Book Club Newsletter
Don't you just love novelty songs about H. V. Kaltenborn? What? You don't? What kind of a creep are you? Because according to this book I am reading for the Sturm Und Stang Book Club, everyone was just crazy for Joe E. Lewis's hilarious novelty songs about H. V. Kaltenborn, of which several long, long stanzas are lovingly transcribed by the author in all their topical hilarity. H. V. Kaltenborn! Yeah, I don't know who he is either. We're not supposed to discuss the book until we've all hit the middle. So I should keep my fat mush clamped. But come on! H. V. Kaltenborn! Pictured, H. V. Kaltenborn, the subject of so many delightful novelty songs. Just look at this guy! He's got "belly laughs" written all over him! PS: I have no regrets!
