19 December: Hoosier Hot Shots: The Man With The Whiskers

Published December 19, 2020

It somehow warms my heart to know that 82 years ago, there were enough people who thought, "Hey, I want to own this record so that I can play it as many times as I want" to bring it to number 11 on the U.S. chart.

And, by the way, whatever happened to the slide whistle? You don't hear that on many recordings these days. Bring it back, I say.

Listen to 'The Man With The Whiskers' here.

This song is not available on Spotify, but the 2020 Advent Calendar entries that are, are collected in this playlist.










The Hoosier Hot Shots - they hit #11 on Billboard's Christmas chart.
