Is This Funny?

August 26, 2004
Will Ryle, Mr. Krebbs, Don

Ronald Redball returns again to test the boundaries of comedy with our haplessly stoned audience. A skeptical Lud Hunchly hosts this exploration of the outer edges of comedy, what makes it funny, and when. Ronald improvises in the most precarious ways as Lud tries to get him to remember his name. The Dave Emory impersonation comes under dispute even as callers demand more of him, and Ronald once again fails to date a caller. Prepare to be laughed up one side and down the other.

Sequel: How Radio Isn’t Done Part 3: Still Not Funny

Coming Down

August 19, 2004

A companion sequel to Artificial Paradise, this music-laden show is the other side of last weeks coin – the inevitable struggle to achieve the state of post altered consciousness. Some of the same drugs are used up, and some new ones appear, as euphoria sinks into a whole lot of trouble getting off this stuff.

Prequel: Artificial Paradise

Artificial Paradise

August 12, 2004
Stephan Ronan, Don

Ray the druggist and Dr. Sigmund Void join Dr. Oslow Norway, Chief of Psychedelic Psychiatry for UMN, in a vast display of sounds and music relating to all drug use in America, yesterday and today, legal and illegal, but mostly illegal. The extremely over-medicated mood of contemporary America should not bat an eye at this honest, somewhat celebratory ode to altered consciousness and all the chemicals that do it. This show might be called either counter public affairs programming or the truth.
