NATIONAL LAMPOON RADIO HOUR, THE {REBROADCAST} (RADIO)

Summary

One in this series of hyperkinetic comedy programs comprised of dozens of fast paced sketches and song parodies. Skits include the following: Mr. Chatterbox shares his gossip report with the nation; a man named Mr. Space goes to a bank to apply for a loan, but the executive at the bank smokes some of Mr. Space's marijuana and forgets what the visit is all about; a public service announcement from the American Safety Institute warns citizens about dogs' foaming at the mouth; a segment called "The Puzzle Page" counts the mistakes made in one skit; someone who believes he has discovered a new talent in the music business calls a record company to persuade the president to sign the band; a parody interview with consumer advocate Ralph Nader concerns the ways in which the average consumer gets swindled when buying everyday products; and another person calls the record company with a new talent from Britain but cannot describe the band to the secretary handling the president's calls. Includes commercials.
