Frank McHugh was in 1933's Convention City, one of the most famous "lost" films of the golden age of Hollywood !

People have been joking all week about what Rex's Bowie tribute would sound like. Now we know—it sounds like "Alligator Man".

Sister of Matt McHugh (Pardon My Clutch) and Frank McHugh (many Warner films). Committed Suicide in 1954
  2:09pm Listener Don:

Bumps Blackwell Orchestra - only from Rex!
  2:10pm Cooh John:

How about playing the unitar with rocking pants?
  2:21pm Stooged:

Willie Duncan can be seen slapping his unitar on the Johnny Otis show (61) . UCLA has the KTTV archive and the keyword is "maxwell slide" to find the episode.
  2:24pm Leo Tard:

Is he playing the unitar in a unitard?
  2:27pm Sharon G:

That "Bird is the Word" guy sounds like Dan Akroyd attempting to throat-sing. Could be played on the "Vocal Fry" show.
  2:29pm Leo Tard:

she shoulda locked it in her shed !

Peanut butter?

See, without George Washington Carver we wouldn't have this song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm common:

we do all love peanut butter i think
  2:51pm Listener Don:

Probably Butterball came up with "Tall Tan & Fly" before Frankie Crocker.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:
