Sourdough Lyr Req: Chirkendoose? / The Churkendoose (59* d) RE: Lyr Req: The Churkendoose 10 Dec 05

I loved "The Churkendoose" and remembered it was Ray Bolger but learning it was the Mitch Miller group backing him was a surprise.

Another musical record fondly remembered from my distant childhood is "Tubby the Tuba" which I felt lucky to find as an mp3 not long ago.

I also had a favorite non-musical record called "Why We Sleep" which was an explanation for children about why we do spend a third of our lives asleep. I found it fascinating and listened to it as often as the others.

My all-time favorite, I still have it, all the 78s in their original album. According to the inscription, I received it on my fourth birthday from my grandparents. It was called, "Peter on the Roof", or at least that's what I thought it was called. Apparently my family thought this was cute so no one ever corrected me. When I learned to read I discovered the real name was "Peter and the Wolf". The narrator is Basil Rathbone. It is a wonderful production.

I've just finished reading "War and Peace" and there is a wolf hunt that is a part of the story. As I read, I remembered Peter and the Wolf and understood it better seeing how much a part of Russian culture the wolf hunt was.
