It’s finally arrived. Tonight was the event two-and-a-half years in the making: The 50th episode of The Lowdown on radio. Tonight’s episode started with Steve’s failed plug for the presenting sponsor of the episode. The show really kicked off with a return to the wild world of politics with Tuesday Night Raw is CPAC. On this edition of Raw is CPAC, Stephen Harper calls out Barack Obama and you’ll never believe what happens next. It Came From YouTube was next with a boxing/heavy metal mashup. After the break is entertainment featuring Jackie’s single of the week and a look at the latest celebrity lawsuits. That’s followed up with the debut of Steve’s third album. Jackie immediately follows that with a special edition of The Worst of Music. The show wraps up with the boys kicking off their Road Trip To End Highway Profanity which goes well for everybody but Steve. As always with our April Fools’ episodes, it’s another instant classic. And, as an added bonus, these downloads are the “too controversial for radio” versions of the show. Yes, about two minutes had to be cut from our original submission to satisfy the censors.
On the Extra, the show starts with a little reminiscing about all the bad luck that’s befallen Steve. After Raw is CPAC, the boys talk about the Hart/McMahon match at WrestleMania XXVI. After the break, a new artist wins Steve’s WoM award for the week. More of Steve’s new album is revealed. In total, there’s 20 minutes more Lowdown action on this week’s edition of Lowdown Extra. As usual, that comes to you uncut and uncensored.
