Bless you, Speedy, old Bean! You always "get it."Nineteen-Fifty-Two may have been the last really great year. ~ FreeThinke

I should have taken the trouble to give proper credit the brilliant satirist/lyricistSheldon Harnick, and to Alice Ghostley, who premiered The Boston Beguine in New Faces of 1952 -- the year after I came of age -- not chronologically (I turned 11 in 1952) but perceptually. I saw the show, and "got it," right away.I shall always be grateful to have been brought up in the New York Metropolitan area, and to have had the wonderful family I had.~ FT~ FT
...and I'll forever be grateful for having NOT grown up in the NYC metro area... but having experienced it ONLY after having come to age (going to college just outside of Great Neck). ;)
btw - pShaw censors everything I post. Liberals have no sense of humor!
I am totally unfamiliar with this tune -- maybe because it was released the year I was born.I do, of course, know of Alice Ghostley's television work.
BTW, I happen to own an authentic and COMPLETELY FUNCTIONAL RCA Victor Victrola -- mahogany cabinet and a free-standing unit. This Victrola is one of my treasured antiques.
