You're correct, and not only one, but apparently two. Here's one (The Bobby Roberts Trio) that has a completely different monologue:

And there are two Spencer & Spencer versions, one with a Russian folk sounding group playing the "hit", the other with 'backwards Chuck Berry'.

Getting really technical, Spencer and Spencer is band stand (2 words) Bobby Roberts is bandstand (1 word).

Also, has anyone ever had or seen a 45 of the other Spencer and Spencer version-the one without the backwards Chuck Berry??

No need to check. There is no legitimate "alternate" Spencer and Spencer version. The other version was done by Dr. Demento for his show.

Anybody have the "other" Spencer & Spencer record, "Stagger Lawrence", on Gone? Lawrence Welk "meets" Lloyd Price...fun stuff.
