staffannouncer.com gets dozens of hits with people looking for the Carl Yastrzemski song. It was the masterwork of Longtime Boston Disc Jockey and WHDH Morning man Jess Cain. Sung to the tune of “Allelujah!,” The Yaz Song was an add-on to the LP record put out by WHDH following the unlikely 1967 season… Which saw the Red Sox fight their way into the World Series.

This is the original posting of this song on the Internet… There’s a YouTube video with the two images I scanned… and the song I digitized on someone else’s account— you can even hear the butcher job they did in cutting off my jingle.

Oh well… You’re here, so please enjoy THE ORIGINAL!!

A word of Warning before you click…The Song is VERY infectious. You’ll be singing it for hours, if not days. Consider yourself warned…. You’ll be walking around singing “CAAAAAAAAARL Yastrzemski…. CAAAAAAAAARL Yastrzemski…. CAAAAAAAAARL Yastrzemski…. The man we call Yaz, We Love Em!”impossible-label
