Don’t Buy the Liverwurst

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

Of all my parents’ records, I might have listened to Allan Sherman the most when I was little. ┬áMaybe the William Tell Overture.

I just spent the last hour listening to all these old songs and they still make me laugh, although I now realize that I didn’t get a lot of the jokes as a kid. Who the heck is Billy Sol?

Do I have some song about Bernie Madoff that my kids are going to love?


Billy Sol was Billy Sol Estes who was a corrupt grain dealer (I think); his crimes would be small potatoes today.

My favorite is still “Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh.”
