Quite true.  The "host barricades himself inside the studio" stunt is
so old, it's probably getting Social Security checks by now.  That's
not to say the stunt can't be well done or entertaining; it sounds
like it was.  But don't kid yourself that it was for real.

And who said drama on radio was dead? :-)
