Holy Crowley 2 hour special

program date: 
Fri, 11/14/2014
Many of our late-night deejays have been accused of belonging to a cult led by Aleister Crowley. That's only half right. We're member of a cult, and this cult is led by a Crowley, however, it's not Aleister. Rather it’s his brother Carl. Carl Crowley. Carl is Aleister’s little-known brother, and that’s just the way he wants it.

We say and play what Carl Crowley tells us to say and play. It’s fortunate for you, the listener, that he has a good sense of humor. We'll be playing radio comedy and odd audio pieces that are good for a few laughs. I think you’ll enjoy it. And, if I were you, I'd enjoy it 57:38 minutes (23.09 MB)

Think:  The two groups of people most likely to spend their days and nights together in a state of mutual fear and mistrust?
The police and the homeless.  And the homeless very often have come off the rails.  Poverty does make a person crazy, both mentally and physically ill and more or less permanently teetering on the cusp of committing a crime.  Enter  DENNIS ROSENBAUM.  He’s  going to be visiting from time to time to the tune of $240 thousand dollars. 15:00 minutes (13.73 MB)
