Sunday, October 9, 1994, Back of the Book Itchy T. Echidna profiles counter-Karmic entrepreneur Mr. Bilious T. Slugbladder about his latest venture: franchised body odor salons. Outlined is Mr. Slugbladder's infomercial where he illustrates the special machinery used to impart the odors to clients. He swears that any resemblance between this machinery and a New York City subway car is purely coincidental. In a special effort to get political protection from his enemies, Pope Weaselpenis XVI announces a special graft grant from Senator Jesse Helms, (R, Some Damned Carolina) for the marketing of his own, personally approved brand of Papal cigarettes. Named "Holy Smokes," each cigarette carries with it a two weeks' indulgence so that although the smoker will die sooner he or she will spend less time in Purgatory afterwards.

Sunday, October 23, 1994, Back of the Book Heavily into Autumn in New York, we celebrate the season by inviting the faculty of the Midtown Boys' School for Necrophilia to help us in our annual search for bodies under the Fall leaves. Mick Turition and his Flowing Yellow Band bid farewell to Back of the Book as they prepare to become the house band in the Golden Shower Room at the soon to be opened Uro-Disney theme park in Kidney, Kansas. Showing the kind of bravery that everyone at WBAI needs the band members unanimously discount the recent incident in the theme park's Bladder Pool when a rogue effluent escaped and trampled several ensaffroned bathers. Ennui the Hedgehog interviews the man who had invented that new wind brake which when applied brought the atmosphere to a lurching halt the other day. Free Form Live Radio by R. Paul Martin.
Sunday, November 6, 1994, Back of the Book Well, this is the time of year when your host is usually starting to get "depressed through the floorboards." Is it Seasonal Affective Disorder, or just related to the fact that he only bathes once a year on New Year's Eve? Sleeping in his bunker during the non-dark hours, and eschewing any contact with the dayblight, your host discusses his personal economy which is based exclusively on money by- products. Hector and Anvil get literary as they review the latest book by that Irish-Chinese chef turned drunken Great Writer of Fiction. With a theme of the universal angst of humankind in an uncaring, unfeeling multiverse the tome also doubles a an excellent monograph on stir-fry cooking. The boys predict that this season everyone will be reading "Finnegan's Wok." Free Form Live Radio by R. Paul Martin.
Sunday, November 20, 1994, Back of the Book Seeking to keep on the move during this time when it is most dangerous for stationary turkeys, J. Danforth "Squeaky" Quayle III continues his whirlwind tour to get the RepubliNazi nomination for President in '96. Campaigning with a slogan of "I'm Still Stupid!" the former Vice President talks to us live from his latest campaign stop where he's holding a public burning of copies of the Bill of Rights. In a culinary/capital punishment segment Chef Merde Zut cooks up a bunch of poisonous gunk that sticks to the roof of your mouth and then takes root. The last time he tried this recipe the gunk, during an unguarded moment in the cooking process, leapt up from the sizzling pan and escaped. It then formed an alliance of all the other smells in the WBAI Canteen and demanded its own radio program. Free Form Live Radio by R. Paul Martin.
