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. 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: GENE MOSS- I Want To Bite Your Hand (1964)
Saturdays are reserved for the audio portion of the blog, but I always have to point out whenever there's a Jack Davis illustration.

ALFRED E. NEUMAN- What? Me Worry (1959)
MEL BLANC- Flying Saucers (1951)
Has any wife ever actually thrown dishware at their husband? Where did that trope come from? Besides that causing bleeding and concussions, unless they're really cheap dishes it seems every time there was a fight like that it would cost at least a hundred dollars. He must have done something really bad.
THE “5” ROYALES- Monkey Hips And Rice (1954)
NATIONAL LAMPOON- Harry Block: Reason #408
from National Lampoon Radio Hour, circa 1973
THE WOMENFOLK- Our Love Is Special (1965)
Album of studio musicians doing covers of then-popular songs based on the idea that 1)artists did not usually write songs for themselves, 2)they were much cheaper than the actual hit records, and 3)they were aimed at a younger audience that wouldn't know the difference.
LOU CARTER- Louie's Love Letters In the Dust (1957)
Parody of Love Letters in the Sand. Although versions of the song had existed since the 1930s, this is probably spoofing the Pat Boone version.
