Volume 153 Have Yourself An Impeachy Christmas. This week our hero gets impeached.

Thanks this week for the songs from The Youngsters ("Christmas in Jail"), The Late Show ("The Oompa Loompa Song"), The Honeydrippers ("Impeach the President"), and Golden Earring ("Twilight Zone"). Clips and excerpts from Rod Serling; Rudy Giuliani; Burl Ives; Aidy Bryant, Kyle Mooney, Bowen Yang, Cecily Strong, Melissa Villaseñor, Beck Bennett, Heidi Gardner, Mikey Day, Chloe Fineman, Kenan Thompson, Ego Nwodim, Chris Redd, and Kate McKinnon on "Saturday Night Live;" Stephen Colbert; John Oliver; Jimmy Fallon; Jimmy Kimmel; Seth Meyers; Jimmy Kimmel; Jordan Klepper; Lindsey Graham; Jamie Raskin; and Ari Melber. An original radio theatre show each week, with most sounds culled from the previous week, about a fictional, theatrical presidency. Contradictions tell the story, with songs, skits, and clips from political news shows and late-night comedy routines. The definition of "radio theatre" is stretched here, with an updated Dickie Goodman and/or Richard Foreman-meets-mashup style sometimes, and a more straightforward take other weeks. Currently airing on 30 or 40 stations around the world, the network has ordered another 10 episodes, but with impeachment cancellation is possible at any moment. Anyone who would like to work on a production, or have their work air in this timeslot, should contact info@wgxc.org.
