THE FINAL BROADCAST
LOW POWER TO THE PEOPLE
August 14, 2013 10:00pm
Low power. Running on fumes. 100,000 milliwatts or less. Almost out of gas. Living on borrowed time. Sleepy.

The Council of Elders at Radio Valencia have decreed that we must go low. That's like trying to be the tallest dwarf (among a dwarrow of dwarves). Getting last place in a warthog beauty contest. Being the soberest Mormon. Going for the brass. Yup, everything is coming up milkweed.

On tonight's FINAL BROADCAST of NOSE HAIR LINT GLAND, Karen Carpenter, Bob-Marc, and Sherilyn Connelly, the laziest pirates in unlicensed community radio, will explore what it means for the power to be low. Or they may not. They're kinda tired, it's always dark in the studio, and the battery in Karen's laptop keeps dying.

NOSE HAIR LINT GLAND: The first step to failure is trying.
