Subject: Trying to Identify Author of "Makin' Wookiee"
From: ***@gmail.com
Newsgroups: alt.music.filk

Greetings! I'm trying to identify the author of "Makin' Wookiee" (source
song and subject self-evident from the title, I assume :-> ) I saw a
reference to the base song and the filk lyrics popped in my head so I'm
pretty sure it came from the SF fan community but the only place online
I can find the lyrics could only identify the source as "the song first
appeared in around 1979 at the University of Connecticut." I donated my
filksong lyrics collection to an archivist a couple of years ago so I
can't reference it myself. Any tips greatly appreciated! (Please respond
by email as I do not generally read this group.) Thanks!

'makin' wookies' was what lots of filkers called Fred Kuhn's "star whores" even though that telegraphed the punchline. If that is actually the song you were looking for.
