    John,

    What a great version of this classic! Thanks so much for sharing with us. Oddly enough, our local television news was doing a story about a new In-N-Out burger locations outside Portland right before I watched your video. Coincidence?

    Thanks, Bill! That's an interesting coincidence! I've actually never been to an In-N-Out, but I hear good things about it!

    Your videos always bring me back memories. Here I thought of transistor radios in my pocket powered by a 9v battery. Thanks!

    Thanks, rainbow21! I had one of those, too, and it was a big part of my falling in love with music!

    As usual great. I had a 9V also, little grey one about the size of a cigarette box. Had an ear piece. A Sunday school teacher thought it was a hearing aid for a while and got wisw to me asked if it was a hearing aid, I replied that it helped me hear things in Miami. Gone.
    Back to the song. Great as usual.
