R.I.P. Richard Dawson: Kissey Game Show Host And Acid Rock Star

While searching for a quality "Hogan's Heroes" clip to pay tribute to the late Richard Dawson(who played Corporal Newkirk on the show) I found this Psychedelic Era Gem that he recorded for Carnation Records in 1967. "Apples And Oranges" is the b-side to "Children's Parade". This was done two years into the "Hogan's Heroes" run so he probably thought, "Hey, if Shatner can do it, so can I!" I would've loved to have seen Richard Dawson tripping balls on LSD. Who know's, maybe we did at some point?
