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)

The school board stated that all books and materials in the classroom should promote citizenship, patriotism, essentials and benefits of the free enterprise system, respect for authority and respect for individual rights.
