CRIER:

INTRODUCTION
(ANNOUNCER:, BASHT, FRARTHENTON, CRIER:)
OPENING MUSIC: "RIDE OF THE FESTIVE HOD CARRIERS"
Music low
ANNOUNCER:

Over the cobbled streets of Birmingham he
rides on his tame burro, Nancy...a load of
bricks on her back and her master sitting
sternly upright, always upright, upon a brass
saddle...it's Nurning Basht, Bricklayer!

STING
ANNOUNCER: (CONT'D)
Known to all the working class of industrial
England, Nurning Basht travels incognito over
the vast and surly tundra, aiding the weak,
saving the trustworthy, and straightening the
crooked frames of justice. With a flighty
"Hods and Honour!" he swoops from his Wall of
Fealty to smite the rotten and right the
swotten. Nurning Basht is coming to protect
those what that they need protecting, they
do!
STING; MUSIC OUT. NEW MUSIC: LOW, MYSTERIOUS.
HOOVES CAN BE HEARD
BASHT

Onward, Nancy, big feller. We must get there
afore that evil can be accomplished, we must.
Old Lady Kellerer couldn't hardly make do
without we're a helpin' her nohow, not after
the cement drought last autumn.

2.
FRARTHENTON

Aye Nurning, that she couldn't, no indeed
sir.

BASHT

Nancy! Is that you being a talkin' to me, is
it?

SOUND OF THE BURRO NEIGHING INTROSPECTIVELY
FRARTHENTON

Surely, it is not bein' the burro, dear
marster; have yer forgotten yer faithy
sairvant Tad Frarthenton, have yer?

BASHT
FRARTHENTON
BASHT

No.
Because I was just a thinkin'...
interrupting
Enough of your chartered musings, Tad young
feller; we'd best be off and on to Birmingham
proper.

FRARTHENTON
BASHT

Very well, my maister-Enough I say, you culturemouthed loon. Now,
have you the victuals and the disassembled
ladder we've been wanting to use for this
heroic bit of flummery, young Tad?

FRARTHENTON
BASHT

Well, I-Just answer the blooming question, you
insurgent puptent!

3.
FRARTHENTON
BASHT

--Mmm-hmm.
Excellent, my young craven, that's excellent.
What time is it, Tad? I cannot see my wrist
on account of my upright posture.

FRARTHENTON
BASHT

With your leave, maister...It's-Ye gadzooks me, there's not a moment to lose.
Say, I'm hungry. Do you smell radish pie? I'm
pulling over. Tie up the saddle and take
Nancy with you, Tad boy, and you'll see me in
my comestation mode, you will, aye, that's as
it is Tad my final lad.

FRARTHENTON
BASHT

O.-Quiet! There's a sale at dawn! Avant-- GUARD!

BRIEF GALLOPING AND THEN PULLING OVER ABRUPTLY
BASHT (CONT'D)

Avoid, there, Miss Molly Station, how many
pennies do you need for us to nab a parclet
of your fine radish pie with all the syrup I
like there now Molly young courtesan?...

ADVENTUROUS MUSIC UP AND FADE DOWN AS. . .
ANNOUNCER:

Soon afterward on the following Tuesday,
brave Nurning Basht, Bricklayer, and his
rusted companion Tad Frarthenton made ready
to begin preparations on his eminent plans to

(MORE)

commence thinking about the eventual

4.
ANNOUNCER: (CONT'D)
brainstorming for the pair's recent departure
from the Rampant Radish and Princess
harbinger's shop. As we approach we can see
them oiling up the brass saddle, and we hear.
. .
LOUD CLANGING OF A TOWN-CRIER'S BELL, BROKEN OFF SUDDENLY
BASHT

That's quite enough of that, young man, quite
enough indemnity doodly doo deed that. What
do you mean by that clangity noise then
anyway, I say?

CRIER:

Sorry sir, my bell got wet and I was trying
to flip its inveterate pieces dry by swinging
it airily around towards the forward place
and backwards from there towards the leeward
side of the bell, flinging yon droplets of
moist and fulgent water away. Works good,
too, see?

CLANGING RESUMES AND AGAIN IS STILLED FORCEFULLY
BASHT

I'd rather you'd have flang yourself away,
young individual, little Bellationumtot you
are. Skid and daddle now won't you laddies'
man? These heroics have been deployed several
minutes while you've been emblazoning around
the marketplace and made my radish pies fall
all over my shoes, they. . .I mean, I. .

(MORE)

5.
BASHT (CONT'D)

.that is. . .um...aye, that's the way of it,
you couthen frollope. On you go!

FRARTHENTON
BASHT

Off you go, venomous sprout!
I mean ON you go! Did you hear me through a
pie?

FRARTHENTON
BASHT
FRARTHENTON

Oh, I'll move it away. There, now, sir?
Where?
I...shall we save the lady Kellerer now,
Maister Basht, Bricklayerman?

BASHT

Yes. Onward.

SILENCE FOR A BEAT; THEN, LOUD GALLOPING STARTS SUDDENLY AND
FADES AS THEME RISES:
ANNOUNCER:

On that indefatigable note this week's class
action-packed installment will be
uninstalled, boys and young boys. You'll be
better off listening to tomorrow's episode
late last week, when you are likely to hear
me say, "Later that afternoon..." or
something akin to that, as it's my job and my
joy. That's on the next previous time you
hear the ongoing and outcoming story of
NURNING BASHT, BRICK LAYER!

MUSIC UP FULL AND OUT.
STATION BREAK
