The Residents Radio Special is an album released by The Residents in 1979. This cassette was a promotional item issued to radio stations shortly before the release of Eskimo. It was soon offered through the mail-order service in limited quantities on cassette. The cassette was re-released in 1980 and 1984. A limited edition, entitled Eat Exuding Oinks!, was released in 2001, featuring the original radio show and the digitally remastered versions of the songs. A highlight is the first official release of the cover of The Mothers of Invention's "King Kong", with Snakefinger on guitar.
