Show XXXIX of It's All Been Done Radio Hour was performed at MadLab theatre in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday, September 8, 2018 at 5:30PM. It was written by Jerome Wetzel and Nick Arganbright, and directed by Nick Arganbright.
As per usual, despite massive story changes the past two months, Universe Journey opened the live show. It was followed by The Topnotch Tangler, the premiere of a brand-new (and first for the show) miniseries, Privates, and concluded with an episode of Packer & Ratcliff written by Nick Arganbright.
The Topnotch Tangler episode could be considered the third part of a trilogy, Carson taking on a third separate sidekick identity as he tries to win a spot as The Topnotch Tangler's sidekick.
This was the first live show where every troupe member that was available didn't have a part. Historically, there were always enough parts to go around, but in an effort to focus the stories, the guaranteed-role policy changed in late 2017, and this was the first month where it actually had consequences, with three available cast members not getting a part. Ryan Yohe chose to participate in theme songs and crowd reactions, despite not being cast in a speaking role. But Ryan filled in for a commercial when cast member Dan Condo came down with strep throat.

Anna Leeper - Anna was the 42nd guest star for Radio Hour, and this was her third appearance. She played Bad Rap in The Topnotch Tangler, her second time as that character.
Cast member Keith Jackson suggests songs that would go well with these episodes. The music was not used in the show, nor were any rights obtained.
|"Home"||Michael Bublé||Universe Journey "The Next Chapter"||Just as the song describes returning home after getting wanderlust out of the system, Who decides that she's ready to settle down on her home planet.|
|"Bad"||Michael Jackson||The Topnotch Tangler "Coming In Hard"||Bad Rap is bad.|
|"I'm Bad"||LL Cool J||The Topnotch Tangler "Coming In Hard"||She's so bad that she needs a supplemental battle rap to get the point across to you.|
