Now I wonder if WLOB played the Jordan Brothers because WBZ did

I emailed Dick Summer and he said
Hi Kevin, nice to hear from you. It's hard for most people to imagine
these days, but BZ didn' t have a format or a play list. We played
what we wanted to play. So a lot of stuff came up that "didn't make
sense." We were just having fun. It's special to be remembered for all
those years...

Actually I liked the Jordan Brothers version better. Heard it for the
first time in close to 40 years this morning online
