Donald Drumpf Theatre Vol. 209 White Riot (Audio)

Jan 14, 2021
Vol. 209 White Riot. This week our hero leads a charge on the Capitol from behind.

Thanks this week for the songs from The Clash ("White Riot"), R.E.M. ("Begin the Begin"), Randy Rainbow ("Sedition"), The Honeydrippers ("Impeach the President"), and Golden Earring ("Twilight Zone"). Clips and excerpts from Rod Serling; Rudy Giuliani; Cartman; Richard Nixon; Jimmy Kimmel; Robert Moore; Donald Trump, Jr.; Tyrion Lannister; Miracle Max; Stephen Colbert; Seth Meyers; Nicolle Wallace; Mike Pence; and Carter Glascock. 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 two more 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.
