Program Description

Event Details

Due to a technical issue on the part of the presenter, this program has been postponed until Thursday, September 19 at 7pm. All existing reservations have been transferred to the new date.

Join us at 7pm on Thursday, May 30 for an entertaining and downright silly presentation from Dr. Joel Keller! “Novelty Songs” are quite different than “Pop Music Songs.” Although this statement is certainly true, there are many Novelty Songs that have crossed over into the Pop Music category. This program will examine the Novelty Song category and after sharing some information about the artist(s) and history of the music and where possible, most of the song will be played. There are 16 songs in this presentation, including “Mairzy Dotes and Dozy Dotes,” “Beep Beep,” “The Purple People Eater” and “My Ding-a-Ling.”

Registration is suggested and those who register with an email address will receive a reminder in advance of the program. Register below or call the library at 440-988-4230.
