Sheldon Allman had a career in show biz that few have equalled As a voice actor and songwriter, he provided the singing voice for Mister Ed, and wrote the two Mr. Ed songs featured in the episode Ed The Songwriter. He also wrote the theme song to the animated TV show, Jay Ward's George of the Jungle, and had parts in numerous TV shows and movies in the 50's and 60's, from The Fugitive to In Cold Blood. His most memorable role was as one of the two aliens in The Twilight Zone episode, The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street.
In 1960, Allman released an album of demented cold war novelty songs called Folks Songs For the 21st Century. I found out about it on the tremendous Bear Family boxed set Atomic Platters (which also included a track by Janet Greene, The "Anti-Baez"). Out of the five CDs in the collection, Allman's two tracks were standouts for me: Crawl Out Through The Fallout and Radioactive Mama (MP3s).
