Spike Jones
Will Feature
Amateur Hour
Musical mayhem will resound in
Hill Auditorium at 8 p.m. Mon-
day when Spike Jones and his new
Musical Depreciation Revue ar-
rive on the stage.
New lighting effects, floral dis-
plays, specialty numbers and a
surprise finale are a few of the
new features of Spike's show.
The Amateur Hour to end all
amateur hours will also be in-
cluded in the revue. Spike calls his
version "The Unoriginal Amateur
Hour" and claims that the con-
testants are like none audiences
have ever seen before.
As proof of the maddening at-
mosphere that surrounds Spike's
music, he likes to cite examples of
guest stars that have risked their
sanity by performing with him.
Spike claims that stars such as
Gene Kelly, Dorothy Lamour,
Tony Martin, Richard Widmark
and Kirk Douglas are still paying
bills to their psychiatrists after
appearing with the City Slickers.
Dorothy Lamour, making a
guest appearance with Jones was
so convulsed with laughter that
she could scarcely sing her num-
It seems that Spike had prom-
ised her "Tales of the South Paci-
fic," but produced "Takes of South
Pasadena" instead. The City
Slickers tried to produce the right
atmosphere by decking themselves
out in sarongs with belts tied on
in back.
Tickets for the Musical Depre-
ciation Revue are on sale now at
the Hill Auditorium Box Office.
Prices are $1.80, $1.50 and $1.20.
Assembly Line

the Assembly newspaper staff
