Saturday 9: (I Got Spurs That) Jingle Jangle Jingle (1942)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
6) Kyser suffered from arthritis and wanted to retire from touring in the mid-1940s but he couldn't because he was contractually committed to concert appearances. Is there anything on today's to-do list you don't really feel like doing? Nothing in particular. It's just that Saturday will be a busy day and I'd rather just be lazy.
7) Kay was a popular radio personality who combined music with comedy and quizzes. Today's most popular quiz shows are Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune. On which show would you be a more successful contestant: Jeopardy! or Wheel of Fortune? Well, the puzzles on Wheel of Fortune always look so damn easy, so I'll go with that.
8) In 1942, the year this record was popular, Aretha Franklin was born. What's your favorite Aretha Franklin song? Here's my favorite song from my favorite Aretha album. BTW, Jennifer Hudson wears this jacket in the biopic. I love that attention to detail.
9) Random question: Do you sing in the shower? Every morning.
