The Tune in Dan's Cafe finally answered the question of where that song I first heard on a vintage "American Top 40" radio show was on "Night Gallery"
9 June 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

After about 18 years of first hearing the tune "If You Leave Me Tonight, I'll Cry" by Jerry Wallace on a cassette tape of Casey Kasem's radio show, "American Top 40", from the week ending October 7, 1972, I finally watched the "Night Gallery" episode that Casey said the song originated from. The version of that song is different from the recorded version I heard so long ago in that Wallace truly sings by himself in the episode instead of with a chorus. Pernell Roberts and Susan Oliver are a tired married couple who stop at an abandoned bar with just the proprietor in attendance. When Roberts plays the jukebox, only one song is playing no matter what number is pressed. It's related to what happened to a young couple years ago when a murder took place. That's all I'll say except this was a most compelling episode that explored-via split-second cutting and some negative-inserted scenes-how explosively dangerous some couplings can be...
