Doug: Could Mr K have been Krushav as in Nikita? There were lots of hillbilly songs in that era about sputnick and cold war paranoia involving Russia and Cuba.

Doug Schulkind

Tony,
Sheesh, you're probably right. The line "There's a big breeze blowin' from across the sea" surely would seem to indicate a foreign not domestic "Mr. K." At least there can be no mistake with Malvina Reynolds's finger-snapper! Whoever the mysterious Mr. K. is here, it's a wonder that this track didn't make onto the amazing 5-CD set from Bear Family called ATOMIC PLATTERS: Cold War Music from the Golden Age of Homeland Security. (Check it out here: http://www.atomicplatters.com/box_set.php).

Now here's one more tantalizing thing: If you check closely on the cover art to the collection of country gospel LOYAL RECORDS: I Saw the Light, there is a partial shot of what looks like the other side of the 45 containing Bill Franklin's "Mr. K. and Mr. D." The only word in the title that is visible appears to be "Space." So it appears that Franklin was rather fixated on the subject of interstellar travel. I've done a ton of Googling, but haven't found anything yet. Give a holler, friends, if you unearth more info.

Mr. K = Nikita Kruschev? First Secretary of the Godless Communist Party of the Soviet Union from 1953 to 1964 (according to Wikipedia, so it's probably wrong)?

This song is not about satan and Kennedy... it is about satan and Khrushchev... he was a leader of the Soviet Union, serving as General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union from 1953 to 1964, following the death of Joseph Stalin, and Chairman of the Council of Ministers from 1958 to 1964. Khrushchev was responsible for backing the progress of the world's early space program. When I was a child, this song was popular in my church, sung by a group The Senn Family from Lakeland, Flordia.
