- Okay, this was show number three--- and things are really, really rough... not up to speed yet on what “Live on Tape” would become.  But one thing was certain, the character of Guy Newswarthy had been nothing but a jerk to Arnie so far. This was pointed out to me by John Horvath--- who’s wife had noticed it and asked him, “Why’s that Guy character so mean?” And she was right, Guy had to be stopped.  So we did an episode to give Guy a new ‘tude.
- This third, and final, installment of the “Help of Magnesia” was written and produced by one of the commercial directors at KLJB (Denise Hollmer).  This was by far the best of all the Magnesia bits--- and thankfully the last.

Live on Tape (Show #3)
Airdate: July 18th 1987
MOVIE - “The Car”
SYNOPSIS - Guy has become more and more agitated with Arnie.  He loses his temper at the slightest provocation and is a complete jerk.  Suddenly, and very mysteriously, Guy is captured by a group of space aliens who have been monitoring the show.  They have come to reprogram Guy and make him more pleasant.  And to compensate Arnie in the meantime for Guy’s absence, they leave behind plenty of bean-dip for him to munch on. But then...
...THE TRUTH COMES OUT!  Arnie, that BASTARD, has been drugging Guy’s coffee with methotyminide (a powerful mood disrupter).  Eventually Guy is returned to the newsdesk by the aliens, however he’s been brainwashed to the extreme--- annoyingly nice, singing songs, a goody-goody to the tenth power.  Gus and Arnie can’t stand it, but when they attempt to adjust his programming they turn Guy into the ultimate party animal- even Arnie can’t keep up with him.  With no other choice, Gus finally overloads Guy with power from the station’s transmitter and shorts him out, putting an end to it all... or does he?
    “Buzz Werner?  What the hell are you talking about?!  Now pay attention.”
