Magic Whistle Radio Hour 227

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? The time's next to each song in case you don't like something or it's icky or if you don't want your kids to hear it. Don't let offense at one song cloud your impression of the curation as a whole. 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 up to December 2018. 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:

more unwoke cartoons

I post cartoons that might have been acceptable thirty or more years ago (by white males anyway) but here are some more, plus some that might have been wrong even then.

I hate that word “woke” though. Just that it's replaced “politically correct” now that's been taken away from us. What's better? Enlightened? Evolved? Anyway, here's a baker's dozen of cartoons they wouldn't print today.

Cavalcade, c. 1940s
Cavalcade, February 1942
Cavalcade, March 1943
Martin Filchock
Gaze, August 1959
Mike Williams
Punch June 6, 1973
Rake, January 1962
Saturday Evening Post May 6, 1944
Fury, March 1962
Buck Brown
Playboy, April 1968
Stanley Rayon
Gee-Whiz, April 1967
Al Stine
Rogue, October 1964
Topper, August 1963
