What was the last thing you purchased?
If that's the Abbott & Costello show where Lou gives Bud a scalp treatment following directions given on the radio ... you're going to love it. A VERY funny bit. (I won't tell you what's "Christmas" about it, because it would be a spoiler.) That's available in a colorized version. It's from one of their Colgate Comedy Hour live broadcasts in the 1950s and is a favorite in our house.

The most recent DVD I got was a couple of kinescopes of holiday broadcasts of "Your Hit Parade" from the 1950s. They perform the top songs of the week, as usual, but stage them with a Christmas twist. I nearly fell off the sofa when I saw them do "Papa Loves Mambo" as Santa and his missus doing the mambo!
