On Saturday night, some friends and I visited a collector of rare 78s and he played this delightfully raunchy 1936 tune "Get 'Em From The Peanut Man (Hot Nuts)" by Lil Johnson. Another one of Lil's lovely ditties, also from 1936, is "Press My Button (Ring My Bell)" with the fine lyrics of "Come on baby, let's have some fun / Just put your hot dog in my bun." Lil Johnson on Amazon (Thanks, Dick!)
