This is a plug for WFMU, an NYC radio station that also streams and also offers podcasts. I entered this contest and won an appearance on the 80-track CD. Here are the best 18 tracks from the CD for you to enjoy. It's fun to hear Hotel California again without the time commitment, and the same goes for Stairway To Heaven and Bolero. There is something interesting going on in every track. Link in comments.
Donald Pleasance and Karen Allen present a collection of horror-movie moments. Included is a montage of victims desperately racing through their homes locking doors and windows which could amuse. Link in comments.
Here are 40 or so Ask Doctor Science spots that were often heard on Public Radio back when. They were created by Dan Coffey and Merle Kessler of Iowa's own expatriated Duck's Breath Mystery Theatre. Also included is the radio play Dr. Science And The Sea Monkeys From Hell. Link in comments.
This might have been the last blooper collection from Kermit Schaefer. Some of these are played for a live audience which helps. Merv Griffin of CBS-TV describes these as "really marvelous". He should know. Link in comments.
Human fallibility can be fun and has been documented in Ripley's, True Facts, Fenton and Fowler's, and elsewhere. This Darwin Awards book became a 3-CD audiobook with 115 tracks that could consume 2.5 hours of your listening life. Link in comments.
A four-record box set in which the brothers cut it up with Bing, Fannie Brice, Jane Powell, Mel Torme, Betty Grable, Jack Benny, Mel Blanc, Lucille Ball, Dinah Shore, and others. It all went out on LIVE RADIO. Link in comments.
Side 1 covers George's Internment Camp years, UCLA, and his acting in Rodan, General Hospital, Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea, and more. Side 2 is about Trek and the friction within the cast. It's still going on today. Link in comments.
Show 1005 has Buddy Hackett, Sheri Lewis, and Bill Bixby. Show 1007 has Jaye P. Morgan, Artie Johnson, and Abby Lane. Jaye says something that results in an audio and video bleep. I have a guess of my own. Link in comments.
In 1976 Star Trek was thriving with syndication, the cartoons and novels, and convention appearances by Gene Roddenberry. This LP was part of Roddenberry promoting the franchise and trying to make a movie happen - and he succeeded.
The judges for these shows were Alan Sues, June Lockhart, Gavin McLeod, Anson Williams, Phyllis Diller, Pat Harrington, Arte Johnson, Eva Gabor, and Peter Lawford - all lost in the sands of time. Yet the UNKNOWN COMIC remains. Discuss. Link in comments.
Very early Surf and Rock tracks from poorly documented American Garage bands - I think. The Shadows are not the British band of the same name but the Fendermen are the guys that later did MULE SKINNER BLUES. It is all very enthusiastic and you might enjoy.

We went to see Pericles, in the round, and there I sneezed, and blew out my bone graft.
The play began and so it goes, a bloody mass shot from my nose, my program cut in half.
The actress wore a snow-white dress- a target for my clotting mess- a flying crimson shaft.
