Here at the radio station its contract negotiations season with the station management. Again, that's always interesting time now obvious gee. I'm not allowed to go into details, but negotiation is tricky when you're never allowed to glimpse what your negotiating with station management stays inside their office. At all times. Communicating with us through sealed envelopes that are spat out from under the door like a sunflower shell through teeth, then in To respond you just go shout at the closed door and hope that management hears Sometimes you can see movements through the frosted glass large shapes shifting around strange tendrils whipping through the air architectural. Speaking the
size of managements office does not physically makes sense, given the size of the building, but it's I D say really, as no one has ever seen: the actual office only translucence look I've. Probably said too much I can see down the hall that an envelope just came flying out. I pray It's not another hr retraining session in the Dark box. But what can I say? I'm a report: at heart. I can't not report, oh my let's go to the seven day, outlook your daily shades of the sky forecast Monday Turquoise

Is our home and who, still leave trash all over their home. Put it in the guy. Which can listeners you see any trash around pick, it up away. Do your part unless the trash is more with a small red flag. The council.
Has asked me to remind you that any litter marked with a red flag is not to be picked up or approached. Remember the slogan no flag goes the bag the flag run listeners. We are currently fielding numerous reports that books have stopped working. It seems that all over night veiled books have simply ceased functioning scientists are studying one of the broken books to see if they can understand just what is going on here. The exact problem is. Currently unclear thought Some of the words being used include sparks meet smell by and lethal gaps. For your own safety. Please do not attempt to open a book until we have more information on the nature and cause of these problems. The city
Council has released only a brief statement indicating that their stance on books has not changed and that, as always, they believe that books are dangerous and inadvisable and should not be kept. Private homes another warning for night veil residents Sources say that they used and discount sporting goods store on Flint Drive is a front for the world government. This is based on extensive study of the location and also because It has a black helicopter pad, on which black helicopters regularly depart and land fairly unusual for a used and discount sporting goods store, we sent our intern Chad, to try by a tennis racket and have not heard back from him for several weeks. This brings me to a related point to the parents of Chad, the

Is only a front for the share of secret police and so can be completely trusted. Larry Leroy out on the edge of town, reported that a creep fear, came in to night veil today he felt it First as a mild apprehension, then again going worry and, finally, a mortal panic. It passed him to the employees at the car lot, who crouched behind
our cars and cast fearful eyes at the empty sky. It did not happen old woman, Josie Presumable because of her angelic protection, but it and from there to the rest of the town. Until all were shivering in anticipation for a terrible thing. We could not yet see. I myself was frozen. Shore at any movement, would lead to death. That any word would be my last. Of course. That also could have been the contract negotiations with station management and the hideous envelope by just received also battling line disease. Meanwhile, the fear past first leaving Larry Leroy out on the edge of town and then the car lot where they went offering gently used cars at affordable prices, and finally, the rest of us who could go, Acta living with the knowledge that at
Given moment we will either live or die. No use guessing which it is not. Currently known where the creeping fear will go next, hopefully to desert Bluffs, Edwards serve them right, two Hawkeye listeners sent in reports that cargoes are curious? Scientific visitor was seen getting his beautiful, beautiful hair cut He was having his gorgeous hair shorn cut, cut short so very short from his perfectly shaped brilliant head listeners. Not one to gossip, even if it is a local celebrity, but please explain to me why Carlos would strip away decimate any part of his thick black hair, not to ignore the dignified, if premature touch of gray and the temples? What tricks
tourism, barber should agree to such depravity, who takes mere money or so listen joy in depriving our small community of such a simple but important act as luridly admiring Carlos is stunning cloth. Reports from who intrepid sources are that it will telly, the Barber Tele who likes sports and has posters of Cones Tele Barbara seems to be the one who betrayed our community telly the barber it is telling the barber at the corner of South West Fifth street and old musk road with the red and white spinning hole in the sign that says tallies. Telling is about five foot: nine. With a small moustache and a thick pot Delhi. He talks with an accent

S: ok, not too bad there either. I c o That gentlemen needs the slow it down. It is not a race, my friend, not a literal one anyway, that has been traffic and now for an editorial. I don't ask favours much dear listeners that you know. But I'm asking all of you now to conduct.
Writing campaign to station management, which was not East with my discussion of their physical attributes and behaviour and is now Turning to shut down my show or possibly my life for good the wording was kind of ambiguous, obviously we will not be able to deliver the letters directly to the management per se. As no one has ever opened their door, but we can show the content of the letters outside their office and we presume given and anatomy that includes ears. They will be able to hear what you have to say So if you like the show and you to hear more of it than we need Hear from you make it voice heard whatever it is, that lies and weight behind that darkened office door.
Oh I'm, sorry, do listeners we'll be back after this word from our sponsors. This segment has been brought to us by Big Rico's pizza listeners. We are proud to have big Rico such a sponsor of our show. You will not find a better pizza joint in all of night. They would then be regos just the other night I stopped by Big Regos. I was in the mood for a delicious pieces, lies and sense. Big Rico's was the only peace a place at night, fail that has not burned to the ground in an unsolved arson case. Man did, I mention is also the best pizza in town. I ordered a single Rico slice with fewer than two toppings and boy works. I satisfied the labor was scrumptious. Taste was also structures and it was warm the pizza slice. I have been told that even though hooded figures eat there, the weight staff look like they avert their hollow gazes. Quite a bit. Even the city council offers its ringing endorsement of Bee Rico's. All night veil citizens are mandated to eat at Big Regos once a week. Is a misdemeanor not to be Rico's pizza? No one does a slice like big Rico. Folks, no one.

Radio audience, I come to you from under my desk. I tracked: might microphone currently hiding in the feudal? Did you write letters should not do this in a more structured management submitted to us for the first time in my memory and is now building? I don't know exactly what management looks like as that is when I took cover under my desk, and I can only hope that they are not listening to what's going out right now, we're else I may have signalled my fate. I can hear only a kind of clicking step and think hissing sound, like releasing steam and in turn, went to see what management wanted and has not return.
