Sara Pocock proposed the idea that someone should introduce her to something brand-new, at least to her. A classic she’d never heard of, or never new was important enough to listen to. She picked the authority – James Urbaniak. James picked one of the best – An Evening with Mike Nichols and Elaine May. Because I can’t think of a better title, I’m calling this subseries “DISCovery.” Submissions for better titles are welcome.
Also, coming back this week is bittersweet. A few weeks ago, my wife lost her father, Tom Smith, who you’ll see with Cheech and Chong above in a photo I finally got to see when I was putting together the photos for his memorial. Naturally, I was hoping I’d get to hear more of the story behind the photo from Tom himself, but I do know he got to interview two of my heroes. My picture with Philip Proctor, though, was of an experience Tom coveted, himself, so we got to share our love of comedy that way.
