Several fine rock bands are featured on the Friday at the Hideout CD; one of them, Doug Brown and the Omens released a promotional flexidisc in support of the candidacy of Republican Senator Robert P. Griffin during his first Senate campaign in 1966.  The song, “Give Bob the Ball” – which championed his “youth and experience” – is included on this CD under the name “Youth and Experience”.
