The Residents Radio Special is a promotional release by The Residents that was initially sent to radio stations in August of 1977. It later released in 1983 and again in 2002 under the title Eat Exuding Oinks!.


History

The Residents Radio Special was issued to radio stations to promote the release of the then incomplete Eskimo. It was soon offered through their mail-order service in limited quantities on cassette, and re-released in 1983 in a variety of different colours.

The Residents Radio Special features the first official release of the cover of The Mothers of Invention's "King Kong", with Snakefinger on guitar, as well as "Kamakazi Lady", both from the Baby Sex demo tape. Otherwise, it contains mostly single tracks, as well as tracks from the recent Fingerprince/Babyfingers project.

A limited-edition, entitled Eat Exuding Oinks!, was released in 2002, featuring the original radio show and digitally remastered versions of most of the songs.

Most recently the tracks were included with Birdsong/Hayabusa Landings's re-issues of The Mole Trilogy.
