Hi Whoo! Soooo..., is that 12" laquer LP in your pocket, or are you just happy to see (read) me?

@DJ MAC: evening Sir, it's been fascinating already, and you're just getting rollin' in the glomin', I used to know what that is...
  Tue. 2/11/14 8:11pm AG:

Think Lauder was perhaps saying "ye canna beat it." No matter, loving the show tonight...
  Tue. 2/11/14 8:13pm mk:

All us southern states are the same : )
But an Arkansas minstrel and a Louisianan? Night and day
  Tue. 2/11/14 8:28pm Phono-90:

A lot of this banter is striking for how familiar and UNarchaic it is, to these ears at least...
"Tannhauser"' pronounced like tan-hoi-zer

Anyone remember Bugs Bunny and the opera singer he destroyed... "LEOPOLD!!!"
  Tue. 2/11/14 8:31pm mk:

It would be interesting to hear what *was censored in those earlier phonographic periods..
  Tue. 2/11/14 8:32pm Jim Shulman:

Yup, TAHN-Hoyzer for a guide. The records were made in August of 1922, over three discs: Victor 74758, 74759, and 74768 (which were later doubled, with a filler side).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/11/14 8:32pm Santos L Halper:

And to think the DJs back then said the listeners didn't have the patience for a 2-sided single. Interesting arrangement though...
  Tue. 2/11/14 8:32pm mk:

*material
  Tue. 2/11/14 8:35pm Phono-90:

I do! All Baby--Boomers and older Gen Xers do...
You ciuld say it was near the too of the "Stowkastic Hit Parade" of fine mid-century classical music satire.........heheh
  Tue. 2/11/14 8:36pm Phono-90:

...the TOP of the...
Damn!
  Tue. 2/11/14 8:37pm Jim Shulman:

There are supposed to be three sides to this performance, Victor 74758, 74759, and 74768, recorded in August 1922
  Tue. 2/11/14 8:40pm Phono-90:

This was before Shield hooked up with Yarnell, right?
Uh-oh, is that THE "Dangerous Dan McGrew" ? Yesss!
  Tue. 2/11/14 8:45pm Phono-90:

Warblin' as opposed to whistlin'?
  Tue. 2/11/14 8:47pm mk:

Clifford Grey; another drink..?
  Tue. 2/11/14 8:54pm Phono-90:

mk: yeah, one imagines Kellogg doing his calls in bars, for drinks...
@ MAC what got me was the sheer quantity of different calls he could do.. You got a good one there yourself, just don't run a-foul of those Disney lawyers, they'll really cook your goose!
.....ok,sorry
  Tue. 2/11/14 8:55pm Phono-90:

...had a large portion of corn w/dinner
  Tue. 2/11/14 8:56pm Phono-90:
