Show XXXVI of It's All Been Done Radio Hour was performed at MadLab theatre in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday, June 9th, 2018 at 5:30PM. It was written by Jerome Wetzel and Samantha Stark and directed by Nick Arganbright.
With the anniversary show looming, both Universe Journey and Daniel Kravitz, Chosen One ended with cliffhangers, both serving as the penultimate installments in the segment's season. UJ's episode was actually titled 'Part 1,' while DK's had a self-contained title, but is more serial in general.
Dan Condo had already left for his summer internship, but remotely recorded a three-line guest appearance for Captain Yeez in UJ. The role would be
recast the following month for a larger part. Similarly, Condo's character of Betram was left out of the two-episode showdown in DK, despite being part of the traitorous trio who served as the villains for the season. He was said to have died prior to this. Chase McCants was at Bonaroo, hence Dr. Who Grappa does not appear in this UJ, either.
The Topnotch Tangler saw Carson take on a secret identity in order to be a sidekick, the first of three secret identities he would make up before landing on a permanent moniker. This was also Marianne Dean-Jackson's first full-scale guest appearance.
A brand-new segment, Morning Show, was introduced.
The third of three Life With a Voice Actor commercials by Samantha Stark was performed. IABDPR was also brought back, a year after it had last been seen, with a new sister filling in for departed Kamomile, the actress who played Kam having left the troupe in 2017.

Marianne Dean-Jackson - Marianne was the fourth guest star in Radio Hour and this was her seventh appearance, her first large one. She played The Terrible Teleporter in The Topnotch Tangler.
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.
|"The Beginning of the End"||Rob Zombie||Universe Journey "All Good Things... Part 1"||...must come to an end.|
|"Ted, Just Admit It"||Jane's Addiction||Morning Show "First Show"||The song is about the sensationalism of news media as an entertainment product. As an added bonus, it heavily features the refrain "Nothing's Shocking" (the title of the album on which it appears), which also plays off of the name of one of the Morning Show hosts, Pat Shock.|
|"What's the Buzz?"||Lay Quiet Awhile||Morning Show "First Show"||A cover of the song from Jesus Christ Superstar, in which the choral singers repeatedly ask to hear the news from the lead, who thinks they shouldn't care about it. "Buzz" also plays off of "Shock," which I may have only just noticed as I was writing this.|
