The Smithsonian and the naked employee in the 19th century. Jews Harp and echo chamber interlude Salute to Gene Davidson - prize winning artist who got third place for the yellow rope barrier he place around a piece of artwork. George and Bob in Radio Station start making fake weird music using a piano and echo chamber. George playing and Bob recording. After recording a series of pieces they passed them off as missing recordings from an Italian composer. They got many phone calls to the radio staion. They did this every night for 3 weeks when they receive a letter from a Cincinnati musical organization who wanted to honor the composer and bring him to America. The next night they had to claim the composer died right after WWII.
Radio stations can get quite boring - which reminds me this is WOR
