Beginning on the 4th of July and running until New Year’s Eve 2002, The Firesign Theatre returned to their natural home, radio. Commenting, in its uniquely surreal audio comedy style, on property, propriety, surety, security, and the state of the States for National Public Radio’s flagship news program, All Things Considered, The Firesign Theatre reminded old fans (and taught new listeners) of the dynamic power of audio to entertain, inspire, and intrigue the soul. And, they made us laugh.
Here are all 28 of their poetically provocative pieces (including the Thanksgiving Pageant that radio listeners never got to hear), gathered together and guaranteed to produce repeated guffaws. From the Drums of War to New Year’s Cheers, it’s Firesign…All Firesign…Like you’ve known them, and like you’ve never known them. This is not nostalgia. This is Now, baby! This is All Things Firesign.
