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

John Tesh--the "E.T."?

Stan Freberg here. A lot of people have enjoyed John Tesh; both his music, and as a longtime host of "Entertainment Tonight." Now there seems to be some discussion as to whether or not he is an alien. That's right. More, when I come back. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg again. For a long time John Tesh has seemed to be everywhere at once: on TV, on "infomercials," in concerts promoting his ubiquitous music, which he composes and has recorded on countless albums. You either like John Tesh's music or you don't. I don't have any feelings one way or the other, you know.

But now a group has been formed that say John Tesh is an alien from outer space. An extra-terrestrial! The group calls itself "The Anti-Tesh Society," and has been picketing his concerts. They point out the way he looks...hmm...the speed with which he composes and plays the piano, and the fact that he makes his entrance at a concert by descending to the stage in an elevator, just like a U.F.O. landing.

When Tesh heard they were outside at a concert recently, he ran up to the group, and they all ran off in fright! Do they see something that we don't see? Makes you wonder. Now I can't look at John Tesh without wondering if any minute he's gonna peel back his face like those people in the movie "Cocoon."

If he makes a guest shot on "The X Files," well, we'll know for sure.
