Stories of The Century parodies radio soap operas of yesteryear. Each daffy episode presents an improvised story taking place within the unfathomably tall and opulent Century Building. Inside this self-contained microcosm of the outside world, listeners will find everything from a 1930’s movie studio to a radio broadcasting company. There are restaurants, dry cleaners, beauty parlors, florists, and even a pig farm. The adventures center around such characters as movie mogul Leonard Leroy, his blonde-to-the-brain secretary Miss Jones, washed up former movie siren Monique DuFromage, British blackguard and co-producer Cyril Sedgewicke, and Ed Nauseam, talent agent to the deformed. Yes, The Century Building has many stories and only The Spontaniacs! could make them this funny!
