So it’s International Louie Louie Day. I thought I would pull some of the oddest versions you have never heard. In 1983 KFJC played many, many hours of Louie Louie. There’s a book about it somewhere. Richard Berry was born on this date, hence it being International Louie Louie Day. Big thanks to Eric Predoehl for his dedication. You’re obsessed, man!
Special guest Ruce and Dan from Heroes of the New Media were on talking about their upcoming Japanese benefit this Wednesday at Kimo’s on Polk St.
