May & June 1996, Folio copy

Sunday, May 5, 1996, Back of the Book We're only on once in May, so let's make the most of it! In news of the former elements of the video portion of this program, which have escaped into real life, our hero Little Squishy, from a pocket of resistance on the World Wide Web, makes the traditional peace offering of an XXL flannel shirt to the leader of The Deadly Cult of the Tocks Tap in an effort to dissuade them from the use of the Lotusland Mediocrity device on a global scale to deal with the problem of overpopulation by declaring everyone who is not a Cult member non-existent. In the current video portion of our program, Itchy T. Echidna takes us on a helicopter ride through the New York city subway system, which he notes has proven the safest way to ride those mean rails. (

Sunday, May 19, 1996, Although we have not been so informed, we suspect that we are preempted this night.

Sunday, June 2, 1996, Back of the Book Gay, Lesbian & Bisexual Pride month has begun! (Well, your bisexual host added that last part, but that's what it'll be called in the future.) This is also known as The Time of Spandex in honor of what your host will be staring at over the next season. In a political segment, Ennui The Hedgehog reveals that at the upcoming RepubliNazi convention Jizm Helms (R-Stupid Carolina) and Pert Buchanan (Nobody) will endorse the use of condoms -- their own brand of Thought Condoms, which are used to prevent their followers' minds from being contaminated by actual ideas. Your host will rant about not having made the finals of the tryouts for the U.S. Olympic Self-Abuse team because he uses two hands. He sees this as a bias of the small, er, minded officials. (

Sunday, June 16, 1996, Back of the Book It's an hour past Bloomsday plus 92 years, and your host is probably still searching for his own Nora Barnacle as a part of his endlessly ongoing 1994, Spring Offensive. Meanwhile he has certainly found his own Nobodaddy lurking in the interior of his head. Is there even a Molly Bloom approaching his life now? The echo of one? As Summer approaches, your host is contemplating a journey through Clongowes Wood to see if perhaps a Significant Other of whatever gender is waiting for him in those disenhallowed halloids. If not, he will embark upon a journey of discovery through the fair courts of life and see what carnality awaits him, perhaps even taking shooting practice in Martello Tower. Do you get the impression he's dabbled in J.A.(A.)J.'s life when unemployed? (

Sunday, June 30, 1996, Back of the Book This is the tail end (!!) of Gay, Lesbian & Bisexual Pride Day. Your bisexual host is probably completely exhausted from the events of the day and will doubtless go on and on about all of the people of various genders he of the wandering eye has been distracted by over this weekend. He will no doubt talk about his involvement, in one way or some other, with the gay movement since 1970. He can tell you of the many gay and lesbian politicians and movement conservatives who have old photographs of him -- pasted to their dart boards. So if you want to hear a review of the past month's activities from a perspective that no one else is both qualified and daring enough to render, tune in. Free Form Live Radio by R. Paul Martin. (
