Satiric radio commentary for the 90s from the man who drained Lake Michigan and filled it with hot chocolate!!!

Hate The Weather? Don't Blame Al!

Stan Freberg here. All the quirky weather patterns lately have been blamed on a name I hardly dare mention, since I'm interviewing a man who says, "Why blame him?" [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here. With me in the studio today is Mr. ...uh, your name again, sir?

AL: Al Nino.

STAN: Al...Nino?

AL: Yes! And I'm sick of being blamed for all these floods, tornadoes...

STAN: No, no, we've been blaming them on EL Nino...

AL: That's what I say! Everybody says, "Ooooh, Al Nino! We were flooded out of our house by Al Nino! What have I done?

STAN: Uh, sir...

AL: Falsely accused, I tell ya!

STAN: You've got it wrong, Al. The weather people are blaming El Nino, not Al Nino.

AL (After brief pause): Are you sure of that?

STAN: Positive.

AL (Sheepishly clears his throat): That's sort of...embarrassing...

STAN: Yes, well, we're out of time...

AL: Sorry!

STAN: That's all right. This has been another (Pompous booming voice) "Ear-Witness News" report, from Stan Freberg here.
