9/4/19 - Kodachrome - Paul Simon

HarpFac: Kodak was founded on this date. Some errors in OGR. 1) Kodak still exists. 2) Kodak did not make Polaroid cameras, Polaroid Corporation did. They did stop making Kodachrome film in 2009.

9/20/19 - One Fine Day - The Chiffons

HarpFac: For Jean. A much better song than Sugar Sugar by the Archies. Also, TK should know this isn't a Phil Spector song (gets the jail shot in) as its got Carole King written all over it.

9/30/19 - Catch the Wind (Slow Version) - Donovan

HarpFac: Has TK mentioned how this version is much better? I'm sure all 12 times this has been on OGR, its the slow version. The fast version sounds much more like Bob Dylan

10/2/19 - Maggie May - Rod Stewart

HarpFac: TKs believes this is the greatest thing Rod Stewart has ever done, only because he associates it with the US Open in 1971. They cut off the beginning guitar part. This is the 4 time its been OGR
