Pardon My Blooper

I’ve entered another album by Kermit before but this entry is for a whole series of albums. Some are missing or just not entered yet but from the Pardon My Blooper collection, I have Volumes 1, 2, 3 and 5. I haven’t listened to these just yet so there’s not much more I can tell you aside from they all say the same thing; An Album of Radio and TV’s Most Hilarious Boners. There are so many other albums I want to listen to, but these are now added to the mystery pile!

When Irish Eyes Are Smiling

Should have posted this yesterday for St. Patty’s Day! Ah well, better late than never right?!

Mitchell William “Mitch” Miller (July 4, 1911 – July 31, 2010) was prominent in the American music industry. Miller was involved in almost all aspects of the industry. He was one of the most influential people in American popular music during the 1950s and early 1960s, both as the head of A&R at Columbia Records and as a best-selling recording artist with an NBC television series, Sing Along with Mitch. A graduate of the Eastman School of Music of the University of Rochester in the early 1930s, Miller began his musical career as an accomplished player of the oboe and English horn, and recorded several highly regarded classical albums featuring his instrumental work, but he is best remembered as a conductor, choral director, television performer and recording executive.

1950′s Rock N’ Roll

Sometimes, you run into various artist mixes and despite the mix, it’s not that great. This isn’t one of those. I remember songs like Earth Angel and My Boyfriend’s Back from my dad when I was a kid. Of course, I’d run around the house screaming “Great Balls of Fire” too!!

The Third Woody Allen Album

Woody Allen (born Allan Stewart Konigsberg, December 1, 1935) is an American screenwriter, director, actor, comedian, author, playwright, and musician whose career spans over half a century.

He began as a comedy writer in the 1950s, penning jokes and scripts for television and also publishing several books of short humor pieces. In the early 1960s, Allen started performing as a stand-up comic, emphasizing monologues rather than traditional jokes. As a comic, he developed the persona of an insecure, intellectual, fretful nebbish, which he insists is quite different from his real-life personality.

The Band that Launched a Thousand Bands

The Ventures are an American instrumental rock band formed in 1958 in Tacoma, Washington. Founded by Don Wilson and Bob Bogle, the group in its various incarnations has had an enduring impact on the development of music worldwide. With over 100 million records sold, the group is the best-selling instrumental band of all time. In 2008, the Ventures were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Their instrumental virtuosity, experimentation with guitar effects, and unique sound laid the groundwork for innumerable groups, earning them the moniker “The Band that Launched a Thousand Bands”. While their popularity in the United States waned in the 1970s, the group remains revered in Japan, where they still tour regularly to this day.

My dad had so many albums from The Ventures, this is actually just the start of what I have!
