Podcast: TSOYA Classic: High and Low.


We continue our journey into The Sound of Young America's vast audio archive with this program from The Sound of Young America Clasics.

On this week’s show High and Low, there's an exploration of the differences in high and low art. Louis CK and Chip Lord are guests plus there’s music from Elephant Larry.

Louis CK has performed his stand-up comedy on shows like Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel Live. His writing credits include Late Show with David Letterman, The Dana Carvey show and the Chris Rock Show. He has also written several short films and feature-lengths – most notably “Pootie Tang”. When he spoke to TSOYA in this Classic episode from 2005, Louis spoke about his upcoming HBO series “Lucky Louie”.

The Ant Farm was a group radical architects who were also video, performance and installation artists. They were founded in 1968 by Chip Lord and Doug Michels. Along with their early inflatable structures, the group was also known for spectacular performance events like "Media Burn" (1975), for which Ant Farm members dressed up like astronauts and sped a customized Cadillac El Dorado through a pyramid of burning televisions. Chip Lord talks about their history.

There’s also a musical treat from the New York sketch comedy group Elephant Larry.
