My love for all things old and historical snared me another gem last night. While listening to an old music stream (20s-40s) in the shower, I was treated to a song by Ted Weems and his Orchestra called “Slapping The Bass”

It is too hokey and fun not to share. Where else are you going to get such great lyrics as, “I love the way they slap that grown up baby today!” Enjoy

PS – anyone (else besides Mike) notice how similar this song is to the intro of Next Stop Pottersville? Anyone (else) have any clue as to what TV show that song is referenced in? You can be on my tv trivia team if you get that right.
