Dear Friend and Listener:
April Fool’s Day is one of the high holy days of my year. If you’re a somewhat regular Planet Waves reader, you may be familiar with our annual pranks (we’ll soon be publishing a full archive, which we’ll email out and post to our websites).
This year I tried something new: a sketch comedy radio program, which we broadcast live Sunday night on Radio Kingston, the new home of our program. You can listen to the full program here.
I don’t get into heavy issues. Really, this is entertainment, satire and parody. We start with the Russians taking over the program, and I give the recipe for chicken Kiev. There’s a traffic helicopter report in a rural community at 11 pm. I did two parody advertisements for local businesses, including the Typewriter Cafe.
There’s an interview with an Etruscan-American activist, along with an actual original song about the Etruscan plight. We have another interview, this time Hank Hansen, a lawnmower expert, who shares his many experiences with us.
We continue to be sponsored by your contributions to our nonprofit company that produces the program, Chiron Return, Inc. Please become a monthly member — it makes all the difference. Even a dollar a month is helpful.
