To the best of my knowledge this parody of Top Forty radio is the only recording by the ad hoc comedy duo of Arbogast and Ross. A bit of Googling reveals that (Bob) Arbogast was a writer and performer of radio commercials, and his partner is believed to be Stan Ross of the legendary Hollywood recording studio, Gold Star.

I have always felt that this exquisitely funny, two-sided '59 comedy 45 rpm was like Mad Magazine come to life. Here is part one. (link for a limited time only)Part two tomorrow.

Is it just me, or is this one-off a work of near genius?
