1947project podcast #5, August 3, 2007
In this podcast, Crimebo Returns and with him, the debut of Mary McCoy's new feature, DEMPSEYWATCH 27. What's new in the wild world of prize fighter Jack Dempsey, The Manassa Mauler? Why, nervous breakdowns and explosive diarrhea, that's what! Thrill to the poisoning peril of the dopey employers who fired their Japanese houseboy, then asked him to serve one last cup of joe, then marvel at the 1927 tale that so neatly apes last week's wacky criminal claim of cranky nudist "royal" Frederic Von Anhalt Gabor. Also on the Celestial tip, a Japanese youth complains when a giant negro appears from nowhere and hangs the smaller man by his heels. PLUS: the heppest events of the coming weeks in 1927 and 2007 Los Angeles, and a moment from Crimebo in which our Crime Clown takes a break from his usual hyper negativity to share a selection of things he truly, truly "wuvs."
