John (Jack) Horvath, 64th TC, Wanted to share this.
I must sadly report that Bruce Askew, 523rd TC has passed. Bruce attended many Gatherings and loved to sit on my tailgate and tell stories. He will be missed. My prayers go out to Diane and Bruce’s family.
As I was listening to my tunes, I couldn’t help but share a few that may bring a smile or two…
ACE OF SPADES:
Both these versions are great; I’m guessing the “Runnin Bare” version from 1970 was the one named on the Guntruck!
And who doesn’t remember this 1959 original, “Running Bear…”
(A LOT of good music came from the ’60s. Dusted off this one thinking there might have been a few guys back in another world that might have had this song on their mind…)
SATAN’S LITTLE ANGEL (better known to many as Satans Li’l Angel)
(Smiling… And for your all time favorite listening pleasure…)
DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS!..
I noticed John put this post up front – so I couldn’t resist adding more classics:
Doesn’t take too much to get me listening to those great songs of the ’60’s…John reminded me of another song by The Kinks (and another Guntruck!)
SET ME FREE:
Hope you enjoy.
