Duck’s Breath Mystery Theatre - “Naked People’s Court”

I grew up listening to tapes of Duck’s Breath Mystery Theatre and Dr. Science. I wasn’t surprised to recently learn that they came to prominence via All Things Considered, which was (along with most of the other prominent NPR programs) a staple around my home when I was little.

Anyway, I recently got CDs of both and it’s been great to listen to some of this stuff again. It’s from my past but it’s also showing me why I’m so fond of when shows like The Sound of Young America incorporate comedy sketches into their episodes.
