The worst part of these biographical blogs is the ending of a friend. No I never met Allan Sherman, but I played My Son The Folk Singer, over and over again, until I know all the words. When I was still in middle school, I misspelled Mother to Muddah and ‘m not Jewish. I’m not sure if you ever heard of Allan Sherman, nor want to,, but in this blog, Hello Muddah Hello Fadduh Here is Allan Sherman Part Five, you will have to, for this is who I’m typing about.

Decline

Sherman’s career success was short-lived: after peaking in 1963, his popularity declined rather quickly. After the assassination of John F. Kennedy, impersonator Vaughn Meader vowed to never again do a Kennedy impression, and perhaps because of this ominous shadow – Meader was a very popular parody impressionist of the day – and the resulting reluctance to book such acts, the public saw less of Sherman’s type of comedy. Beginning in 1964, Sherman was among many American acts whose sales were affected badly by the British Invasion (which, in fair measure, Sherman skewered in the song “Pop Hates the Beatles”, a spoof of “Pop! Goes the Weasel”).

By 1965,...

A Top 40 hit

One track from My Son, the Nut, a spoof of summer camp entitled “Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh”, became a surprise novelty hit, reaching No. 2 on the national Billboard Hot 100 chart for three weeks in late summer 1963. The lyrics were sung to the tune of one segment of Ponchielli’s Dance of the Hours, familiar to the public because of its use in the Walt Disney film Fantasia. That December, Sherman’s “The Twelve Gifts of Christmas” single appeared on Billboard’s separate Christmas chart. Sherman had one other Top 40 hit, a 1965 take-off on the Petula Clark hit “Downtown” called “Crazy Downtown”, which spent one week at #40...

So far, Allan Sherman is my favorite performer who was born in the 1920’s. He makes me laugh and I need that in my life right now and he fills that need. I’m already to do my blog entitled Hello Buddah Hello Fadduh Here Is Allan Sherman Part Two, and I hope you need a laugh also, for I got a complete album for you to listen to. I’ll be working on my next blog for tomorrow morning, but until then, enjoy the album.

Song parodies

In 1951, Sherman recorded a 78-rpm single with veteran singer Sylvia Froos which contained “A Satchel and a Seck”, parodying “A Bushel and a Peck” from Guys and Dolls, coupled with “Jake’s Song”, parodying “Sam’s Song”, a contemporary hi...

Life And Times Of Judy Garland Part Nine

In Life And Times Of Judy Garland Part Nine, I’m typing you about Judy Garland downfall, how she went from a movie star, to a Tv actor. It’s hard to be up for so long that falling down a hole, to a cancelled Tv show. The drugs maybe an excuse, to her death, but I think, her fall played a big part of it. Read some more, and listen to my album of her, afterwards.

Life And Times Of Judy Garland Part Eight

Eight parts for someone I like to hear her do Over The Rainbow, but I like to get everything that has anything to with my favorite topic(I have other topics, like making up stories and watering my invisible car, with the door on the hood, where I can walk in and go to my invisible pool and bathtub where I have fashion models in. The only trouble is, I don’t know where I parked my invisible car at, who knows, I could get a ticket, from the invisible police, which means I have to go to the pound, where I got my invisible dog, that reminds me, I have to put a missing dog sign on my lawn, because I believe my invisible dog ran away. now back into to my reality, Here is Life And Times Of Judy Garland Part Eight.

Appearances on Bing Crosby’s radio show

Garland was a frequent guest on Kraft Music Hall, hosted by her friend Bing Crosby. Following Garland’s second suicide attempt, Crosby, knowing she was depressed and running out of money, invited her on to his radio show – the first of the new season, on October 11, 1950.

She was standing in the wings of it trembling with fear...
