HISTORIAN

In the early 1940's, during the second great war, a small Nebraskan radio station took it upon itself to make the single greatest adventure program imaginable.

The outcome, however, is regarded as historically the worst thing ever broadcast over the airwaves, second only to that time little Pedro Cantina got a hold of his father's ham radio and tried to sing the hits of Leonard Cohen. Boy, did that kid stink... but I digress.

Completely unaware of the show's pure comedic value, the makers of the weekly Skybird radio program continued for thirty-eight years, until the tragic fire.

What you are about to hear is quite possibly a recently discovered recording maybe found in someone's attic. We present this program so that others may never make the same mistake as these poor misguided individuals. After all, those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.

(beat)

Enjoy... or not. Whatever. We don't care.
