Laughing It Up With Don Vappie

Oct 25, 2012

This is an unofficial test from the staff of Music Inside Out. Remember, this is ONLY a test:

Question: Who's funnier? 

A. Bruce Springsteen
B. Bob Dylan
C. Laurel and Hardy
D. Don Vappie
E. I hate tests.

If you answered D (Sorry, Bruce!), then tune into the show this week for a musical belly laugh. Don Vappie is a multi-instrumentalist and founder of the Creole Jazz Serenaders. He joins us for an hour of good fun. Expect performances by Laurel and Hardy, Bob Dylan and the great Vappie himself, whose many recordings include an ode to the onion.
