Magic Whistle Radio Hour 49

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. I make no claims to "discovering" or "owning" anything. Probably 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 type "Audio" in the search engine. Or if you're too lazy to press a button more than once, here are the first thirty. 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's what information I was able to find:

Snappy, July 1956, part 4

The fourth part of the cartoons from Snappy, another one of Humorama's fifties digest magazines of what the average Joe imagines high society is like. I've been posting examples each Thursday.

This one is by Bill Wenzel.
Note the spelling on the sign.
Only bald old men with walrus mustaches are worth marrying (presumably for money). Young guys in tuxedos have no idea what they're doing.

Nuts #5, 2 of 2

The second part of the final issue of Premier Magazines' Nuts! from November 1954. The other half was posted last week.

According to Grand Comics Database, this parody of the Miss Rheingold campaign was drawn by Hy Fleishman.
As was this, and the article after it.
I think many of the publishers, in their attempts to cash in on the fly-by-night parody craze, would use fillers they had on hand in order to get material to fill their humor quota.

Sick #51, 3 of 4

The third part of this issue of Sick from March 1967. The previous two parts are here and here.

This parody of Get Smart drawn by Angelo Torres parodies not just that show but the TV spy genre as a whole.

The contents page, which refers to it as Super Spies TV Special says of it, “A complicated TV mishmash in which various super spies get involved with one another—a mishmash so complicated that Inspector Waverly winds up getting the girl! This is the story of a spy who goes to work in Woolworth's and becomes a counterspy—and winds up being an agent in a Turkish bath!”
For those of you who think Bill Cosby's career began with Dr. Huxtable and don't know at one time people liked him, here's proof to contradict what you thought.
Teenman, drawn by George Tuska, is also highlighted on the contents page:

“This time out, Teenman tackles the draft dodgers of this country—guys so tough that instead of burning their draft cards they burn their draft boards! It all started when Teenman saw a sign “Draft Dodgers” and got very mad—he happens to be a Los Angeles baseball fan!”
