So grateful to have discovered Tony Schwartz's immense catalogue of work; we often play his tracks on our weekly folk & roots radio show called Barking Dog. I just discovered this website and through it, WNYC's archive of his show—looking forward to having even more of his work to explore! Thanks for keeping his memory alive.

I grew up listening to "1-2-3 and a zing-zing-zing" because my father, Don Sibley, illustrated the record cover when he was a young man. I especially liked "who put the cookie in the cookie jar / not I put the cookie in the cookie jar..." (or at least that is how I remember it) because I loved to jump rope.
I have used this book with my graduate students for 10 years. The book is as relevant now as it was when it was written.
I learned of the wonderful work of Tony Schwartz via the wonderful work of Dr. Marshall McLuhan. Thank you for making so much of Tony's work available on the Internet. If I had ever met Tony, I would have asked him to offer opinion(s) on the work of Bob And Ray, the Braque & Picasso Of Radio Art Satire, a couple of wonderful guys. Best regards to all. Gary
Tony helped us with a project after the Crown Heights riots in New York. He was a fascinating man, and I truly was grateful for his wonderful ideas and kindness.
