Tower of Technobabble

We return to the thrilling days of yesteryear, when, during the world record attempt at Wonderfest, our scratchy throated cast of meat bags attempted to do an episode from the Lone Ranger radio show. Get ready for accents going berserk, the most awkward saddling scene ever, and the surprising revelation about where our hero got all that silver.

We conclude our talk with JR Southall on apocalyptic films that grabbed our attention, and then, at the end of all things, we discuss the future of the Tower of Technobabble.

It’s doomsday all day at the Tower as we begin a two-part series with our friend from across from what used to be the Atlantic Ocean JD Southall. We take a look at cinematic apocalypses (apocalypi?) and examine why we probably would envy the dead, because we hate camping.

We’re giving you our presentation of the Sam Spade radio classic “The Blood Money Caper,” performed by our trio of scratchy throated players from their world record attempt at Wonderfest last month.  All apologies to the hard workin’, hard drinkin’, hard lovin’ writers and actors from 1946 who originally brought this to the airwaves. For maximum effect, I’d recommend staying awake for 27 hours before listening - at that point, it’s gold.
