Crawdaddy! interview with Baby Gramps

on celluloid, “Scattergood Baines” [a radio program turned into a film], and Lord Buckley.

Crawdaddy!: Who does some of your favorite versions of the old-time songs, say, “St. James Infirmary” and “Big Rock Candy Mountain”?

Baby Gramps: As far as these two ditties, I’ve accumulated a hundred versions, everybody from Satchmo to Haywire Mac [aka "Big Rock Candy Mountain" composer Harry McClintock] respectively.

Crawdaddy!: Cartoon music: Was it a big inspiration? What about your favorite cartoons as a kid?

Baby Gramps: Krazy Kat, Bosko cartoons, Flip the Frog (produced and drawn by Ub Iwerks), Van Buren cartoons.
