We absolutely heart Scharpling & Wurster, the comedy duo you’ve been hearing since forever on WFMU, quite possibly the only radio station of its kind in the known world. So we got psyched when we got a promo of The Art Of The Slap, their new triple-disc of radio shenanigans. The Scharpling & Wurster style is of a fine vintage, subtle like a nice Bob Newhart but also as pungent as a Spinal Tap, and nowhere is this more evident than on what was for us the discovery of the whole set: A bit called “Philly Boy Roy.” Here, Roy ‚Äî from Rocksbarah, yewe knowe ‚Äî calls in and tells the hosts a tall tale of psychic mind-melding, lazer GG Allin shows, and lots of howegeez. Submitted for your enjoyment, an accent so Philly it’s almost cockney.
