I admit up front that this is a very dense, verbal show. What the Firesign Theatre did with humor and imagination had a profound effect on my thinking and writing. What I wanted to do tonight was take what is a little known work by the group, their final Columbia lp, In the Next World You're on Your Own, and create a conceptual context for a lingering listen, using earlier materials to set the stage (and provide overlapping connections). That context is a form of psychedelia. But this trip goes beyond humor. It's social comment, American history, a future of Cops-like tv shows, insane game shows, a baseball game, the Academy Awards, and media terrorism. The phrase "Eat flaming death, fascist media pigs!" comes from here. Be part of the future, and listen closely.

With special thanks to Greg Bishop, Mark Dolnick, Rich Garibaldi, the Firesign itself, my live listeners, and to killradio and radio4all.net. The Vietnam War has been over for 40 years tonight. Comments hoped for. It's terrific to hear you laugh.
