Magic Whistle Radio Hour 131

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 January 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:

The Comics #1, 1 of 4/ I'm Back

The computer where I stored all my blog images is back in commission, so now I can return to it. Hopefully in the three weeks I've not posted things regularly, people haven't forgotten it existed.

Up now we have The Comics #1 from Dell Comics in March 1937. Most of the first comic books were recycled Sunday strips and the size was one fourth of what was then the size of a newspaper page.

Not sure who the cover artist is on this
You Wouldn't Believe It by John Hix was originally Strange as it Seems
Wash Tubbs by Roy Crane has been kept in print but is more commonly known as Captain Easy
artist unknown
This J. R. Williams, not this one.
The information I have says this comes from a Big Little Book of the same name by Morton H. Cowen.
