"Zoot! Are we livin'?"
When not Roadtripping, I've been known to sing things. I adore novety songs and I'm also a SUPER fan of the late Betty Hutton. These worlds are converging later this month when our old-time radio troupe takes on a "Command Performance" show wherein I will tackle an impersonation of Ms. Hutton singing the hyper-bouncy, "Murder, He Says."
Betty was called "America's #1 Jitterbug", and Bob Hope referred to her as "a vitamin pill with legs". I'll use an amusement park reference: "a musical Mad Mouse". This song has more jumps, turns, spins and slides than the aforementioned mini coaster.
I'd visit with you longer, but I'm in training!
