I was fortunate enough to live in Los Angeles (for a year at broadcasting
school) just as these guys were ramping up. They (all four? Or maybe just
a couple of them) had a show on KPFK on late Saturday nights, something
like 10:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. I remember them doing some of the skits that
later showed up on Firesign's records. One of the golden days of radio!
