Nice use of the word 'Catholic'Posted on 2013.07.06 at 22:28
From The blog of Katherine Phelps:
No radio shows at the time would touch his [Tom Lehrer's] music. It was too controversial, covering subjects such as venereal disease. Nevertheless, he sold his records to other students on campus at cost and through Boston newsstands and record stores. Their popularity spread swiftly across the US and abroad through word of mouth. His big break came in the UK when Princess Margaret described her musical tastes as "catholic, ranging from Mozart to Tom Lehrer". At which time he started being played by BBC radio. Recently, his song "The Elements" was performed by Daniel Radcliffe on the Graham Northon Show.
