Transmission / Help! (tease)
(BC at 17:15: Yeah. And then all the UFOs came, just like in The X-Files. And they colonized the earth and they said there is no more rock and it was the end and it was sad. Heh, but it was probably for the best. So we leave you at the end of the story where the earth is taken over by aliens and of course, they’re controlling the radio transmissions. There’s no longer any free airwaves and we’re all forced to listen to Celine Dion for the rest of our lives. That’s right. You’ll all be forced to listen to Celine Dion for the rest of your lives. Bye bye.)
(BC at 20:47: (French accent) God bless you, Paree, god bless you. Bonsoir! Bonsoir! ... Je t'aime Paree, je t'aime Paree!)
> Summertime (tease - Mike solo)
