Write Me A Letter…

Songs About Letters

The Friday Night Cat Fight honors the summertime tradition of letter writing.  Yes, before email, paging, texting and tweets, the only way to tell someone the feelings deep in your heart was to hand write them a letter.  Even today, there is no more genuine way to communicate than letter writing.

This week’s crop of themed tunes focuses on the joys and heartbreaks around the receiving and sending of letters.  Ruth Brown, Little Willie John, Buddy Holly and many more are featured on this week’s show.

Plus, vote for your favorite version of “Write Me A Letter”.  The songs are different and so are the “feels” of each recording.

So here’s hoping that the mailman brings you no more blues.

    This week’s choice of songs was your best ever. With the theme of “letters”, there are enough cliche’ songs but you went for all creative and unique ideas, and put together an amazing mix of styles and decades, almost all of which I really liked. You remain the best “discographer mixologist” I have ever heard, and I miss you on the radio…can’t wait for Fridays for the new program, which I listen to over and over like a baby watching Barney (LOL!!). Hang in!

    Hey, Furry One:

    Great job (as usual).

    I still can’t get the weekend started until I get my MTC and Cat Fight “fix.” And – you never disappoint! Thanks for keeping ’em coming.

    Al Jennings really said it all didn’t he? The Ravens version was a real toe tapper for me. I also second Yum Yum wishes.

    I remember when the Blossoms were regulars on Shindig with the Righteous Bros. My Night Prowl tee shirt is so cool.

    Here’s hoping Yum Yum’s dream will come true, and that he is a real prophet in this case. The FNCF on the Web is a great thing, and I look forward to my weekly fix and download each one, but they can’t compare with hearing you on the radio every day. Meanwhile, keep it up; we never miss the chance to get into it around here.
