An Evening With Groucho

Post by Kitty » Wed Dec 27, 2017 9:50 pm

This is not really old time radio --- but he was definitely on radio back in the old days. Since I learned about and found this on an old time radio site (with the stories separated into individual sound files :roll: ), I'm going to post it here for you to enjoy. It is so neat!!

Groucho was something. That's Dick Cavett introducing him, I believe, isn't it?

Yes it is! He has a very recognizable voice, doesn't he?

That song that Groucho sings later, “Everybody Works But Father”—have you heard that one before? That’s one of my favorite old cylinder recordings.

No, I'd never heard that one before this.

Weird song!!

I really liked the song he sang about dad. It was great.... Really sweet.
