It was Automation

It’s a welcome if rare occurrence when a reporter has a chance to quote material from Allan Sherman’s classic comedy album “My Son the Nut” (Warner Bros. Records, 1963). I recently had the pleasure.

In spite of the season, I wasn’t quoting “Hello Mudduh, Hello Fadduh!” Assigned to write a story on industrial robotics, I kept hearing the lyrics from “Automation,” which Sherman matched with the tune from “Fascination.”

Not coincidentally, Sherman’s satirical song was released not too long after the first industrial robot went into use. Automation has come a very long way since then and continues to gain momentum, as I reported in MHI Solutions magazine.
