Dr. Clifford fry was an Economics professor at the University of Houston.  On the side he had a decent little country rock band, and apparently stayed up late playing “nights game” and getting drunk.

The last I can find, Dr. Fry and his band the Texas Medicine Band still play.   He has a few cd’s on Amazon

I even found a pic of him, his hat, and Ventures records from 2011:

Yodeling For Jesus

Bobby Walker
“Gospel Organ featuring Yodeling for Jesus”
Gospel Music for Christ #GMC 901

From the liner notes:
“I’m in love with Jesus!  It’s just that simple.  Barbituates, amphetamines, booze, and pot, were replaced with the Holy Spirit.  I’m higher than I’ve ever been in my life.  Man, what a trip.  No joke, I get higher everyday and never worry about the inevitable crash that accompanies pills and the hard stuff.  Being an ex-night club entertainer, I’m hip to all the “junk”.  So I can speak authoritatively.”

Come for the blintzes, stay for the Booty Shirts

Steve Fortgang
“The #1 Bar Mitzvah Band”
1983

From the liner notes:

“The STEVE FORTGANG Entertaining Orchestra has become the #1 Bar Mitzvah Band in South Florida probably because they enjoy what they do… They thrive on making your party a success!  The band is outrageous and their “good-time” attitude is contagious!  Perhaps Steve is #1 because of the many “Specialty Dances” and “Contests” he MC’s, and the hit records, albums and Booty Shirts that are awarded to the kids as prizes.”

Where are My Keys? Where Did I Park? What Day Is It?

Ray Brock
“Who Am I? Why Am I Here?  Where Am Going?”
Ray Brock #LP-1001

From the Record Label:
“For best results, play this record during the last three hours of your sleep each night.  If you do not have a timer, play this record all night.  Play this record every night for at least three months or longer if needed or desired.  Turn down the volume, very very low.  Wonderful results should follow.”

Everybody wear your best shirt!

Royals
“Music”
Spirit #1202

Many gospel groups go to great lengths to wear matching, coordinated outfits.  The Royals, however, appear to have split a $20 gift certificate at the thrift store on the way to the photo shoot.
