Spike Jones was great. The Bob and Ray show was great too. I used to listen to them on the radio along with some other radio programs such as  "The Green Hornet"

There were some great radio programs on the air in the 1970's when I was a kid - that were from rebroadcast from the 30's and 40's.

Wow--comments here! As for all those "current" groups you mentioned, Patricia, I've only heard of  yucky Yanni. I'm more out of it than Carl, but that's my choice.

Loved Spike and his nutty music. As far as comedy acts, it was Bob and Ray. And don't forget Roger Miller--like "you Can't Rollerskate in a Buffalo Herd"!

Carl, I like Spike Jones also.  Have a couple of CDs with his antics on them.

I'm also like you, but more so, in that I'm out of touch with modern music.  I don't recognize one artist on Patricia's list.

Patricia, as much as I love music, I'm so out of touch with many of the more recent artists.  I've only heard of five that you listed.  Brian Culbertson went to the same college as me, but not at the same time.  He's much younger.  His father was a long time high school band director at MacArthur High School, one of the big public schools in Decatur, Illinois where I went to college (Millikin University.)  He also attended Millikin but prior to when I was there.

That's a funny Ray Stevens clip, Spud.  Reminds me of the old Spike Jones music.  I grew up listening to my grandmother's Spike Jones records on 78rpm.

Same for me.  I also laughed at Homer & Jethro when I was a kid.

Generally speaking, I like music with a little life in it:
