    Every now and again I run across someone like Oscar Levant. He was well known in his time, is completely unknown to me and most other people today [I think], and is perhaps worth noting for one reason or another. A few of his quotes are probably familiar. Also, it turns out that he was quite an accomplished person in many ways.

    I'd forgotten about him, but certainly recognized the name when I saw it. Used to hear his stuff all the time when I was a kid. (Of course, unlike some, not only radio, but also Oscar himself, already existed when I was a kid... :uhh: )

    Some of those quotes cracked me up! The one about Doris Day didn't hit until I read it a second time.

    I remember listening to my parents LPs as a kid. They had quite a few that were comedy routines, and one that I got a kick out of was done by Shelley Berman, whom I have never heard mentioned in the public domain. ....did a quick google and behold!

    Perhaps Michael Richards will end up teaching as USC. :biggrin:
