Varjian, Leon, 1951-2015
After leaving IU, 1970s campus prankster and graduate student Leon Varjian continued his studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he continued his fun-loving ways. While living in Madison, Varjian and his friends co-produced local public-access cable television show The Vern & Evelyn Show at the Madison Community Access Center beginning in January 1980. The show starred two live mice (named Vern and Evelyn) and a cast of supporting actors (humans and mice) in a variety of humorous storylines. Show skits satirized politics, religion, and popular culture; music was provided by local bands such as Spooner (later the band became Garbage); and interviews with special guests included the likes of Allen Ginsberg. 

Special episode where fans of the show visit V&E, and are interviewed by Leon Varjian. The tape contains another, unrelated recording on the end as well.
