All I can do for you my faithful readers is give you some consolation with humor. This site is a collection of radio broadcasts, Bob Claster's Funny Stuff. You will find a host of your favorite or not so favorite entertainers. For example, the couple who did the voices for Rocky and Bullwinkle. A shockingly sad interview with Quentin Crisp who spoke like a man in purgatory. God rest his soul. An introduction to "Brother Theodore" Theodore Gottlieb who did the voice of Golem in The Hobbit cartoon and played a cameo role (the photographer) in The Stranger with Orson Welles. He created "Stand Up Tragedy" and his rare scary recording of Quadrupedism is played. Mr. Gottlieb bribed his way out of Dachau. Lord love him.
If you only can listen to one of the shows please listen to my favorite The Wibberly Stories read by Leonard Wibberly himself shortly before his death. A kind Catholic man, humble, most of his works were published in paperbacks and are now gone. Just try finding some. Best known for The Mouse That Roared. What a talent. You will laugh and cry. He is charming and his stories will give you consolation and warmth. He tells the story of the German motor mechanic, "we will never be forgiven for the war,...". If you are an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion or if you minister to the elderly you will be touched by the story about Mr. Wibberly's mother in the nursing home. He reads for an hour and the bits about the fiddle and the champagne filled loving cup at the horse race is a hoot. To know him is to love him. Enjoy the recordings.
