The first few seconds of theme music and my intoduction go to silent for 2 and 1/2 minutes while an Emergency Announcement is shared but not recorded. After this abyss of silence the show starts, and a short story by Ambrose Bierce is read. "The Famous Gilson Bequest" is one of the few humorous stories written by Bierce. And it is funny. This is the same Ambrose Bierce who later in his career went into Mexico during the Revolutions and disappeared.
