Bughouse #2, 1 of 2

Now I have the second issue of Bughouse, Ajax-Farrell's venture into the parody genre. The fourth of which I posted a few years ago. This one's from June 1954 and the cover, as well as the interior art, was drawn by the Iger Studio.

Sick #16, 2 of 4

Here's the second part of this issue of Sick from October 1962. The last part was here.
Art here probably by Bob Powell

The contents page says of this article:

Sick Clark has just signed a four-year contract with ABC-TV. Now he's waiting for THEM to sign.
Apologies for the racism you are about to see.
This was only seventeen years after the war ended. They were either trying to push the envelope or maybe they just weren't thinking.

As an overworked blurb writer says of this:

An exclusive interview with Adolf Hitler...He's changed his name to conceal his identity—Now, he calls himself Frank Hitler.
Usually parodies of MAD were written by former disgruntled staffers. This is probably no exception. “Bob Guy” is most likely not a real person. It was also before Jack Davis had gone back to them.

My theory is sort of hinted at in this blurb:

What happens at the editorial meetings of that other humor magazine, “Field and Stream”... They discuss the writers who got away.

Magic Whistle Radio Hour 71

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:
