Re: SUNDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Since at least late 1968, that WAS the song used by NE Dragway, the
Meadowlands, Orange County Speedway and CT Dragway.  They may have used
other music for different "flights" of spots, but the prime music was from
"Gimme Gimme Good Lovin".  I was there when Sal (WRKO tech) did the master -
it was from only one channel of the stereo track (I forget which one).  We
recut the bed digitally about 5 years ago and it is still used today by 3 or
4 places around the country.
