No, that's not it. Perhaps you'll spot a theme when the number of answers rises. The only thing I can tell you now is that the theme starts with an R (obviously!).

01. A tune about a New Orleans event, by three outstanding British jazzmen. One of them is best known for "Midnight in Moscow", another for "Stranger on the Shore", and the third for "Petite Fleur".
Well, the artists would be Kenny Ball, Mr. Acker Bilk, and Chris Barbour. I guess the song is about Mardi Gras?

08. We've got a mad dog, a whistledog and a faulty dog - this guy's got an atomic dog. How's that for dinner?
George clinton

26. UK band, named after a Star Trek character, with a song about a secret love(r)?
T'Pau but I'd have to come back for a title

29. He was born on Dec.25, 1907 in Rochester, NY, and died on Nov.18, 1994 in Delaware. One of his best known tunes is "Minnie the Moocher", but this song is about a hospital.
St. James Infirmary - Cab Calloway

While researching the backgrounds of the song (in order to provide the hints) I did stumble across the children's song you mention.
I don't know if there are any Dutch lyrics set to the tune (if so, I've never heard/sung them).

Somewhat. It's not just places (as in cities, towns, hamlets and the like), and I can also reveal that they're no more than approximately 2,400 miles apart. So basically...they're all on the same continent. :-X

Approximately 2,400 miles from Chicago to Los Angeles. Of course, different times had different routes/bypasses, so the overall length is argument of discussion, no doubt.

I've used various communities (large and small ones) along the Route, as well as several States. The Kansas stretch is only 12 miles, with three communities that were of no use to me - so I had to use the State. I've used Oklahoma and Texas, just because I could.

It is Valentine!  :)

Tennessee is neither in Texas nor Missouri, last time I checked. ;) (If you look at the notes, you'll see that nrs 37 and 2 are interchangeable).

I'm not sure, Philip. That's why I can't tell who's singing.

On one of the albums from Peter Sellers during the 60s, one of his characters was a popstar called Twit Conway.

It could very well be them...but then again, it could just as well be not.

        BOURBON Street Parade

08. George Clinton questioning his fast food dinner.
        Do Fries Go With That Shake?

21. Former member of the Pixies, thinking of moving to the west coast.
        LOS ANGELES - Frank Black

36. To tell the truth, I don't know who's singing this either! ;D

Well, no...it's just gone defunct. Some stretches are still in use, other stretches aren't. It became obsolete when the Interstate Highway system was installed. If I remember correctly, the Interstate Highway Act was signed in 1953 (or thereabout).
