Thalia's Retreat: Timeless Comedy for Whippersnappers

During training to be a Census Enumerator, it came up that few people had heard of, much less were familiar with, The Firesign Theatre. Unacceptable.

I put together a sampler of comedy. My initial goal was to use only pre-1970 spoken comedy (roughly FT era) but bent the rules for Shockwave Radio Theater, Steven Wright, and a few new recordings of old comics. Mostly, these are classic routines and songs. I could, of course, only use stuff from my own collection. I don't have a lot of Bill Cosby or George Carlin on CD. Heck, I don't have a lot of older FT; the cuts are from their Best Of Compilation, and I have their most recent CDs.

Behind the cut are 84 mp3s. What comedy would you want today's Young Whippersnappers to know of?
