The Mike Check Show Conquers The Martians: 7 YEARS OF WHACKIN'! (April 2018)

*(NOTE: For more MIKE CHECK SHOW Anniversary specials, click here)

This was "The Mike Check Show's" 7th Anniversary special, in April 2018, where Mike Check celebrated it on Mars....NO...Actually Mike was abducted by Martians and forced to spin the hits exclusively over on the red planet (...although the show was simulcast on Earth anyway, so whatever?).

So why did this happen? Well, in 2016, Mike played the Slim Whitman song from the film "Mars Attacks" in an attempt to kill "Zombie" Nathaniel at the end of that years' "Halloween Hootenanny". One year later, at the conclusion of "Halloween Hootenanny 2017" it was revealed that the song had also coincidentally killed off an evil Race of Martians. So the "good" Martians show their gratitude in Mike Check 'inadvertently' helping them win "The Great Martian War" by saving him and his daughter from STAN: The Evil Troll Lord and his son Damien from wreaking Havoc and imprison them in "The Phantom Zone" (similar to "Superman II"). They and also found Mike's music "fascinating" (as ole Mike would say) as it was a brand new concept for them. The Martians also promise to return in 5 months time but give no reason as to why? Doc Brown (from "Back To The Future") later arrives and warns Mike and his daughter of a future Martian newspaper headline that leads them to believe that The Martians may possibly want to invade or destroy the Earth on their return, for some odd reason?

During February 2018's "Love On The Ropes Month", the Martians make another appearance as they request a week of love songs from Mike, in which they found (again) "fascinating" and make the decision to return to Earth...but every time their "true intentions" for doing so is about to be mentioned, there is a break down in their communication signal. So during March, Mike still thinks that the Martians want to invade and tries to appease them by playing some "Flying Saucer" novelty song records. This eventually leads The leader of Mars, Kimar, to arrive to Earth on the 1st day of Mike's "7 YEARS OF WHACKIN'!". But even though he reveals that he comes "in peace", he also "abducts" Mike and brings him to Mars to be their deejay and to play the hits "that play well in their Market" (similar to the plot of the 1964 film "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians")...not just for Mike's Anniversary, but for the rest of his life!

(*Spoilers*) So during April 2018 (or whatever month/year it is on the planet Mars?) Kimar forces Mike to work "The Mike Check Show" in the Martian market and provides him some co-hosts; Checkdar, Jimdar and Gaiedar (the last two seem awfully similar to a couple of Wrestlecrap Radio Characters) until the show grinds to a halt as Mike has an "encounter" with Jimdar's wife that lands him back in 'The Slammer'. Mike is sentenced for execution but the whole proceedings are interrupted by the return of STAN and Damien when their "Phantom Zone" crash lands and shatters on Mars, thus freeing them. STAN plans to take over Mars, and later the Earth, but will his plans for "Universal Domination" be spoiled by the arrival of Doc Brown and..."The Crapvengers"'ll have to click on the following links to find out?
