What exactly is Norman shouting? "Ironing globe, paper"?

Obviously losing a hand affected the speech centers in Norman's brain. After he lost his other hand, he started shouting "Car leg, broomstick!"

But you don't hear Father Harry talking about THAT, now do ya?

Hey, Father Harry is still going strong... puts out 4 Discs of PSAs every year. If WFMU doesn't still receive Father Harry, I can drop them an email and make sure you get your quarterly fix of Harry!

Station Manager Ken

Hey Joey - Yes, please send us all the Father Harry you can! Thanks.

The "God Squad" vignettes were produced by the Archdiocesan Media Center in San Francisco for distribution to commercial rock stations. Locally they aired on KFRC, one of the RKO Drake format stations, the #1 music station here for many years.

I was drawn to this website because I happened to see an interview with Fr. Harry on local TV this morning. He's still around, but has been kicked upstairs, managing the archbishop's media affairs now.

it sucks that you attributed the GI Joe PSA remixes to ebaumsworld. that site has never done anything* original, they just take other people's work, watermark it with their url and post it. the GI Joe PSAs were done by Eric Fensler of Fenslerfilm.

for more on the internet hatred of ebaumsworld, see their wikipedia entry.

* - i'm sure they've done something original, but i don't know what.

I used to play this Father Harry God Squad PSA at KMSU-AM at Mankato State Unniversity in 1975/76. It was the collective favourite of most of the DJ's working at KMSU. Considering the competition - Star Trek Hard Drug Abuse PSA - this is notable appreciation. Thanks WFMU for allowing me to share Father Harry's genius with my London Family.

I came accross this blog today and noticed that the song, "Slap Her Down Again, Paw!" was refered to as a "great peaen to abuse women". The person that wrote that evidently never read the lyrics to the song: "slap her down again, paw, slap her down again. Make her tell us more paw, tell us where she's been. We don't need our neighbors talkin' about our kin. Slap her down again, paw, slap her down again." For those who don't know, that song was about infidelity in a time when fidelity was prised, not like today when people have sex to see if the person is suitable to date, instead of dating someone to see if they are suitable to have sex with. It would also be interesting to find out that person's veiw of the "Sarlet Letter" or the song "We Don't Have to Take Our Clothes Off". I wish it were still "when the air was clean and sex was dirty." People wonder why AIDS, HIV, and other forms of STDs are so rampid in todays society. Look at what is out there today. Songs like "Permiscuous", "Don't you wish your girlfriend was a lot like me?" and "It's getting hot in here, why don't you take your clothes off". It is also harder today to get a divorce just because a spouse is unfaithful, because it is so common. The U.S. wants to restric "marriage" to a man and a woman unions, but those unions don't mean the same as they did when Arthur Godfry sang that song, so what is the point to any marriage being legal?

Perhaps if you learned to use English correctly, we could better understand your bigotry. . . we already understand that you CANNOT "interpret" the words to the song, which deals with DATING an "unapproved" man, not with adultery or infidelity, and with being abused by one's own family as a result.
