Synopsis:

Ira goes beat like the hipsters of old with a smooth jazz set. Then he digs out a pertinent and reflective Jaw Jack from four years ago originally aired on November 18th 2016. He examines Donald Trump’s presidential victory. In light of Trump’s current troubles, it’s prophetic. For comedy Robin Williams talks about his alcohol addiction. How funny is it really? Then Ira takes a trip in the time machine for a brief visit to the pop charts of 1971. Lastly, in the spirit of Halloween he goes back to the days of old time radio plays with Arch Obler’s Lights Out.
