When he started as a comedy writer,, Steve Young had few interests outside of his day job. But while gathering material for a comedy bit, Steve stumbled onto a few vintage record albums that would change his life forever.

Steve didn’t know much about musical theater, but these recordings delighted him in a way that nothing ever had.
