"Stranger on the Shore", which was a #1 instrumental hit by Acker Bilk at the
For this reason I'd recorded a vocal version of this
great song for my 2002 CD, "Super Songs Narvelized". It was released as a single
to radio on the Hot Disc Compilation in January 2003.
On June 30th, while Loretta and I were having breakfast
at home, listening to Cousin Carl & Susan on KWKZ Cape Girardeau, Missouri, they
announced that my recording, "Stranger on the Shore" was #1 on the Indie World
Chart. They played it. Loretta and I danced to it again on our Kitchen floor while my
version was playing on the radio. It had been 41 years since we'd danced on the Top Hat
Club dance floor in Kennett, Missouri while Acker Bilk's record played on the juke box.
