It's time to sit back and listen to a side of an album. This time it's from the collection of cartoonist Charles Treadwell (ep. 4 and 13). (self titled LP) is the pick of the evening.

Cartoonist Charles Treadwell and The 13th Floor Elevators
Let's hang out at the lifeguard shack down by the jetty with cartoonist Charles Treadwell.

Do you like a good prank call? Do you remember the time when one could make a prank phone call? If you do let's take a ride back to the mid-80's with this compilation cassette of prank phone calls from the legendary , Pranks for the Memories, and The Pittsburgh Calls. We'll play some excerpts from a tape called OUT OF MIND (somewhere in space a all-star crank call compilation tape). It is wise-ass humor in it's truest and rawest form. It is also a great example of good old fashioned pre-internet underground tape trading. Dontfreakzine@gmail.comPlaces...info_outline
