UWA 44: Life at 78 rpm

I emerge from the Attic covered with dust and shellac. We begin on a serious note, bringing renditions of "Trees" by John Charles Thomas and Ponchielli's "Dance of the Hours."

Moving from the sublime to the ridiculous, here are "I Want to Be Bad" by Helen Kane, who was boop-boop-a-dooping before Betty, and in fact she boops in this song at least once ... the immortal "I'm My Own Grandpa" by Lonzo and Oscar ... and "Yingle Bells" by Yogi Yorgesson.

If you're feeling a little down - we had six inches of snow over the weekend so I understand - The Revelers remind us that "Just Around the Corner" could be sunshine. And Jonathan Coulton offers the sounds of the season from "Chiron Beta Prime."
