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.
