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.

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.

"Plane Crazy"
This week comedy takes flight as we salute the Wright Brothers righteous invention, the airoplane. We’ll hear about Snoopy’s adventures during the Great War, then drop in for something to eat at Rosemary Clooney’s house: mostly chicken lips and lizard hips, Ugh! Maybe that’s why we end up getting some medical attention from Dr Grouch Marx. All that and then some, next time on Crazy College.



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

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 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!.. SEE EXCERPTS FROM THE CRAZY COLLEGE TV SHOW, BAKED POTATO, now on YOUTUBE!! But don't tell mom...




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!.
