"When did Wild Bill Hickok die? What was Liberace's favourite pie?" — "What's this grey stuff in the sink? When will clams become extinct?"
If these are things you need to know—and, believe me, they are—then do take a while to listen to TMR's latest chat with the talented singer-songwriter Bob Purse, composer of many collections of brilliant comic songs and musical recording collector extraordinaire.
Join us for just over 70 minutes of entertaining conversation—punctuated by many a musical track—as we explore a life of fascination with old and rare recordings and dip into the surreal world of a musically comedic mind.
(Bob's latest song collections (albums) "A Few More Plans" and "The Many Moods of Bob" can be found online at Bandcamp.com and Archive.org.)
