Here are the first 3 episodes of a series of podcasts of historic Coyle & Sharpe satire presented by Jesse Thorn of The Sound of Young America.

Each podcast is 5 to 7 minutes long. We’ll put up new episodes every Wednesday as they are released.

Here’s a little history from Jesse’s blog at maximumfun.org:

Coyle & Sharpe, The ImpostersIn the early 1960s, James P. Coyle and Mal Sharpe roamed the streets of San Francisco, microphone in hand, roping strangers into bizarre schemes and surreal stunts. Today, their humor is a cultural touchstone for artists as varied as Henry Rollins and The Upright Citizens Brigade.

These recordings are from the Sharpe family archive, which is tended by Mal’s daughter, Jennifer Sharpe. You can learn more about Coyle & Sharpe on their Website or on MySpace.
