I have yet to find a website about Russ Abbot on the Internet (DW)

Russ Abbot Show Vol. 1 CD and cassette


The Russ Abbot tape/CD is still the world's best kept secret. The BBC shop doesn't appear to sell it, but the tape appears to be on the Amazon site

(mysteriously dated 1998, unless this is something different).

Aha! Both the tape and CD ARE on Amazon - but only if you type in Russ Abbott (wrongly spelt with two 'T's!)

The CD is TLCD 06 on The Laughter Label and quotes the contact
