Today’s programme features some of the comedy music from Edward Pearse’s collection. Known for his deep appreciation of Weird Al Yankovic (some would say obsession) through to comedy classics of artists like Danny Kaye and Tom Lehrer. Often spending time tracking down the correct artists for assorted comedy songs that people have attributed to Yankovic or Bob Rivers. 

Today’s broadcast includes music by Ogden Edsl, Stan Freeburg, Billy Connolly, Julie Brown, Kip Adotta, The Firm, Allan Sherman, George Carlin, Eric Idle, Palast Orchester, Jonathan Coulton and the ever popular “And Many More”.

There is some strong language, but it’s good for you. Hold your nose and swallow.
