Abraham Levitan at Funny Ha-Ha: Talkin' about a good wet dumpling

My lovely colleagues at WBEZ were kind enough to tape last week’s Funny Ha-Ha for me, and so today I present to you one of the highlights from the show. Shame That Tune‘s Abraham Levitan closed the show by taking an audience suggestion for a historical operetta, so he ended up writing a three-part musical about a frisky grandma active in the labor movement sometime in the 1920’s. It was very educational. Enjoy.
