On Dorian's shows "NiteCap" and "The Green Door", she'd often have celebrities do a little WFMU station IDs.
Thanks, Bob! Mason Adams is always welcome. The IRS still puts out tons of PSAs, available digitally. Somewhere I have a disk of Alison "The Nightbird" Steele doing Army recruitment ads.
Nice picture of abused TELLUS K7s!
Touch of Evil couldn't even be made in the old Hollywood! The real pity is not being able to see these classics on a big screen with lots of other people. A lot of my faves are not from the classic American studio era, but you should see The Grapes of Wrath, and A Face in the Crowd, Shadow of a Doubt. And for shorts, well, you have to look to the National Film Board of Canada.

For browsing the WFMU website while listening .... go to the about page and click on the link in the test there. A more comprehensive WFMU app will (we hope) be able to present the info available in the website formatted in a more iPhone friendly manner in the future. -- Webhamster Henry
Hey Bronwyn, welcome to the club, hope you don't stay long. Right after I was redundified, I got a "Congratulations on your second anniversary with us" card. The old right hand - left hand communication problem.

You should all get a copy of Gaylord's 2006 Marathon Premium AT A LOSS FOR WORDS, which collects 27 of these obscurities, including the aforementioned SAmmy version of Hawaii 5-0 and my fave, the Mission Impossible Theme by the Kane Triplets.
I not only know these and more, but I also have the Abe Burrows Songbook. Go dig around in the basement - they were a lot more songs on 78s. I once made an outgoing phone message with a bit of his "Pansy In My Garden" parody tenor song. You want to dig up his musical travelogue "Waukesha Natural Bridge" and his operetta parody "The Duke of Dittendorten." Burrows was known as a show doctor and wrote the book for Guys & Dolls. He also "talked" to HUAC, which kind of tarnished his reputation once HUAC was tarnished.
