    :oops:Correct title: 57 Channels (And Nothin' On) - Timed out, before I could make correction. Correcting in case this goes a lot of pages, for thread search function to work. :thumbsup:

  11. It' s not about television but Dylan' s ' Black Diamond Bay ' has this great line in it :
    " I was sittin' alone at home one night in L.A. watchin' old Cronkite on the seven o'clock news..."

    And I figgered the first reply would be "Celluloid Heroes"

    Kind glad it wasn't. Never cared for that song, despite being a Kinks fan.

    Buck Owens' Act Naturally, made famous by Ringo's recording of it by that band...



    By the way, Buck Owens is the only songwriter, as far as I know, to have a song recorded by the Beatles (this one) and another by Ray Charles (Cryin' Time).
