John D. Loudermilk, a country singer...

...and prolific songwriter whose dozens of hits in the 1960s and ’70s included “Indian Reservation” by Paul Revere and the Raiders, died at age 82.

If you're about my age you'll remember this quirky tune from 1971 -- it was huge!

(By the way, isn't it nice to think about something else besides presidential politics and high school football?)

From Loudermilk's obit in the Times:

When John was 7, his father made him a ukulele from a cigar box and his mother taught him to play it.
