CCP #7 - Whyaduck.com for sale; Topper remake; Amos n Andy; Little Rascals/Our Gang; England; adding sound clips; NPR article on restoring film sound

(I finally finished edited and uploading this episode. Sorry for the wait!)

I talk about the selling of Whyaduck.com and more information on Topper. Angie joins us again! I talk about Classic Comedy Teams documentary hosted by Steve Allen and go into a little of the teams listed there. I talk about my visit to Ulverston England (Stan Laurel's birthplace) and the part of London that Chaplin is from. Judd joins us again, and we talk about adding sound clips to the show, an NPR article (spending some time trying to find it), and a little more off-topic about Judd's Toastmaster podcast. To listen this and future edited versions only, please subscribe to feeds.feedburner.com/ComedyClassicsPodcast

CCP #6 - (uncut) Buster Keaton's death; Chaplin's Modern Times & his studio; Topper

This is the uncut version of #6.. I plan to edit it soon. I talk about the belated anniversary of Buster Keaton's passing (Feb 1), Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times and his studio; Topper (a hauntingly funny series from radio and movies); upcoming birthdays of Jerry Lewis and Lou Costello; and a off topic discussion about Toastmasters. Edited version will be released later with better shownotes including links, and I'll make the Toastmaster discussion a separate episode since it's off topic but can be very useful to people.

#4 - Buster Keaton and Groucho Marx books; some more OTR, a Chaplin reading

Finally got #4 done!

I talk about Buster Keaton: Tempest in a Flat by Edward M. Pherson and Groucho: a Photographic Journey by Arthur Marx. I mention the upcoming book by Harpo Marx's son Bill named Son of Harpo Marx Speaks. Angie talks a little more about her Modern Times DVD, I talk about Abbott & Costello, particularly the Chaplin/Costello connection. From #2, we continue to talk about old time radio a little more. After Angie loses her phone connection I talk about Victor Borge and read a little from Chaplin's autobiography, My Autobiography. Remember to vote for us on Digg.com!
