July & August 1997, Folio copy

Sunday, July 13, 1997, Back of the Book Summer is here and tomorrow is Bastille Day! In honor of this event Little Squishy will storm the bastions of the "Deadly Cult of the Tocks Tap," which consists mostly of a large rock under which they plot to take over and sell the electromagnetic spectrum. He'll need a big crowbar because they're quite allergic to sunshine. If it's Summer then that smell must be coming from the WBAI Canteen, where refrigeration is considered politically incorrect and those who produce the Bacteria Rights program dictate the culture. For a taste treat on these hot days our French Chef Merde Zut has prepared a helping of his famous boiled grease sandwiches which are rated by both the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization.

Sunday, July 27, 1997, Back of the Book As part of our coverage of the Summer games (What do you mean, what Summer games? Go along with it!) Itchy T. Echidna brings us live coverage of the Literary Figure Mud Wrestling Round Robin, as part of the video portion of our program. In a political and fetishistic segment Hector and Anvil document the major liberal contribution to Western Culture - the wine and cheese party. Their main focus is the bane of these events: the guest who drinks too much wine, and then proceeds to go off in a corner with the Camembert to commit fromage frottage. In an ambush interview some less than stealthy practitioners are found trying to brush the blue cheese off their pants, while (in Greenwich Village) a party is found where the Roquefort is openly savaged by all attendees.

Sunday, August 10, 1997, Back of the Book In a very reverent religious segment Pope Weaselpenis XVI issues a whole lot of Papal Bull on the recently highly publicized subject of cheese- sexuals and their practice of fromage frottage, which he says used to be one of the sins in the Ten Commandments, "It was the Third Commandment, but then some other Goddamned thing bumped it off," says the Profiteering pontiff just before he condemns the practice but says he loves the sinners. Bill Clinton, who admits he is considered quite caseous, says that he has full sympathy for the person who keeps his or her activities confined the bedroom where they might keep an aged Swiss, but that he prefers that they not flaunt their lifestyle. Jesse Helms (R. Large Intestine) says he just flat out doesn't want them in the military. Free Form Live Radio by R. Paul Martin. (rpmartin@interport.net)

Sunday, August 24, 1997, Back of the Book In less than one week your host will have occupied half of the twentieth century and will begin to have survived a majority of it. Undoubtedly he's extremely impressed with this fact and will go on about it for just about the entire two hours. Perhaps he'll take you from his earliest memory, watching a trolley car shower sparks from its overhead cables onto Ninth St. & Seventh Ave. in cobblestone covered Park Slope, to his latest adventure, looking at Ninth St. & Seventh Ave. in Park Slope in 1997, and being shocked at how the old, working class neighborhood has been gentrified. Certainly he'll ruminate on how amazed he is to be about to turn 50 years of age and how, in his mind, he is still wondering what it will be like when he becomes a teenager.
