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 (big special December 4!), Raymond Scott and more.
"Never underestimate the potency of cheap music."

Highlights

Dec 4

Bob & Ray Vol. 2

A special edition of Crazy College this week saluting radio’s Bob & Ray. With their dry, deadpan humor, Bob & Ray were one of the earliest proponents of a new absurdist-style of comedy that developed after World War II. For much of the 50s they were heard all over the radio dial. This week we’ll be visited with Wally Ballou, Mary Magoon and the Piels Brothers as Crazy College salutes Bob and Ray.

Dec 11

“Phood & Fones”

This week we celebrate fine dining with gourmets – well, gourmands – John Cleese, Bob Rivers and Tom Lehrer. Julie Andrews and Beatrice Kaye sing some classic tunes from the British Music Hall. Then Allan Sherman and Mae West will be on hand to take your calls.

Dec 18

The Night Bears Before Christmas

The week before Christmas we bring out some of the great novelty songs the season seems to generate. We’ll get decorating tips from the Three Stooges. Tiny Tim will reveal the secret of Santa’s new rocket sled. Stan Freberg, Eartha Kitt and Mae West sing their gimme lists. And a sour Tom Lehrer will tell us it’s, well, humbug. All that and then some on the Crazy College Christmas Special.

Dec 25

“Amal and the Night Visitors”

Jan 1, 2017

“Fear of the New Year“

Bah, Humbug. One more hour seasonal favorites plus a look at the new year ahead. It isn’t pretty.

Jan 8

“Boogie Knights”

This week we go midi-evil on your funny bone with Monty Python and Peter and Gordon, or is it Chad and Jeremy?, I can never keep them straight. We go for a ride with Spike Jones and Mr. Magoo, then visit Jurassic Park with Weird Al Yankovick and Gomer Pyle.





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