Wayback Wednesday: Johnny Rivers

Classic Oldies WMTR continues our look at some of the great Summer Songs….with a really beautiful one, which captures the summer of love era perfectly. It’s Summer Rain, being lip synched by Johnny Rivers on TV. We all equate this great song with the Summer season…but it actually made its debut on the charts in December, 1967, and was a wintertime hit! It’s great to listen to and watch at any time of the year. And by the way, why in the world is Johnny Rivers not in the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame???
