Original Man on the Street: Mal Sharpe {format} 6:30 Jesse Boggs

In the 1960s, Jim Coyle and Mal Sharpe took to the streets of San Francisco in the name of radio comedy. They asked strangers random questions and give them wild scenarios. Along the way, they captured the San Francisco culture and attitude of the time. Their work has been compiled on a four-disc set called "Coyle and Sharpe: These Two Men Are Imposters."
