REally LTS on the sofa can't be bothered to log out....
Like many others, I came to Tom Lehrer, via 'The Irish Ballad' and possibly hearing the odd song on the Ed 'Stewpot' Stewart programme on the radio every weekend as I was growing up (which is how I discovered Flanders and Swann but that's another story).
The songbook I have is 'Too many songs and not enough pictures' by Tom Lehrer and Gerald Scarfe - recommeded for any Lehrer fan.
I've been looking out for a difinitive collection of his songs (I'm missing my favourites 'Vatican Rag' and 'I gave it to Agnes') so I'll check out the link, thanks Leadfingers!
I've corrupted Limpit with his works too... but does anyone else remember hearing Bill Oddie (the hairy one from the Goodies) on 'I'm sorry I'll read that again' singing his own version of 'Poisoning pigeons', called 'Persecuting Pigeons in Trafalgar Square' or is it just me?
