Real Records You May Have Missed #6

Yet another ventriloquist/dummy act. There were thousands of these acts performing daily all over the globe years ago. Most were not good at ventriloquism at all. Some made albums, some had their own TV shows, one even wrote "Ventriloquism for Dummies". Imagine seeing this (photo above) as you strolled through a garden somewhere...or conversing with Geraldine at a ventriloquist convention and she says to you, "Trees talk too, y'know". I realize that a tree's bark is worse than it's bite but, it is a little unnerving.


  1. How long did it take for you to come up with that one brother? A tree's bark is worse than its bite!

    Yikes! I do remember this act though, I am not sure if I saw it or was just aware of it. Takes me back, the 60 and 70's were a long time ago you know!

  2. Eddie, I remember those days. You couldn't go anywhere without running into yet another ventriloquist with his or her dummy. You would see them on buses, dentists' chairs, even at tables in restaurants. (The dummy usually talking while eating ham, as the ventriloquist drank a glass of water.)

    Fortunately, after many years of therapy, those mental images were erased from my memory_______until you brought them all back. Thanks, EDWARD.


    p.s.(Back to the psychiatrist's couch.)

  3. Actually, Geraldine and Ricky were still on the go as of 3 or 4 years ago. Geraldine has (ahem) matured (ahem) while Ricky … seems to be related to Richard Alpert.

  4. Love your site but must say, Geraldine is a wonderful Christian lady and know
