‘It’s A Monday Kind Of Friday . . .’

Friday, October 23rd, 2020

An appointment with the eye doctor – no biggie, just some surprisingly large floaters – has pulled me away today, leaving the day disjointed and my left eye dilated. So here’s a tune from 1967 with an appropriate title: “Monday Kind Of Friday” by a group called Dawn’s Early Light.

A comment at YouTube by a fellow named Eddie Black says that the group was made up of four guys who otherwise were in a five-man group from the Bronx called the Five Sharks. He says the record was No. 1 in upstate New York, but nothing at the Airheads Radio Survey Archive supports that, although the record went to No. 13 on WINN in Louisville, Kentucky, and to No. 14 on WVAM in Altoona, Pennsylvania.

The record also made it onto surveys in Montgomery, Alabama; Lowell and Medford, Massachusetts; Quincy, Illinois; and Latrobe, Pennsylvania, as well as in Milwaukee, New York City, Seattle and Montreal.

The record came to me in the massive Lost Jukebox collection that floated around the ’Net a decade ago or so.
