In 1905, Bob Wills, the man who originated the style of music known as western swing, was born near Kosse, Texas. Wills and his “Texas Playboys,” a swing band with country overtones, were a fixture for nearly 25 years on station KVOO in Tulsa, Oklahoma, beginning in 1933. Willsʹs band played a mixture of country ballads, blues and jazz, with horns and fiddles figuring prominently in the arrangements. In April 1940, when Wills recorded his own composition, “San Antonio Rose,” featuring the vocal talents of Tommy Duncan, the disc sold a million copies. Another version by Bing Crosby was also a million-seller. More hits followed, but the Second World War caused the breakup of “The Texas Playboys.” When Wills re-formed the group after the war, it was a much smaller band in which fiddles predominated. Willsʹ health began to suffer in the 1960s, and he suffered two heart attacks and a stroke. In December 1973, he attended his last recording session. Many of the original “Texas Playboys” and Merle Haggard were there, but during the session, Wills suffered a second stroke. He never regained consciousness, and died in May 1975.

In 1906, Comedian Lou Costello (Louis Francis Cristillo) was born in Paterson, New Jersey.

Abbott and Costello was a top box-office attraction in films of the 1940s and early '50s, with such hits as “Buck Privates,” “Hold That Ghost,” “Keep 'em Flying,” “Rio Rita,” “Who Done It?”, “Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein,” “Africa Screams” and “Lost in Alaska.” Their most famous comedy routine, “Whoʹs on First?” (first performed in the 1945 film “The Naughty Nineties”), is enshrined on a plaque in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

In 1956, “The Phil Silvers Show”. You could usually find Sergeant Ernie Bilko making monkeys of the military brass, but not this time. A chimp literally skates through the induction process at Fort Baxter and is sworn in as private. While the episode takes wonderful satiric potshots at dim-bulb officers and efficiency experts, the real fun is watching star Phil Silvers ad-lib off the shenanigans of Zippo the chimp. When the simian soldier faces court-martial (for biting the mess-hall sergeant), Bilko is assigned to defend him. Silvers is a riot, “conferring” with his lip-smacking client, then spewing out a stream of legal-sounding gibberish. Meanwhile, Zippo is banging on the table, scribbling on a tablet and in general being a perfectly ill-behaved chimp. Finally, Zippo jumps into an adjoining chair and picks up a telephone. Lightning-witted Silvers glimpses this and ad-libs to the presiding officer, “Just a minute, sir, I think heʹs calling for another lawyer.” Amid the laughter, Silvers turns to Zippo and with insincere passion admonishes, “Now, youʹve got to let me handle this my way.” The stage is strewn with men in uniform struggling in vain to keep a straight face.
