40 Year Itch: Hung Like a Hebrew National

The Return of Ron Fields (language)

   The ultra - cool Bill Murray is late night progressive FM radio DJ Mel Brewer and Christopher Guest is Ron Fields, an English (?) manager who has found a new band in this track from National Lampoon's Goodbye Pop album. For reasons they will hopefully be apparent, this was one of the funniest things my high school friends and I had ever heard.
    The album contains hilarious takes on Bob Dylan, Neil Young and, with "Art Rock Suite", introduces us to Sid Gormless of Dog's Breakfast, an early version of Spinal Tap's Nigel Tufnel.

Murray and Guest also teamed up on this somewhat comedic preview of the 1976 Super Bowl.
