Steve's Comedy and Dementia Collection*

*Special thanks to Father Bob Giuntini who sold me his lovingly assembled collection of three decades and whose records will start appearing on this page as soon as they are duly sorted and cataloged.  He and I shared a great chat about recorded comedy and I'm privileged to have met such a fan of laughter and lightheartedness.

Including Records, Tapes, CD's with demented music
