No one in this world, so far as I know...has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people.

Ah, the Interlude Period, as in a temporary break in the action. That does kinda fit the Doggie In the Window / Mama Will Bark Era. It just doesn't seem to measure up to the intensity of the big band years or the rockabilly years in terms of exciting music. Some stuff, sure, but decidedly bland by comparison with that which surrounded it.The armchair social historian in me wants to find an explanation for all that by looking st the folks who had just survived a horrific war and found great comfort in the peacefulness of Dinah Shore records and the escapist humor of Spike Jones. Has there ever been another act that came close to the zany sounds of Spike? Ever? And for ten years America loved that stuff. Gotta ask - why?Sent from my iPod - which explainz any bad typjngOn Apr 24, 2014, at 7:40 AM, Thomas Brown  wrote:> I like this one....>>> http://home.earthlink.net/~jaymar41/InterludeTP.html>>>> -----Original Message-----> From: Rodger J.
