78s fRom HeLL: Garry Moore - Ode To A Cow

Prior to many years as a genial host of game shows, talk shows, and variety shows on TV,
Garry Moore was announcer, sidekick, and straightman to Jimmy Durante on his radio show.

One of his featured bits as 'Durante's Boy' was 'Culture Corner'. Here's one of my favorites from a 1946 Decca album collection of those 'original monologues with music'.

(Please try to disregard what looks suspiciously like old bloodstains on the weathered album cover.)
