RIP Ian Whitcomb

Ian Whitcomb, best known for "You Turn Me On," from 1965, died on Sunday. Ian was sweet, easy to talk to and had an encyclopedic knowledge of popular song, tin pan alley hits and history. He would sing while accompanying himself on the ukelele. Tootles Ian, thanks for the laughs and music!

Here's Ian on the tonight show, Hungry Women in 1974.

Nathan, thanks for the post. Hilarious. :lol:
Life, as with music, often requires one to let go of the melody and listen to the rhythm
