Song Of The Day

This song popped up in my head this morning -- one of those odd ear-worms from long ago. I first discovered it when I heard a fellow disc jockey play it on my college radio station, WUSB/Long Island, in the mid-70s.

Entitled "The Intro and the Outro," recorded in 1967 by the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, it consists entirely of leader Neil Innes introducing a slew of band members -- real, fictional, and historical -- many of them obscure to anyone not from England in that era. See how many you recognize. My favorite is the Count Basie Orchestra on triangle.
