Episode 137 – Alex Salem on The First Family


How has it taken this long to get to what might be the most famous comedy album of all time?  Simple: not one guest has requested it.  So this week, we start changing the format up.  Starting soon, we’re going to be giving guests who don’t have an album in mind, or who pick a CD or a cassette, another option – listen to something you haven’t heard.  This week, friend of the show Alex Salem stops by and we both discuss our first dedicated listening experience with the one-time vinyl record sales holder.  Not only that, but because of its ubiquity, it can easily be tossed aside as a bi-product of a political comedy trope it helped popularize – the presidential impression – when, in fact, it was ground-breaking.  Give it a listen, and go buy it, because I guarantee you can find yourself a cheap copy.
