Volume 160 Here Comes The Sun King. This week our hero gets the crown.

Thanks this week for the songs from The Beatles ("Here Comes the Sun"), Marvin Gaye ("Can I Get a Witness"), MC Hammer ("Can't Touch This"), Three Dog Night ("One"), Dusty Springfield ("Wishin' and Hopin'"), and Golden Earring ("Twilight Zone"). Clips and excerpts from Rod Serling; Rudy Giuliani; Trevor Noah; Colin Jost; Triumph the Insult Comic Dog; John Roberts; Martin Luther King, Jr.; Padmé Amidala; Linda Murkowski; Susan Collins; Mitt Romney; Ted Cruz; Lindsey Graham; Rand Paul; Marco Rubio; Seth Meyers; Jason Crow; Chris Hayes; Nancy Pelosi; Stephen Colbert; Mazie Hirono; Adam Schiff; Sonny Wortzik; Alan Dershowitz; Sean Hannity; Lamar Alexander; Chuck Todd; Rachel Maddow; Jordan Klepper; and Susan Collins. 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.
