Today's Reader Appeal - Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!

| No Comments

I'm looking for a comedy bit that I first heard around 1980, so I know it's at least that old. It was a parody of radio commercials for Sunday afternoon drag races, and it went something (loosely) like this:

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! U.S. Amphetamine Speedway! Sunday!

See the amazing wheel-standing rapping lunatic Corvair! Sunday!

See Shad Crapper light his nose hairs on fire as he pulsates and blasts down that quarter mile thrillway! Sunday!

See Tim Leary and his Superblown head! Sunday!

See Big Daddy Roth and funny cars from across the universe! Sunday!

12 bucks buys you the whole seat, but you'll only need the edge! Sunday!

BE there!

Some Googleage revealed the following: it was probably done by 'The Phlorescent Leech & Eddie' a/k/a 'Flo & Eddie' a/a/k/a Marc Volman and Howard Kaylan of The Turtles - who, due to a spectacularly badly negotiated contract, couldn't even use their real names as musicians after The Turtles went belly-up - and probably as part of a Frank Zappa album. Since Flo and Eddie played only on these Zappa albums:

that narrows it a bit, maybe. If not, it could have been on one of these Flo & Eddie albums: Any ideas?
