Magic Whistle Radio Hour 103

Things I've collected over the years or acquired on mixtapes and comps or gathered from the internet or the library or my parents' attic. The different sources are the reason for the volume disparity. I make no claims to "discovering" or "owning" anything. Probably neither do you. It's whatever I feel like playing that week. Every Saturday. No repeats. Things that may or may not be familiar. Who knows? Past weeks here too. Just type "Audio" in the search engine. Or if you're too lazy to press a button more than once, here's everything from 2015 and up to July 2016. You don't get the all playlists, though. You can right-click this if you want to save a zip file of this one (containing an mp3 of the file) for later. Here what information I was able to find:

Playboy originals, part 1

Playboy has been known for years as the king of nudie mags but actually had the tamest cartoons (relatively) and the least sexist. It might have something to do with them having being able to get better cartoonists the highest budget and production values and paying more. Recently while browsing the Heritage Auctions site, I ended up climbing down the rabbit hole (Playboy bunny, rabbit hole-- I just made a funny!) and this is what I found.

Erich Sokol, from the March 1965 issue.
J. B. Handelsman, March 1968
Paul Coker, Jr.. March 1965
Also J. B. Handelsman, March 1969
Arv Miller, May 1957
Edmond Kiraz, March 1977
E. Simms Campbell, May 1962
Phil Interlandi, November 1966
Erich Sokol, November 1969
E. Simms Campbell, November 1971

Interesting that he used a ruler for the caption ever though he knew it would be replaced with a typeset one.
Shel Silverstein, October 1956
Arv Miller, also October 1956
Jack Cole, October 1957

Sick #127, 2 of 4

Here's more of this issue of Sick from June 1979. The previous few pages were posted here last week, as was some of the story behind this magazine and its publisher.

They couldn't afford typesetting at this point, so the material was either hand-lettered or typewritten. Here's their parody of Lord of the Rings, the original animated feature. It was written and drawn by Dave Manak, who contributed to other humor magazines, eventually becoming a regular at Mad, doing Spy vs. Spy for several years.
Most of the work in the magazine is by Jack Sparling, their final editor.
