The Curated Catastrophe - Fake Casey Kasem and the Pre-Rock Era
Malderor finds a random mix-tape (a literal cassette tape) compiled by the sadly departed co-singer of rocksteady greats Hepcat, Greg Lee. It's a bunch of cool tunes from the pre-rock era, which confuses Shey From The Bay slightly, until she got an AI version of Casey Kasem to explain the nuances of the pre-rock era for her and the listeners. Whatever, this episode is weird as hell, focusing on music from before some dude named Elvis Presley hit it big, while also leaning heavily on Artificial Intelligence to explain it all. So, um, give it a download. It totally worked, give or take some jiggling-of-the-wires.
