The Comedy-O-Rama Hour...
Camp Waterlogg: Happy Birthday, Uncle Goopie! Redux

The Camp is preparing for a big birthday bash for former Camp Waterlogg owner, Uncle Goopie who is now a hermit in a cave who only comes out once a year on his birthday. Uncle Goopie is played by Bob Camp, co-creator of Ren & Stimpy.

Show creator Joe Bevilacqua says, ''Bob is not only a cartoonist, comic book artist, director, and producer, but a great actor as well! Bob plays him like Ernest T. Bass and the name comes from the This is Your Life sketch from Your Show of Shows with Morris, Sid Caesar and Carl Reiner.''





The Jazz-O-Rama Hour...
Remastered Rhapsodies


Host Joe Bev presents remastered 78 RPM records including:
Rhapsody in Blue - The Paul Whiteman Orchestra, conducted by Nat Shilkret, with George Gershwin on piano (1927)
Creole Rhapsody - Duke Ellington and His Famous Orchestra (1931)
Fifi's Rhapsody - The John Kirby Orchestra (1941)
Ebony Rhapsody - Duke Ellington and His Famous Orchestra (1934)
The Guy With The Slide Trombone (Hungarian Rhapsody) The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra (1945)
Melancholy Rhapsody - The Harry James Orchestra (1941)
Lazy Rhapsody - Duke Ellington and His Famous Orchestra (1932)
Second Rhapsody - The Paul Whiteman Orchestra, with George Gershwin on piano (1931)
What makes The Jazz-O-Rama Hour unique is that Bev remasters all the 78 RPM records he plays: ''Most CD collections compress these old recordings to limit the hiss, pops and crackles. The result is a loss of the full depth of the music. I bring back all the bass, treble and mid-tones, so you can hear it all," explains Bev, who adds that listeners will notice a soft high pitched hiss on "Rhapsody in Blue," a small price to pay for the rich sound of Whiteman's band.''

Length: 8.8 hrs
