#210 – Tommy James of the Shondells – Hanky Panky, Mony Mony & Other Tales

Tommy James of the Shondells was our very first interview on Icon Fetch.  Now, 209 shows later, he returns with an extensive talk about the stories behind some of his biggest hits: The unbelievable tale of his rise to fame with “Hanky Panky,” the party classic “Mony Mony,” the bubblegum confection of “I Think We’re Alone Now,” the psychedelic “Crimson & Clover,” the anti-war “Sweet Cherry Wine,” and the heavenly “Crystal Blue Persuasion.”  He also updates on his book Me the Mob and the Music and how it’s going to be turned into a major motion picture.
