The Credibility Gap: An Album of Political Pornography





The KRLA news team does headline-based satire of the summer of Nixon's election year, with songs, poetry, and bits on Eldridge Cleaver, the asteroid Icarus, and the death of Bobby Kennedy. Not exactly funny but neither was 1968, you dig? (This is the Credibility Gap team just prior to the arrival of Harry Shearer, Michael McKean, and David Lander.)

Introduction - Voting Day
Kennedy-LBJ Debate
Drunk Voter
Long Lines
Gun Collector
Johnson and Central Park Violence
Dusty Hoofs
Integrated Heart
Faith Healing
Icarus
Abominable Snow Man
Soul on Ice
Poway
