Cocktails For Two, And More
Here's what I'm doing Saturday: Having "Cocktails for Two." Served by Spike Jones. And listening to other great comedy/novelty songs broadcast by Tom Sandman as a belated April Fools program 5-7 p.m. Saturday on WMKV-FM (89.3) and on http://www.wmkvfm.org/
Sandman has an awesome classic comedy collection for "Sandman Standards" Saturday: Spike Jones, Stan Freberg, Groucho Marx, Tom Lehrer, Bob Hope, Warner Bros. cartoon voice Mel Blanc, and one of my father's favorite 78s, Tex Williams' "Smoke Smooke Smoke (That Cigarette)."
I know this isn't for everyone, but I love this stuff. Thanks, Tom. You'll put a smile on my face all weekend just thinking about Freberg's Lawrence Welk parody, or Spike Jones' butchering a classic like "Dance of the Hours."
