10:45 PM - 6:15 AM, Friday - Saturday, October 6th - 7th, 1995: SHOW 62
Well, OJ was found not guilty on Tuesday...and I was found up to my neck in debate all night long. The best show, the most challenging show, and in many ways the hardest show I've ever done. I opened with "Not Guilty" by the Beatles which has to be illegal. The song was never released and I have an illegal bootleg but I figured what the hell. All OJ, and race related for 6 hours. I actually started at about 12:25 because of the Reds, but I had an extra half hour hangin' around from this summer, and that makes up for it as far as my stats are concerned. I did barely get my BWF #29. And get this... no CT! There were probably 70 calls tonight. The race thing is 10 times worse than I ever thought it could be. I won't get into that, but it was a trying night. There were also so many compliments. I feel lucky, and somewhat emotional right now towards how lucky I am. I did very well upholding peace and non-racist views, which I didn't know was in the job description, but a good job nonetheless. I was going to tape this, but it's almost getting hard to tape, because listening to them again makes me relive how hard it was. Bob Conners talked about one of my callers that gets on his show and goes off as well. It was the first time Bob talked to me as a co-worker. It was amazing. He was nice and showed an effort to bring something up that wasn't necessary. Maybe he's not as bad as I thought. Oh, I'm giving my age away tomorrow. It's my birthday on Monday, and I'm going to have people guess my age. It's a fun way to get it out in the open the way I want to. I hope the people that truly know won't call in. I feel my first Sunday morning no-hitter coming up. I hope I'm right.

Well I truly have done the impossible. A no-hitter weekend. I relied on CT, but who cares. Got BWF #30 rather easily. Had the poll of my age. Anywhere from 25-33. There were only a couple guesses because talk was so heated. I never said over the air though. It didn't seem worth it. I don't know why I was so gung-ho before. I truly wonder now what's next. Now of course I'll do talk every night, whether I make it who knows. OJ was rampant once again and got old around 2-3:30, but then seemed to pick up. I still can't believe I did a Sunday morning no-hitter. You know, I really don't want to produce tonight and spend my first hours as a 20-year-old listening to Cannon. But I do need the money. Figured out how to do Perspective and it should be fine from now on. Ok, I'm dead tired.
