Jim & Kathy Ocean present "The MetaQuizzical Café"
If you're in the mood for something really different, then step into the 'MetaQuizzical Cafe' where Carl Sagan meets you at the door, Pete Seeger shows you to your table, Rod Serling hands you a smoke, and Tom Lehrer's banging pots in the kitchen. When the music starts to play, better watch the worm holes on the way. You're sitting in the MetaQuizzical Cafe.
