It's all about Columbus. A fake news segment about old Chris, Harry's written a report on the old explorer. Jim Kweskin's Jug band sings a titular song and The Foremen sing one of the greatest protest songs of all time "Send 'em back". THAT one I highly recommend you tuning in for.
Steve and Harry have a hat contest and oh what a contest it is. Hats with particle accelerators, hats that give you a peek into the 7th dimension, hats that contain miniature universes. The hats get more and more complex as the podcast wears on.
And Harry sings a goofy song "The Day that Willie Died" and they also play an old recording of "Barnacle Bill the Sailor"
In order to compete with Amazon and Walmart, Steve and Harry have to be well stocked. And they are! Anything you want, they got...and we mean anything. Square balloons, nails as big as a tree, a rocket to send your kid to the moon when he's not behaving...and a doohicky, a doodad, a thingamajig and dingusmadoodle.
And Steve sings an old song from the 20's with a modern update on the lyrics "Then I'd be Satisfied with Life".
Harry brings in a "What if" machine. In other words, what would the world be like if, for instance, Harry had gone with another ventriloquist, or if the dinosaurs hadn't become extinct. Through state-of-the-art technology, complex computer algorithms and a goofy imagination, we find out! Also the Rude Girls do a great song called "We don't need the men" and Harry and Steve sing the old Benny Bell song "Shaving Cream".
Harry brings in a potion that Steve stupidly drinks. What do you think happens? He turns into Mr. Hyde of course.
Also the great Robin and Linda Williams are Steve's guests singing
"Rubber Blubber Whale".
And Harry sings how he made his millions. As usual hilarity ensues...
For those of you who like one of those Dadaesque episodes, you might like this. Harry's hands are in love and he has to keep them separate to observe decorum. I mean you know, they either get married or they have to stay separated. That's why one of them has a glove on.
Also Robin and Linda Williams are guests. They were regulars on Prairie Home Companion.
