Every type of music Professionally executed in a way that when I was3 years old I still remember every word. Like. Mary. Poppin's. That is how I learned to play the Piano. my grandfather was one of the Conductors for The New York Philharmonic .
True Classic audio comedy with Bonus tracks!
I've loved Tom Lehrer since I was a teenager and thought his comedy was far beyond that of mortal men.
He was the best comedic commentator of his day and what separated Mr. Lehrer from all others (except maybe Lenny Bruce) was his dark side that all his. What I admired the most about Mr. Lehrer was that he was/is an unabashed Atheist.
This particular collection has three of the greatest voice talents of radio and cartoons whom you can hear in three classic skits: June Foray, Stan Freberg (another satirist) and Daws Butler. You would know Foray and Butler from shows such as George of the Jungle, Woody Woodpecker (Foray), Rocky and Bullwinkle and hundreds of other programs to whom they leant their talents.
Lehrer was interviewed in 2003 and about his political satire, he famously stated: I'm not tempted to write songs about George W. Bush. I couldn't figure out what sort of song I would write. That's the problem: I don't want to satirize George Bush and his puppeteers, I want to vaporize them."*
