This is the full version of this classic song. The original 78 (pictured) removed about a minute so it could fit. The 78 cover states that the artist is Johnny Jones and the Peter Pan Rangers however the record itself states that it is Dick Edwards with the Peter Pan Orchestra. Whichever it is, I like this version even better than the more well-known versions by Gene Autry and Eddy Arnold. This was taken from an LP called Children’s Popular Songs and Stories on Twinkle Records.
PSA of the Day: YouTuber Sean Symons says he spotted a teenager who was texting while driving and reported him to the police. He then whipped out his camera and pursued his car for a while as the teen continued to text unmindful of his surroundings, with lamentably predictable results.
Don’t text and drive. (Also: Don’t film and drive.)
“Not Acceptable” is a powerful and compelling 30 second television PSA which gives voice to a variety of diverse communities each of whom expresses that it is not acceptable to call them by what were once common words, but are now recognized as offensive slurs. It culminates in actress and self-advocate Lauren Potter from “Glee” stating that it is not acceptable to use the word ‘retard’ and she and “Glee” co-star Jane Lynch make a call to action to stop using the word and to promote the acceptance and inclusion of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and to make their pledge online at http://r-word.org.
