I have the Tim Moore version of "Second Ave" on a 70's soft rock compilation (on LP), but I do recall the Art Garfunkel version.

"Second Avenue" is new to me.  Casey seems to adore it.  I think it almost out-Breads Bread.  Almost.

(Hey, I live just off Second Ave!)

It's new to me too.  Do I get points for hearing "Jersey City" and immediately knowing it was Kool & the Gang?

Sure, there were many double-entendre jokes about that song back then.

great anecdote about Wolfman Jack's tenure on that Mexican Radio Station:  "The station was so powerful -- 250,000 watts - that you could drive from NYC to LA and never lose the signal."
