Captain Billy's Whiz Bang, Vol. 2, No. 24, September, 1921, by W. H. Fawcett (1885 - 1940)

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/captain-billys-whiz-bang-vol-2-no-24-september-1921-by-w-h-fawcett/

"Captain Billy's Whiz Bang" was an iconic magazine of wit and humor launched by W.H. Fawcett in 1919. Each 64-page issue was packed with jokes, quips, and humorous bits of writing. Each year it grew in popularity, and Fawcett’s success lead to the formation of the well-known Fawcett Publications, which issued Whiz Comics and introduced Captain Marvel. The magazine was immortalized in a line in the song “Trouble” from Meredith Wilson’s “The Music Man.” This issue has articles from, "Doug’s Peacock Walk," "Naughty New York!" to "Japanese Bathing Beauties," and the usual features such as "Smokehouse Poetry," "Pasture Pot Pourri,"and "Whiz Bang Editorials."

Greetings -

A quick check of my DPL plate shows that I more than one project with just one or two sections needed, so...

Let's do another Whiz Bang.

DPL ready.
