Many thanks to Christine “Moose” McGlade for guesting on this episode! You Can’t Do That On Television was a huge influence on our comedy aesthetic, and Christine was a huge part of why that show worked. Working with Christine and witnessing her top-notch timing and characterization is a complete thrill, and a dream come true — we hope she’ll come back to the Hadron Bunker soon!

Christine “Moose” McGlade is our special guest!

Christine McGlade as Moose on “You Can’t Do That On Television”. Moose is one of Television’s all-time greatest voices of reason.

Rick Canavan hosts The Comedy Studio in Harvard Sq. Cambridge every Friday night. He claims his nickname was also “Moose”.

You Can Do It!

A couple of weeks ago, we asked our facebook friends to spread the word about our page over there — and you did it! To say “thank you”, here’s the 80’s motivational track that appeared in Episode 8 “HeadHatz and Horror Hosts”!

“You Can Do It!” by Freeze Frame Hi-Five and The Motivation Proclamation was written and performed by our own Sir Richard Wentworth, with amazing sax magic from Kelly Roberge.

Enjoy! Ringtone it like Heather Montana! Share it with yer friends!

You did it!
