Among the most popular numbers on the program are “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore,” which was written and first recorded by Duke Ellington in 1940; “Wichita Lineman,” which was written by Jimmy Webb and made famous by Arkansan Glen Campbell after he recorded it in 1968; and “Play That Funky Music,” the indomitable funk disco classic written by Wild Cherry lead singer Rob Parissi and recorded by the band in 1975.
