Masters of irony, parody, travesty, and sound effects, Firesign created radio dramas satirizing a nation unable to tell reality from the nonsense on TV--nonsense concocted by prostitute politicians and corporate greedheads.

The perfect program for the 2020 election campaigns!

Selections from The Firesign Theatre's 1970 classic, "Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me the Pliers." (Continued...)
The plot (such as it is): Flipping TV channels late at night, retired actor George Leroy Tirebiter finds dreck galore plus two old movies starring him, playing simultaneously on two different channels. These are "Parallel Hell" (a war movie) and "High School Madness" (featuring all-American teenagers Porgy and Mudhead). In one--or is it both?--of the movies, Tirebiter is running for office--either Dogkiller or People's Commissioner. (You decide!)

With a revised introduction by K.D. The Firesign Theatre material was originally broadcast on New World Notes in November 2012.

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "unisex bathroom") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
