Laughter is the best medicine

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.
