    No worries Dave .... It made sense.... I was second guessing myself on this. Thanks Stavro for figuring it out!

    Thanks Stavro for digging deeper. One can't always believe everything one sees or hears on the internet these days.

    My apologies to Dan for doubting his info.

    So here's the thing...and I just woke up, so the assessment will be far from perfect.

    The BMI site credits a song called French Fries to Dickie Goodman and is published by "Jon Goodman Publishing" (his son). This isn't the only one there that doesn't seem like a Dickie Goodman style track. The Youtube video also credits the son. He's clearly cashing in off his father's reputation - or trying to, anyway. Nothing illegal in that if you inherited the catalog...

    Meanwhile, there's an actual picture of the Dick Goodwin track & they both clock in at 2:13. And the track we have has a record needle drop sound suggesting it's the 45 rather than..oh, wait. The YouTube video has it as well.

    The Dick Goodwin track doesn't appear on the BMI site even though the 45 photo shows it to be a BMI song. And yes, I looked for "Richard Goodwin", "Goodwin, Richard" and went through all the Goodwins on the site. No "French Fries" by him either when searching for the title rather than the artist. It wasn't on the ASCAP site, either. But it did show that Jon Goodman Publishing is affiliated with BMI.

    Best guess: Dickie made the 45 using a similar name, not wanting to be associated with a "non-break in" record. Unless it was successful, of course. When Jon got the rights to his father's catalog, it was time to cash in.

    When in doubt, BMI wins out. Find an mp3 of the other track determining them to be separate works & I'll put it back...or make another page. Until then, the cynical "money grab" assessment stands.

    I really should have done it this way yesterday...

    They could be corect on this.... I don't know.... On the mp3 you can here the record needle drop. I couldn't find a 45rpm with audio on YouTube to verify. The EP release credits Dickie Goodman. I know this isn't the first case of this happening and I'm sure theres more songs on Apple and iTunes with similar issues. Regardless.... This song was originally going to be a mystery song on a future show..... Kinda glad we didn't use it for that!

     

    Another thing too is when the playlist is entered for the station it goes right to that ep which makes me assume royalties are going to Dickie Goodman!

    Yes, it seems out of character, doesn't it? We'll go with this for now.

    Dave AuJus:

    Then Apple is wrong. This is most likely Dick Goodwin. Dickie Goodman is/was the King of the Break-in song and never sang anything (as far as I know). Could not verify "Dickie Goodman - French Fries" on any album at Amazon.

    I'd say your correct. It's listed as Dickie Goodman and the cd is called Election 2012. It appears to be some sort of ep release. I sent details of what I found for information.
