Lonesome Cowboy Dave called in sick, so Stang called in Doktors: Dr. Philo Drummond (co-SubFounder of the Church, OverMan First Degree), and Rev. Bleepo Abernathy, radio professional and character actor. The show starts with one ancient song by each, and then it's another of those "two old guys talking" shows, except it's three old guys with Captain Beefheart instrumentals in the background. We had technical problems at first, about one third of which is included in this edit, but then settled on a merged-call system that worked (FaceTime Audio). So we'll know what to do next time... Meanwhile this might be one of those episodes that makes some listeners yearn for more reruns from the lively barrage shows of the '90s. For those who happen to be greedy for Church Secrets and Church history, however, this one is a treasure trove. Admittedly, it's not so much a Fountain of Youth as a Fountain of Age. (Hey, there's a TITLE!) As always the episode is framed by LeMur tracks, which are somewhat like raccoon footprints, but louder and more exotic.
