READ LONG DISTANCE DEDICATION LETTER

Dear Casey,

Until recently, I had been dating the same girl for 3 years, and I loved her, but she loved me so deeply that she would do ANYTHING for me. Even my sister said “this girl can’t live without you.”  Things were great, and just like any couple we had our fights here and there.   But one day, I asked her to move in with me…and that’s when it happened…after 3 years we hit a wall when she wouldn’t commit to the idea of living together so we broke up.   She didn’t want to start our life together without a commitment.  She wants to be married first.  It’s been 2 months since we’ve spoken but I can’t seem to get her out of my mind.  And I’ve given it a lot of thought and now I agree, we should get married…but I’m wondering if she still wants me.  Does she still love me?  Does she still want to spend the rest of her life with me?  Casey, would please play the Jackson 5 song, “I Want You Back”?  Because Debbie, I really want you back!  And that’s forever.  Signed, Desperate in Dodge City, sincerely Bill.  Bill…here’s your long distance dedication.

INTRO #3

It’s time for the Top 3 songs in the countdown.

CHART # / ARTIST INFO / CHART ACTION / TITLE

“With us at number 3 is a song that refers to receiving immediate accountability for your actions. It is a solo recording from one of the most popular British bands. With George Harrison on guitar and Billy Preston on piano. Beatle John Lennon was able to write and record this song in the same day. This however was an unusual factor during The Beatles era for a song to be written and put onto tape the same day. For the second week in a row at #3; here John Ono Lennon and  ‘Instant Karma’.”

“But first…it’s a song coming from everyone’s favorite British band.  And it’s  written by Paul McCartney. As Paul tells it, the song was written after Paul had a dream where he saw his dead mother of ten years “speaking words of wisdom” which brought him much peace when he needed it. Well, it stays peacefully at the number 2 spot for two weeks in a row …The Beatles and ‘Let It Be’ on American Top 40.”

INTRO #1

ARTIST INFO / SONG INFO / CHART ACTION

“There is always an artist that surprises you with its wonderful melodies and harmonies.  I’m talking about an American duo who are known for featuring their songs in the ’67 hit movie The Graduate. They met in Forest Hills, Queens and used to perform using the names Tom and Jerry. Their current hit single started out as a Gospel hymn but became more dramatic as they put it together. It is about providing comfort to a person in need.   For its 6th Week at the top of the chart

TYMPANI ROLL…

Here’s the Number 1 Song in the Nation.  Simon & Garfunkel with ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’.”

ARTIST / TITLE

“That was Simon & Garfunkel with ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’.”
