Dedicated to all music odd, silly or forgotten, Crazy College has been hitting the airways since 1984. Hosted by Geo. Stewart, it's a fun way to look at the whole panoply of American social attitudes and what them change, sometime even evolving for the better. Spike Jones, Stan Freberg Allan Sherman, they all have a home here, as do Brother Theodore, Billy Murray, Raymond Scott and more.

NOT TO BE MISSED!
Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival
Right over the bridge near Cowtown in Woodstown, New Jersey is The Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival, help this year on September 4 through 6. It's always a great time, a great vib, a great setting, great food and, oh, yeah, REALLY great music. Impeccable sound and great sight lines make it fun for everyone. And be sure to order the ribs.
Hope to see you there!



Radio Dazed

Two new links in the top nav bar. One tells the history of the University of Delaware radio, The Rondo Center and The State Theater. The other reprints some of my articles from Delaware Underground Newspapers in the 1970s and 80s.

Turns out that our Atomic Bomb show DID run on time and it was just after that the station wnet off the air. Sorry for all the confusion.




August 23, 2015

Let’s get rowdy as Big Bird teaches us to dance; Spike Jones, Louis Nye, and The Kinks take us out for a drink; and Peter Sellers is joined by his old pal Blue Bottle for a disastrous duet.

“Dimension X”

Warm up the old tube radio. Two episodes from its golden age that will give you the chills.




Sept 6 Labor Day Weekend

“Working Stiff”

A special Labor Day edition of Crazy College. This week we salute all us working stiffs who keep the economic wheels of our great nation turning and grinding us into the dust that the rich have us wash off their Bentleys. We’ll here from the likes of Allan Sherman and Lonnie Donegan. David Seville and his Chipmunks do the old nine-to-five and Randy Newman partitions our government for some much need help. All that and then some during the Crazy College Labor Day Special.

• SEPT 12

Bored at the Beach

This week, we’re feeling rather bored and blasé as Homer & Jethro prove that Life really can be miserable. Mimi Van Doren fills out her Itsey Bitsy Teeny Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini and Sweeny Todd makes mince meat out of some day-trippers.

• SEPT 19

“Scotts & Sojourns”

Scots & Sojourns

This week we salute Kid Show hosts Soupy Sales, Buffalo Bob Smith, and Uncle Floyd. We head to Scotland with Bob Hope and Sir Harry Lauder, and climb the Stairway to Gilligan’s Island.

SEPT 26

“Play Ball”


This week we salute the great American pastime, Baseball. We hear from the likes of Sam & Dave, Danny Kaye and Gene Kelly. Nat King Cole will review the history of the game. And of course, But Abbott will be naming names to a confused Lou Costello the name of all the players on the team.

OCT 4

“The Funny Papers”

This week we read the Sunday Funnies with Ray Stevens and Spike Jones. Try and kick the nicotine habit with Phil Harris and Red Ingles. And enter Bob and Ray in Arthur Godfrey’s “No Talent Scouts.” We win.

OCT 11

“Columbus Discovers America and Vice Versa”

This week we salute our native American ancestors as they discover Columbus discovering our native American ancestors. Stan Freberg takes on a tour of the harbor, Lou Monte wants to go back home. And Fanny Brice is turning red when Annette Funecello goes native on us. All that and then some on the next time on The Crazy College Columbus Day Celebration.

OCT 18 “The Laffs are on Us”


This week Ron L Simon, author of The Goldmine Comedy Record Price Guide joins me for an affectionate look at some of the great stand up comedians of the 50s and 60. Guys like Godfrey Cambridge, Professor Irwin Corey and the Smothers Brothers

From the "Mr. Wizard's Worst Nightmare" Dept:


My best Christmas gift ever. There was a rivalry between those who had Gilbert Chemistry Sets and those of us that had Porter. What I wouldn't give to find a copy of the old lab manual of instructions....




To me a house without squeaky floors can never be a home.






Look what some listener sent us: a Steel needle case for 78s. If you loved your recorders, which cost close to a day's salary for the average working man at the time (It's why we needed strong unions – and still do).


Professor Emeritus Dr. Soupy Sales with eager student:




More News You Can Loose...Check out the interview section for insightful conversations with satirists Tom Lehrer and Stan Freberg, comedian Dayton Allen, Disney animator and founder of The Firehouse Five plus Two, Ward Kimball, and satanic madmad (he was really a nice guy) Brother Theodore and more!.
