M.A. Bogue Trivia:
Noted for: Hair cut in bangs and combed straight down toward his eyebrows.
Merwyn Bogue (Ish Kabibble) turned from music to selling real estate when big bands declined in popularity.
His 1989 autobiography explained the meaning behind his stage name. "Ish Kabibble" derives from the Yiddish expression "Ische ga bibble?", meaning, essentially, "What, me worry?", the expression later appropriated by MAD Magazine as a motto for its Ish Kabibble-like fictitious mascot Alfred E. Neuman.
His wife, Janet (Meade) Bogue was born in Ohio on May 21, 1912. She passed away on June 13, 1994 at the age of 82, eight days after her husband.
He was survived by his wife, Janet; three children, and eight grandchildren.
