RUSH: It’s archive time. We’re going to go way back. The early days of the program, the Grooveyard of Forgotten Favorites. Dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut. Yes, my friends. It’s worthy. This is a condom update.
(Playing of condom update theme song.)
One of my all-time favorite tunes, folks, one of the first songs that I ever played as a struggling young disc jockey, a star of the future, back in 1967. I remember introducing the condom update in Sacramento in 1984, and you would not believe — this is how times have changed. My dad even heard about it, ‘What are you doing? You can’t say that word on the radio!’ I had little old ladies in Sacramento up in arms when this happened. Here’s the news. The only reason this is funny is because of the cigar tax that came out yesterday that they were trying to get $10 per cigar. ‘In order to promote safe sex among India’s prostitutes, Hindustan Latex Ltd. has developed tobacco flavored condoms, making a man’s … cigar … resemble,’ a cigar. It has a band. (Laughing) Tobacco flavored condoms. This is the ultimate liberal quagmire, ladies and gentlemen. (Laughing) They gotta get these in the United States.
