…..and today you'll be able to see our actors, live, on our website, www.prairiehome.org, because today, for the first time ever we have streaming video of our show going out over the Internet, so if you went there right now you'd be able to see Tom Keith (TK FOOTSTEPS, SQUISH, CRY OF ALARM, FALL) fall on that banana peel, and now here's Sue Scott carrying a long wooden plank----

SS: Where do you want this? Where's Tim Russell?

GK: Right behind you. Now Sue is turning clockwise and (KONK, TK PAIN) the plank hits Tom in the back of the head----

SS: What's wrong?

GK: Now she's turning back counter-clockwise and (KONK, TR PAIN) and the plank hits Tim right in the kisser and he's getting out the seltzer bottle! Look out! (SELTZER BLAST) And now Tom Keith has a cream pie (TK CHUCKLE) and he throws at Sue and she ducks and (SPLAT, TR REACTION). Having quite a wild time here at the radio show. Go to our website if you want to see it in streaming video………
