Listening to our local PBS radio station on the way in this morning (yes, it's what I listen to in the car all the time) and they discussed the death of Patrick McGoohan. Betty mentions it as well. He was the lead in a short TV series way back when called The Prisoner (you can see a clip at Rob's place). Prior to that show he played Secret Agent on a series called Dangerman. I don't know if the song or the show came first, but I do remember hearing this one a lot way back then, and after KNPR played it this morning it's still circling inside my head.
Of course, the seats in his car were probably not made of fine Corrinthian leather, but Ricardo also will not be telling us about that either. Bye guys.
