A Taste of Minsky's

I have had much to say recently about Minsky's "Flugel Street" burlesque, which was intiated with great enthusiasm by Joey Faye and Sid Fields.  The only record that I had of this "Flugel Street" variant was Faye's scripts.  But my articles drew the attention of Thomas Williams, who hosts a Phil Silvers website called Gladaseeya!.  Williams directed me to a radio recording in which the Minsky version of "Flugel Street" is faithfully performed by Phil Silvers and Rags Ragland.

I recommend that you visit Mr. William's site at
