Today, the LOUIE Report shares The Arnold-Hedgecock Experience recording of LOUIE LOUIE. This is a 1987 recording with Thomas K. Arnold & Roger Hedgecock.
Roger Hedgecock is a conservative talk radio host and former mayor of San Diego, California.
The Wikipedia page on Mr. Hedgecock describes how this collaboration came to be:
In 1986 he formed a band with well-known San Diego journalist Thomas K. Arnold called The Arnold-Hedgecock Experience. Arnold was a writer for the Reader, San Diego Magazine, the Los Angeles Times and numerous other publications; in the early 1980s he also engineered 1960s pop star Gary Puckett’s comeback. They recorded a cover of “Louie, Louie” and donated proceeds to St. Vincent de Paul, a local charity; they played several concerts around town, including opening for The Kingsmen in Oceanside in front of 10,000 people
