Variety Music has received some inspirational press releases these days, but the one we got on Monday afternoon about Pee-Wee Herman receiving a radio show on KCRW is definitely a hall of fame.
The short version is that legendary screen star Pee-Wee Herman will launch a radio show on KCRW, the popular national public radio station based in Santa Monica, Calif., And will be joined by her pals Chairry, Magic Screen and Miss Yvonne. . A representative of the station tells Variety that for now, this will only be one show on November 26 at 6 p.m. PT (and available on demand for a week after airing), but who knows?
As for the long version, which was rendered in typewriter font on stationary KCRW, eyes below:
PEE-WEE HERMAN (ME !!)
GET A RADIO SHOW ON KCRW!
Milky Way, planet Earth, next to the Pacific Ocean i.e. Santa Monica, CA (November 15, 2021) – Dear most esteemed journalists, it’s Pee-wee Herman here and I’m going to be a DJ in a new radio show airing on KCRW! I am so excited this is my very first! I mailed them a letter, which got lost (apparently!), Then tagged them on twitter and THEN they didn’t believe it was me until my biggest, best, most amazing fans call and call and block their phone lines (hey hey)! Thank you to the fans because they will get me donuts and leave me the keys to the studio while they are on vacation!
Join me and my friends Chairry, Magic Screen, Miss Yvonne and a few surprise special guests (TIP: they’re super famous!), As we listen to some of the best music ever recorded!
This is all happening Friday, November 26 at 6:00 PM PST, so you better get out your transistor radio and listen to my amazing voice!
