One of the highlights of visiting my grandparents when I was little was being able to wheedle Grandpa into firing up the huge cabinet radio/record player and playing a Spike Jones 78 for us. This is one of the ones he'd treat us to:

The Man on the Flying Trapeze, performed by Spike Jones & His City Slickers, with vocals by Doodles Weaver (uncle of Sigourney). Recorded March 24, 1947.
