Beep! Beep! Novelty Song in 1958 -
And Delicious!

WQUA played this a lot. It was on the charts for 12 weeks.


In the same year, Jim Backus did this great novelty record, Delicious!, which we played at home. The laughter is infectious.

It apparently made it to #40 on the charts in 1958.

Jim Backus & Friend
Note: Jim is indicated by J, "Friend" by F.

Lots of laughing and Jim's diction gets a little slurred toward the end

F: Ooh we're gonna have fun.
J: Yes.

J: And champagne my dear, heh-heh.
