It seems that the song credited to Jim Gaerhart's promotional 45, "Clarence The Geoduck" for the Russell Company is actually a regional favorite.

Many sources credit the "Gooey Duck Song" to Ron Konzak and Jerry and Judy Elfendahl and performed by the group Pierymplezak. It was popular in the Seattle area, and often reproduced in Cub Scout song books.

There is a google video using the same same song you have credited to "Jim Gaerhart" actually claimed to be: "by harpmaker-storyteller Ron Konzak of Washington State, along with Judy and Jerry Elfendahl, © 1972 Acme Music. All rights reserved. Jerry is a diver who is part of a new industry that harvests the geoduck commercially in the Pacific Northwest."

Watch and listen to the video:

Thank you for the information on Ron Zonkak & erry and Judy Elfendahl's version of, "Dig a Duck a Day," a long time Northwest favorite -- though seldom sung in Japanese and English. I've had the record for probably 20 years and there was no credit provided on the singers. I'll give credit in the future.

As The WFMU person with the most Autoharps (7 or so), I salute any Bryan Bowers recordings.
Remember: You hear _more_ autoharp music on WFMU!

GREAT JUMPIN' ICEBERGS!!! Al Kelly was a famed comedian who specialized in double talk and Yiddish nonsensical talk - all at the same time!

After many years on the vaudeville circuit and finding no luck in Hollywood, Kelly found success on the new medium of television.

Al first cut his teeth on the old Ed Sullivan "Toast Of The Town" show back in 1949 and bounced around many television variety shows of the day - most notably with Ernie Kovacs in the late 1950s!

This is truly an amazing find - thank you for sharing this!
