Dear Daniel Pinkwater:

I always enjoy your segments on Weekend Edition and the other times i hear you on NPR. Frequently a song is played at the end ot the segment with words about ” The day I read a book.”

Can you please tell me where I might get a copy of the entire song. I would prefer a recording but would settle for finding the lyrics.

Daniel replies:

It's the great Jimmy Durante, and I believe the song is on a CD, because Weekend Edition Saturday had no trouble finding it. You can ask them: and you might mention that you like what I do as well as the song. If you do, of course. Like it. What I do. On the program. You could mention it.
