This is a long lost episode, never known to exist, Eion is making his CLL debut and only known appearance, a one and done appearance, this was recorded after his first two big jobs, guest starring on season one of ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ for the episode ‘The Pack’ and his starring turn in ‘Askewniverse’ sister project ‘A Better Place’ written and directed by Vincent Pereira the official Kevin Smith and “View Askew” historian, Eion is fresh from a two episode stint on ‘Dawson’s Creek’ and he’s promoting his short-lived series ‘Significant Others’, Eion would go on to star in ‘Band of Brothers’ and was about to start work on ‘Fight Club’. I haven’t even had time to listen to the episode yet, so this one is a surprise for all of us.
A quick update on episodes, #641 scheduled for release last week was discovered to be #644 and will be released next, episode #641 is now unknown, it seems to be a “new” episode but is sadly now lost to time, possibly forever. Listener Nic was able to determine that #635 is for sure a best of episode which means we probably have already aired it in the feed, so we’re not missing much unless they played a lost ep from 1997 but that’s unlikely. Listener Brad noticed that the F-bombs in ‘I Choose’ by The Offspring were not edited out, that is how the show aired without censorship by mistake and Listener Pete discovered that the closing 3-4 minutes of #630 is actually a chunk from #623, mysteries solved, thanks fellas!

Adam and Annabella Lwin sing a duet towards the end of the show which is thankfully now intact, well more intact than it was.

We now have the closing 45 seconds to complete this previously long lost show, the episode is from a Barenaked Ladies fan’s tape I transferred 5 yrs. Ago, the guests are making their 2nd known appearance on LoveLine with 1 visit from 1992 that precedes this one. Adam and the guys sing, it’s hilarious! This tape was chosen over the Kevin tape due to the high pitch whine vs. the static that sounds like waves on the unknown tape. Bunch of solid calls and comedy material, great episode!

Another lost recording, newly restored to the archive, it’s missing the closing break, 14 sec. or so after the 46 min. mark due to the tape flip when Kevin recorded it, it’s missing another 4 seconds about a minute later. 98% complete and the best we’re ever going to get.

Source – Kevin Tape (2016) with TobyDog Tape (2008) and Yoyoma02 Tape (2010) patches
This one is a bit complicated, we have over 5 sources for it but all of the sources recorded from the same 57 min. of the show with almost zero overlap, so this show starts about 20 min. in progress and ends about 10 min. early missing the final break and more, they discuss Adam’s ill-fated airport ride which makes it even more upsetting that the file is cut short.
From WikiForest for the Trees was a group started by Carl Stephenson in 1993. The project produced only a single full-length album during its duration. Self-titled, the album was released in 1997 after being delayed by a nervous breakdown that kept Stephenson from working on it for several years. Forest for the Trees produced only one single of note titled “Dream.” Forest for the Trees had many members, including John “coz” Acosta, Beck, Papa Bear Martinez, Mark Petersen, Don Device, David Strayer /drums, Chris Camacho/ bass and Jasper & Amadeus amongst others. One album remains unreleased as of 2006 being shelved by the now non-existent DreamWorks Records. In addition to be the creator of the group and producing, Stephenson plays violin, guitar, sitar, drums, keyboards and the didgeridoo. “Forest for the Trees is also beautifully infected with a collage of sounds from answering machines to dripping water to roller coasters, which bring a real-life aspect to rather abstract music.” The band performed at the 2002 Coachella Music Festival.
