This is a rare treat. It's a video of the wonderful and somewhat reclusive Tom Lehrer performing in a live concert on TV. Oddly enough, the TV show is in a Scandinavian country -- I think Sweden or Norway. They don't get all of his references, but that they get any of them is impressive. What's also impressive is that this song, “Pollution,” is pretty much as current as it was when it was written over 40 years ago.
