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.

From the "Reach for a Puppy instead of a Smoke" Dept:

Where are the great toys of yesteryear? On eBay at unimaginable prices. I use to buy these in the late 50s at truck stops everywhere for 15 cents and I'd give your right arm to get one now (but not money). I wonder what made the cigarettes puff those perfect smoke rings.



Another great Christmas gift, again from mom, back in the early 1970s. The copyright reads "1922-1924 Kink Features"


Frequent Crazy College guest Chris White's model of the Invisible Man

Below is a curio that Chris White made for the annual Blobfest held in Phoenixville, PA. It's really a bar of soap, which is what you would be if the Blob got ya.


This is the limited edition Crazy College T Shirt from 1989.






The people who put together My Book House did a multi-volume set on the history of the world – just like Will and Ariel Durant, but for kids and with better illustrations. This is the cover of Volume One


NEWS FLASHS!.. .

From the "Have you ever been or are you now..."Dept:

Chris White liked the Aliens Show and signed me up!



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....

Brain Drool

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).
