COMEDY NIGHT ON C-FUN

Every Sunday night from 6 to midnight C-FUN deviated from its Top 40 format to give listeners 6 hours of comedy, everything from Steve Allen's 'Funny Fone Calls', the comedy of Shelley Berman, Bill Dana as Jose Jimenez, Bill Cosby, and so many more. Your host was Andy Laughland.

THE CORRUPTIBLES

Following the success of Dickie Goodman's The Touchables, C-FUN produced its own variation, The Corruptibles. It was produced "in-house" as a novelty or "break-in" song using clips from other Top 40 songs with in-between narrations leading up to each clip. The Good Guys refers to Andy Laughland--Producer, Dave McCormick--writer, and "Baby Blue Eyes" Brian Lord as narrator. The record was on a C-FUN label and was available only at local Dairy Queen outlets. The flip side was blank. This record may possibly be the very first reference to the C-FUN DJs as the Good Guys, a term which would eventually replace the "Swinging Men at 1410".

FUJIKAMI THE WARRIOR

The Hi-Fives, were normally touted as a serious blues band. It's members included Harry Walker (vocals); Freddy Carotenuto (saxophone); Tab Shori (guitar); Bill Papuc (bass); and Red Lewis/Larry Krashin (drums). Fujikami's" shrieks were those of guest deejay "Frosty" Forst. The group's OTHER single, "Mean Old Woman" was allegedly more representative of their sound. . .
