Anniversary of KFJC Marathon – LOUIE of the Week


On Friday, August 19, 1983, KFJC began what turned out to be a major turning point in LOUIE LOUIE history with the MAXIMUM LOUIE LOUIE marathon:

1) The first meeting of Richard Berry, author of the song LOUIE LOUIE and Jack Ely, original vocalist with the Kingsmen, whose voice was heard on the world’s most popular version of the song.

2) A 63 hour marathon celebrating the song, with over 800 unique versions.

A world record worth acknowledging? We think so.

3) The starting point for what has turned into a massively ambitious documentary project, that is still a work-in-progress….

Yes, it is still happening…
