Dr. Keith Vester: Good evening, and welcome to Hudson Valley Community Circuit. I’m Dr. Keith Vester. Today, we have with us some people from the region who claim they are suffering a serious erosion in their business since the attack on our country. Hello. [ everyone says hello ] So, what town in the valley are you all from?

Al Kyda: Mt. Arab.

Dr. Keith Vester: [ pause ] Alright. And who are you, sir?

Al Gezzera: Al.

Dr. Keith Vester: Al..?

Al Gezzera: My name is Al Gezzera. I’m President of Al Gezzera Dodge-Plymouth Misubishi.

Dr. Keith Vester: You’re an auto dealer?

Al Gezzera: Not after 2 AM tomorrow morning. When the country receiver repossesses my stock of cars.

Dr. Keith Vester: Out of business. You haven’t sold a car all month. And, you folks?

Sheila Kyda: Sheila and Al Kyda.

Al Kyda: Kyda. I’m actually third-generation Czech-American.

Dr. Keith Vester: So, Sheila and Al Kyda. And you do business as?

Sheila Kyda: The Kyda Trading Network.

Dr. Keith Vester: And you’re having trouble selling..?

Al Kyda: Used Persian rugs.

Dr. Keith Vester: [ turns to other side ] And your name?

Tallulah Bands: Tallulah Michelle Bands – my friends call me Tally!

Dr. Keith Vester: Business?

Tallulah Bands: Tally Bands Candy & Cakes!

Dr. Keith Vester: No sale?

Tallulah Bands: Well, uh.. my partner is offering to buy me out.

Dr. Keith Vester: And what’s her name?

Tallulah Bands: Kathy Ann McKenna.

Dr. Keith Vester: She’ll probably do okay. [ looks at young men seated next to her ] And, uh.. you two. What’s the story?

Tony: Yeah, I’m Tony, this is Ron. We’re dealers.

Dr. Keith Vester: [ confused ] In what?

Tony & Ron: Afghan hash!

Dr. Keith Vester: And you’re out of business, too?

Ron: Oh, no, no, no! Actually, we’re doing great, and supply is tight and prices are up. We got a couple bricks from our summer tour to Kabul, so we’re set!

Tony: Yeah, yeah. We just came to help out.

Ron: We gave a ride over here to Al Gezzera, and Sheila and Al Kyda, Tally Bands in our new Lincoln Blackwood.

Dr. Keith Vester: And, over here to my right?

Samuel L. Freelock: Yes, sir! My name is Samuel L. Freelock! But like Charles Durning, I’m only 52, but I look 70, so everyone calls me Old Sammy!

Dr. Keith Vester: Old Sammy?

Samuel L. Freelock: Yes, sir!

Dr. Keith Vester: And, might I inquire, sir, what is the nature of your business?

Samuel L. Freelock: Well, I manufacture custom-made scoops for the bulk retail cereal and confections trade! Yes, I do!

Dr. Keith Vester: And.. the name of your company?

Samuel L. Freelock: Old Sammy’s Bin Ladles! [ chortles ]

Al Gezzera: Uh.. please.. I’d like everyone to know the spelling of my name is G-E-Z-Z, I don’t have the word “gizz” in my last name.

Tallulah Bands: He’s been saying that since high school! [ laughs ]

Dr. Keith Vester: We’ve been talking with some people from Mt. Arab, New York. Up next, we’ll be diping in the valley mailbag. Let’s see.. [ grabs letter ]’s one from Mark Albert Lechman. He writes us from the Pennsylvania region, from the historic coal-mining town of Anthracite. [ opens letter, spilling white powder ] [ the guests run from the studio ] [ fade ]
