That shook a lot of people up. Some drove hundreds of miles away before they found out it was a radio show. They were ready to lynch Orson Welles.

Something to do in your spare time... Take the screws out, take the piping apart, flatten out any burrs left by the screws, tape it back together. Sleep well knowing you're much less likely to have blockage...

Just like in waste pipe runs avoid 90 elbows when practical, use 45 transitions made out of the 90 helps as well.
