For all interested in 1950s-1960s comedy - there is a great podcast  
and related blog available free from CiTR FM (Vancouver, Canada)

The blog is http://www.generationexploitation.blogspot.com/ and the  
podcasts are here:

as described: LaughTracks is a show about comedy. LaughTracks delivers  
vinyl comedy records (1950s, 60s, and 70s), contemporary hipster  
comics, LPs not meant to be funny (but are), and novelty songs  
performed by bygone character actors. Kliph Nesteroff from the zine  
Generation Exploitation, hosts.

there are many episodes available but searching for a particular  
performer is not too easy...
