In the Spring of 1971, The Firesign Theatre recorded their 4th Album "I Think We're All Bozos On This Bus". Burnt out after 4 years of non stop radio shows, recording, writing, and touring. To satisfy demand, The foursome agreed to trawl through the tapes of their KPFK Radio series "Dear Friends" 21 broadcasts from September 1970 to February 1971, The highlights were issued in February 1972 as "Dear Friends". In the Fall of 1971, The Firesign Theatre agreed to produce 12 episodes of a new radio series called "Let's Eat"(named after an abandoned Movie Project). You can hear in the excerpts broadcast tonight the Firesign Theatre revisiting old characters (Mark Time) and working up characters and story lines that would find fruition in later album projects. After being passed around on aircheck tapes for years, The Radio era 1970-2 was collected in the Book and DVD "Duke Of Madness Motors" seeland records 2010.
