THEN... The Stan Freberg Show
This first show starts with a brilliant premise: Freberg as himself talking with the many characters he had created on records. The rebel yell "Yeeeee-ha!" blares from the bombastic Texan. "Dayyyyyyyyyy-oh!" shouts his Harry Belafonte sound-alike. Other characters from other records jump in. Soon an argument breaks out as to which one is the real Stan Freberg until they shout in unison, "We’re ALL Stan Freberg." "Frightening," says Freberg. Next, Freberg interviews a Frenchman through an interpreter (Butler). The Frenchman has the unusual talent of playing "Lullaby of Birdland" on "tuned sheep" by having them ring the bells around their necks every time he hit them on their heads with his crook. This is a hilarious use of sound effects and a great example of how to get laughs through timing without much dialogue. The remainder of the program is giving over to Freberg’s savage satirical fantasy on Las Vegas: "Incident at Las Varoces", about two Nevada hotels The el Sodom and the Rancho Gammorah. Originally intended as a running installment in something he called "Freberg’s Fables," nothing like it was attempted on the series again. The controversy over the ending insured Freberg would stick to somewhat safer territory. Too bad. It is perhaps his greatest work, an extended routine with a series of smaller routines inside of it, chock-full of current event references, timely social satire, clever songs, and building to a climax unsurpassed in radio comedy.1.
