FRIDAY AFTERNOON SHOW - NOVEMBER 1, 1985

Printer-friendly version

It's another Friday afternoon show featuring the people of Stoneyhaven, this one from November 1, 1985. In this edition, the parallels between Halloween and Election Day were explored, focusing on the trick or treating escapades of one kid along with a particularly ugly election campaign season in the fictitious community. (The latter was probably inspired by that year's Suffolk County Legislator race between Steve Englebright and Helen Lefkowitz.)

One of my housemates bursts in later in the show and I make an attempt to find the phone number of the Coca Cola company in Madrid, causing a bit of confusion. The show had been preempted two weeks earlier, due to the airing of "Shadow Over Long Island" (available in our archives) and there was no news from Stoneyhaven the previous week due to my being in a strictly music mood.
