One of the top Google hits that brings people to PooterGeek is “Hello Mudder, Hello Fadder“. Ron Nilson posted a new comment to the relevant PooterGeek entry yesterday asking what classical piece Alan Sherman’s novelty record was based on. My dad provided the answer. It’s Ponchielli’s “Dance of the Hours” from La Gioconda. And I should have spelled it: “Hello Muddah, hello Faddah”.
Oh, and here’s the ringtone.

Thank you! Now I know Sherman filched from Ponchielli. But I now learn that the same song also was once featured in a Broadway production. True? If so, what ws the musical?
Goodness, some people are never satisfied. It might be this one.
