I wonder how Williams managed that incredible bend in his voice. My guess is pliers and a very sensitive part of his anatomy.

I am delighted to see you are playing a half of the entire recorded reportoire of The Cook Sisters. In my opinion they are the best of all the sibling acts including Else and Doris Waters. I knew Doris when she was just a puddle.

Doris later married Carl Rivers. They spawned a fine family.

Thanks, Ted. You used to say we were the best - POTABLE, you called us.

A Long Memory:
I can assure Mr Idleburg that they weren't the only family spawned by that rascal. "Rivers, Stay 'Way From My Door" was a popular sentiment round here.

On the subject of water, is it true that Collins H. Driggs died drunk playing with his Novachord in the bath?

Thank you, Mr Edison. A very funny, very beautiful hour

Irma, no. Collins H. Driggs died of a heart attack.
