Mondo Diablo Episode 272 is Bacchanalia Part IV: The Death of Some Guy





We end this Opus with the story of PDQ's actual composing period, his relationship with Prince Fred and his cousin, Betty-Sue Bach, his death and burial, and finally, an interview of Peter Schickele, the discoverer of PDQ, by Tom Snyder.

Mondo Diablo Episode 269 is Bacchanalia Part I: The Last and Least





Welcome to the first part of a big three-parter!
