Today's Tune: "Operator" By Jim Croce

Lily Tomlin as telephone operator Ernestine.

Happy birthday to Lily Tomlin, one of the funniest women to ever live. Tomlin was born on September 1, 1939. She is an award winning American comedian, actress, writer and producer. I grew up watching, listening and laughing to the humor of Lily Tomlin. She has created many hilarious characters, which she has portrayed on various television shows (Rowan And Martin's Laugh-In, Saturday Night Live, Murphy Brown) and in movies ('All Of Me', 'Getting Away With Murder', 'Orange County') throughout many years. One of the favorites of most people is a snorting, wisecracking and scheming telephone operator, Ernestine. Picking the 'Today's Tune' with that naughty character in mind, the appropriate choice has to be "Operator (That's Not The Way It Feels)" by the late, great American singer and songwriter Jim Croce.

What a great clip. I'm an absolute sucker for Jim Croce's music, and it's good to see that he could perform so well live.

Hey Kam,
Over the last couple days, it seems like every time I turn on the radio, they play one of his songs. That's fine with me, because I'v always loved his music. Thanks for stopping by.
