Steve, The First
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (September 2010)|
Steve the First was a four-part dark comedy set in a post-apocalyptic future, broadcast on CBC Radio One in 2005. It ran on Saturday mornings from 11:30 - 12:00pm (half an hour later in Newfoundland). The basic premise is that a slacker wakes up to find he managed to sleep through the apocalypse, and now has the ability to telepathically communicate with his dog, and can cure people infected by a strange disease that causes them to melt. There is a bizarre power struggle between Steve and the evil Phil Green, vying to be mayor of what is left of Toronto. All of this is ostensibly told from the point of view of a storyteller who is recounting the tale 1,000 years later.
A sequel, Steve, The Second, was aired early in 2006.
Steve the First was written by Matt Watts, who also starred in the episodes.
