Radio Hell, a station meltdown!
30 January 2007 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

This TFTD episode is well done, it has humor, a good story, good acting, and teaches a good moral lesson. Jerry Stiller stars as a late night radio talk show host who takes listeners calls, and boy does he take it to the listeners! Stiller is very arrogant and rude as the host who always gives callers a hard time blaming them for all of the world's problems from social to economic and even for his bad luck of life! Simply this is a radio man with a big chip on his shoulder! However the calls go back in time from years ago, then slowly they take to work causing the station to blow up in smoke, and he changes slowly into the devil! This tale teaches a good lesson of guilt can haunt you and the past can come back to destroy you. A well done story with a good job from veteran funny man Jerry Stiller.
