A radio and TV star who made "manic, satiric versions" of hit songs, Spike Jones' "anything goes brand of organized mayhem" inspired other entertainers, including Frank Zappa, says host Bill Newcott.
A new DVD featuring him called "The Best of Spike Jones" has just been released.
Press play on the audio player to hear a few examples of Jones' work, including "Cocktails for Two."
Bill also talks to Spike Jones Jr. about what life was like with his dad behind-the-scenes.
