    Surprisingly, the radio selections in San Francisco seriously fucking blow.

    I can't remember the last time I've ever wanted to listen to the radio. I like NPR, but they have podcasts of all the shows I listen to.

    There is basically no reason for the radio to exist in my world.

    Firsr panel... G&T have really gotten into the spirit of Mafia 2...

    Having everyone with a radio makes some good sense from the perspective of emergency notifications. But serioisly, RIAA? Do you think you're fooling anyone?

    I used to record my own radio show

    I think every kid used to do that

    all the songs I played on the show were the theme songs for the Disney Afternoon cartoons

    I did too

    A tape recorder was a BIG FUCKING DEAL to me and the fact that I was allowed to go outside with it was an even bigger deal

    I'm pretty sure all the tapes are long gone though. Only reason I'd want to hear them is because my grandma could be heard on a couple, but this was way back in like '92 or '93..

    maybe all the tapes are inside Gabe and Tycho's Mystery Murder Rug

    Yes!!! I made shows with my bestest friend. He did sports and I did music. If I recall correctly, Puff the Magic Dragon was the big hit that summer. Davey Crockett too? I think so.

    I bet my Mom has those in a box somewhere.

    Then I had a radio show in college for 4 years. That was awesome, even if it was functionally equivalent to playing music for myself in a basement since no one listened to the radio station at my school (except the poor sods in the dorm next to the transmitter who would pick it up on their coffee machines, doorknobs, and dental hardware.)

    Glad it's not just me. Looks like Gabe is walking backwards and Tycho is walking forwards, but the blood stain is in Gabe's direction.

    Yeah, I only use my car radio for my Zune and if it had an aux input I wouldn't even use the FM transmitter (piece of shit).

    Pwnan and I have differing philosophies on radio. While I never spent 15 hours agonizing over my playlists, knowing that there were probably about 5 or 6 people who were tuned in and actually paying attention to what I was playing, I still cared about what I did and I felt like I owed it to those 6 people to do the best show I could. And coming in late was something you tried never to do, much less being late every show. You'd be off the air in no time.

    Of course, maybe we just run things differently at WUSC-FM COLUMBIA, 90.5 WHOOP WHOOP

    Neville used to be a Wussie too! Wherever he is. That was before my time though.

    I did this with my MP3 player in my old car.

    It's not that we didn't care it's just that we ran a really weird show.

    I like to think our lateness and overrun would only add to the fact that nobody's going to believe "there was this crazy show that played techno that had Daft Punk's "robot rock" as it's intro..." and then they go on to describe how the local public access radio station that normally plays smooth jazz has a show that ends with the hosts saying "arabian goggles" as much as they can.

    Oh don't get me started on sat radio (we have SirXM at work). It's horrible. I mean, it's not as bad a commercial radio, but it's not much better. The damn INDIE STATION has a playlist so short I often hear the same song twice in a 5 hour shift. There's just no excuse for that whatsoever. Good luck keeping your sanity on any of the other stations.

    There is no excuse for you to have been late to your own show on a frequent basis. It doesn't send any other message than a lack of professionalism.

    If he liked it and his boss liked it and nobody else complained, what is the problem? It sounds like a lack of professionalism was the point, and I dig it.

    It wasn't really a boss thing. We were volunteering to do the show. There was no money exchange.

    Well most of your posts make people vomit in disgust, so I feel like I'm slaying some sort of garbage dragon.

    And it wasn't even my show. If I had my way we would have been on air as long as possible, giving people something to listen to other than classic rock stations.
