Steve Post lets his antisocial impulses run wild as he contemplates a career change to one of crime. Overt, active crime as distinguished from the low-level dishonesty inherent in being a radio host. After you hear the story of his academic experiences, you will wonder why he didn’t go bad in his teens. Only two things deterred him: fear of authority and the lousy hours. He is joined by Mr. Shunlee Grange, a prominent anti-environmentalist, who turns blue at the mention of green or our “so-called environment.” Finally, Steve inducts Orlando “Cachaito” Lopez, the Buena Vista Social Club bassist, into The NO SHOW Musical Necropolis, the third of the original four members to be honored thus.
