Magic Whistle Radio Hour 122

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. 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:

Tip Top Comics #6, 1 of 4

The first few comic books were just reprints of Sunday strips, such as this issue of Tip Top Comics from October 1936.
Grin and Bear It by George Lichty
Hawkshaw the Detective by Gus Mager
The Captain and the Kids by Bernard Dibble.
Not sure who did Freddie and Fritz, but the main strip is by Dudley T. Fisher, Jr.
These features were written by Bill Conselman and drawn by Charlie Plumb.
Both the top and bottom are by Paul Berdanier.
Don't know who did these Joe Jinks strips. There's a signature on one but the strip's not of a high enough resolution to read it.
