I have recently begun watching the 11-hour DVD set of Vitaphone's jazz and big band shorts. And, after a short time I really appreciated the comedy acts that sometimes were interspersed throughout--they were a nice break from one song after another after another. However, in this final installment of the "Rambling 'Round Radio Row", I really, really hated the comedian as he grated on my nerves and my daughter kept yelling "fast-forward!" because the guy was just awful. His shtick was spoonerisms and it took him FOREVER just to say a sentence! Talk about the proverbial 'beating a dead horse'! Uggh! Despite this, the singing is better than normal--with three very nice songs. The most interesting was Baby Rose Marie's belting out a song--and it's nice to see her decades before she was a TV regular on "The Dick Van Dyke Show". In addition, Morton Downey, Sr. (father of the TV parasite from the 1980s) sings a decent rendition of "Irish Eyes". So, if you can fast-forward past the non-comedic comedian, the rest of this final short in the series is pretty decent.
