Clyde Wins Friday Night Cat Fight

“Without Love (There Is Nothing) “
Clyde McPhatter : 81 Votes

Tom Jones : 44 Votes

Tom Jones certainly gave Clyde a run for his money, but in the end, the high tenor of Clyde McPhatter wins out.
This week, as we celebrate Mardi Gras, the Friday Night Cat Fight brings a little bit of New Orleans right to your computer. The theme of this week’s show is of course New Orleans R&B; and all the masters are here, from ‘Fes to Fats.
The battle this week will be by two New Orleans natives over a song that has become synonomous with the Big Easy and Mardi Gras. It began as “Jock-A-Mo” in 1953 by Sugar Boy Crawford & His Cane Cutters, but evolved into “Iko Iko” which hit the US top 20 in April of 1965. Vote on this New Orleans classic, this week on the Friday Night Cat Fight.

Thanks for continuing to spread the word about The Friday Night Cat Fight as it is getting bigger and bigger every week.

Let’s just say that Matt The Cat put up an Internet radio program that you could stream at work and download to your ipod or computer. You could listen to it anytime you wanted and a new program would be put up every weekday. Would you be interested and would you pay to listen to such a program? There are many expenses associated with such an endeavor. A legal internet radio show would have to pay publishing rights to BMI and ASCAP. A show would also have to pay rights to the RIAA (Sound Exchange). All this costs money. Plus, Matt The Cat would have to make enough to support himself and his family. In return, Matt would present a great sounding, professional show that would be even better than those shows he produced for XM Radio.

Please take a moment to fill out this survey, so we get an idea how many are willing to sign up.

Thanks so much for your time.
