Let Me Tell You A Story


Today we have a very interesting album to share with you. It's entitled "My Favorite Story". I picked this album up from an antique store about 5 or 6 years ago. They had boxes of comedy records that they just wanted to get rid of. They were all in mint condition and were products of a long defunct radio station. The owner made me an offer I could not refuse and I took the whole lot home for next to nothing. Upon going through the records at home, I came across this one. The cover really intrigued me in that it had the faces of some of the most famous people of the radio era on the cover. The most interesting to me was Groucho Marx. However, other celebrities such as Jack Benny, Bob Hope, Phil Silvers, Danny Thomas, Lucille Ball, Joey Bishop, George Jessel, Gene Kelley, Red Skeleton, Art Linkletter and Jimmy Stewart all graced the cover. Upon listing to the album I was thrilled to learn that each of those stars had their own funny story to tell. Kind of like a book of jokes read by famous people. I loved it and have shared it with many of my friends. Now I share it with you. Hosted by the master of ceremonies, Bing Crosby, here is "My Favorite Story". Enjoy!
