SINPO=44433

229- Dr. Benway (over mellow instrumental music) talking about climbing out onto his apartment roof, three stories up, after listening to some Black Flag for motivation, to string his dipole antenna. Hooked it up to the HT-40, and the project was a complete success.
232- OM audio clip about breeding and eating dogs, over music.
233- Music continues ("Baby Sleep Music"), then with OM audio clip about media and questioning authority. "Don't let them see us...Don't them what you're doing" OM repeating several times. Then YL asking Dr. Benway what you're doing, and he replies, "I'll be back in just a minute," and music continues. More audio clips over music.
236- Dr. Benway IDs, "broadcasting from the middle of nowhere."
237- "seArch" by Zero One.
237- OM audio clip, "I'm the only voice you'll hear..."
238- Dr. Benway talking about traveling to the Solomon Islands.
