Magic Whistle Radio Hour 18

Things I've collected over the years or acquired on mixtapes and comps or gathered from the internet, the library, my parents' house, let's say all over the place. I make no claims to "discovering" or "owning" anything and neither do you. It's whatever I feel like playing that week. Things that may or may not be familiar. Who knows. Past weeks here too. Just click on this for the previous 18.

You can also download a zip- file of the show by right-clicking this.

Broadway Laughs, part 2

More gag cartoons from the August 1974 issue of Broadway Laughs

Believe it or not, sometimes I feel guilty about posting as many T&A cartoons as I do.

With this batch, though, most of the the women in them seem to be enjoying sex and having control of their bodies, which most would agree is a good thing. None of the “you'll get this job if you're a good lay” theme or body-shaming or marital strife common to many of these cartoons. The beefcake challenge I proposed earlier is still in effect. I don't feel gratuitous nudity is wrong, just that there's a disproportionate amount and I'm not only trying to promote my own preference.
