Into the Time Warp #1 – Doomsday Picnic (3/31/18)

1:22:29 – Gildy and Leila confront their mortality in two episodes of The Great Gildersleeve from 1946. Dave in Kentucky provides background and commentary, and explains why these episodes are still relevant to our lives today.

Theme song, 1st verse: “Man, I’m sick of this bathtub gin! Put the 21st Amendment in! I made a quantum leap into a time warp! Get my Congressman on the phone! I’m tired of subsidizing Al Capone! I made a quantum leap into a time warp! While we’ve been caught in this Prohibition, the Reds are plotting some new sedition. Hitler’s takin’ over in Berlin, I’m a-drinkin’ this bathtub gin, and I’m a-doin’ that rag, doin’ that Time Warp Rag!”

  1. Dave,

    I enjoyed this great show while flying home from St. Louis. Playing Tetris while listening to this, a great time was had.
