Happy Birthday…

“Well, uh… you know, uh… what can I say? The idea that his (PDQ Bach’s) works were actually written by Christopher Marlowe seems ridiculous. Aside from the stylistic problems involved, I’m sure Marlowe could have done a better job.” “Die dee die dee die dee die…” “Agnus and her sister Doris Day-um… Kimosabe watch-um what you say-um…” Professor Peter Schickele – whose birthday we remember on this date. The incomparable Iphigenia, which ends entirely too soon for my taste. Enjoy! Happy Birthday, to a man I’ve been privileged to see in concert several times, and who continues to give me belly laughs, to this very day. Long live PDQ Bach!   Image found here.   Advertisements
