"You have now entered the Joan Zone: 
There is nothing wrong with your radio.
Do not attempt to adjust the antenna.
Do not attempt to adjust the audio.

We are controlling transmission.

 If we wish to make it louder, we will bring… Up… the VOLUME.
If we wish to make it softer, we will tune… it… to…… a whisper….

We will control the MICROPHONE. We will control the Machine that goes ‘Ping’.

We can talk German, and say words with der ümlaut.
We can transform your call sign into a mnemonic form—and then say, “CHEERS, Guv’nah!”
For the next hour…,
sit quietly, and we will control all that you hear (and hear and hear)…
We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your radio.

You are about to participate in a great adventure.
You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to –
The Joan Zone.”

 LOLOL — Joan
