 flying saucer 1

"The Flying Saucer", or "The Flying Saucer Parts 1 & 2", is a novelty record 
which hit #3 in 1956. It is considered to be one of the earliest examples of a 
mashup, using clips from 18 different songs, each of which was a top 20 hit 
1955 or 1956. Bill Buchanan plays the radio announcer, stating that the
Martians are attacking Earth. Dickie Goodman plays reporter John
Cameron-Cameron.
