Tell Them NAPA Sent You

(14:51)
Also part of the "Three Wizard Tales" set at
Audible.com.
These days it's always a hassle when your car breaks down and you have to go looking for that elusive replacement part. It is especially tough when no one makes that part any more and you have to have it specially made - by dwarves. And installed by wizards.

We've always wondered what would happen if two of our favorite worlds were to collide. When Star Wars veteran and Dr. Who alumni, the late
Michael Sheard, joined David Ossman of the Firesign Theatre (and the voice of Mark Time himself) on stage--we found out. The Universe Got Funnier. That's valuable information.

Performed live at Convergence 2003.

"The second piece, Tell Them Napa Sent You, another comedy this time of future vehicular recalls. Think Car Talk's humor compressed into fourteen minutes. High on the jokes, without the distraction of any useful information. It's a Homeresque Odyssey to find the long lost parts for our hero's antique 2001 hatchback. Dozens of quirky characters. Well recorded, professional FX, all the more delightful for the live audience that seems to be with the actors at every utterance and sway."
Bill Palladino, former KFAI station manager.
