Star Time #62: Real Humdinger

Don't ask me about the mixtape cover. I image-searched for the phrase "humdinger" and I got a Dutch Boy Paint ad from the '60s featuring somebody called "The Lead Family." If I make too much of a stink about them I'm afraid they'll do something to our water supply. Today's episode meets all the standards for an exemplary Star Time show, notably featuring a recipe for fried marbles if you've been looking for one. Just don't blow up the house. And don't tell The Lead Family.
