The Wisdom Channel links page
Most of these badly organized research links were collected and checked in 2007, long before a single "wisdom video" appeared on YouTube. Some of the links may not work. The channel publisher does not own any of the content on the linked pages and the links are kept online for continuing reserach purposes. It is important for people to understand that this channel does NOT represent Tom Lehrer in any way, and that messages or requests can not be forwarded.

Lehrer does not want to be bothered by fans or the press, but he is very polite and he appreciates people who enjoy his old comedy songs and buy his DVD's, albums or mp3's HERE..
