Foster Brooks is best known for his stage act as a "drunkard". But who could've known the man could also sing?
Brooks was a surprise guest on the syndicated country music series, POP! Goes The Country, hosted by Ralph Emery, and later, Tom T. Hall, in 1980, and delivers a cover of "Release Me", a song more closely associated with crooners like Engelbert Humperdinck.
This started when I was trying to find a commercial Brooks did a few years earlier for the Cole Muffler chain. He did the radio ads, and thought he did television spots for them, too. However, those are not available on YouTube. Yet.
