Satiric radio commentary for the 90s from the man who drained Lake Michigan and filled it with hot chocolate!!!

Harper's Index®: Frank Sinatra's Jeans, etc., etc.

Stan Freberg here with more actual statistics from "Harper's Index®." First, number of pairs of jeans that Frank Sinatra has ever owned? 0. Hmm...doesn't say if Frank ever rented any, though. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here with more statistics. Price paid at auction for a letter from Madonna to Dennis Rodman? $5175. Price paid for a rare letter from Eleanor Roosevelt? Only $250. Is something out of whack here?

Next, ratio of NBC's budget for next season of "ER" to the annual budget of New York's Bellevue Hospital? 1 to 1. Hmm...I wonder if Bellevue Hospital got picked up for another season.

And the remaining number of the 12 employees of Hawaii's last remaining ukelele factory who are hearing impaired? 5. Well, listening to loud ukelele music will do it to you every time.
