Danny Kaye Was Never Better Than On This Show
I remember one skit that Kaye did on this show -- he played a long-haired classical piano maestro -- in full tux and tails -- sitting down majestically on his piano stool before a full orchestra --- majestically striking the keys of the grand piano in the intro of what we -- the presumed audience -- thought would be "Thaikovsky's Piano Concerto #1", but which ended up, instead, to be "In The Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia". The studio audience roared. So did I. Long hair flailing about as he pounded on the keys. The orchestral musical accompaniment was worthy of any classical music concert hall or orchestra you have ever heard on NPR. This skit was a true "classic". No one does this kind of stuff any more. What a shame.
