The 4th of July

July, 1986

This surviving example from the early days of receptacle programming has patriotic callers of interesting persuasions competing for holiday attention. A live audio mix of American cultural types pressed together along with the fervent patriotism sustaining them. From the Credibility Gap’s Nixon to Jonathan Winter’s wealthy industrialist, and that subversive Rock & Roll everywhere. A theatrical discussion of recent American industrial history, the Rev. Pirkle preaching, Nazi expatriot radio propaganda, the taped ghost of Brian Jones, the Ant Farm’s Kennedy at Media Burn, General Cavendish, Ford running against Reagan, and the Car Wheel Of Fortune. There are flags of all stripes marching on under richly choreographed fireworks. See how they wave. See how we wave.

2 hours 49 minutes.

The J Brigade

July, 1986

Pastor Dick rides the roller coaster of irreverent and satanic callers as he attempts another program on faith alone. Christian news, Christian weather, and Christian music from the J Brigade. The Bible Quiz, Big Brotherhood Companions, Mormons exposed, an inspirational song for children almost sung by Ralph Vivian Lust, stories for young people, and the Family Hour. The Weatherman is in an unusually bad mood and quits the group.
