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, Bob & Ray, Raymond Scott and more.
"Never underestimate the potency of cheap music."

July 15

“Meat Les Barker”

This week we are visited by poet and profit Les Barker who will declaim for us and play a whole mess of his favorite silly songs from the likes of the goons, The Bonzo Dog Band and George Formby Jr. 148

July 22

“TV Party Tonight!”

We’re a TV nation so this week Crazy College offers a silly salute in song to its formative years. The medium really gets massaged, as we relive such classic shows as The Beverley Hillbillies, Green Acres and even the god-awful My Mother the Car. We'll enter Bob & Ray’s No Talent Contest and join Stan Freberg in bemoaning Tv unrealized potential. So grab yourself a colortini, lie back in the Barcalounger, turn off the tube and turn ON the radio when Crazy College takes on TV. 168

July 29

“British Music Hall & American Vaudeville”

This week we salute the British Music Hall and American Vaudeville. We’ll hear from the likes of Webber & Fields, Stanley Holloway, Sir Harry Lauder and even more obscure names! Experts Bill Chamless and Mick Moloney will stop by to give us a bit of history, too. Plus we'll also hear the vocal stylings of the Philadelphia Nightingale, Murray Callahan. No 64

August 5

"Streaking a Blue Streak (It's cold outside)"

This week "Burt & I" had to take Jerry Lewis for a ride. Tom Lehrer and Clint Eastwood protected their right to bare arms, while Martin Mull and Ray Stevens bared everything else – when we revisit that Seventies fad of “Streaking.”

143

August 12

“Elvis at Woodstock”

This week we’re wallowing the mud back in Yeager's Farm with the likes of Benny Hill, Danny Kaye, and Cyril Smith. Then on the anniversary of the death of Elvis, we TCB with the king as he's saluted by his pawns, including Homer & Jethro, Stan Freberg and Daffy Duck. All that and then some next time, on a really waterlogged Woodstock edition of Crazy College.

August 19

“Hot as the Sun”

This week we get ready for the summer with Annette Funichello, Terry-Thomas

and Allan Sherman. Then we head for the beach with Angela Lansbury,Ray Stevens and George Formby Jr. 189

Coming Soon (enough)

”Mary Had a Little Lamb”

This week we wind up the old victorla and play some great comedy 78. We’ll go for a buggy ride with Billy Murray. Fanny Brice mulls over matrimony. And the Happiness Boys find a straight Banana. Plus, we hear from Ernie Maine, who comes on to remind us that you don’t get many pimples on a pound of pickled pork. Which is a good thing.

Frequent Crazy College guest Chris White's model of the Invisible Man
And 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 soap that Svenghouli highlighted on his June 23, 2018 show. Chris' soap was much better than the movie that week in so many ways...

Chris White heard me talk about my chemistry set on the air one day a while back and surprised me a few weeks later with an original copy of the Experiment Book that came with the set.
