Your spot for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know! But! Before we reveal this week’s Trivia question, we’d like to acknowledge all the sharp readers who weighed in on last week’s question, which was: all about the lyric’s to one of our favorite Beach Boy’s songs,“Heroes and Villains” First in with all the right answers, was The Wizard himself Mr. Steve Winogradsky! Ya did it again! Congrats Mr. Dub ya! Following closely on Steve’s heals was a. relatively new “SMS Super Genius” Ms. Lisa! Way to go Lisa! Next in was our old colleague Mr. Jeffery Conroy!

But now! It’s time for the brand new trivia quiz for Tues. Sept. 27th! This week’s question focuses on the great Johnny Rivers and one of his biggest hits! The song we have in mind, includes a lyrical reference to a relative of the singer, who lived ( according to the song) “just a half a mile from the Mississippi bridge.” What is the relatives’ first name and what is their relationship to the singer ? Naturally we need the title of this classic from 1964, as well as the name of the songwriter ?
In summary, here’s what we need:
1) According to the lyric from this great Johnny Rivers hit, What is the name of the person who lives “Just a half a mile from the Mississippi bridge” ?
2) According to the lyric, how are they related to the singer (Johnny) ?
3) What is the title of this 60’s classic ?
4) Who wrote this “Smash” for Johnny ?
