We explore both the good points and the bad of those 20th-century icons, the late Hugh M. Hefner and his Playboy magazine.

Includes excerpts from the Times's fine obituary. Plus personal reminiscences by KD exploring the role of Playboy in his adolescent development--and the magazine's role in American culture. With a relevant song by Tom Lehrer.

NOTE: Adult themes and language: listener discretion is advised.
New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "leaky roof") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
