Fred de Cordova...not sure if he was more famous for being Johnny Carson's Executive Producer on the Tonight Show or for directing Ronald Reagan in "Bedtime For Bonzo"...
BTW, he also worked with George Burns & Gracie Allen, Amos & Andy, Frank Sinatra among many others...
And he and his wife would go on vacations together with their best friends, the Don Rickles's and Bob Newhart's...

You'll know who Fred Eaglesmith is...
He's Canadian, of course, of course, and is a seriously off-the-wall singer songwriter. Lots of cars, trains and aeroplane songs.
Some of my favorites are "Time to Get a Gun", "Freight Train", "Pontiac", "Wilder than Her", "White Trash", "Water in the Fuel' and, of course, "I Shot Your Dog".
And should you ever have a chance to see him live, you best be there!!
