I can hear it and I'm in the US - the BBC doesn't always make these available for international listeners.

To the master of internal rhymes, and the man who wrote The Elements.
I wish you a very happy 85th birthday, and may you have many more, birthdays.
I still have the original 12" LP, alas, badly scratched, but it's a treasured possession, nonetheless

And not just internal rhymes.I don't believe anyone will match him for rhyming the most proper names in a single song:
Alma, Vienna, Gustav, Mahler,Das Lied von der Erde, Walter, Gropius, Bauhaus, Franz, Werfel,Bernadette.

All the original recordings, re-recordings, and a DVD of a
concert in Oslo are available.
There are even some cheap (and badly transferred) "public domain"
reissues from the UK.
Below are links to items available at Amazon, but shop around
for better prices.

Best wishes, Thomas.

"I still have the original 12" LP, alas, badly scratched, but it's a treasured possession, nonetheless"

The *original* LPs (the first two, anyway) were 10".

Great clips with him on this show.   Really liked the stories about Queensland--and his observation that while satire is still around, deft satire is less easy to find.

Also interesting how his own background informed some of the songs--"Wild West", for instance.   

And his homage to Graham Norton for live "Elements".

Ron Davies, Graham Norton? It was Daniel Radcliffe who sang The Elements, live --- on Graham Norton's show. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rSAaiYKF0cs

Re:   Graham Norton:    I could have sworn this is what Tom himself said.    I'll have to say I was surprised to hear it--and I may have misheard it.

Maybe I'll check it at some point, in my copious spare time (which never seems to exist, regardless of what else happens.)

Lehrer certainly has been an inspiration. Do you suppose he was a time-traveler as well?
