A good egg

humpty 001

Humpty Dumpty’s Album for Little Children  Bud Collyer  RCA Records (1958)  Bud Collyer supplied the voices of both Superman and his alter ego Clark Kent. A highlight of every Superman episode was the moment when Clark Kent transformed into Superman, an effect which Collyer conveyed by shifting voices while speaking the immortal phrase “This looks like a job for Superman!”. (Collyer’s voice deepened by an octave while making the transition from one identity to the other.)  Collyer went on to host Beat the Clock, and in 1956, became the host of To Tell the Truth on CBS.

Party for Your Right to Fright

The Bloody Dr. Shock  “Let There Be Fright”  Cougar Records   Magician Joseph Zawislak created a persona based on Roland (with John Zacherle’s permission) and hit the Philadelphia airwaves on WPHL-TV in 1969. His first show lasted only 13 weeks but protests brought him back and a cult had begun. He was on three different shows during his reign: Scream-In, Mad Theater and Horror Theater. He also brought on his young daughter Bubbles, on the air and she grew up along with his fans. Unfortunately, Joe died in 1979 at the young age of 42 years old. Philly fans still hold a spot in their hearts for Dr. Shock and so do we.

Homeland Vintage Jazz Record Covers

We love this!  To celebrate the television series Homeland and its season 2 finale on December 16th, Californian designer Ty Mattson of Mattson Creative created an excellent series of 12 Homeland inspired vintage jazz record covers.  “Last night was the finale of the second season of Homeland. To say that I am a huge fan would be an understatement! As a personal project, I set out to create a series of designs to celebrate the award-winning show. Playing off of the subtle theme of jazz that appears the storyline, I designed 12 vintage record covers inspired by the TV series.”
