"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: "The Lonesome Loser." Have you heard about the guy running for president again? Opening theme includes clips from The Conet Project; "Saturday Night Live," "The Simpsons," Paul Harvey; "Citizen Kane;" 1010 WINS; Bill Cosby; and Larys Strong from "House of the Dragon." Thanks for the songs from Husker Du ("Turn On The News"), Monty Python ("I Bet They Won't Play This Song On The Radio"), Stiff Little Fingers ("You Can't Say Crap On the Radio"), The Ex-Cat Heads ("Anti-Song"), The Mountain Goats ("Anti-Music Song"), and Loretta Lynn ("I Can't Say It On the Radio").
