As you probably already know, Paul Winchell died this past Friday at the age of 82. While many of you younger folk knew him as the voice of Tigger, I remember him as the man behind Jerry Mahoney and Knucklehead Smiff, the "stars" of my favorite kids show, Winchell-Mahoney Time. He also invented an early version of the artificial heart. And he apparently was a terrible husband and father. However, he did leave us a pretty cool legacy: His daughter April, DJ, blogger and caretaker of the most amazing audio collection of fun crap I've ever seen/heard on the internets. Looking for a Gregorian chant version of "Smells Like Teen Spirit?" She's got it. Kentucky Fried Chicken Employee Training Tapes? Yep, you betcha. Abba covers in Hindi? Hanji! (Yes, sir!)
To destroy what little free time you have, click April's picture and get lost in her wonderful collection of oddities.
And a fond Scotty, waddy, doo-doo to all former members of the Winchell-Mahoney Club.
