Who’s on First: Collection Routines from 1940’s by Abbott & Costello is actually a recording of the Abbott and Costello radio show. Which, for the record, I’m a large fan of. It’s at least as funny as their famous television series.
Now, technically, this is available on CD. But right now on Amazon, that costs over $900 dollars! Thankfully, it’s also available in MP3 format, for less than $5.00. Translation for people like my Mom: digital files that play directly on the computer.
And, if you have Amazon Prime, you can simply play it live at Amazon’s site for free. I personally use Prime, and recommend it.
And … it’s also available for free from the Old Time Radio archive, which is where I first heard it. With dozens of their old radio programs, all for free.
Anyway: this particular episode (November 9, 1944) contains:
- Who’s On First
- Bugs Bunny (seriously: Bugs Bunny, voiced by Mel Blanc, makes a guest appearance)
- Nylon Stockings
- Nylon Stockings part 2
- Final Words
