Sorry Swishy D-Day was 6th of June but the convoy was the day after on the 7th. We will have to hold off playing it until tomorrow.

If you listen to your first post the song words say 7th of June but as today is the 7th both dates are covered. Paul Brandt, the other Convoy song specialist, used 6th of June but the original C.W. McCall did his early runs on the 7th but he started calling the 6th after a while because it rhymed better. Anyhow that's what some music expert tells us, I would not really know.

Here is someone else's take. This is apparently THE original.

And the convoy did not stop there - they kept going even to Australia. C.W. McCall tries to cash in on his hit.

Unlike the original song this sequel is total crap.

And rightly so, like any hit song at the time.
Didn't mind "round the world with the rubberduck" Love the lines" the British had 100 mlie tea", and the "Autobahn being the ultimate slab and punching 13". The German stating they are travelling to slow.
Liked the way he told a story even if it was silly.

Funny when you're a kid at the time.

Sorry

The link to the song was the GM specs for my 1940 Chev. Here is the song roKWiz must have more discerning (or not) tastes than I do.

Cassified ad would be one of my favs.
