We had a Spike Jones album when I was a kid. It was very funny and we listened to it all the time. Unfortunately I don't know what became of it over the years.

My parents had a number of these records that I didn't know they possessed until it came time to clean out their house to ready it for sale. Redd Foxx and Rusty Warren were among them. Although their routines seem tame now, I understand why they didn't let the kids listen.

I remember the records from my great grandmother's Edison Victrola. It was one of the hand cranked ones that stored the power in a spring. I loved listening to Barney Google and my other favorite was Uncle Ed Buys an Automobile. My mom stills has the player. The records are like a half inch thick. It was painted in a heavy thick lead coat of tan paint that I'm told was a trendy color of the time. It took a lot of work to get down to the wood.

Glad to see Europe wasn't the only place in the 1940s where casual anti-Semitism was considered funny...
