Anna Russell's recordings are being re-released on CD (Columbia, I think). Besides her masterwork of reducing Wagner's entire Ring Cycle down to twenty minutes (accurate in every detail, and hilarious, of course), she also did a piece on how to play the bagpipes. She did, in fact learn to do so for her performances, with the help of the encyclopedia Brittanica and a very suspicious teacher.
