Part 4, Chapter 6 is now on AO3: These Foolish Things.

Gunnar preferred no radio, in general. But this one wasn't broadcasting Radio New Vegas. It sounded like a Super Mutant ranting some kind of manifesto. Next to the radio was a microphone. On terrible impulse he flicked it on. "Hello?"

Silence ensued, and his companions looked at him like he'd lost his mind.

Then the Super Mutant came back on the air. "Hey, you've interrupted my broadcast, dumb-dumb — so there had better be a good reason! What is it?"

"Aren't you the Super Mutant from the radio? I'm a huge fan." Gunnar looked up to see Arcade waving his arms in the universal "shut up!" signal.

"Why thank you! It's always gratifying to talk to one's fans. Hold on, I have something I need to do for a second."

Gunnar smiled to himself, pleased. It was always good to try talking to someone first. Then his face fell as the radio came back to life: "There's an intruder in the dish hut! Get over there and kill whoever it is, you fools!"
