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, curety, security and the state of the States for National
Public Radio's flagship news program "All Things Considered," The
Firesign Theatre reminded old fans 9and 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
high-timely, peotically provocative pieces (including the Thanksgiving
Pageant that radio listeners never got to hear), gathered on one CD
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.

"All Things Considered" Editor, Art Silverman.
