I work for/with Carl's daughter Chrissy Mauch and she tells me he hasn't changed a bit. Some great stuff from Bum on this show as well.

Sports fans will always remember the 1970's Bum Phillips's Houston Oiler football team as one of the most exciting and colorful teams in all of pro sports. In December of 1978 near the height of Oiler mania, my wife Sandra and I wrote and I performed a parody of "The Twelve Days of Christmas" entitled "The Twelve Days of Oiler Christmas" on the GOOD MORNING HOUSTON television show starring my friends Don Nelson and Jan Glenn. Originally intended as just a fun tribute to the Oilers, to everyone's amazement, the station was flooded with calls from viewers and other TV and radio stations in Houston wanting a record of the song. (See what I mean about Oiler mania?) I recorded the song later that morning and by that evening it was being played 24/7 on every radio and TV station in town. Go figure. The next day I was summoned to Houston Oiler's owner Bud Adams' office and was asked to write a song to spearhead a popular new promotion called "Luv Ya Blue" that the team was going to use as a focal point for the next ('79 - '80) season. I wrote and recorded "Luv Ya Blue" and introduced it at the famous Oiler's pep rally at the Astrodome following a their heartbreaking loss to Pittsburgh in the '78 playoffs. The next season I performed with my "Luv Ya Blue Band" at every Oilers home game in the Astrodome. What a kick!

Cannonball is on that Oilers hits album. Mack Hayes' stuff was more than cheesy but people ate it up. I remember them playing at home games on a stage in the corner of the endzone.

Those Columbia Blue Cowboys Hats... my dad still has his, put away in like 1982. I remember he bought it at Cutter Bill on Westheimer by the Galleria.
