Hitler -- the Funny Uncle! It turns out that Hitler was really just a fun lovin', happy-go-lucky guy that enjoyed his Mickey Mouse cartoons. 2:57

I'm Singin' This Song and I'm Gonna Fall Down This is a nice little ditty that didn't quite make the cut for Whistle Stop -- Mischke's music CD that was released late last year. 1:05

Bottom of the Hour Basement News with Bergie! In this segment, Mischke briefly introduces Bob Berglund and then the audience is treated to the best newscast that has ever aired from the studios of AM 1500. 3:03

Chicken Fat Keeping with the sadistic theme of this particular update -- it just wouldn't be complete without one of the strangest, most sadistic songs ever written.  It's a staple of the broadcast and I certainly remember it from my elementary school days. 5:44

Hair Dryers Can Be Dangerous The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has come out with a few safety rules that we should all carefully consider. 1:55

The U.S. Government is Against Terrorism Tommy reads about how The House gave overwhelming approval to an anti-terrorism bill. He figures that makes it "official" that the U.S. is actually against terrorism--much to his relief. 2:54

You REALLY Better go with Homestead... Tommy makes the ultimate argument for going with Homestead Mortgage. This is an especially interesting ad because it is one of the few times where Mischke actually cracks himself up and loses it towards the end of the commercial. 3:14

Coffee at Noon This is just a classic call with Undertaker Fred where everything is discussed--from the gestation period of squirrels to the importance of making corpses look better. 10:44

Choking on Live Fish This was just some darn odd commentary from Mischke--so odd that I felt it had to be posted. 0:47

Phone a Fascist Tom gets a letter from a fascist saying he'd like to be on the air, so, naturally--Tommy phoned the fascist. What followed was an interesting conversation with a man who almost became the President of the United States of America. 17:09

Joke Time with Tommy A rarity on the Mischke Broadcast -- Tommy tells a joke. 1:44

Suggestions for the News A young man calls in to give some suggestions on how to liven up the news. By the way, did I mention that the caller was roughly six foot one? 1:42

Less Niagara, More Viagra A lady writes in to Dear Abby with a little problem. She's got a great boyfriend, everything is going just great, she really loves him, things couldn't be better--buuutttt... 3:24

Paul Harvey's Bong Hello Americans! This is Paul Harvey. 1:18

Help a Hussy Families in Italy are asked to adopt a prostitute to help rid the streets of "working" girls. Oddly enough, the men in these families had a soft spot for the troubled girls and the program turned out to be wildly successful. 1:46

Radio Battlefield AM 1500 is known for being a political battlefield, but on this particular evening, Tommy turned the station into a literal radio battlefield. 2:49

Mischke with Babs and the Boys It was about six years ago when Mischke had his first major battle with depression and was knocked off the air for a month or two. At the time of this recording, Mischke wasn't even yet aware that he had depression--he was still chasing after phantom physical ailments. Anyway, Tommy had been absent for a couple of months and he made an appearance on KSTP's morning show to announce that he would finally be back on the air. 1:10

Behind the Scenes This segment gives a brief look at what went on during breaks for the Mischke Interview. Actually, all of the interview is uncut--the only things that were edited out were when we stopped and started to switch recording CD's. During these breaks, Boomer would check audio levels and switch CD's, while Tom and I talked. Actually, I mainly sat there while Mischke sang songs, mused over historical facts, stole food, and made sarcastic remarks about the whole ordeal. 1:10

This is Dave This sound byte provides a few clues as to why Mischke doesn't receive too many phone calls during some broadcasts. 0:28

A Young Corpse for the Young Funeral Home Mischke's got a fairly young dead guy on his hands -- so he decides it might be for the best if he gives a call to the Young Funeral Home. 6:39

Tommy Gets Even A poor fella makes the mistake of hanging up on Tommy and ends up regretting it for the rest of his life. 1:24

Pauly Pauly is a 35 year old man who enjoys his alcohol and lives at home with Mom. Mischke has tried to help him out in the past and has even gone so far as to try and sponsor him for AA Meetings. Unfortunately, nothing has worked so far and Pauly continues to call in to the broadcast in an intoxicated state. During this particular call, Mischke doesn't pull any punches. He mercilessly shines a light into the current state of Pauly's life. The conversation sounds almost cruel, but with this little background of their history, it might help you understand where Mischke is coming from. 4:19

Mortuary Bob Mortuary Bob was a regular caller in the very, very early days of the Mischke Broadcast. In fact, he might have been the first regular, as he preceded even Undertaker Fred. I thought this clip deserved to be preserved as Mortuary Bob finally calls in to the Broadcast after a nine year hiatus. 7:53

Gas Leak During some severe thunderstorms in the Twin Cities, a couple suddenly finds themselves with a gas leak just outside their home. Tom does his best to try and allay their fears. 0:53

Where's Osama? ABC News reports on the hunt for Osama Bin Laden while Tommy provides a running commentary in the background. 1:12

John Jacob Jingleheimer Height John attempts to present the news, but has a difficult time since Mischke just learned that John's middle name is Jacob. 2:03

Something Peculiar Tonya calls in with some news of some very peculiar happenings. The whole thing worries Tommy, so he gives Tonya some sound advice. 2:27

God the Terrorist Forget Osama -- be on the lookout for... God! 3:51

Little Lukey Mischke and Lukey are having their usual Friday evening conversation -- when they are suddenly interrupted by a call from the Psych Ward. 18:02

The Mischke Broadcast Isn't for Kids Mischke runs an adult program that isn't meant for kids. More people need to appreciate that fact. 4:46

Gotta Buy Drugs Yet another reason why you might need to refinance with Homestead Mortgage. 0:57

Elian Gonzalez For quite awhile back in 1999, all the news you heard every day and all day seemed to be about one thing and one thing only -- Elian Gonzalez. This held true for many months and it wasn't long before Mischke had had enough. 2:02

I'll Hold Mischke is talking with the operator about some very pressing issues and is willing to do whatever it takes to speak with a supervisor. 6:14

Customer Robs Bank Some bank tellers are faced with the awkward predicament of being robbed by one of their regular customers.3:17

Napping While Driving One in five drivers admits to "napping" while behind the wheel. Tommy is only surprised that there aren't more people napping while driving. Americans are a hard working bunch that could use a little shut-eye wherever they can get it. 4:34

I'm an Ugly Disabled Guy Who Can't Get a Date Larry calls in to complain about a commercial that Mischke had recorded a few days earlier. Apparently, Mischke had used the name Larry in a derogatory fashion -- and our guy Larry is none too happy about it. 6:28

I'm an Ugly Disabled Guy Who Causes Trouble The very next day, Larry calls in again because he feels his complaint isn't being taken seriously enough. Even though Mischke had promised to fix the situation, Larry felt the need to directly call Mischke's boss -- the head of the whole station -- Stanley Hubbard. 6:09

Spillage A talk show host's worst nightmare -- pop spilled all over the console. 0:49

Mr. Excitement George from Crookston calls in -- the most even-keeled guy on the planet. 5:29

Man O.K. After Being Run Over By Train A man is run over by a giant locomotive -- but oddly enough -- he ends up with only a few "minor" injuries and is really none the worse for the wear. 2:23

Americans Are in Excellent Health Despite Americans' bad habits of overeating, smoking, drinking and never exercising -- most believe themselves to be in excellent health. 3:23

Well, I Helped Take Down Grenada The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has been hassling our old friend Joe, so Mischke advises him on what to to say the next time he finds himself in trouble. 7:36

Coke -- The Drink You Eat Coca-Cola has been around for a long time and Tommy takes a look at some of the odd slogans they've come up with over the past hundred years. 6:56

Could You Get the Other Guy Please? During this particular call, Mischke is never quite sure just who he wants to talk to. 2:08

Wrestling with the News During this news break, John Height literally wrestles with the news. 0:37

Steppin' on the Head Technique Wisconsin police are reviewing some questionable tactics that their officers tend to use while apprehending criminals. 1:37

Depressed Again It looks like Tommy is seriously ill and it'll be nothing but repeats until December. 0:28

The Beaver Nancy Fox and Mischke reminisce about the golden era of television. 3:50

Bullet to the Head A poor fellow find himself with a bullet in the head and -- as you might guess -- things only get worse from there. 2:07

The Mighty Midway Mischke and a caller reminisce about the Minnesota State Fair's Midway of old. These days, it is a wholesome place where kids can catch a ride and the whole family can feast on corn dogs, cotton candy and other fair fare. But in the not so distant past, a walk down the Mighty Midway was an odyssey into the bizarre, twisted and seamy side of life. 3:50

Special Note: If anyone out there has some recordings of the show that Tom Mischke and Don Vogel used to put out together, I would love to grab a copy if at all possible I was a big fan of The Afternoon Saloon and never got the chance to hear Tommy and Don working together I think that must have been an incredible show Just click on this webmaster link to send me an e-mail.

Or, if you'd rather just talk to Mischke about some of the sound bytes above, or about weather in Buckman, Minnesota, or about how grass makes a different sound when you walk on it at varying temperatures, or just about anything else--you can click on the T.D. Mischke link to send him an e-mail.
