Transcript Every Wednesday at Midnight, KPFT-FM's own Marty Manning presents THE HUMP, a show featuring topics of an unusual sexual nature and is open to people who feel that this label may represent them. A few of the up-coming featured topics, though specific shows are not scheduled on any particular Wednesdays, will be dealing with transsexuals, trans- vestites, programs about and with the Cockettes, new techniques in sexual surgery from all parts of the globe, and go-go girls and their experiences. Says Marty, "I see this show as a possible forum for information for gays and other sexually misunderstood people. I'm interested in response from the listening audience and would like to do interviews and call-ins while the show is in progress." (224-4000). THE HUMP is so called because it comes on Wednesday at the middle of Marty's week. The name dates back to his college days when he went out Wednesdays at noon to get drunk and pass the hump of the week and it also seemed like a good name for a sexually oriented show .... "I hope some day to see bumper stickers that say Give Me The Hump." DRAG CONTESTS CANCELED Philadelphia -- Because of strong adverse reaction, the cancellation has been announced of the three remaining competitions in the series of "Through the Looking Glass" female-impersonation contests whose ultimate winner would have received a sex- change operation. The announcement was made by Henri David Enterprises Lts., the contest's sponsor. A spokesman for Henri David indicated that the comments in the telephone calls and the letters ranged from accusations of "exploitation" to charges of "poortaste". Denying these, the spokesman said that the Philadelphia contest, as with all others presented by "Mr. David," as he bills himself, was in good taste and "certainly didn't offend anyone who attended." "However,"he went on,"rather than alienate the community at large, we have decided to cancel the present series/' The spokesman conceded that some of the comments came from "the gay community which surprises us." Some of the callers identified themselves as being with church grops, and some said they were doctors, the spokesman said. The spokesman refusedto comment on what would be done with regard to the first three winners who were selected from an entry list of 20 in the Philadelphia competition. While it was dismissed as a "crank call," the spokesman admitted that there was a threat on Henri David's life. "However, we did not wish to risk subjecting either the contestants or "Mr. David" to any abuse--verbal or physical," the spokesman said. "Since 'Mr. David' has never had any reaction such as this before," the spokesman added, "it must be assumed that the objections were based on the sex-change operation as a 'prize'." The spokesman conceded that this was a factor in the refusal of ads by some of the media. "It would appear that future 'drag-queen' contests sponsored by 'Mr. David' would be just as acceptable as they have been in the past if the prizes are less controversial," the spokesman added. The other contests were to have been held in New York City, Washington, D.C, and Atlanta, Ga., and it was admitted that protests were made in those cities as well as in Philadelphia. "We hope that this matter is now closed," he concluded.
