Special Segments: Spontoon Radio - It's Shot From Guns


THE place for lunch on Meeting Island in the Spontoon Archipelago is Luchow’s. A restaurant needs lots of clean napkins and table cloths, so Rosie sends dimbulb fox brothers, B'onss and K'nutt, out to do some laundry. B'onss sets up a washing machine powered by an airplane engine. And the usual wacky characters stop by on Rosie’s Place- like Nicholai Lopanearov, Rt. Hon. A. Cadbury Mouchoir, Cuthbert Calico and police Sargeant Brush.

As the furry animal characters the cast includes former KFAI programmers Andy Driscoll, Beryl Greenberg, Charles Brin, Ian Thompson, Mike Fischbein, and Amanda Balagur, with local actors Don Cosgrove, Tom Joyal and Jeni Warwick, recorded by Mike Stapp and Dixie Treichel. Original Music by the Imaginary Islands Quartet. A project of KFAI radio and the Great Northern Audio Theatre.

Special Segments: Star Trek: The Baby Boom Generation


A Live Shockwave production from Minion in 1988. It's a sort-of Star Trek episode loaded with older TV references. Utter silliness, written by Dave Romm, and part of a larger program called Colorized Radio.
