Friday morning at 7:30 KHUM presents Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks' Grammy Winning comedy album, "The 2000 Year Old Man In The Year 2000." Legend has it that the original 2000 Year Old Man recording from 1960 came about when Carl Reiner went up to Mel Brooks at a party with his tape recorder and said "I undertand that you are 2000 years old," an amazing improv session ensued and the rest is history. In 1998 Reiner and Brooks reprised the routine with this album which won the Grammy for Spoken Word Performance that year.
