Magic Whistle Radio Hour 170

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 2018. 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:

Cartoons I don't get #39

Cavalcade, February 1942
Donald Reilly
Playboy, July 1968
Playboy, December 1959
This time it was them that forgot the caption and not me.
For Laughing Out Loud, March 1960
Hello Buddies, June 1952
I might get this if I knew who this was. I think the joke is that a television personality is covering an ancient biblical event.
Punch, April 1984
Judge October 9, 1909
This caricature by Miguel Covarrubias is of someone. Damned if I know who, though.
New Yorker April 4, 1925

In the cartoon world, you'd think there were more topless restaurants than the one or two that existed in real life and they were places that married couples went.
Sir!, October 1967
These next two are from Sex to Sexty, circa 1970s
Bill Wenzel
Punch January 8, 1920

Will-Yum, 1 of 2

Another issue of Dell Comics' Four Color Comics, #902 from May 1958, credited to the creator of the newspaper strip, Dave Gerard, though I think it was by a Dell staff cartoonist.
