“Hello Mother, Hello Father, here I am at Camp Granada” will always live on in my head as that one time the Simpsons did it. Its where Homer mistakes the heavy Chicago accent of comedy writer and novelty song man Allan Sherman for eight-year-old Lisa on the family’s voicemail machine. I never really got that reference, but Sherman’s funny bit still gets a giggle every time. Nevertheless, now may be the best time to learn all about the man and his legacy when author and Sherman biographer Mark Cohen shares stories and lost recordings on Sunday, Feb. 9, at the Osher Marin JCC. 200 N. San Pedro Road, San Rafael. 4pm. Free. 415.444.8000
