Who names their kid WOODY when their last name is WOODBURY?  This comedien comes by humour honestly. It’s dirty sex and life humour befitting the nightlife scene in 1961. Because it’s that vintage and a comedy on record, we are going to keep it and give it a second chance.

Robert “Woody” Woodbury (born February 9, 1924) is an American comedian, actor, television personality and talk show host. He is perhaps best known for his best-selling comedy albums of “risqué” stories, most of which were released in the early 1960s. Woodbury was among the first standup comedians to receive a gold record.   In 1962, Woodbury replaced Johnny Carson as host of the game show Who Do You Trust? when Carson left.   The recording was a bit muffled which leads me to my next piece of record research..

Can anyone tell me what the difference between a 33 and a 33 1/3 record is? No really, what is it?

wiki: A gramophone record, commonly known as a phonograph record (in American English), vinyl record (in reference to vinyl, the material most commonly used after about 1950), or colloquially, record, is an analog sound storage medium consisting of a flat disc with an inscribed, modulated spiral groove. The groove usually starts near the periphery and ends near the center of the disc. Phonograph records are generally described by their diameter in inches (12-inch, 10-inch, 7-inch, etc.), the rotational speed at which they are played (“33⅓ r.p.m.“, “78”, “45”, etc.), their time capacity (“Long Playing”), their reproductive accuracy, or “fidelity“, or the number of channels of audio provided (“Mono“, “Stereo“, “Quadraphonic“, etc.).

(so this is interesting but doesn’t answer my question. I have several older records that are 33 1/3 heavy and the “newer” post 70s are all 33’s. Are the heavier ones gramophone friendly?)

wow, I found this serious gem while looking for vintage comedy records ~Eileen Barton: 

cool- so in finding the above Eileen Barton.. I came to find dozens of videos of youtube because Woody went on to have his own talk show! here’s a clip also featuring Eileen in a kick ass dress!:
