Get Wild With Tarzan and Jim Dandy on the Next Dave White Presents!
In 1971, Black Oak Arkansas were pioneers of the Southern rock sound with songs like '"Hot and Nasty" and "Lord Have Mercy on My Soul." Featuring the growling lead vocals of Jim "Dandy" Mangrum, they had 10 chart-topping albums and a 1973 hit with their remake of "Jim Dandy to the Rescue."
Jim Dandy and Black Oak are still at it! For example, come January, they're part of the "Rock Legends Cruise" along with folks like Paul Rodgers, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Foreigner, and Kansas. On Tues. Dec. 4, Jim Dandy tells you all about it on DWP, and it's a wild one, we promise!
Speaking of wild, we got a double-dose of Tarzan for you to celebrate Lord Greystoke's 100th birthday! To begin, how's this for a book title—ME TARZAN, YOU TRAIN?
You might remember Denny Miller as Duke Shannon on WAGON Train and his guest roles in over 200 series like HAVE GUN, WILL TRAVEL, THE RIFLEMAN, V, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, and GILLIGAN'S ISLAND. In 1959, he starred in TARZAN, THE APE MAN. He's now the "World's Oldest Living Tarzan," a member of the PTA—Past Tarzan Association!
Denny is now also a personal trainer, hence the title of his new book. In a lively conversation with Dave White, Denny talks about Tarzan and how exercise without pain is what can keep you young and swinging in the trees.
Speaking of good book titles, Tracy Griffin's TARZAN: THE CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION is just that—a colorful celebration of 100 years with the Lord of the Jungle. On the next DWP, Tracy tells you all about Tarzan in the Edgar Rice Burroughs books, on film, stage, radio, pulp magazines, and the comics. You'll love this book—chock-full of beautiful art and photos of all those screen Tarzans—like Denny Miller!
All this and some new "predictably unpredictable" humor on the next DAVE WHITE PRESENTS swings your way Tuesday, Dec. 4, at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over--
