Favoriting Merrily We Roll Along with MHLee: Playlist from March 3, 2023 Favoriting

MHLee's avatar View MHLee's profile Favoriting

Merrily We Roll Along is a mish-mash of high energy lunacy, reverence, and irreverence for forgotten pop stars, love for Saturday morning cartoons, and exploration of the side of Bandcamp where I seem to be the only one purchasing. Bringing to you the odd and the upbeat from a growing collection of pre-rock novelties, classic and neo-Vaudeville, jug bands, polka, klezmer, and more at the convenient hour of 8-9 AM EST, Merrily We Roll Along starts the day off with a little light-hearted musical tomfoolery cut with an occasional comedy sketch. It's organic, free-range, cheese with the occasional onion thrown in.

Yes, that is the voice of Betty Boop. Did not know, but makes sense, that she also did Olive Oyl.

There is Betty Boop musical in development and there is preemptive strike against Helen Kane.

Enjoying listening to this again and your back announcements and summary of available information is tops.
