Terra Haute, Indiana native Scatman Crothers, telling you to keep that coffee hot and make a lot.
You might know him better from seeing him on Chico and the Man, or in the movie The Shining. But Scatman Crothers had a long career before that.
He played drums with Slim Gaillard and recorded bebop, blues, swing, scat and old-style jazz.
In 1948 he met Phil Harris and the two of them recorded a song called “Chattanoogie Shoe Shine Boy”.
Hey! We gotta play that on our “Shoes” show!
