Fans, complaints continue pouring in! Everyone is bored by the awkward and slow pace of this self-supposed “adventure!” We’re hoping it starts going somewhere just as much as you! And now that the script is complete and in our hands, we can say with authority that maybe, uh, you should take a break for the next…er… roughly two hundred weeks! Because THEN, IT DOES (and boy DOES it) really pick up the awkward and slow pace! We’ll see you all then!

And as for the rest of you… That’s right! You guessed it! It’s time for another installment of the “Thugs, Mugs, and Slugs” Radio Mystery Hour! Errol Ellis has graciously donated some of their most shocking, upsetting episodes from the 1940’s and ‘50’s! Be sure to tune in to the “Thugs, Mugs, and Slugs” Radio Mystery Hour every Friday evening!

Thanks for supporting our sponsor, the “Thugs, Mugs, and Slugs” Radio Mystery Hour! Here’s a classic, memorable episode right now! Followed by this week’s exciting Dick Hammer daily… “Wind the Clock Deadly!”

Enjoy!
-Rob, Editor-in-Chief

[radio blaring a generic big band “swing” tune]
Gruff voice: I said, would you turn that God damn racket down. I need to think!
[radio continues to blare]
Gruff: This is enough, God damn it. I’m climbing over this God damn seat and --
[car brakes screeching]

Gruff: Oof! God DAMN IT! You fucking asshole! And you, stop smirking at him! Turn the God damn radio off or -

High pitched voice: We already told you it helps him drive better. And it relaxes me. We lost ‘em, didn’t we? So what are you complaining about?

Gruff: I’m complaining that you fuck-wits have signed our death warrants! It’s just a matter of time before Cosper figures out what –

High pitched: Cosper Cosper Cosper!

Gruff: You idiot. DIPSHIT! Cosper’s gonna have your head and mine, thanks to you shit-wits. God damn it. God DAMN it.

[radio continues blaring]

Gruff: You don’t know Cosper. When he does you in, you’ll be pleading for a God damn week before he puts you out of your misery. He’s vengeful! Vindictive! I’m dead, I’m dead…

High pitched: You gotta settle down. What’re you so worked up about? We’ll get out of this okay.

Gruff: I don’t know what’s giving me a bigger headache – this awful din, or your God damn voice!

High pitched: Now that’s getting personal, Nicky!

Gruff: In fact, you know what? Fuck this shit…

High pitched: Nicky, what the fuck…

Gruff: Goddamn music didn’t help him…heh heh… miss that tree, with God damn …ha ha…bullets in their brains…

[music continues to blare]
[clicking of a nob, off and on, off and on. Music continues to blare.]

Gruff: Oh fuck this shit. I’m fucked anyways.
[gun cocking]
[one gunshot, and a body slumping to the ground]
[music continues to blare, as sirens grow closer]

If you enjoy DICK HAMMER: THE DAILIES, as much as we do, perhaps you might consider poking around on our fantastic MERCHANDISE PAGE, and supporting the otherwise utterly unthanked and unpaid talent involved in the slavish production of this treasure, solely for your enjoyment!
