CRAGG Live with Dick "Daddy Dewdrop" Monda - May 27th, 2017 (Post Show Notes)

CRAGG Live - May 27th, 2017 (Post Show Notes)

Guest:  Dick Monda aka "Daddy Dewdrop"

So many times an actor known as a "character actor" is downplayed in their celebrity status...even though THESE are the actors that you remember distinctly, even for their minimal moments on screen.  The same can be said for musical artists who are given the label "one hit wonders".  We here at Cult Radio don't think that this label should come with any kind of negative connotation.  In fact, it should be a badge of HONOR... (even one hit is more than MOST people have had) and there is NO denying that these songs are undoubtedly the songs that stick with you and replay over and over in the memory of your lives. 
In this episodes, join us as we chat with the singer/songwriter Dick Monda (aka Daddy Dewdrop), a notable, multi-recording artist who is perhaps best known for his hit song Chick-A-Boom (Don't Ya Jes Love It)...

Listen in as we talk with Daddy Dewdrop himself for approx an hour and discuss everything from his early career as a vaudeville performer and a child actor (including in "The Eddie Cantor Story") to the genesis of "Chick-A-Boom".  Find out exactly how Chick-A-Boom is connected to the Filmation TV Show "Sabrina and the Groovie Goolies" and how one of Daddy Dewdrop's songs came to be recorded by The Beatles' Ringo Starr.  Plus, get an update on Daddy Dewdrop's current and upcoming musical projects!  Make sure to visit Daddy Dewdrop online at  If you'd like to hear only the interview with Dick 'Daddy Dewdrop' Monda, click HERE

PLUS stay tuned to hear Ghosty's CRAGG Rock segment for the week, paying tribute to Sir Roger Moore.

At the end of CRAGG Live, we treat listeners to a special interview session with Terry & Tiffany DuFoe where THEY are interviewed by previous Cult Radio host Rustbucket.  Hear/learn everything you wanted to know about Terry and Tiff... but were afraid to ask in these candid interview segments (circa 2011)!
