This is the last part of the only issue of Avon Periodicals' gagzine from 1949. The other parts were posted last week and the week before.

With their original gags, they also reprinted a few syndicated strips like Barney Google and Snuffy Smith by Fred Lasswell.

Flip #1, 1 of 2

This was Flip,Harvey Comics' entry into the parody genre. The first issue here was published in April 1954. I previously posted the second issue, the only other one, a few years ago.

The cover and first story are drawn by Howard Nostrand.
Not sure who drew this, though.
This art is by Bob Powell

Sick #85, 3 of 3

The final part of Sick from August 1971. The first two parts are here and here.

This was illustrated by Tony Tallarico
I think this was a reprint.
This piece by Arnoldo Franchioni was probably a reprint too.
John Costanza
Spiro Agnew's legacy is mostly remembered for references on the Simpsons.
I had to look on Wikipedia to see all these people died in plane crashes. Too soon?
They really milkedthis quote as much as they could. I'm surprised when anyone under 35 crosses the street so it's either all relative, things have changed since then, or a little of both.

Magic Whistle Radio Hour 87

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:
