Crosley Bendix Radio Reviews is a collection of recordings edited from a wealth of material broadcast on KPFA's Over the Edge radio show, hosted by Negativland member Don Joyce weekly. Each recording on this particular disc comes from a different broadcast, all featuring the character Crosley Bendix.

As a regular feature on Over the Edge, Crosley Bendix (dubbed the "Director of Stylistic Premonitions for The Universal Media Netweb") presents Monologues on cultural phenomena, with a typically "Negativland" sense of humor throughout. The selections here are fairly broad examples of Crosley's critical style. Probably his most famous monologue regards the discovery of a new primary color, called "Squant."

This album was released in 1993 by Negativland's own label, Seeland Records, as a CD.
