Milky Way, planet Earth, next to the Pacific Ocean i.e. Santa Monica, CA (November 15, 2021) – Dear most esteemed journalists, it’s Pee-wee Herman here and I’m going to be a DJ in a new radio show airing on KCRW! I am so excited this is my very first! I mailed them a letter, which got lost (apparently!), Then tagged them on twitter and THEN they didn’t believe it was me until my biggest, best, most amazing fans call and call and block their phone lines (hey hey)! Thanks to the fans because they are going to get me donuts and leave me the keys to the studio while they are on vacation!
Join me and my friends Chairry, Magic Screen, Miss Yvonne and a few surprise special guests (TIP: they’re super famous!), As we listen to some of the best music ever recorded!
This is all happening on Friday November 26 at 6:00 PM PST, so you better get out your transistor radio and listen to my amazing voice!

Reubens has been playing his character Pee-wee Herman since the early 1980s. A 1981 HBO special starring Pee-wee led to a 1985 feature film, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure in 1985. This film took the edges the dirtiest of Reubens’ satirical “adult child” character and shaved them (a little) for a more family-friendly tone. The family appeal of Pee-wee’s Big Adventure spawned the children’s television series Pee-wee’s Playhouse, which aired on CBS from 1986 to 1991. Pee-wee’s Playhouse cemented the character as a mainstream staple, which has maintained its popularity for decades since. Reubens had a Netflix movie, Pee-wee’s Big Holiday in 2016, and now this radio show.
Pee-wee still has it.
