Radio Free Nixon

Berkeley's DJ Milhous pillaged American pop culture to create these sound-collages featuring the Funky Nixons' music. Sound-bites from Groucho Marx, Richard Nixon, Monty Python, Shakespeare, the Wizard of Oz, Daffy Duck, vintage radio commercials, and dozens of others sources are spliced into a 20-minute radio show originally aired on Berkeley Liberation Radio.

Please pass these shows along! Play them really loud at parties. Play them on your own radio station. Call your friends and play them into their answering machines. Thanks!

Note - In our humble opinion, the third show is the best
