“You asked for more, Mr. DJ …”  Recorded in 1955  featuring contemporary pop stars of the day each singing the National Guard jingle, “You’re in Style”  (as in you’re in style, when you help your country’s defense forces)  “Every time you play this … platter you help KEEP YOUR GUARD UP”

Tony pulled this one out from right under my nose at the last WFMU record fair.   What a find!  Wins for most category tags.  Creepy and wonderful.  Best Canadian cover I’ve ever seen.  “Pour Tout Le Monde”  Les Ventrillaires  Montagnard Records   This is a Canadian comedy label that put out lots of “adult” comedy records – like our Dooto or Adam and FAX labels in the states.
