Live in the studio and never before released. "NOTICE: Contains some adult and Non-P/C Content". Back in the early 1960's when Jonathan Winters was a household name and the funniest guy in America, he went to Bell Sound Studio in New York City to record a few radio commercials. Well, someone left the tape machine running and captured Winters (and his co-announcers) just being themselves. For many years these wildly funny, slightly off-color and definitely politically incorrect recordings were an underground sensation--passed from friend to friend. Now, you can hear Jonathan Winters at his best, as he riffs, ad-libs on scripts, makes up characters on the spot and leaves the people in the studio unable to control themselves. Did the radio spots ever run? Who knows, but they are available now in this limited time offering.
