Dec. 7, 2023, midnight
For this week’s archive radio show we examine that period wherein after a brief hiatus from the airwaves with the Thunderbolt’s fallout at KOWA, the Thunderbolt was once again on the air in Olympia! (Albeit on an unlicensed station — and it only played if someone got around to playing it…). Next, Ken Nordine introduced the Thunderbolt crew before we differentiated the biggest difference between black people and white people. We exposed evil plots to turn us all into Zuckers, we sang an ode to the mothers of our world, and we revealed a face of Muammar Qaddafi that is probably very unfamiliar to you.

For the feature piece we exposed government sterilization programs that were very popular back in the day.

Cringeworthy anecdotes of pusillanimous perfidy mixed with lame metaphors. Listen at your own risk.
This is a production of Dancing Angel Media. You are free to rebroadcast as long as you are a non-profit — just please let us know if you do so.
