"And when we say hammer, let's bury a claw hammer in our little sister's forehead! Don't forget to tell mommy that the voices made you do it."

"And then I tie the other end of my scarf to the chandelier and make sure the knot's right under my left ear, and then I JUMP off the dining room table!"

What is the name of the background music of your announcement?
  Sun. 9/21/08 8:13am Mark:

By the way, do you have the 78rpm record called "Nina-Non" sung by Joni James(Released from MGM)? I have it, but it is so worn out so I can't listen it.
  Sun. 9/21/08 1:18pm Joe M.:

Hi, Mark--
The music I've been using lately is "Swaltzing with Faust" by Fats Waller. You can find it on a collection called "Fine Arabian Stuff" that came out on HighNote Records a few years ago. I think it's fairly available. The rest of the CD is good, too, Fats mostly doing public domain tunes at a 1939 session.

Unfortunately, I don't have any Joni James records, so I can't help you out there. Thanks for listening!

Enjoyed 'Don't Call Me Coach, Call Me George'. The Beachcombers were a big Las Vegas live band in the fifties. Have no idea who the lady singing with them was. That record was played on Australian radio in 1953. Now, here's a record I haven't heard since 1957 [or 58]... 'Boppin' In a Sack' by The Lane Brothers [RCA]. Do you think I might be able to hear it one night on your show? A real rarity if ever there was one.
