The TRUE THAT Show with Deb & Caroline

An amazing interview with Doug Cornfield and Dave Clark, author & inspiration for the books “A Pound of Kindness” and “Pulling Each Other Along”A Pound of Kindness is a true story from the childhood of Dave Clark, the only professional baseball player to pitch from crutches, A National Hero of Sports winner, and an advocate for children with differing abilities. Having worked with Dave for a number of years through their Disability, Dream, and Do sports events, Doug J. Cornfield wrote A Pound of Kindness to share with children and parents alike the enduring power of a simple, thoughtful act. What began as a Kickstarter is now a children’s picture book and a movement to empower children of differing abilities through sports and camps."You may never know the weight that a small act of kindness can have on a person's life" ~ Dave ClarkSome of you may not know about Dave Clark's story of drive and inspiration. It’s a story about a man who dreamed and did his way through what was expected to be a life of impossibility and created a reality beyond his dreams.Pulling Each Other Along honors the unwitting acts of kindness that change lives and give the gift of hope and possibility.When Dave Clark was in 1st grade a boy named Ernie Pound changed his life forever when he brought his Red Radio Flyer Wagon to school with the sole purpose of giving Dave a ride to the local fire station for a field trip. 50 years later Dave got to thank him.Today Clark, along with his foundation — Dave Clark Foundation, Ltd. — is doing everything he can to expand awareness to over fifty million Americans living with disabilities by highlighting their potential and accomplishments.

A Pound of Kindness with Dave Clark and Doug Cornfield

Wonders and Miracles

My guests today are two men who truly exemplify the traits of kindness, perseverance, and friendship. They have both lived miraculous lives. When Dave was just 10 months old, he contracted polio. His parents were told that he would probably not survive. Not only did he survive but Dave went on to become the only professional baseball player to pitch and play from crutches. Doug had a son who was born with a disability and he was inspired by Dave’s story. Things miraculously fell into place for Doug and Dave to meet and a partnership was formed. They now are inspirational speakers, authors, and run the Disability Dream and Do camp for children with disabilities. I know you will enjoy the many touching stories they share today.

Better Than The Beatles: The Dave Clark Five

In The Past: Garage Rock Podcast

Paul McCarthy is in shambles! The third in our “Better than the Beatles” series features the Dave Clark Five, the southern rivals of the Fab Four. Both Erik & Weldon list their reasons why the DC5 are superior in every way and scientists and philosophers alike have described their logic as “airtight.” Our discussion of “Bits and Pieces” (5:24) reveals Dave to be a true 60s auteur who beats the Beatles in revolutionary strategy. We then break down how “Anyway You Want It” (44:55) is a sterling example of the two-minute Tottenham symphony which still echoes in our collective ears, and  Erik explains how Mike Smith is the Serpentor (GI Joe fans will understand...). “Nineteen Days” (1:16:09) is a ‘countdown’ song that distorts time and space, as our appreciative garage philosophers assert. And finally, Weldon contemplates the bleak, organ-less musical landscape of today when we talk about “Come Home” (1:39:10), and Erik points out the literal heights the DC5 could reach, compared to the Liverpool losers.

Dave Clark Five, Link Wray, and Evie Sands.

D-Sides, Orphans, and Oddities

Mike Smith - Medley (1985)  Mike Smith Marlboro Themes (?) I would guess 1980.  2004: Mike Smith, the lead singer of band the Dave Clark Five, has died of pneumonia at an English hospital, just weeks before the band was to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Smith, 64, was admitted to a hospital outside London on Wednesday morning with a chest infection resulting from complications of a 2003 spinal cord injury that had left him paralyzed from the waist down, his New York agent, Margo Lewis, said in a statement. His death came just two weeks before the Dave Clark Five - one of the leading bands of the 1960s British invasion - was due to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in two weeks. The Dave Clark Five, whose hits included Glad All Over and Bits and Pieces, were one of the first British bands to find major success in the United States after the Beatles. Mike Smith & Mike D'Abo - Free As A Bird (1976)  Dave Clark Five - Fallout Shelter (1965)  Dave Clark Five - Into Your Life (1971)  Sal Mineo - PSA "Inside Your Insanity" Laughable anti-drug PSA.  The Sonics - Don't You Just Know It (1965) Orig. hit by Huey (Piano) Smith & The Clowns  Joy Fleming - Half-Breed (1973)  The Kane Triplets - Theme Form Mission:Impossible (1968)  The Kane Triplets were a pop music group made up of triplets Lucille, Jeanne and Maureen Kane. They are perhaps best known for their recording of the Theme from Mission: Impossible, which was released in 1968 by United Artists Records with vocals written by Fred Milano and Angelo D'Aleo of The Belmonts. On 30 January 2007, Jeanne Kane was murdered by her ex-husband and retired NYPD sergeant John Galtieri. Galtieri, who was (at the time) a manager at Quiznos, was sentenced to 25 years to life imprisonment for shooting Kane in a Staten Island parking lot. Which confirms my theory: DON'T EAT AT QUIZNOS!!! The Chocolate Tunnel - The Highly Successful Young Rupert White (1967)  Moody Blues - Driftwood (1978)  Evie Sands - Any Way That You Want Me (1969) Evie Sands - Lady Of The Night (1979)  Evie Sands - One Fine Summer Morning (1969)  Evie Sands - Wouldn't It Be Nice To Live Again (2007) Written by that wonderful broken soul Dennis Wilson.  Link Wray - Ice People (1971)  Link Wray - Snag (1979) Link Wray & Mordicai Jones - The Coca Cola Sign Blinds My Eyes (1971) Mordicai Jones was Link's piano/mandolin player Bobby Howard. Link Wray & Joey Welz - Listen To The Voices That Want To Be Free (1970)  Ray Thomas - Didn't I (1976) Flautist from The Moody Blues did a solo record like all the other members did in 1976.  Ray Thomas - Adam and I (1975) Or two. He was the Robin Gibb of the Moodies.  Ray Thomas - Hey Mama Life (1975) The Whispers - A Mother For My Children (1974) The Whispers - Bingo (1974)  The Whispers - I Only Meant To Wet My Feet (1971) The Gap Band - Fontessa Fame (1974)
