Thursday Timesuck: A Radio Prequel to the TV Show Frasier

If you were ever a fan of Frasier with Kelsey Grammar, you’ll know that his live-in father was a retired cop. Using this factoid as a springboard, a group of Chicago comedians created a 1950s-sounding radio show that describes how Frasier Crane’s parents met while at the same time solving a murder. And yes, there’s a holiday aspect to it. Fantastic. Additional details at Boing Boing.
