Can't help but wonder if Wanda Jackson's new album, "The Party Ain't Over", has several roots in Theme Time Radio Hour, specifically producer Jack White being a devoted student of Bob's. Sounds as though TTRH might've introduced him to a few songs which he then had Wanda cover.

Thunder On The Mountain is obviously Bob's own song, but of the other tracks several were TTRH features:

- Rum & Coca Cola (The Andrews Sisters, 1945) "Drinking" episode
- Nervous Breakdown (Eddie Cochran, 1959) "Madness" episode
- Teach Me Tonight (Dinah Washington, 1954) "Thanksgiving Leftovers" episode
- Blue Yodel #6 (#1 by Bob Downen) "Texas" episode

All of the above all sit apart in the "odd" selection category. While Jack is well versed in music and records, when half the album is Bob / TTRH related, plus Jack having contributed to the show on a few episodes, you'd have to venture to guess that he was listening and learned a few things.
