>> I was listening to WRKO-FM (Arko, the Shy but Friendly Robot) almost
> exclusively in the winter of 1966-67,. when both of those songs were hits.
> Arko played only the Jordan Brothers and New Vaudeville Band versions. The
> first time I heard the Spencer Davis Group's "Gimme Some Lovin'" was the
> following spring on WRKO(AM). I have yet to hear the New Happiness
> "Winchester Cathedral" anywhere; WDRC-FM Hartford plays the New Vaudeville
> Band version on its "Big D on HD" HD-2 stream.
