It covers "Mrs. Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter" and "Ode to Billie Joe" as well as the popular live favourite "Bulldagger Swagger". The format of the show during Keister's tenure as host always included an opening monologue. Much of the material had a local flavor to it. In addition to Seattle politicians and celebrities, regular targets of the show’s barbs were various Seattle sports teams, local stereotypes, Seattle neighborhoods such as Ballard (Ballard, Seattle) (home of elderly Scandinavian Americans who parked their cars halfway onto sidewalks with the seat belts slammed in the doors), Fremont (Fremont, Seattle) and Wallingford (Wallingford, Seattle) (home of middle-aged hippies and New Agers), and suburbs such as Renton (Renton, Washington) and Kent (Kent, Washington) (perceived by the show’s young, urban viewers as a low-income, "white trash" town) and Bellevue (Bellevue, Washington) and Mercer Island (Mercer Island, Washington) (which had a snobbish, ultra-rich image). Other targets outside of Seattle proper included Olympia (Olympia, Washington) and Bellingham (Bellingham, Washington), both of which have hippie pothead (Wiktionary:pothead) stereotypes. Most, but not all, of the local references were removed for the Comedy Central version. The show also had promos for fake TV shows billed as "new shows on NBC for the upcoming season". Modern SR 410 was parts of various state wagon roads until 1926 when US 410 (U.S. Route 410) was established, extending from Aberdeen (Aberdeen, Washington) to Lewiston (Lewiston, Idaho), Idaho. US 410 was decommissioned after US 12 was extended over the majority of the highway in 1967, bypassing Olympia (Olympia, Washington) and Chinook Pass. A segment of former US 410 from Elma (Elma, Washington) to Olympia became SR 8 (Washington State Route 8) and the Tacoma (Tacoma, Washington) to Naches segment became SR 410. The highway was later shortened to end in Sumner and was replaced by SR 167 (Washington State Route 167) from Tacoma to Sumner. In 1913, the state highway system was adjusted again, and several new roads were added to the system, including parts of what would become US 410 (U.S. Route 410). The Olympic Highway (Olympic Highway (Washington)) traveled around the Olympic Peninsula and a section from Aberdeen (Aberdeen, Washington) to Olympia (Olympia, Washington) was later used as part of US 410. headquarters 3000 Pacific Avenue S.E.
