Revenge of the FRIK!
Space dynasties and empires are great and all, but some of us are cheering for the little guy - and that little guy is BABU FRIK. He's not a Jedi master or a Sith lord - he's just this little guy who fixes all the droids! He reminds us of Master Yoda's wisdom to not judge someone by their size - and while the Force may bind the galaxy together, it's the workers that make the galaxy work! Seems appropriate for the first show in the month of May - if you're not done celebrating #MayTheFourthBeWithYou, join us for #RevengeOfTheFrik!
Whether you’re rebelling in the bright center of the universe or resisting on the planet farthest from it, Phoole & the Gang welcomes you to the PhooleOut Shelter underground beneath Mos Waukee Spaceport via the HoloNet for intergalactic friendships, Old Republic classics, and First-Order-frustrating moderns. Phoole’s old friend R3X on Batuu powers up the playlist with outer-rim underground grooves. Positive music power keeps the Force with us as we stay strong against the Dark Side!

I'm excited about tonight's show, Show # 441, for these reasons:
I have loved Star Wars since I saw it during its first run in theatres in 1977.
Babu Frik is THE BEST.
We have the only-available-at-Galaxy's-Edge-Droid-Depot animatronic interactive Babu Frik doll, thanks to our dear pal Chloe going on a risky recon mission in the Outer Rim for us.
The new crawler and Star-Wars-Universe intro by Kassel Labs are the coolest, and it is so great to work with them every year to make this show happen.
The end credits, which I made myself, include the Phoole Patreon Platoon, because they help make the Phooliverse happen. Do you want to see your name in the end credits of future specials? Join the Platoon!
There is brand-new music in the show, that came out yesterday, because, in honor of the whole #MayThe4thBeWithYou phenomenon, Disney released a soundtrack album for the Galactic Starcruiser Halcyon featuring six new tunes from Gaya plus five tunes by other acts from across the galaxy.
We baked a lotttttt of Imperial Yellow Travel Biscuits for snacking on during the show, and I made a special box for them with the Empire symbol on the cover and everything.
I hope you can access our HoloNet frequency and join us live from beneath Mos Waukee spaceport tonight! Uncle Fweddy has a brand-new old-stock Ben Cooper C-3P0 mask (thanks to Ann's Nest on eBay) and everything!
