This afternoon our ‘Tickets @ 2’ song is “Never Can Say Goodbye” a 1971 hit for The Jackson 5.
The song was written by Clifton Davis, who was a star on the TV shows That’s My Mama, and Amen, as well as the movie Any Given Sunday.
Gloria Gaynor covered the song in 1974 – it was her first Top 40 hit. She went to #1 with it. The Jackson 5 version finished at # 2 on the music chart..
When we play the Jackson 5’s version between two and three we’ll take caller #7 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to a summer tradition at the Bowl, the Grease Sing-A-long at the Hollywood Bowl Saturday July 13th.
