It’s not just Jack Benny and the WB cartoons that are referenced in this “Anaheim, Azusa” comment. In 1964, Jan and Dean recorded a song called The Anaheim, Azusa And Cucamonga Sewing Circle, Book Review And Timing Association, which probably ties with Nino Tempo and April Stevens’ I’ve Been Carrying A Torch For You For So Long That I Burned A Great Big Hole In My Heart as one of the longest titles to be squeezed onto the label of a 45 RPM record!
