Supermouse #21,1 of 2

Supermouse was a recurring feature in Standard Comics' funny animal comics, and for a while had his own solo book. Here is an example of an issue from October 1952. Not sure who did the art, though the feature was usually drawn by Milton Stein.

Magic Whistle Radio Hour 79

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. You don't get the playlists, though, and you can't get the shows after that. 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:
