Podcast: The College Years: Guys in Their Underwear

| 0 comments

The College Years is a look deep into the vaults of The Sound of Young America. Take a journey with us every week as we post a new program or two from our salad days.

This week's dip in the archival river of The Sound of Young America makes you come up with leeches in the form of guys in their underwear. First, the guys talk to the mysterious Inspector #14 of underwear-inspecting fame. After, legendary soul singer Swamp Dogg talks about being a cult artist, his transformation into Swamp Dogg and why his liner notes were so great. Also, some of his hard-to-find, great music is played and discussed.

| 1 comment


In the early 1960s, James P. Coyle and Mal Sharpe roamed the streets of San Francisco, microphone in hand, roping strangers into bizarre schemes and surreal stunts. Today, their humor is a cultural touchstone for artists as varied as Henry Rollins and The Upright Citizens Brigade.

These recordings are from the Sharpe family archive, which is tended by Mal's daughter, Jennifer Sharpe. You can learn more about Coyle & Sharpe on their website or on MySpace. Their recent box set is These 2 Men Are Imposters.

This week, Coyle & Sharpe invade a football practice field, where the ask a coach for his help training their wolverines in sport.
