RadioLand Time! In this week's edition we head across the universe . . . 89.9 fm public radio

Much of the music and background sound on the show this week is by Raymond Scott who is famous for writing songs that appeared in a ton of Warner Brothers cartoons. This includes the tune Powerhouse, which is probably his most famous. Later in his career, he worked with computers to make some of the first purely electronic generated recordings. It is a bit of a science experiment, but enjoy the difference.
