Radio Wowsville 9/26/10: The Return of the Gnomes

In a desperate attempt to market our new 2010-11 slogan ("Radio Wowsville: We've Been Doin' This Crap For Years"TM), the second half of this broadcast was a rebroadcast of the first half of the classic (OK, well-regarded) Nov. 12, 2006 Radio Wowsville Broadcast called "Clearing a Path For the Gnomes."

The episode was co-hosted by Tyler "Grandpa Coles" Magill, and was favorably-reviewed by the Culpeper Curried-Crumpet at the time: "If you like gnomes, try this one."

OK, OK, beyond the new slogan, why would we re-run a sizable chunk of this nearly four-year-old broadcast? You might ask that. Well, one reason is that it's a rare one (the other reason is that it features gnomes). The broadcast archive of Wowsville Enterprises was believed to have "lost" it at the beach house a few seasons ago. Thankfully The "Gnomes" episode was recently found in the hall closet underneath a pile of Country Music Roundups and some jerky wrappers. Good going, search team!
