 American singer-songwriter who reached popularity in the 1940s, with a comeback in the 1970s. He is particularly remembered for his risqu? but cheerfully optimistic songs.

As I read it, he had a very interesting life...


Were you a big fan of his Joe?

 The Benny Hill in question, is an English comedian that had semi-rescue skits, usually involving young scantily clad young women.

   Ah, ...  you switched Benny's .....  Didn't recognize Benny Hill in the slide picture. Never cared for him much..  - more of a fan of Monty Python..
