I always loved the Quincy Jones-composed theme song to 70s sitcom Sanford and Son, but up until a few minutes ago I'd never heard the entire piece: three minutes and six seconds of delightfully infectious, playfully bright instrumental pop-funk. It's called The Streetbeater, and its creative and ever-changing arrangement includes snippets of the rarely heard bass harmonica. The piece is just a hella lotta fun. [more inside]

This is the kinda hokey official Web site of Whitman Mayo, the actor who played Grady in Sanford and Son. Conan O'Brien made a big deal about this guy a little while, and not without a touch of Conanistic sarcasm.
