Magic Whistle Radio Hour 144

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? The time's next to each song in case you don't like something or it's icky or if you don't want your kids to hear it. Don't let offense at one song cloud your impression of the curation as a whole. 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 up to July 2017. 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:

0:00 RENEE HAMATY- The Samisen

“[...]Sally presents a full hour of top flight television entertainment each evening, and she's backed by such capable partners as 'Popeye' and the 'Three Stooges', Then Sally has some double-barreled ammunition that she shoots through the screens of Delaware Valley. This ammo is better known as Sally's honor roll of birthdays, her special guest stars, but above all it's her vivacious personality[...]
“[...]When Sally set her heart on a career in the entertainment industry, she started on radio where she soon became one of the East Coast's favorite Country and Western disc jockeys. Then came television and WFIL-TV soon found itself a new star—Sally Starr. The Station's confidence was well placed and with ratings always around the 30.0 mark Sally is now the new 'Queen of the West' for millions.”
