Mercoledi Musciale

Another video by some long forgotten comedian who use to yell at the audience, I can't - or rather don't want to - remember his name, made one of those memory drawers pop open.

I suddenly had a flashback to sitting in Teresa Michaelski's basement rec room listening to CHUM radio and reading some fan magazine as we listened to the latest Elvis Presley hit.

Watching this video I can see today why we were all so taken by Elvis - the man and the voice - at the time. He was young, beautiful, fresh and, dare I say anything so cliche, spoke for my generation. And he wasn't the caricature that he was to become as he, and we, aged.
