Oom Pah Pah! Today is Tuba Day

I've been dying to post this cover for Tuba day but missed my cue two years in a row.  No way was I going to let that happen again. You just got to love this image but I've long wondered how she made it past the art editor.  Consider that Gay Parisienne was among the most notorious of the so-called under the counter pulps. It had a sordid reputation to live up to. Just how Enoch managed to convince a dirty minded salesman that a girl perched on a brass tuba would sell magazines is beyond me.  But then again, she is a Bolles girl!
