This Exclusion Day, archivists in the HartLife Tower have unearthed this Ancient Exclusion Day Story from before the Troubles. Let it instruct you, Loyal Policy, on the proper ways you should behave in this most festive of seasons.
In the grand tradition of Exclusion Day specials, this episode was recorded “live,” with practical foley and in one take at our recent holiday celebration down at HartLife studios. We’ve left in the laughter and merriment (and line flubs) to give you a feel of what it’s like to be in the studio. So, with no further ado, please enjoy the 2016 Our Fair City Exclusion Day Special: Die HartLife.

This Halloween, HartLife is proud to present “Beyond the Door” by Gabriel Urbina. If you’d like to hear more of Gabriel’s work, we heartily recommend checking out the excellent Wolf 359 at www.wolf359.fm. This episode stands alone, outside of the world of HartLife and Our Fair City.

Welcome, Loyal Polices, to the Mid-Season Break! While the MolePeople are busy editing the second half of the season, we’ve got some fun stuff to share with you. Today we’ve got two songs used in the background of the show, either in Al’s bar or on the radio, adapted and recorded by the cast, crew, and friends of Our Fair City. First, we have “Haul Away Mole,” a MolePerson Dirt Shanty (adapted from the traditional tune “Haul Away Joe”), followed by “Rolling Down to Tunnel Three,” a Lightning Rigger working song (adapted from Stan Rogers’ classic “Rolling down to Old Maui”).
