WICHITA LINEMAN. OK, for the last time, this is not about a football player! Jimmy Webb wrote this song about a lonely telephone repairman working the outside lines in Oklahoma.

You really can't get too much more rare than this one. In 1976 an album was produced by the Recruiting Advertising Dept. of the U.S. Navy Recruiting Command. It was NEVER sold to the public. It was called A BICENTENNIAL CHRISTMAS and featured the Lettermen and the U.S. Navy Band. It had intros and all new recordings by Tony, Gary and Donny. This song was written many years before by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane to showcase Miss Judy Garland in the 1944 MGM film MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS. The lyrics were later modified. On the Lettermen's 1966 LP, FOR CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR, Jim Pike performed this classic as his solo.

THE WAY YOU LOOK TONIGHT (1987)
THE WAY YOU LOOK TONIGHT (1987)

In 1987, The Lettermen released what was to be their final wax LP! It was called WHY I LOVE HER. During this time I worked as a radio DJ in York, Pennsylvannia. I had the great fortune to do a Telephone Interview with Tony, Mark and Donovan about the release of their new album. I incorporated and edited these talks into a two hour Radio show which featured all the WHY I LOVE HER recordings, as well as many of the classics and several unreleased tracks. When I moved from NJ to Georgia in 1988, the 4 cassette tapes archiving this show were in a moving truck. When the contents arrived to their Georgia destination, 3 of the tapes were completely melted and lost. A half hour of this piece of history is all that remains. Again, here is another exclusive to this site. Here is one track with me asking Tony about his favorite recording. Enjoy! 3:21 Minutes
