Ranch Radio Song Of The Day #1693
It's a Swingin' Tuesday and we have a good one. It meets the tastes of renowned western cartoonist A-10 Etcheverry, as it is one of those "blue" recordings, full of sexual innuendo. I like it because we get to hear an unissued recording with some great breaks by fiddler Jimmy Thomason and pianist Moon Mullican. The tune, Fruit Wagon Gal, was recorded in Hollywood on March 3, 1942 and you'll find it on the CD You Oughta See My Fanny Dance: Previously Unissued Western Swing, 1935-1942.
