The History Of Funk

The History Of Funk – May 31, 2013 at 10:00pm

this episode is no longer available


We spread out for 5 hours as we bring early 60’s comedy and sex together, including some extensive ramblings by Lenny Bruce, Helen Gurley Brown (“Sex And The Single Girl”) addressing a live audience in ’64, all but the forbidden words from “The Sensual Woman,” and a lot of “Sex Dirt” from The Weatherman. Though completely cleaned up for the FCC, it all has a nice, risky broadcast feel to it. Plus the usual UFO’s and music from the era.
