NEW YORK TIMES "Tony Waag, epitomized the homeyness of a cozy family living room ....with a demanding solo, he captured the boyish charm of a performer who looks like an easy, insouciant Len Cariou"
VARIETY "The genial and agreeable host, Tony Waag, wearing the tilted fedora - a familiar Carmichael trademark - offered a brief and informative narrative along the way and even injected some fanciful footwork. His amusing Ray Bolger flavored loose tap complimented "Small Fry", a tune introduced by Bing Crosby and a youthful Donald O'Connor in the 1938 film "Sing You Sinners. Waag also revived a long-lost vaudeville tradition by spreading salt on the floor for a scuffling soft shoe."
