"Turn On The News" is the weekly newscast from the fictional Radio Network, with parody radio coverage of the radio and its headlines. Now with computerized news readers, and fewer meddling reporters, plus aggregated reporting, and automated music. Tune in "Turn On The News" each week for the latest news, radio art, and more from our robot reporters, making sure you hear both sides -- good and evil -- every time you "Turn On The News."

This week: "Rush, Ted, and Andy" This week Rush slows, Ted cruises, and Andy miscounts. Songs from Husker Du ("Turn On The News"), Negativland ("Fast Talk"), and Smokey Robinson ("Cruisin'").
