Battle At Thunderblow - Airs April 1st

The Great Crepitation Contest of 1946 by Sidney S. Brown and Jules Lipton
Sometime in the 1940s a clandestine recording was produced, allegedly by Canadian Broadcast Corporation staff. The details are remarkably scarce and the stories of the now legendary recording's origin conflict and vary wildly. Despite the complete haze of its background, my guess is you'll find it hard not to thoroughly enjoy the seriously tongue-in-cheek radio play-by-play or rather blow-by-blow of the epic battle between the reigning champ, Lord Windesmear, and upcoming challenger, Paul Boomer narrated wonderfully by famous sportscaster S.S. Brown. Certainly one for the record books.
