Song of the Day: Charlie Callas “Drum Boogie”

The late, great comedian Charlie Callas was born on this day in 1924. In addition to being one of the funniest people I ever saw, he was also a fantastic drummer. In this clip from The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, on which he was a frequent guest, Charlie plays Gene Krupa’s "Drum Boogie" with Doc Severinen and the NBC Orchestra. The video quality is not the best, but it’ll give you some idea.
