A Smothers Brother

Dick Smothers is half of the legendary 1960s comedy duo Smothers Brothers.  In recent years, he and his brother have gone into retirement. Dick talks with host Dick Gordon about how he and Tom developed their jokes and timing, what material worked for them, and what brought things to an end.
