Re: [ARSCLIST] blooper samples?
The record you mention was compiled by Kermit Schaeffer and was called,
I think, Best Of The Bloopers. These collections were quite popular in
their time. I think these may have been mail order products advertised
on UHF stations but my memory may be faulty in this regard. I recall all
those bloopers too...to my pre-adolescent sensibility these uncensored
moments were quite hilarious.

I might have a record like that somewhere. In the 60's such albums were
popular. The most famous ones were an announcer introducing Herbert Hoover
as, something like "Heepert Hoober". There was Uncle Don, a kids performer.
He did a show and said something, thinking he was off mike, like; "that
ought to hold the little bastards." There was another of a sports caster,
really into the game, who sees a running play and screams: "look at that S-N
of a Bi-ch run."

Subject: [ARSCLIST] blooper samples?
I am going to be interviewed by the NPR radio show "On the Media," andfile.
today the producer surprised me with a request for recorded "bloopers"
of note -- the first time X, the biggest X, the most famous X, that sort
of thing. I already have Edison's "Around the world on the phonograph"
If anyone has other sound file examples to pass along, I'd appreciate
it. This is a rush request. I apologize for that, but the producer just
asked for illustrations.
