Donald Drumpf Theatre Vol. 207 Martial Law (Audio)

Dec 31, 2020
Produced by Tom Roe.
Vol. 207 Martial Law. This week our hero wants to overturn the will of the American people.

Thanks this week for the songs from The Replacements ("Go"), Lou Reed ("Martial Law"), Lynn Anderson ("I Never Promised You a Rose Garden"), and Golden Earring ("Twilight Zone"). Clips and excerpts from Rod Serling; Rudy Giuliani; Cartman; Richard Nixon; J.L. Cauvin; Seth Meyers; Kasie Hunt; Ayman Mohyeldin; Michael Flynn; Rachel Maddow; Stephen Colbert; Brianna Keilar; and Shepard Smith. 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 four or five episodes. Then a new show, "Turn on the News," takes its place, in the same time slot, with a similar sound and approach, though about a fictional radio network.
