Nashville Cats/Noshville Katz

Former WCBS-FM DJ Bob Shannon set up a message board to discuss oldies music.  Today there was a thread about the novelty song Noshville Katz.  Back it 1967 the Lovin' Spoonful had a hit with Nashville Cats which I have on vinyl.  Murray the K played a parody of that song called Noshville Katz which by the Lovin' Cohens which is about a man who owns a kosher deli.  I used my Googling skills and found it on a radio show on WFMU.  I was able to download an mp3 version of it.  If anybody reading this blog is interested, I can send you the file.

I saw your offer for the file of Noshville Katz. If you could forward that file I would love to have it. I heard the song 40 years ago and nearly fell off my chair laughing. I've often wondered how to find a copy. Thanks you for your kindness. Jon Kaufman, San Diego, Ca.
