Sunrise Serenade: Kickin' The Gong Around

This morning's Sunrise Serenade was inspired by the pair of feral cats we feed.  They are a male and female that are very loyal to each other, so I named them Minnie the Moocher and Smokey Joe.  Here is another episode in the continuing saga of Minnie and Joe by Cab Calloway and His Orchestra:   "Kickin' The Gong Around."  Click on the song title to listen courtesy of Jazz On Line.
