Happy Birthday!

NYC: Tom Lehrer

was born 4/9/1928

He quit performing, saying, "Political satire became redundant the day Henry Kissenger won the nobel Peace Prize." [thanx snoopy1]

In Lehrer's 1953 idionymous 10-inch record, he describes his occupation as a relatively unsuccessful purveyor of optional pharmaceuticals to local school children. To supplement it, he would roll the occasional drunk.

        When the shades of night are falling,
        Comes a fellow everyone knows.
        It's the old dope peddler,
        Spreading joy wherever he goes.
        Every evening you will find him,
        Around our neighborhood.
        It's the old dope peddler
        Doing well by doing good.

                "The Old Dope Peddler," Lehrer

ALSO:
Princeton NJ: Paul Robeson was born 4/9/1898 (also born Apr 19 and Nov 9) died 1/23/1976 – only heard him live once – boy! I wish I could sing like that!

Early warning notice: This series of the Happy File noncontinues beginning April 16.
