    Well...there is no 'Old & Tangy'.
    Also, they don't come with a photo of a bunny with one on it's head.

    Oddly enough, that's the nickname the girls down at the motor pool have given me.

    Although my favorite version of that was in Benny Goodman's 1938 Carnegie Hall Concert with Harry James, Count Basie, Teddy Wilson, Gene Krupa, Lionel Hampton, Cootie Williams, and Bobby Hackett. No video, unfortunately.

    I've listened to that one a few dozen times, too. The 8 minute studio/CD version may be my favorite. I listed Sing, Sing, Sing as one of my all time top 10 songs in that thread a while back. Never get tired of it, whether it's the 3 minute version to which we've danced quite a number of times, the 5 minute frenetic one I posted or the last 2 we discussed.

    I believe that is the correct semester and I think I may have been an usher for Major Attractions for that show.

    Have you seen the great version of it choreographed by Bob Fosse? Truly awesome.

    The network morning show Halloween festivities are more frantic and desperate this year. Nutso even.

    Good lord, Charlie Rose as Frankenstein on Colbert Show...it was ooky-making. Geebus, I thought Charlie was rather above that kind of stunt.

    Never watched much of the old Colbert show but it seems apparent that the new Late Night Show is kind of stinking up the place? Any experts have opinions?

    Maybe he should try conducting the show from connection to a suspension wire, as he once did at The Colbert Report.
