then. I never knew the Tarriers were still going in the '60s. The original group had a radio hit with "The Banana Boat Song" in the '50s. Jean Shepherd is probably best known as the writer and narrator of the movie "A Christmas Story," about little Ralphie and his desire for a BB gun.
