So who is Stan Freberg? "Stan has been doing historical satire for
many years, and regular listeners to his 1957 Freberg CBS radio series
will no doubt remember his riotous take-offs...
Over the past decade, master satirist Stan Freberg has been making quite a
bit of history on his own, not only as a star of radio and TV, but as the
man who actually pioneered the now-booming field of comedy recording. For it
was the tremendous success of such Frebergian funnies as St. George and the
Dragonet, The Yellow Rose of Texas, and the controversial Yuletide classic
Green Chri$tma$ which opened the floodgates for the current rash of hi-fi
humor for the home. More recently he has extended his talents to the world
of advertising, where he has been setting Madison Avenue on its grey flannel
ear with his brilliant comedy commercials for both radio and TV.
