*Cigarettes and Rocket Fuel* is a podcast from the past, a show-within-a-show and *that* show is an as-it-happens radio talk show on (fictional) radio station KHCN-AM 4747 — Houston, Texas — covering the 1969 Apollo missions and the final sprint in the race against the Soviets to set foot on the moon.
KHCN's *Space City Sunday with Alex and Andy* delivers a digest of the week's top news from the war in Vietnam, politics for Washington, D.C., items of local interest and valuable ads for our listeners. Come for the Apollo drama. Stay for the 39-cent bacon.
Cigarettes and Rocket Fuel will lift off Feb. 28 and will continue weekly until America puts a man on the moon.
Music: *Crayola Girl* by Ferrill Gibbs, produced by Brent Busby.
