PETER SAGAL, HOST:

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thank you everyone. Great to see you. You know, in this modern age, we often rush through life, the next thrill, the next adventure, the next restaurant, the next brand new episode of a radio show.

KASELL: But sometimes it’s important to stop, take stock, maybe listen to some old radio shows, so you can learn to appreciate them.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Could not have put it better, Carl. That’s a beautiful sentiment/excuse to play reruns while we’re on vacation.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: By the way, what are you doing in your week off?

KASELL: Well, the usual, Peter, martial arts and making moonshine.

SAGAL: That’s great.

(LAUGHTER)
