Basil Wolverton on the Ukelele

One of "Basil's Beauties", the infamous Lena Hyena*

Longtime Automatic Daddy foot soldier Chris Engel sent me this link to an MP3 of Mad Magazine icon Basil Wolverton crooning and playing the ukelele! His song of choice is "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows", a personal favorite of mine, so I'm double happy to post this. Quite a find, Engelshin!
Basil himself.
Who is this man with the spicy name? Here is a link to his wikipedia page, and here is a link to what is purportedly the "official" Basil Wolverton webpage.

*read about Lena's fascinating origins in the Lil' Abner comic strip on the Wikipedia page.
