To create such a complex radio theater hour every week, Kellogg and Bev mix real life with fiction while recording in their cabin like home, and the surrounding woods and mountains.
"Lorie and I had to save those wild chicks anyway, so we did it in the voices of Lefty and Olive. What you hear is real but not real at the same time," admits Bev who improvises about half the show with his wife each week.
Bev recorded the couple's actually hike to the Red Hill Fire Tower some 3,000 feet atop the Catskills, complete with other hikers and a real park ranger telling its history.
These real life moments are blending with scenes of "flights of fancy" at the fictional Camp Waterlogg. This week, Kellogg as Mrs. Terwilliger and Bev as her sister get each other lost and the woods. They also voice the crowd of children. Bev as Adam Maxwell saves them in a hot air balloon.
This week's show also includes the continuing parody of TV's "Whale Wars" with Ellis and Elise on "Beluga Battles" and the cartoon "Balloon Actrobatics"
