National Lampoon Radio Hour: Best Moments. Greatest Hits of the National Lampoon. National Lampoon's Lemmings (1973 Original Off-Broadway Cast). This CD is a reissue of an old album that featured bits from The National Lampoon Radio Hour.
During the 1970s and early 1980s, a few films were made as spin-offs from the original National Lampoon magazine, using some of the magazine's creative staff to put together the outline and script, and were cast using some of the same actors that performed in The National Lampoon Radio Hour and the stage show National Lampoon's Lemmings. The first of the "National Lampoon" movies was a (not very successful) made-for-TV movie called Disco Beaver from Outer Space, broadcast in 1978.
Before there was Saturday Night Live, young comedians including John Belushi, Chevy Chase and Gilda Radner dished up irreverent humor on The National Lampoon Radio Hour. NPR's Bob Edwards and cast member Richard Belzer discuss the influential show on the 30th anniversary of its debut affect the culture the way we did," says Belzer, a comedian and actor who also wrote for the radio show.
National Lampoon That's Not Funny, That's Sick (1977). Greatest Hits of the National Lampoon (1978). National Lampoon White Album (1979). The set includes many of the best sketches, and has extensive liner notes detailing the history of the show. National Lampoon also released 3 albums that predated the Radio Hour.
The radio show was recorded in a studio specially built at the National Lampoon's offices. The musical theme for the show was co-written and performed by Bob Hoban and Nate Herman. The show was broadcast nationally on 600 different radio stations, but the stations picking it up were free to air it at any time they chose. It proved difficult to get enough advertising to support the series: national sponsors seemed reluctant to take on the show, probably because of the controversial nature of much of its material.
