Song of the day

"William Tell Overture", by Spike Jones. Musical comedy doesn't necessarily date terribly well. Here is an example. The best way to describe this is "quaint". (There are other ways.)

It was played every Melbourne Cup day on the local ABC radio station. Maybe it still is. It was one of the highlights of my year, along with Christmas Day and the Melbourne Show. I had no idea what it was called or who it was by. I only knew it as the Beetlebaum song. It took the Internet no more than a couple of minutes to reveal the truth.

Apologies for the lack of activity around here. There's a whole lotta workin' goin' on.
